    Hello, sorry for the informal introduction and if this is in the wrong section. Anyways, I’m currently in university studying engineering, so I barely have any time and my progress has been slow. I’ve had Textfugu lifetime for more than 2 years I think, but I only really committed three months ago. Since then I’ve only completed seasons 1 and 2. Then I bought WaniKani lifetime recently because everyone is saying it’s better than Textfugu’s kanji.

    Now I remembered that EtoEto exists. These forums seem less active than a year ago, and Textfugu hasn’t been updated. Should I stay with Textfugu or move to EtoEto alpha (I found out I still have access)? Since I’m studying at such a slow pace I doubt I’ll hit the current end of EtoEto FUGU anytime soon. And after reading old forum threads, it looks like WaniKani is superior to Textfugu’s Anki practices, so I plan on fully moving my kanji practice there.

    So is the current Etoeto version a good enough replacement for Textfugu now? Should I stay? Should I move on to EtoEto? Or should I use both Textfugu and Etoeto, along with Wanikani (which I was originally planning to do)?

    thanks

    At the moment neither Etoeto or Textfugu will get you anywhere substantial. Get a textbook like Genki, because it’s a tossup when if ever Etoeto will be finished.

    Well what about I use either Textfugu or Etoeto, and then when I finish all that it can currently offer, I just move on to Genki? Which I will then ask again, is the current EtoEto preferable to Textfugu? I’m not gonna just move straight on to Genki, I paid for Textfugu ffs.

    Also either way I’m gonna also be using Wanikani alongside them too.

    Yeah, WaniKani replaces the kanji section of TextFugu, if you want to study the two together. EtoEto is intended to replace both, when it’s finished. I confess I haven’t checked it lately, but I’m not sure there’s a great deal of beginner stuff there at the moment.

    Whatever floats your boat my dude.

    The current beginner content on EtoEto as far as I can see covers about 1/3 of what is on Textfugu. Textfugu covers about half of a japanese 101 course, give or take.

    @Joel, does this mean I should stop doing the kanji practice on TextFugu altogether and subscribe to wanikani right now? I had originally planned to go through TextFugu completely and then start wanikani after.

    Yeah, if doing WaniKani afterwards was always the plan, then you’d be better off doing it instead – you’ll find there’s a lot of overlap if you study all the TextFugu kanji first.
