For First Timers
"How to download anime", and similar questions, answered here

These are questions that don't belong in the other sections.

Downloading

How do I download?

Ask the Oracle.

In case the Oracle is not in, there are generally 4 sources: from IRC, Bittorrent trackers, filehosts, and eMule.

  • To download using IRC, you need an IRC client. A quick guide to downloading using IRC can be found here and here.
  • To download from filehosts or direct-download sites, you first have to find one (this is where you're on your own).

Where do I download from?

Ask the Oracle.

In case the Oracle is not in, there are typically 4 sources one may turn to:

  • Public trackers (i.e. TT)
  • Private trackers (which require registration) and semi-private trackers (such as Boxtorrents)
  • Distro IRC bots, which you can usually find in the fansub group's IRC channel (if you don't know where, you can ask AniDB)
  • Direct-download websites (I'm afraid you will have to find your own; people generally do not reveal their direct-download sources)
  • (You're on your own for eMule, unless someone updates/edits this part since I don't know jack about it)
