Public trackers are BitTorrent trackers that allow anyone to access and download torrents without requiring user registration, unlike private trackers.
Nyaa is a public BitTorrent tracker for anime, manga, light novels, etc.
Torrents on Nyaa are sorted by category. These can be changed using the second dropdown menu on the search bar.
To search for releases in English, use the
- English-translated option under the various categories.
Below is a list of useful operators that can help narrow down your search when looking for torrents:
|Only return results that match exact word/phrase
"Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka??"
|Return results that match either word/phrase; or
"Is the Order a Rabbit?"|"Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka?"
|Exclude word/phrase from search
Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka? BD Hi10P -BLOOM -"Sing For You"
See their help section for more information.
Nyaa supports custom RSS feed creation. This is useful if you plan on automatically downloading releases that do not have existing RSS feeds, such as fansubs for airing shows.
- Search and go to the user's profile you want to create a feed for
- On the top bar, click on RSS. Copy this URL and add it to your torrent client
You should always make searches from the profile page, as global searches carry the risk of potentially downloading torrents from imposters using the group's name, which may contain malware or other undesirable content.
