General policies:

Spoilers: If you post these without using the [spoiler] tag properly, you can be sure that your account will eventually be deleted.

URL redirection services: These are removed on sight along with their entries.

Advertising: No.

Content restrictions: This site is for content that originates from and/or is specific to China, Japan, and/or Korea.
Other content is not allowed without exceptions.

Flooding: If you have five or more releases of the same type to release in one go, make a batch torrent containing all of them.

www.Nyaa.se is for work-safe content only. The following rules apply:
  • No pornography of any kind.
  • No "extreme" visual content. This means no scat, gore, or any other of such things.
  • "Troll" torrents are not allowed. These will be removed on sight.
sukebei.Nyaa.se is the place for non-work-safe content. Still, the following rules apply:
  • No "extreme" real life visual content. This means no scat, gore, bestiality, or any other of such things.
  • Absolutely no real life child pornography of any kind.
  • "Troll" torrents are not allowed. These will be removed on sight.

Upper limits on video resolution based on source:
  • DVD source video is limited to 1024x576p.
  • Web source video is limited to 1280x720p or source resolution, whichever is lower.
  • TV source video is by default limited to 1440x1080p. The BS11, BS-NTV, NHK-BS Premium, and WOWOW channels are limited to 1920x1080p. SD channels, however, are limited to 480p.
  • Blu-ray source video is limited to 1920x1080p.
Naturally, untouched sources are not bound by these limits.

Finally, a few notes concerning tagging and using other people's work:
  • Do not add your own tag(s) when reuploading an original release.
  • Unless you are reuploading an original release, you should either avoid using tags that are not your own or make it extremely clear to everyone that you are the one responsible for the upload.
  • If these policies are not obeyed, then those torrents will be removed if reported by a group or person commonly seen as the owner of the tag(s). This especially applies to remake torrents.
  • Although only hinted at above, we will of course remove any troll torrents tagged with "A-sucks", "B-is-slow", or such if reported by A or B.
  • Remakes which are utterly bit rate-starved are not allowed.
  • Remakes which add watermarks or such are not allowed.
  • Remakes which reencode video to XviD or worse are not allowed.
  • Remakes of JPG/PNG-based releases are not allowed without exceptions since there is most often no point in making such.


Web site features:

The search engine is located at the top right, and it allows users to search through the torrent titles available on the site. Results matching either word A or B can be included by typing a vertical bar between them (|). Results matching a certain word can be excluded by prefixing that word with a hyphen-minus (-). Phrases can be matched by surrounding them with double-quotes ("). Search results can be filtered by category, remake, trusted, and/or A+ status and then narrowed down further by age and size ranges. Sorting can be done in ascending or descending order by date, amount of seeders/leechers/downloads, size, or name. The search engine adapts to the current view and makes it possible to search for specific torrents in a specific subcategory from a specific user.

Blue entries:
  • Torrents marked as A+ quality are blue in the torrent lists.
  • These are exclusive torrents picked by us.
  • They represent the best available version of this content.
  • There will be no duplicates.
  • Only versions that we actually consider worthy of a seal of approval will be listed.
Uploaders are encouraged to leave a complete description of the release on the torrent information page. This is especially true for batches.

Green entries: Torrents uploaded by trusted users are green in the torrent lists.

Orange entries: Torrents must be marked as remakes if any of the following applies to the release:
  • Reencode of original release.
  • Non-v2 (or non-v3, etc.) remux of original release using a similar source.
  • Reupload of original release using non-original file names.
  • Reupload of original release with missing and/or unrelated additional files.

Grey entries: Hidden torrents are grey.

The tools to manage your torrents are located right above the torrent's details on the information page. Editable fields are the torrent's title, category, description, information link, metadata, and the alias and key fields which are explained on the page. It is also possible to hide the torrent which prevents it from being displayed in lists or even delete it altogether.

Pseudo-anonymous uploads are torrents that will appear to be uploaded by Anonymous, but you can still manage them through your account.

Flagging torrents points them out for moderator review. Torrents can be flagged by clicking on the link located in the upper right corner of their information pages.

RSS is a useful Web feed that automatically updates when a torrent is added by a user. Many programs such as popular BitTorrent clients, which can be set up for automatic downloading, can make use of RSS feeds. The RSS feed link is dynamic which means that it will - like the search function - adapt to the current view, search results included.

The chatbox is the messaging area at the bottom of the site where only validated accounts are allowed to submit messages.
Basic guidelines to keep in mind here are:
  • English only.
  • It is not for site support.
  • Requests are not allowed.
  • Insulting our sponsors' artful creatives will earn you a kick.
  • Apart from the above, it's all about democracy.

BBCode user input is parsed by the chatbox, torrent descriptions, information links, and torrent comments, and they all support basic BBCode like [b], [i], [s], [u], [left], [center], [right], [code], [email], [img], [url], [color], [font], [size], [quote], and [spoiler].

The upload page returns various HTTP status codes in order to simplify automated uploads. The following details the custom codes used:
  • 200 OK: The ID of the uploaded torrent can be found in the Record-ID header.
  • 418 I'm a teapot: You're doing it wrong.
  • 460 Missing Announce URL: You forgot to include a valid announce URL. Torrents using only DHT are not allowed, because this is most often just a mistake on behalf of the uploader.
  • 461 Already Exists: This torrent already exists in the database.
  • 462 Invalid File: The file you uploaded or linked to does not seem to be a torrent.
  • 463 Missing Data: The form is missing required data like the category and/or the checkbox which confirms that you have read the rules.
  • 520 Configuration Broken: Server-side error. Wait for a few minutes, and then notify Nyaa if the problem did not go away.


IRC policies:

The IRC channel is only for site support.

Read this to avoid getting banned:
  • Do not sit around if you do not need site support unless you have voice/+ access.
  • Requests are not allowed. We only manage the site; we do not necessarily have the material you want on hand.
  • We do not know when A or B will be released, if it's authentic, or anything about a particular release. Do not ask.
  • XDCC, similar services, and their triggers are not allowed.
  • Use English only. Even though we aren't all from English-speaking countries, we need level ground to communicate on.
  • Do not send private messages to the staff. Ask your question in the channel on joining and wait; a staff member will respond in due time.
Keep these things in mind when asking for help:
  • We are not interested in your user name. Paste a link to your account if you want us to do something with it.
  • Provide as many details as possible. If you are having trouble submitting any kind of entry, we want to know everything about you and what (except any passwords) you supply to the form in question.
You need to be logged in to use the chatbox.
[Omnicat] <Nyaa> We will of course be playing Star Citizen. If you have a game package, you can join our subversion efforts right here. See you in the 'verse!
[10-21, 03:42] <Stinky Cheez> Adhiesc, if that sentence is representative of your English skills, yes, they're that horrible o.O' ... Remember, you need fluency in BOTH languages for it to go well.
[10-21, 03:42] <xell17> You couldn't even formulate these 2 questions properly.
[10-21, 03:40] <Stinky Cheez> A lot of people recommend PotPLayer, as well, but I haven't bothered with it. I also don't bother with madVR and etc.; it's just too much effort for a quality difference that - as you note, MCR75 - can be difficult to perceive, and can be a significant load on a weaker CPU. MPC-HC plays every video file I care to throw at it and doesn't have VLC's absolutely SHITTY interface. VLC is also still an ongoing bugfest), and its scaling algorithms are... Well, let me put it this way, I can't easily see the madVR improvement, but I can see where VLC fucks shit right up. Make sense?
[10-21, 03:39] <Adhiesc> Is my subs are that horrible? (On Tamako Love Story, yesterday) -,-a Can anyone point where is the horrible side?
[10-21, 03:36] <Stinky Cheez> MPC-HC + madVR and etc. IS more CPU-intensive, yes, but you also don't have to use all that with MPC-HC, which is still superior (by far) to VLC. The only area where VLC shines is playing broken/unfinished files (when previewing videos from eMule, say). Both CCCP and K-Lite are good codec packs; CCCP is more specific to what you'd want for anime watching, while K-Lite is MUCH more general (can be more useful, but also has a lot of stuff you may not ever need).
[10-21, 03:27] <Abunja> this site doesn't recommend the use of VLC, or rather, prefer the use of MPC-HC as player. your call, MCR75. i use MPC-HC+madVR+xy-SubFilter and never had a problem (except on some parts of a show with heavy typesetting, e.g. Kaylith's zankyou no terror episode 5)
[10-21, 03:20] <MCR75> Never heard of klite before, what advantages does it have?
[10-21, 03:04] <Faggosaurus> but i prefer vlc + klite
[10-21, 03:03] <Faggosaurus> yes
[10-21, 02:59] <herkz> ...
[10-21, 02:59] <MCR75> Does that mean that VCL+CCCP is better or just faster?
[10-21, 02:55] <xell17> CCCP*
[10-21, 02:55] <xell17> >VLC+CCP
[10-21, 02:53] <MCR75> I have been trying to use MPC-HC+madVR+xy-VSFilter and its been much choppier than VLC+CCCP, and the quality increase is negligible. Is the problem in how I installed it or is the MPC thingy just more resource heavy?
[10-21, 02:39] <penguin-fever> ~Seid ihr das Essen? Nein, wir sind der Jäger!~
[10-21, 02:37] <penguin-fever> What are you talking about? It's an awesome song. I can't get it out of my head.
[10-21, 01:58] <kill_la_kill> @Senzura: alrady one in other site link this to me (SiM - Silence iz mine) and tnx to you anyway:D
[10-21, 01:57] <Senzura> either way its garbage why would you want it?
[10-21, 01:56] <Senzura> single isn't out yet
[10-21, 01:55] <Senzura> performer is named SiM
[10-21, 01:38] <kill_la_kill> Shingeki no Bahamut OP, were can download album or who the singer?
[10-21, 01:33] <Groom> @Abunja: i think Gintama good chose tnx d(o_-)b
[10-21, 01:10] <Abunja> It's not even magic, Mr. Nyaa. Means that they aren't smart (or rich) enough to have a "smart" TV.
[10-21, 00:39] <fibre> Am I expecting additional black circles around the karaoke lyrics or what?
[10-21, 00:33] <HerbalNekoTea> @FourChannel Too late, but you missed nothing but shitsub.
[10-21, 00:32] <Nyaa> My "smart" TV does MKV via HDMI. It's like magic.
[10-21, 00:22] <Prazision> 't say i'm surprised, tbh
[10-21, 00:21] <Prazision> can
[10-21, 00:21] <Prazision> >trve >having shit taste in music
[10-21, 00:20] <Abunja> @Groom, dragon ball, detective conan, one piece, gintama, naruto. anything i missed?
[10-21, 00:19] <NoobSubs> Lmao!
[10-21, 00:13] <crf> Thank god NoobSubs does re-encodes. I don't want anyone being exposed to quality.
[10-21, 00:10] <Groom> prefer anime to watch (old) more then 50 episode ?
[10-21, 00:01] <SneakiestNEG> Deadfish clearly names their source of the subs. If it comes from Commie they say it. They are not passing ither people work as their own AFAIK.
[10-20, 23:58] <SneakiestNEG> Yellow subtitles are the worst. I saw them a lot with dvd rips of old shows. Deadfish is great for smart tv since those don't do MKV. Deadfish uses Commie fansubs a lot.
[10-20, 23:50] <Artemix> I thought Gintama was the only anime that featured profanity in their songs.
[10-20, 23:39] <NoobSubs> Thank god Commie censored the OP lyrics for episode 04 of TERRA FORMARS. I don't want children being exposed to such offensive language.
[10-20, 23:20] <Groom> after watch Akame ga Kill - Log Horizon - Sword Art Online... end of life +_+' gloomy also
[10-20, 23:07] <FourChannel> Anyone know where I can torrent Tamako Love Story (Tamako Markets movie) at?
[10-20, 22:39] <[TRVE]> More like musical sleeping pill.
[10-20, 22:20] <jofs> #drunkassfuck
[10-20, 21:54] <junh1024> repair as in ...?
[10-20, 21:53] <shaddrag> Chibi specials FTW
[10-20, 21:38] <cyatek> just the first
[10-20, 21:37] <Artemix> Are AOT OVAs worth watching?.
[10-20, 21:32] <shaddrag> Boku no Pico
[10-20, 21:24] <HerbalNekoTea> Anyone know how to repair a m4a audio track ?
[10-20, 20:46] <shaddrag> Sorry NoobSubs, maybe next time ^^
[10-20, 20:45] <NoobSubs> nvm then.
[10-20, 20:41] <shaddrag> OVA 2 is only coming in February 2015.
[10-20, 20:36] <kill_la_kill> were can found Nisekoi OVA "2" i just found first episode ?
[10-20, 19:54] <shaddrag> Cadbury Top Kek
[10-20, 19:49] <Senfu> top kek
[10-20, 19:44] <MisterDonut> kek
[10-20, 19:37] <NoobSubs> Does anyone need help seeding? I can temporarily help.
[10-20, 19:36] <shaddrag> And she does Gohan amd Goten's voices, as well as Bardock. She got skills.
[10-20, 19:35] <sarachikorita> His VA's 77 and still voicing him, screams and all.
[10-20, 19:30] <Artemix> The only thing I hate about DBZ with Japanese voices is Goku's voice.. he is like 20+ and speaks like if he is 5.
[10-20, 19:19] <shaddrag> Nope, it was just after I released my v1 of it because I couldn't wait for EveTaku who is only just getting started on it now.
[10-20, 19:17] <webtax> i think there were only raws here when they posted it, i'll keep an eye on the next one
[10-20, 19:02] <shaddrag> Well yeah, they got the Nisekoi OAD subs from here too.
[10-20, 18:54] <webtax> it's possible, tough they published last tuesday (14), it's been the same with ovas from nisekoi, noucome, mangaka-san and couple others i have been keeping an eye
[10-20, 18:53] <shaddrag> cyatek is probably right. I watch Kai and enjoy it, if you love DBZ, there's no reason not to. Also watching in Jap is a different experience completely if you're used to English Dub, so it's almost like a second first time xD
[10-20, 18:50] <cyatek> they probably used the one that was here earlier
[10-20, 18:42] <Artemix> Because its the same..?
[10-20, 18:41] <webtax> oh but i'm talking about OADs and movies for example tamako
[10-20, 18:26] <frostyon420> been a dbz fan for years. any reasons not to watch kai?
[10-20, 18:10] <MisterDonut> they just rip CR webtax
[10-20, 18:05] <shaddrag> Random peeps who do TLs who are afraid of NT hate and herkz. People who left before like F.B.I. xD
[10-20, 18:03] <webtax> how come those unofficial streaming sites have translations so early? do they have like their own paid translation staff ?
[10-20, 18:03] <MisterDonut> Deadfish is good if you're watching cartoons on your phone/tablet for some reason. saves battery.
[10-20, 17:48] <vivan> the only good thing about remakes is that you can filter them out.
[10-20, 17:40] <Senzura> Artemix because everyone but Underwater is shit
[10-20, 17:39] <HerbalNekoTea> The only good thing about remake's when some seedless old show got a remake.
[10-20, 17:29] <shaddrag> convert*, they don't translate anything. And yes, mkv seems fine to you so you can filter remakes in your user settings as you have no need for them.
[10-20, 17:27] <Artemix> I see, so they translate it to mp4. Maybe I never needed other format because I always play anime on my PC.
[10-20, 17:19] <cyatek> ah k, thanks for the warning
[10-20, 17:17] <HerbalNekoTea> Yep, herkz and some other member of commie looked at the sub, it was chinese to english translated with google and they added honorific.
[10-20, 17:07] <cyatek> wait so the tamako sub that was here before is shit?
[10-20, 17:00] <jofs> Time to get drunk on chocolate stout and watch some glorious harem.
[10-20, 16:59] <nyaauser4848> blub
[10-20, 16:50] <shaddrag> Artemix, you're not new to NT, you should know the point and no, it isn't sad. Some re-encodes/releases are pointless, but DeadFish's are not.
[10-20, 16:50] <cyatek> they change it to mp4, so tvs and whatnot can play it
[10-20, 16:40] <Artemix> What is the point of distributing subs that other group made?, attention?. Sounds kind of sad.
[10-20, 16:36] <herkz> yes...
[10-20, 16:28] <HerbalNekoTea> So, i saw on twitter the sub of tamako love story was made with google translator ? That why they got removed ?
[10-20, 16:25] <tamako1986> ̿ ̿̿ ̿’̿’̵͇̿̿з=(◣_◢)=ε/̵͇̿̿/’̿’̿ ̿ ̿̿ ̿̿ ̿̿
[10-20, 16:19] <shaddrag> They get it from the best subs available at that moment in time, in their opinion.
[10-20, 16:03] <herkz> chyuu, obviously.
[10-20, 16:01] <Artemix> Yeah I mean, the sub quality, if they don't make the sub, then where do they get it from?.
[10-20, 16:00] <HerbalNekoTea> If you have an old toaster or an old dual-core or single core android device, deadfish are the best.
[10-20, 16:00] <giratina2009> deadfish good! mp4 smaller file, and easier to watch on tv compared to soft sub and mkv
[10-20, 15:59] <herkz> that's not saying much
[10-20, 15:55] <Groom> (ʘ_ʘ) ̿̿ ̿’̿’̵͇̿̿з=(◣_◢)=ε/̵͇̿̿/’̿’̿ ̿ ̿̿(╯°□°)╯
[10-20, 15:53] <shaddrag> Who said they suck? They're the best mp4 re-encoders.
[10-20, 15:52] <sarachikorita> Deadfish doesn't sub anything, they just re-encode for toasters
[10-20, 15:40] <Artemix> Is Deadfish any good?, they subbed Nanatsu.. but.. everyone say that they suck donkey balls.
[10-20, 15:05] <Senzura> 8===========D
[10-20, 14:51] <nitekatt> Tip of the day: Dont eat yellow snow!
