    But them at horriblesubs said some new forces are working to make a new, better, overpowered replacement for nyaa.
    So don't despair!

    It's not like there aren't any other alternatives, or that new ones won't form in Nyaa's ashes, but the recent ruling in Amsterdam District Court that fan-subs are illegal is a very dangerous precedent. I've already heard of some groups shutting down because/in fear of it. Of course, this doesn't apply to RAWs, but only weebs watch RAWs, so I don't care about whether or not it affects them.

    Well, time to learn more languages to watch movies in OV directly RAWed.
    Japanese probably won't be that big of a problem, but some other languages would.

    Actually it was Nyaatorrent (typo in the OP).
    I guess you could say it was a big place that stored and scored anime torrents, mostly fansubs and raws.
    The score part was interesting I guess.
    It was a public torrent tracker for mostly very new stuff, the standard one used by the fansub community.

    A shame. Hopefully whoever takes up the task of a new anime torrent site is up to the challenge.

    RIP Nyaa.

    Personally, I just used a streaming site. I happen to know two of them, one being good for dubbed anime and movies, the other specializing in subtitled ones. Is there that much of a benefit to using a torrent? I kind of thought most people used streaming sites. I must be missing something.

    The streaming sites I've seen haven't offered much/any choices when it comes to fansub groups. Some are just plain awful, with tons of spelling/grammar/translation errors. It's nice being able to find your favorite groups and the work that they've done. It's also more difficult (in my experience, at least) to find 1080p. Even if the specific episode/season/series is labeled as "HD" it could be 720p or sometimes less. The effort difference between the two methods is minimal at best.

    Yes, video quality mostly. /s
    There are also a lot of not so popular things that were easier to find in nyaa.
    Either way I don't really use torrent.
    Regarding streaming, I use mostly Crunchyroll (legally), and there the video quality is great but many times things are not available because of regional lockout (Germany...), then I normally go and XDCC the horriblesubs rip of Crunchyroll release, feeling totally clean at heart because I am paying fucking Crunchyroll monthly anyway.

    But then I also sometimes go to one of those "alternative" streaming sites out of convenience if they have something I want to watch, and the video quality is shit in comparison, but well it works...

    Like when any torrent site goes down, there's always plenty of alternatives. Most fansub groups have their own sites, game rippers usually tag stuff and upload it elsewhere, and if you're looking for untouched video you can just suck it up and import the DVD/Blu-Ray.

    I'll admit I found a handful of obscure soundtracks there, but I could probably find them elsewhere if I really cared enough.
