The SRS levels in Wanikani are named and you have to get each radical to "Guru" to unlock the kanji that use it. Then you have to get each kanji to guru to unlock the vocab that uses it. When 90% of the kanji for a level have reached guru, the next level unlocks and all of the radicals at that level and any of the kanji and vocab that only use items you've already guru'd become available.
It's designed to limit burnout and give people the psychological rush to keep going. That said, the number of reviews can still become enormous.
