Nyaa is down
Nyaa’s website is down since May 1, 2017. The whois records of Nyaa.se, Nyaa.eu and other Nyaa domains state the domains are deactivated. The anime torrent site shut down without an official statement about what happend to the site and it’s domain names. Later the site’s staff confirmed via IRC that the owner took it down voluntarily. Torrent users who can’t access the anime site discuss if Nyaa will return any time soon. Meanwhile many Nyaa se users are looking for Nyaa alternatives and join anime torrent sites like BakaBT, HorribleSubs and Tokyo Toshokan. HorribleSubs recommends to use magnet links for all Nyaa torrents.
The domains Nyaa.se and Nyaa.eu don’t have name servers set and do not point to a website at the moment.

An announcement of NyaaTorrents mods reads:
On May 1, 2017, NyaaTorrents officially ceased operations.
At time of this writing, nothing remains of the site. These are actions taken by the owner of the site and not a result of some form of internal subversion or engagement by government or legal entities.
The exact reasons for shutdown remain a mystery to all but the anonymous owner, but remaining former NT associates are led to believe that based on the circumstances surrounding closure, it was in response to recent court rulings that had the potential to affect site operations in the future. Rather than face this possibility, and any repercussions it would have on all parties involved, the owner decided to bring everything to a complete end. Based on operating principles, nothing will remain of the original site and all content, to include back-end, front-end, and all databases, has likely been purged.
There are no plans to continue any activity under the NyaaTorrents banner.
Any projects that occur from here on out are not associated with the original site.
The above serves as an official statement by what remains of the site.
Further questions can be directed via IRC to those remaining in #NyaaTorrents on irc.rizon.net.
