Recommended Posts

Notice: This discussion has been posted since the anime torrent website for NYAA is no longer accessible.

 

For those who download anime torrents, one of the more popular anime torrent sites has officially shut down its website, which offered subtitled and raw anime, manga and anime soundtracks. While there was much speculation as to why the site shut down, it has since been verified that the owner of the site decided to voluntarily deactivate the domain name for the site, citing recent EU rulings regarding copyright infringement. The news about the voluntary shutdown had came from several people who were close to the site, including some of the moderators. NYAA was one of the few remaining anime torrent sites that catered solely to the anime and manga torrent community. According to sources, the site is not expected to return and that the shutdown and deactivation of the domain was a preemptive move by the site owner.

Super sad that such a thing happened. It really was one of the best sites for torrenting anime. I'm glad I was able to download everything AMG related from it before it disappeared, but now it will be hard to find alternatives. I do know that there are some in the works, but with holes in the databases. 

 

It was a good run.
