Anime fans around the world were left in a shock when their favorite anime download torrent website, NYAA returned an error message after the site has closed down some of its domains.
NYAA Is Down
The popular anime torrent site NYAA is known as one of the top sources for downloading anime episodes for free (albeit being unofficial and technically illegal in some countries) and has an audience of millions of regular users. However, the site which was operated for years without any significant trouble has lost control over several of its domain names (like nyaa.se, nyaa.eu and nyaa.org), which lead to shutting down of the website. As a result, the site has suddenly become unreachable. The domain status suggests that the responsible registries intervened, but it could also be that the owner is responsible for the drastic action.
The whois of NYAA.se domain shows a “serverHold” status which means that the Registrar has suspended the anime torrent websites domain. NYAA.eu and NYAA.org show a similar status. Usually, the serverHold status means that the domain has been suspended by the authorities for serious copyright violations.
However, the anime lovers around the world were left disappointed after the takedown of NYAA. Hence, to help cope with the loss, here we have provided some top 3 alternatives for NYAA Torrents so as to download their favorite anime content
Top 3 Alternatives to NYAA for Anime Torrent Downloads:

#2 Anime Sharing
Anime-Sharing is the number two alternative anime download website which also gets around a million visitors daily.

#3 Anime Bytes
Anime Bytes is another alternative to NYAA. This anime content website is not as popular as NYAA and others because it is necessary to get a registration from this website. According to sources, the Anime Bytes admin has stopped accepting new registrations as of now but they do open up the registrations from time to time.
Alternatively, anime fans can wait for the DVD releases of their favorite series. These DVDs promise perfect quality but are usually released extremely late after the series is over. Lastly, the DVDs don’t always have subtitles or dubbing which could be difficult for fans who don’t speak the language.
