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 NHK-BS Premium, BS-NTV, 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.

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:
  • 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!
[09-23, 09:52] <xDev> It's hidden up your ass.
[09-23, 03:38] <Abunja> herkz, does xDev have other hidden torrents?
[09-23, 03:15] <anon585> TOTY of the Year
[09-23, 03:11] <herkz> but #488386 is the best torrent on this website
[09-23, 02:52] <OneCrazyRussian> Don't ever seed #488386 PLS PLS PLS
[09-23, 01:30] <sranger> reseed at #461813 please!
[09-23, 01:30] <Artemix> Oh I already watched binbo, amazing anime.
[09-23, 00:37] <ravenleaf182> Yeah, only Japanese people would get gintama references. You should try Binbougami ga! instead Artemix
[09-23, 00:35] <()blivion> . . .
[09-23, 00:34] <()blivion> >Seems like an anime for Japanese people only
[09-23, 00:22] <Artemix> Oh I see. There are so many references in Gintama that sometimes I got extremely lost. Seems like an anime for Japanese people only :p.
[09-22, 23:30] <Ancient_totoro> If someone has Auarion Evol Part 2 with episodes 14-26 english dubbed. Please upload them. thanks.
[09-22, 23:03] <[TRVE]> Actually, the Gobi desert is in Mongolia.
[09-22, 20:33] <haseo> it's a chinese gobi. anime characters who are from china or wear chinese clothes usually say "aru" in the end of the sentence
[09-22, 20:26] <Artemix> Btw, what is this "aru" that Kagura says all the time in Gintama?, or at least it sounds like an "aru".
[09-22, 19:48] <jofs> Nerd Wars
[09-22, 19:47] <Artemix> Java sucks, everyone knows that. Actionscript is the best.
[09-22, 19:24] <SneakiestNEG> I like a cup of Java. The computer kind less so.
[09-22, 19:18] <SneakiestNEG> Wow HS is on a roll!
[09-22, 18:43] <deepeshchugh> wassup peeps?
[09-22, 18:39] <Basjohn> Ew Java, can we keep gore discussions out of here?
[09-22, 18:38] <Rentah> Any updates on the clearing of the censuring or BR versions of Tokyo Ghoul yet?
[09-22, 17:59] <[TRVE]> Your fucking Blu-ray player uses Java.
[09-22, 17:49] <OneCrazyRussian> Also anyone who doesn't distinguish JDK (the java used for developing things) and JRE (the java that you use) is stupid
[09-22, 17:47] <OneCrazyRussian> >you never do serious programming in Java >half of the real world runs on Oracle CC&B utilities which are Java+Cobol
[09-22, 17:24] <sarachikorita> This is why you never do serious programming in a language that needs an emulator (virtual machine) to run. :P
[09-22, 16:47] <()blivion> And nothing has really changed.
[09-22, 16:46] <()blivion> Yup. Java has been the free whore for skiddys and pros alike since it was conceived.
[09-22, 16:04] <REVELLIOM> Hello, world
[09-22, 15:42] <vipim> he
[09-22, 15:11] <haseo> nice and clean =3
[09-22, 14:52] <hazardous> this reminds me of Attack on Titan :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cjrmjknIDk
[09-22, 10:49] <shaddrag> Omg this spam
[09-22, 09:34] <memekontol> ooooooooooooooiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
[09-22, 08:46] <nitekatt> Java is a ****hole of vulnerabilities, as a whole layer of a thing being "in control" on your computer. Besides, it is a crapware, and many people just dont like the idea of having crapware in their computer.
[09-22, 08:29] <Abunja> I think they won't, but IDK why the hate for Java.
[09-22, 08:22] <()blivion> I have been using Tixati for the last month or so and it's great so far. No dependencies, no ads, no bull shit. And it's updated regularly.
[09-22, 08:20] <()blivion> At the risk of getting censored out of chat for speaking against something nyaa supports, I would recommend against Vuze. No one should trust Java with an internet connection, period.
[09-22, 08:14] <Abunja> yeah, but she will be good after, like 8 years.
[09-22, 08:03] <nitekatt> yet you regret it, I can even smell a pedobear stirring inside you
[09-22, 07:52] <Abunja> except I really do, or should I say an acquaintance of mine. too bad, i'm not into loli
[09-22, 07:31] <nitekatt> oh not again, those animetards keep on pretending they actually do have a female friend...
[09-22, 07:07] <Abunja> s previously watching mahouka, she said.
[09-22, 07:06] <Abunja> well, its not really a joke, except that she's probably been trolled. she'
[09-22, 05:29] <Vorthos> hahahaha another Boku no Pico joke how edgy!!
[09-22, 05:14] <Abunja> maybe my friend is not into hardcore stuff yet lol
[09-22, 05:03] <baku16> Does anybody kno
[09-22, 05:02] <Ancient_totoro> Anyone know where I can download all the english dubbed of aquarion evol, not just the first 13 episodes?
[09-22, 04:59] <enshiu> nothing found of boku no pico
[09-22, 04:39] <HerbalNekoTea> Boku no pico's wrong but not hardcore like Sensitive Pornograph (which this one's in the top 300 on mal)
[09-22, 04:31] <Abunja> talking about boku no pico, i had a fujoshi friend who watched it for the first time and it really disturbed her
[09-22, 04:29] <Abunja> herkz pls
[09-22, 03:36] <herkz> boku no pico
[09-22, 03:29] <Elfman> anyone know any cool new anime to waatch
[09-22, 03:17] <Abunja> @Kuroquel, watamote 2. ofc, im just kidding.
[09-22, 02:26] <Stinky Cheez> I don't, however, recommend the newer versions of UTorrent, although 3.4.x MAY be better than the rest of the 3.x.x series.
[09-22, 02:23] <Stinky Cheez> Vuze is a lot porkier on RAM, and a bit harder on CPU, but also (esp. with plugins) does some things no other client does, or at least very few do. For example, load-balancing across more than one internet connection
[09-22, 02:22] <Stinky Cheez> I actually keep Vuze as a backup to uTorrent 2.2.1
[09-22, 01:59] <FapHazard> thanks Stinky Cheez, bc i want to see which one would be better to use..
[09-22, 01:47] <Kuroquel> Do you guys know an anime like watamote?
[09-22, 01:39] <Stinky Cheez> FapHazrd, while actually running both at the same time is counterproductive, neither installing or executing both at the same time will cause many problems.
[09-22, 01:33] <Abunja> good luck on completing that torrent, vivan
[09-22, 00:47] <MysticVortex> Guess its not finished yet...
[09-22, 00:45] <FapHazard> can i install both vuze and utorrent? will they have a conflict on the performance?
[09-22, 00:45] <MoJo-X> oops
[09-22, 00:45] <MoJo-X> Vanquished Queens
[09-22, 00:14] <vivan> you'll need time machine
[09-21, 23:50] <MysticVortex> Guys, do you know where I can download all 4 episodes of Vanquished Queens?
[09-21, 23:44] <Shunhades> Just copy and put in search here in Nyaa.
[09-21, 23:06] <NoobSubs> I can't read Chinese so I cannot help you.
[09-21, 23:02] <Shunhades> Does anyone have 風魔の小次郎 聖剣戦争篇 at 100%? If so could you please seed. Thank you.
[09-21, 22:34] <ShadowPvP> talk shit about illuminati again m8
[09-21, 22:21] <vivan> wtf with all those fake chinese uTorrents? o_O http://i.imgur.com/NVKS60K.png
[09-21, 21:54] <sarachikorita> The ideal size for an encode is the size that best provides the desired quality at the target resolution.
[09-21, 21:20] <Prazision> I think you might just be an idiot.
[09-21, 21:19] <dongus> anime doesnt deserve any filesizes at all
[09-21, 19:32] <MoJo-X> @ [TRVE]: Don't know about that. I just looked at some of the screen shots, and might just give it a try sometime. Seeing that it's on BakaBT's white-list, I don't think it's used for ratio cheating anymore.
[09-21, 19:28] <hazardous> blame illuminati. it was them. they are everywhere. they are destroying animu ;_;
[09-21, 19:25] <jerxou> yeah of course, but still horrible
[09-21, 19:20] <Googol> It's still got another set of 12 episodes starting from January.
[09-21, 19:14] <jerxou> what the fuck happened in the last ep of aldnoah?? it was constructed horribly, inconsistent and overall was just rushed the fuck up..
[09-21, 19:04] <Robert Franklin> I think every writer who's written a sue should drink bleach
[09-21, 18:58] <Xisca> What I think sao is great, but sure it's more talking in this season than the others but I don't think it's bad. I want to see more after watching the episodes.
[09-21, 18:36] <deepeshchugh> it is awesome!!!!
[09-21, 18:33] <nitekatt> sao is becoming like new naruto: everyone says that it sucks and shit and (s)he doesnt watch it, yet everyone happens to know so many details and reasons for this despisal one wouldnt really have without watching it
[09-21, 18:09] <Obakeinu> SAO II is turning out better than I originally expected... always thought PK'ers were psychos :p
[09-21, 17:45] <Tysonblast> lol why would you watch sao
[09-21, 17:44] <Inmei> hello
[09-21, 17:00] <Tennouji> W-where's my Sword Ass Online dosage? (pun intended)
[09-21, 16:46] <herkz> >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: Requests are not allowed.
[09-21, 16:29] <nitekatt> its here on nyaa. use "s2" in the search
[09-21, 15:14] <SneakiestNEG> I remember when they tried to install a web plug in. Ask something or whatever.
[09-21, 15:12] <SneakiestNEG> Utorrent tries so hard to go legit. Bittorrent is under pressure I guess.
[09-21, 15:00] <vivan> I hope that they will stay dead, otherwise it would be shit ending
[09-21, 14:44] <Obakeinu> The ending to Aldnoah was AWESOME! Now to await the winter season to see what really happens next...
[09-21, 14:06] <vybe> ah so many series ending...
[09-21, 14:03] <nitekatt> 1.8.2 does everything and is only a 250Kb program.
[09-21, 12:49] <Endymion> "uTorrent became shit not so long ago" it became shit after original developer sold it. and it was long ago.
[09-21, 11:58] <vybe> pls upload spice wolf vol 1 and 2 scanlated..
