Sorry pirates, looks like the famous anime torrenting site, Nyaa, is down. It seems that the pirate site lost control over several of its domain names. It also seems that the site’s domain got the Server Hold status as well. Their and domains are also deactivated.

Many have blamed Responsible Registry for the site being taken down, with a legal authority backing it being taken down. However, according to the website, Torrent Freak, “several people, including site moderators and other people close to the site, said that NYAA’s owner decided to close the site voluntarily. In other words, this likely means the end.”

Whatever the real reason may be, nyaa is now down. Whether the website will be back or not is still in question too, however, there’s still other ways to watch anime, so don’t worry.
