Nyaa.se is down, rumored to be because the owner was afraid of new EU laws making pirating more dangerous, so it's unlikely it's coming back up again.

Use mirrors like:

https://nyaa.pantsu.cat/
and
https://sukeibei.pantsu.cat/

to download the things you want before it's too late, the magnets still work but without an indexing site it's on borrowed time.

If you aren't aware already, use the trackers listed on coppersurfer.tk

I don't even know how to do that. You'd think that a man without friends at least could be allowed to download some anime and watch it. But no, you need friends, a community and so on even to do that. I guess the demiurge will always take away everything you have even if you don't have much.

What content? Be more specific.

 No.22874

>>22872
Not him but you generate a currency you can exchange for ratio by simply having the file set to seed regardless of if anyone is actually leeching it or how much bandwidth you contribute, it's really hard to fuck it up unless you just delete the torrents. Not to mention 1080p bluray releases and airing episodes are permanently freelech, and on top of that there are sitewide freeleches pretty often so a lot of stuff you leech doesn't even hit the ratio that's so easy to build. Guessing this is what he meant, but obviously content can also mean contributing some actual files, I've put up a few CD's.


And forum/social participation etc is not required at all. Only time I posted was with an upload question and even that was after using the site for like 3 years.

I can't upload anything because of shitty internet and I obviously I don't have access to anything that isn't in the internet already
I can't translate anything because I'm not intelligent or have enough willpower to put years to learn another language and then spend a whole fuckload of time to translate and then upload it
I don't have any friends to pull me through without much effort, which I'm sure is what most of the people there are about
I don't have even enough bandwidth to download 1080p anime, so I would have to download 720p anime which wouldn't be freeleech

What is of me, a friendless person, without anything to contribute, with only the hope that he can upload as much as he downloads because there are days he won't watch anime because he's too depressed?

Despite watching anime for the longest time I feel a bit lost without Nyaa when it comes to going for older stuff, and Sukebei is dead too so getting VN's will be harder.

Not exactly goldmine and I don't primarily use them for manga specifically, but it's decent enough, here's the results for a search of pre 2000 manga only. Glancing through it a noteable amount of the older ones don't have raws up though if that matters to you.
>>22876
>>22897
Even if you can only DL the non-freelech ones as long as you leave them in your torrent client you will have no problems with ratio, the only thing they really penalize is hit and runs. And nobody said you have to actually upload torrents if you are just trying to use the site, I just happened to buy some CD's for myself and realized they weren't up so I uploaded them, it's not like I bought them just for that purpose and I barely got any ratio reward compared to what I get from just having stuff in my client anyway, you don't need to do it.

I don't know what to tell you, the only point I'm trying to make is that you shouldn't give up on trying to get in because you think you won't meet the requirements to participate; getting in is going to be the only difficult part. I'd give you an invite if I had any but it is possible to get in via application which is what I did, but there's no guarantee they will be open any time soon. You are probably going to have to wait for the inevitable replacement public tracker and deal with torrenting from HS directly for a while, and jump on applications if they open later so you have a backup if this situation repeats itself later with the next big public tracker. Private trackers aren't exempt from going down either fyi, just look at what.cd

It mostly depends on the country you live in in and not on you if you live in the EU or not. Some countries like Germany actively search for people who pirate and give them fines of thousands of euros, the UK is now even giving prison sentences for it.
My country's government doesn't really care about people torrenting as at least half of the population does it so they wouldn't be able to combat it anyway.

Thanks for the reply wizzie. Yeah I was asking about raws specifically actually, forgot to mention it. Well I guess I'm not losing much of anything by now having an acc in there then.

Aren't you going to get leave the EU because of Brexit though? Or was that Scotland?
I think that if you've never read or heard anything about people being arrested for pirating in your country that you don't have anything to be worried about. If you're still scared of getting into trouble with the law you might want to use a VPN. Still though, even in countries with anti-piracy laws there aren't that many cases of people getting arrested for downloading copyrighted content.

From what I remember (this was like 5 years ago now) it just asked you prove you know what seeding is and that you actually have an interest in the stuff on the site. But yeah it is a bit silly, unfortunately it's the only way outside of invites.

Northern Ireland is still part of Britain the other 3 quarters of the country are considered an independant republic although it is part of the EU. Brexit means the north will either leave the EU with Britain or join the republic presumably the former. There will presumably be riots whatever happens since the Catholics want to join the republic and the Protestants want to stay loyal to Britain. The north is a shithole that was dependant on now defunct industries like shipbuilding so while I feel we have a right to the land I don't want it.

One of the very few good things about living in a latin american 3rd world country is that no one cares if you pirate things because most people pirate everything anyway so it wouldn't be possible to arrest/fine 85% of the the ppopulation with internet access,when I mentioned to my university classmates that I actually bought an office 365 suscription they said I was weird because apparently no one there ever buys office,not students,teachers or staff.

In the US if your company runs pirate software you could probably get into big trouble when the audit comes in…here no one cares.

goddammit I hate this so much. They are taking everything from us. Piratebay, Kickass, now even nyaa. It was the only anime tracker where you would be able to find everything and even have seeders. Or at least for me it was like this, never any problems with speed.

I know that Avistaz.to has an anime filial site but I never used it as nyaa had everything I needed.

 No.22926

This doesn't bother me too much since I purposefully made it so I wasn't reliant on Nyaa. It's a shame it's gone, but you should have always had in the back of your mind that it wouldn't last forever, and that you shouldn't grow dependent on it.

It's rough because I got too complacent with it all being in one place and organised like that for so long. It's not like grabbing raws from Share is going to kill me, and subs can be lifted from blogs, but this still feels like a major loss for some reason.

I'm guessing we're going to see a shift in magnets being shared on IRC or something soon if they do start going after torrent hosts. Unless a SA country takes a firm pirate party stance, I don't see them allowing a major hub to form since it could mean sanctions.

Pirating is actually a moral imperative for any non-japanese who enjoys anime. Even if the money you gave to such wretched places like crunchyroll did in fact reach the authors, that would actually be all the more reason not to do it. Just imagine if the japanese started to cater to western audiences because their money became important. I really hope such thing never becomes reality, and my small contribution towards the prevention of such far fetched reality is me pirating anime.

This. The only way for a westerner to pay for anime properly is by online-ordering blurays directly from Japan, or maybe from China to cut delivery costs.

The storm has passed it seems. For now at least.
Pantsu also apparently allows uploads by releasers that were previously banned by the cartel. Like Doki for example.

What's this "cartel" thing? An actual drug cartel? Care to explain?

Yeah.I'm probably a newfag.

 No.23225

>>23224
Originally, the subgroup Commie began to be referred to as the meme cartel because they liked to fill their fansubs with memes instead of actually doing proper translations. The joke evolved to the point where the various fansub groups were now being referred to as cartels which became exponentially more hilarious with Nyaa's death since some important people in the subbing community are trying to apprioriate themselves the "market" by hosting their own Nyaa replacement (turf wars). As I haven't been an active /a/ user in quite a while now, some of the details might be a bit loose but that's my general interpretation.

Basically a group of fansubbers that often act as if they are bosses of pirating and pushing anime in the west. Or at least are perceived that way by animefag community.

Here's some copypasta for you:

>cartel

A circlejerk group of fansubbers involved with various subgroups and related services. They have some strong ideas about how things should be done and who should be in charge and regularly weasel their way into relevant groups to push their ideas, or attempt to exclude those that don't. They go out of their way to push non-cartel sub groups out of the picture, and used nyaa as a way to blacklist competition and promote their own work.
Basically, a group of egotists that try to bully competition out of the scene so they can pretend their mediocre work is 'the best available' because it's the only thing available. When CR went legit, they hired up most of the talented members of the fansub scene (hence the death of fansubs). The cartel is made up mostly of the people who were so bad at what they do, CR wouldn't hire them.
>Daiz
Cartel member and notorious shill. He has a script that notifies him whenever he's mentioned on /a/ so he can jump to the defense of whatever autistic crusade he's currently on, hence why mentioning him constantly became a meme. He was involved with pushing 10bit encoding, which was controversial at the time due to compatibility issues and being unfriendly to low-performance pcs, and is affiliated with fakku.

Fuck your morals. If you're posting here then I want you on AB with me. I'm an idiot who had to turn in three or four applications before I got in. Hawk the status of applications, get your answers saved in a document, and pounce when they open up. Be prepared to talk a little about your favourite anime, anime you've watched recently. What really matters is your basic knowledge of torrenting terms. Study up on the subject. The knowledge requirements are not extensive. But be very familiar with what seeding, leeching, and ratio mean. Know your clients. Qbittorrent is the standard now that Utorrent 2.2.1 is kill.

What's the fucking point of using a private tracker if unless you have a fast as fuck internet you will need a seedbox to keep a good ratio?

Isn't piracy supposed to be FREE? If you're going to pay or sacrifice your internet connection to download shit you may as well buy the original thing.

Also people says that they like private trackers because of exclusive content,but seriously,how obscure or "exclusive" it has to be to be worth it? If it exists on the internet most likely you can access it for free knowing how to search for it.

So yeah,tell me a good reason why using a private tracker is a good idea.

 No.26823

Private trackers are really wonderful if you're one of those extremely in-depth collectors who need the exact copy of a special deluxe edition of a music album from 1972 released in north korea. Otherwise they're worthless.

 No.26824

>>26822
I'm >>26810 and I'm power user on two trackers, jps and AB. For AB you're essentially right, there's been literally 3 things on there I haven't been able to find anywhere else and they were early 2000s untranslated VNs. I've barely used my account and just did the bare minimum to get to power user so I don't have to remember to log in. For the average weeb there is zero reason to bother getting an account there. I imagine this is the same for western media as well.

Jpopsuki though is completely different, there's thousands of albums that have never been uploaded anywhere else and even more flac rips that only see mp3 on the open web. So I have two completely different experiences on private trackers.

 No.26828

>>26823
Extremely in depth serious collectors usually buy the original thing no matter how difficult or expensive,private trackers just allow a "premium top-tier piracy experience" but again,piracy should be free,and renting a seedbox monthly or using your connection to seed almost all the time is far from free

>>26824
Are you sure that those obscure untranslated VN's are not available anywhere else,have you tried japanese forums and perfect dark?

After all,who stops someone from just downloading shit from a private tracker,and then when it's yours sharing it with the rest of the world with no strings attached?

 No.26830

>>26822
Not sure about other trackers but I've been using AB for years and its ridiculously easy to maintain a good ratio. Just seed for a few days and you're fine.
It's nice having access to pretty much all anime in high quality and not worry about searching all over for an alternative source.

 No.26831

>>26828
You really don't need a great ratio. Taken verbatim from the rules on AB
>Your ratio is the amount you've uploaded divided by the amount you've downloaded.
>Our ratio rules are not overly strict or complicated. If your ratio falls below 0.2 your download privileges will be revoked, although you will still be able to upload. Remember that 0.2 is the absolute minimum, and we expect members to retain a higher ratio. Also of note is that all of the user classes above Aka-chan require keeping a higher ratio.

Anything 1080p is automatically freeleech, Seeding even without upload gives you bonus points, etc. you'd have to be retarded to get banned for ratio. I'd have to torrent 14TB to hit that point and all my upload mostly came from the bonus point system which the more you torrent the easier it is to get.

shit, even as a collector it's always nice having digital copies to easily watch. 5 bucks on virtually all private trackers to not get inactive banned is worth it since it pays for itself.

 No.26832

For me AB is just nice for convinience and the ability to look at a history of my leeches etc since it helps keep things organized, and made rebuilding my archive of stuff a lot easier when one of my HDD died. Definitely not necessary to pirate anime or worth obsessing about getting access though.

 No.26835

Yeah I try PD as a last resort, I'm sure they would have been on share or pd in the past but both are sort of dead. Granted they might've been on clubbox so you have a point, but the barrier of entry for how to use that site is so large that is may as well be private. My point about jpopsuki stands though
