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!
[11-28, 02:43] <Rin2K> yup.
[11-28, 02:26] <vivan> CentralAnime is those guys that use eyecancerish yellow fonts in 2014?
[11-28, 02:18] <xell17> It's not so tough. You just need to know how to pronounce the "r" the German way and that the "ch" is pronounced like the h in "hue". Other than that it's easy.
[11-28, 02:17] <Rin2K> r u even?
[11-28, 02:14] <Artemix> Kircheis.
[11-28, 02:07] <SneakiestNEG> Ah voice actors. Good luck pronouncing "Kircheis" if you don't speak German!
[11-28, 02:03] <SneakiestNEG> Is CentralAnime still alive? They are the galactic heroes of fansubbing ;)
[11-28, 01:40] <Artemix> "She and her cat". Lol.
[11-28, 00:56] <SenketsuSubs> "Yukina Himeragi" Nice name... HAHAHAHA :-D I loved Strike the Blood!!! ;-)
[11-28, 00:54] <princenoctis> does anyone have DIAURA album - Triangle..can anyone upload this pleaseee?
[11-28, 00:37] <xell17> Here you go, Artemix:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Anime_with_original_screenplays
[11-28, 00:33] <Artemix> I was wondering, is there any anime that didn't originate in manga/games?, you know, 100% original fresh anime.
[11-27, 22:17] <[TRVE]> Spot-on, xell17.
[11-27, 21:46] <OneCrazyRussian> herkz is my only tsundere, b-b-baka!
[11-27, 21:43] <Artemix> TRVE is like the ultimate tsundere.
[11-27, 21:40] <OneCrazyRussian> >shit eaters arguing over which turd tastes the best >you just hold your nose and it's OK
[11-27, 21:18] <frostyon420> happy thanksgiving herkz. we love u anyway lol
[11-27, 21:13] <xell17> Everything is shit and we're all shit eaters arguing over which turd tastes the best. Am I right, TRVE?
[11-27, 20:24] <[TRVE]> So is "good" and "anime".
[11-27, 19:46] <Stinky Cheez> "Good" and"MMORPG" iun the same sentence is an oxymoron.
[11-27, 19:27] <Artemix> I only watched Sailor Moon dubbed here in my country when it was first released, no idea what was her voice back then. Same with DBZ.
[11-27, 19:19] <inukamitsukai> only Ragnarok online - only hardcore!
[11-27, 19:01] <Yukina Himeragi> Any good mmorpg game to try ?
[11-27, 17:53] <Rin2K> gib moni pl0x
[11-27, 17:44] <shaddrag> Wat
[11-27, 17:44] <NoobSubs> Saves time and moneys.
[11-27, 17:43] <NoobSubs> The concept of having voice actors is stupid. Anime should be voiceless. We have subs anyways.
[11-27, 16:49] <sarachikorita> In what language? The current VA in Japanese is the same VA she had in 1992 (when she was relatively new as a VA).
[11-27, 16:47] <Artemix> Why did they have to cast such awful voice actor for Sailor Moon... damn, it's almost worse then Goku's voice.
[11-27, 13:39] <KKIM> someboy knows ohys-raws website? i cannot find page at raws.ohys.net/tv/ :-(
[11-27, 12:58] <Squiggy> I'll finish STrick yes

[11-27, 11:14] <qashairy> Is there any fansubs that would like to finish Sakura Trick BD's?
[11-27, 08:52] <Res> Any mods on right now, can u delete this comment. They're spoiling it
[11-27, 07:26] <sarachikorita> Ah, the remake of the first 1/4 of Detective Conan 219. =P
[11-27, 06:45] <MCR75> Don't know if this counts cause it was only one episode, but Magic Kaito 1412 had a giant clock.
[11-27, 06:32] <anikaxe> -_-
[11-27, 02:29] <Aomidori> Artemix, D-Grey man has a giant grandfather clock character, it was fuckin' weird.
[11-27, 02:29] <Aomidori> artemix: http://dgrayman.wikia.com/wiki/Miranda_Lotto

[11-26, 23:53] <dilworks> plz share the drugs, I wanna some
[11-26, 23:53] <dilworks> > ME!ME!ME
[11-26, 23:37] <xell17> I agree wholeheartedly.
[11-26, 23:35] <shaddrag> An anime without a giant clock is an anime not worth watching.
[11-26, 23:04] <xell17> I like giant clocks all over the screen.
[11-26, 23:03] <Rin2K> thanks for BSB
[11-26, 22:30] <shaddrag> Hey guys, I heard you like wub wub #625902
