I finally did it It only took me four years to really commit to it hahaThere's so much back and forth about whether or not RTK is a valuable method After many years of dipping in and out of learning Japanese with different techniues I'm at this point around an N3 level per my iTalki tutor's assessment though it's hard to judge because I learn a lot of random stuff out of order through immersion I had almost decided against RTK entirely after hitting roughly 600 kanji a year or two prior to when I started to focus on learning Japanese in a sustainable way this year consistency over intensity with a focus on fun immersion learning But as I was working through native content books games websites I realized how helpful it was when I ran into a word I didn't know but I already knew what the kanji meant And I realized how helpless I felt staring at a string of kanji whose lines were completely meaningless to me Because of this and because rote memorization feels like absolute torture I decided to finally focus and pursue the completion of this book alongside the kanjikoohiicom story database flashcards yeah yeah I should use anki whatever I'm so so happy I stuck to itOnly reason it's not five stars is because damn sometimes Heisig is so weird in how he decides how to present things

Don't let the method presented in this book turn you away The first time I read about this book I thought WTF When am I going to learn the readings of each character This is STUPID About 3 4 years later I realized that the method from my Japanese classes wasn't cutting it What method am I referring to The method where you learn the strokes for a particular character 2 or 3 readings of it and then repeatedly writing it ten times or hoping that it would stick in my memory past tomorrowMaybe that method works for you but if not I highly recommend picking up this book and using it with an SRS such as Memosyne Anki etc See AllJapaneseAllTheTimecom for detailsHeisig's method only concentrates on meaning and writing saving reading for later so this is a divide and conuer approach His reasons1 Chinese and Korean students who come to the Japanese language already know kanji just not the Japanese readings so they have a huge head start compared to Westerners2 Learning the writing and the meaning of each kanji puts you on the same level as them associating each character with an English keyword and a story for each of what he calls 'primitive elements' some of which correspond to traditional radicals Reading can then be learned on its ownAlthough by no means is it a scientific study I know of several people who have had great success with this book including myself I even know of a Chinese friend who came to the study of Japanese and just learned the readings and learned to speak and write fluently so Heisig's reasons make a lot of sense to meIf you can see the reasoning behind of all this then I would definitely get this book If not that's okay too; everyone has their own learning style
