Apparently they had some legal troubles or something, but this torrent site is at this moment down. I found this out when preparing to upload a torrent today.

Apparently there is a bare bones backup that you can still search their torrent database with and use Magnet Links.

I suppose you can also try this out.

Its a browser extension that supposedly turns all Nyaa links you follow into Magnet links for you. I do not add extensions in my browser often because of security reasons, but it's worth trying if you have no fear of extensions.

There is still no actual word from Nyaa himself. Even the rest of the Nyaa staff I've spoken to have no idea what is up.

They've even updated their IRC channel topic to say: There is no news. Topic will be updated when there is. In case it wasn't obvious to those lurking for updates: Don't PM us. We have no information.

So for now, everything you read on the internet is speculation & rumors.

The only thing we know for sure is all four nyaa domains (nyaa.se, nyaa.eu, nyaatorrents.org, and nyaatorrents.info) are set in a state that seems that a coordinated domain registrar takedown happened, or that a malicious user gained Nyaa's account and was able to set them as such. It could be either of those. But it seems to go one step further than that, as even the sites hosted on Nyaa's servers such as: Underwater, Thora, and Commie are offline as well, signifying that their servers may have been disabled or seized as well.

Unfortunately no one has seen or heard from Nyaa since a few hours prior to the site going offline. So we don't even know at this time if Nyaa was arrested, hiding scared, or if this was all done by his own choice. After all he supposedly just lost his advertising with j-list which was his source of income for Nyaa a few days ago, so it's also a possible that he simply threw in the towel and went out silently.

Until we get official word on the matter, take pretty much everything you read on the internet as pure speculation or rumor.


Nyaa let his staff know he took the site offline for good on his own accord and that it will not return.

Anyways, HorribleSubs has resorted to just using magnet links on their site. While other groups are simply going to utilize XDCC for the time being. And other groups are flocking to AniDex, AniRena, TokyoTosho, Fansub-Torrents, or Minglong. Though looks like AniDex is failing to handle the load and their site keeps going up and down and lagging terribly.

Some people are working on various Nyaa copycats/successors/archives. So we'll see what pops up.

This was Koby today in the irc chat
<~Koby> NyaaTorrents IRC channel has been updated with the topic: latest update: nyaa sent an email and confirmed it's gone for good. and yes, it was due to the EU ruling. and no, db is almost surely wiped.
..
<+kBaraka> well on the upside "a full NT replacement" is work in progress.
..
<~Koby> I'll see if anidex can get their shit fixed and in order, and if this "nt replacement" happens and if it's worthwhile.

I personally don't care if it went down since I rarely used it. Thanks for the notice though, so I didn't think your links were broken.
