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.

Avatars will be looked up at Gravatar using the given e-mail address.
Get your own avatar for free at Gravatar.com and double-check the e-mail address in your Profile's User settings.

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!
[12-20, 10:15] <[TRVE]> Plenty. Though I can't imagine how you can willingly dive headfirst into shit.
[12-20, 10:05] <james-wang> panicking, what anime is there left to absorb myself into
[12-20, 08:31] <ravenleaf182> its over 200 crap? thats a lot of BS there
[12-20, 08:24] <Atlus> (´◔౪◔)
[12-20, 08:03] <vivan> and raws... I'm still trying to get your #490627
[12-20, 07:51] <sarachikorita> Detective Conan has a lot of crappy fansubs (especially between 126-467) too
[12-20, 07:31] <Zed100> cm punk can have my children.
[12-20, 06:25] <jesus11> Apology accepted.
[12-20, 04:51] <TheRogueX> I did hover over the icons, and I wasn't 100% sure I understood. Pardon me for deciding to ask for clarification.
[12-20, 04:40] <MasterRoshi> SAO 2 is the best anime this season and the most recent story arc is the best sofar
[12-20, 02:53] <xell17> the mystery of the mist.
[12-20, 02:40] <Artemix> Detective Conan is really good. If you want to cry blood from your eyes and lower your IQ.
[12-20, 02:37] <AtlantidaAnimes> Detective Conan is good. I recomend it. The mistery is very exciting.
[12-20, 01:43] <MCR75> Is Detective Conan actually good, or is it just like every other ridiculously long anime?
[12-20, 01:28] <kanbaru> san dimas high school football rules!
[12-20, 01:16] <ravenleaf182> you like that? you really like that? why did you code it that way, you could get more questions :O see, I just gave you two more, I can haz a cookie? (oooo, 3.)
[12-20, 01:06] <fatass420> CM PUNK WILL BE THE NEXT UFC CHAMP
[12-20, 01:00] <Nyaa> I like how some people ask questions like that instead of clicking on a category to see what's what (or hovering over the icons).
[12-20, 00:55] <xell17> Green: Non-English Purple: English
[12-20, 00:54] <TheRogueX> What's the actual difference between the green "Anime Sub" and the purple "Anime Sub"?
[12-20, 00:35] <newbsrus22> It wasn't a good anime and the dub probably won't be good but I want to see the dub for the ambition of oda nobuna
[12-20, 00:04] <ravenleaf182> its a bit redundant, but its unknown cus its unknown, the only way to see if it will work is to try. You won't lose anything by trying
[12-20, 00:02] <TheRogueX> Ok, so I can go ahead and try to download it?
[12-19, 23:55] <[TRVE]> Not necessarily.
[12-19, 23:46] <TheRogueX> Curious, I'm new here (Hi everbuddy!).. a status unknown torrent I guess is dead?
[12-19, 23:36] <Nyaa> The comments on that torrent's page suggest the file is somewhat broken.
[12-19, 23:34] <Nyaa> Load the torrent belonging to that file and recheck it there.
[12-19, 23:34] <Nyaa> Well, duh. You need to install HashCheck to have that. Not that it matters when the file name doesn't have a hash anyway.
[12-19, 23:31] <Artemix> This is the file: [HorribleSubs] Gintama - 209 [720p]
[12-19, 23:31] <Artemix> I don't have that tab in my file properties.
[12-19, 23:12] <Nyaa> Verify the CRC32 hash that you might have in the file name using something like this. Also, yes, stop using VLC.
[12-19, 23:09] <spess> well vlc being shit is normal, but the file might be corrupt or incomplete
[12-19, 23:09] <Tenkuu> Don't use VLC.
[12-19, 23:07] <ravenleaf182> everyone is all freaking out about delays and seeds, I'm just sitting here eating my cheese shell pasta.
[12-19, 23:06] <Artemix> Do anyone know why sometimes an anime episode is like 40+ mins long but the extra 15 mins is a lie and when I click there the VLC crashes or something?
[12-19, 22:59] <Sparklez> terra formars delay, Nooooooo
[12-19, 21:58] <OnDeed> works at least on Z3740 in transformer t100ta
[12-19, 21:58] <OnDeed> @vivan - dunno if that happens with evr... but you can also use madvr, actually - just set the scaling to dxva mode
[12-19, 21:52] <Soran-Ibrahim> http://yander.es/deadfish/ xdcc bot
[12-19, 21:49] <fruiteaterz> @ibrahim what do you mean by bot? how do i do that?
[12-19, 21:45] <Soran-Ibrahim> Ask Deadfish and stop spamming. Or check Deadfish's bot.
[12-19, 21:23] <King_saud> hello
[12-19, 21:21] <xell17> fuck off
[12-19, 21:07] <vivan> libass is awesome too. I'm wondering if it could be possible to port xysubfilter to windows phone...
[12-19, 20:59] <jofs> Decent. Need sleep. Like NOW! :p
[12-19, 20:58] <jofs> Decene
[12-19, 20:58] <jofs> [TRVE]: Decenet price.Will check it out. Thanks for the tip :)
[12-19, 20:55] <vivan> I'm fucking anoyed by how terrible android video renderers are on 4.6" screen... Stuttering everywhere, harcoded bt.601, shitload of banding. I don't even want to try a tablet.
[12-19, 20:53] <vivan> it still has 8 bit precision and causes banding
[12-19, 20:52] <Mayobe> Argevollen fucking sucked
[12-19, 20:50] <OnDeed> you'll hardly be able to see anything, so as longa s it doens't screw up levels and colormatrix, you are fine
[12-19, 20:50] <OnDeed> seriously tho, scaling and rendering probably aren't very important on a blood 10" screen
[12-19, 20:48] <OnDeed> Intel has implemented lanczos scaling in their gpu drivers, so EVR shoudln't be bad on said Atom
[12-19, 20:41] <MisterDonut> use mpc-hc's EVR or whatever it is called
[12-19, 20:25] <vivan> nice joke
[12-19, 20:25] <vivan> >watch >dont use madvr
[12-19, 20:02] <[TRVE]> Too bad Atoms are overpriced here.
[12-19, 19:59] <MisterDonut> 1080p that is.
[12-19, 19:58] <MisterDonut> you can even watch 10bit on an atom z3735. just dont use madvr.
[12-19, 19:56] <UnPro> Could someone be kind to upload maria holic season 2 dual audio :o? thanks
[12-19, 19:56] <[TRVE]> PSP and DS emulation depends on the game. Disgaea 1 runs smoothly, Golden Sun is slow as hell, for example.
[12-19, 19:51] <[TRVE]> , so is the casing. I'm thinking of getting a tablet with a better CPU and more RAM so that maybe I can watch 10-bit 1080p. Other than that I'm quite happy.
[12-19, 19:48] <[TRVE]> jofs, I use an Asus ME173X aka. MemoPad HD 7, stock Android, unrooted. 10-bit 720p plays fine, 10-bit 1080p doesn't. External sound is crappy
