Anime

Un Nyaa Nyaa

Nyaa Torrents is no more.  It's gone to the great big 404 in the sky.

I'm not sure who ran it or where it was hosted, but this may have been in response to a recent Dutch court ruling that fansubs are explictly copyright violation.

I have my AnimeLab subscription, but they have some major gaps in their lineup - Little Witch Academia, for example, which is the best show of 2017.  I'll have to see how well Crunchy streaming works here in Oz.

1 Well crap, Nyaa was my sole source of Anime. What shall I do now?

2 TokyoTosho is still up.  And Horriblesubs have their own site.


And of course there's CrunchyRoll if your internet connection is good enough for streaming.

3 I was just reminded that the Internet sees censorship as damage and routes around it. While the nyaa.se owner is AWOL, the admins have pulled together a complete backup at nyaa.pantsu.cat. (Which will work, although I might get that uptime server thing.) We shall see how long that lasts. I remember when EZTV was good, then killed, then resurrected as a site that only liked to spammy low quality versions put in with folders of junk.

Anyway, categorization is broken, but the search works, and they have LWA 17 up....

4 On the other hand, the neregate.com charts seem to be down.

5 There's still Bakabt and THORAnime.

6 Looks like THORAnime was hosted at nyaa.se and Bakabt has gone private. Here's a list of alternatives.

7 I think a lot of these were based in Europe, and the recent court ruling I mentioned leaves them open to lawsuits and possible criminal charges.

8 I see BakaBT has a problem specifically with DMCA robots.  A couple of times we've had services shut down at work by these buggers; they just look for keywords and squirt out complaints to your hosting provider.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
