This guide will use qBittorrent and the SubsPlease RSS feed as an example. The process should be similar for other clients and feeds.
- In qBittorrent, enable
RSS Readerfrom the
Viewmenu on the toolbar. A new
RSStab will appear next to
- Navigate to
Enable fetching RSS feedsand
Enable auto downloading of RSS torrents.
Feeds refresh intervalto 15 minutes.
Adding the RSS feed
- Choose the resolution that you want to download and copy the corresponding link from https://subsplease.org/rss-feeds/. For example -
- Go to the
RSStab in qBittorrent and click
- Paste the link you copied and click OK.
Do not paste this link in a browser because it will do nothing.
Setting up download rules
To set up the seasonal anime that you want to download, follow the steps below:
At the top-right of the RSS tab, click on
Download Rules, press the file icon (next to the trash can icon). Pick a name for your filter (anything works).
Change the textbox
Must Contain:to the title of the anime you need to download. Use the Japanese title of the show, as SubsPlease only offers the anime in their original title. For example,
Kimetsu no Yaiba.
In the textbox
Must Not Contain:, write
batchto avoid downloading the batch when the season ends.
If your filter works, you'll see the entries under
Matching RSS Articles.
Save to a Different Directoryand choose the download directory for the episodes.
Apply Rule to Feeds.
The client can be left running in the background. The anime episode will be automatically downloaded whenever it is released.
When you first add an anime to the list, the previous episodes may start downloading automatically. This only happens once, but you can manually stop the download process for any unwanted episodes.
Erai-raws is an alternative for SubsPlease. They are sometimes inconsistent and late but they fix certain issues with subtitles that are left unfixed in subsplease. Exclude "v0" releases with the "Must not contain:" filter to avoid duplicated downloads.
If you want something smaller try searching Nyaa for mini encoders like Judas or ASW. Clicking the RSS button on these pages gives you the required link for a particular uploader, doing the same on the homepage gives you an RSS feed of everything on nyaa.
