Japanese Hiragana & Katakana Review is a kana character review tool aimed at upper-beginner and intermediate Japanese students. The application allows the user to review their ability to recognize each of the 46 hiragana or katakana characters from visual and audio cues. Performance is ranked by speed, mistakes made and review difficulty. The application will also highlight the user's weakest kana characters for further study. Features include voice samples from native Japanese speakers, Rumble Pak and DS Motion support. Cute bonus: the application will greet you appropriately depending on the time of day!

Tested and working with R6 Gold, R4 and No$GBA.

How to Use
The 46 kana characters will be displayed on the bottom screen in a random order. When prompted by the top screen (Normal difficulty) or by audio (Hard difficulty), search for and touch the correct character.

Rumble and Motion Support (if available)
The app will rumble if a mistake is made.
Hold L or R button then tilt the DS left or right to activate the hint mode, which removes 10 characters from the lower screen.
