I hope your studies are going well, and if they aren’t, well, read on for an announcement that might just motivate you to get back into the swing of things.
I’ll cut to the chase, Kitsun is having its usual annual lifetime sale, but with a big twist!
We are proud and very excited to announce the launch of our new Japanese language learning platform, MaruMori.
MaruMori is everything you could want to learn Japanese in specific. It’s the full package, it’s the whole picture, it’s the… steak and the potatoes. Basically, we wanted to eliminate the need to use multiple platforms. So we created an all-in-one, guided, gamified Japanese learning experience. It will take you all the way from absolute beginner to language mastery, and the best part is you can start anywhere. You’ll find hand-crafted grammar lessons, packed with detail and language secrets to impress your friends with, as well as reading exercises tailored to your level, so you can start reading real Japanese right from the start. Not to mention, we’ve curated an extensive vocabulary database, our own kanji learning system, and much, much more.
Needless to say, we think it’s pretty awesome, and we’re pretty sure you will too. But hey, feel free to try it out yourself if you’re interested in learning Japanese in specific!
And so in the spirit of the holidays, not only will the Kitsun lifetime subscription be on sale, but we’re doubling everything up, so you now have a one-time chance to bundle up a Kitsun and MaruMori lifetime membership at a, frankly, pretty incredible price.
MaruMori’s own individual early access sale is on now too, and the discount will be slowly decreasing over the coming weeks so the earlier you are, the bigger the discount.

This is mostly because we really wanted to focus on the Japanese language with our new project, making it a bad fit with Kitsun, where everything is as “dynamic” and “tweakable” as it can be. MaruMori is more about the content (grammar lessons, reading exercises, etc) and about offering an all-in-one solution for learning Japanese. Whereas Kitsun is more about being able to share community content, tweaking with settings for an optimal flow, or for learning more than one subject or subjects other than Japanese.
Nothing in particular! Development on both platforms will continue and we’ll keep improving them both.
In fact, Kitsun will also become better for Japanese learners!
E.g. One of the first things we will do is replace the datasource of the current Japanese dictionary in Kitsun, with the one in MaruMori. That way we can offer additional features on created cards in Kitsun too (like automatic pitch information).
We have also implemented account linking (at the MaruMori settings page) which will unlock a very special achievement, badge and title on MaruMori and will later be used to sync your known words between both platforms (if you use both).
If you already have Kitsun Lifetime and are interested in getting MaruMori, you’ll be happy to hear that we’ve also got a special deal for you, as our thanks for supporting us over the years!
Once you link your Kitsun account in MaruMori (settings page), you will get a special extra discount on top of the current discounted MaruMori price.
In any case, we hope you have a great holiday period and hope to see you around in the coming year as well! Keep on studying!
