While you watch some new stuff, or some "old" that you already have, the old/hard to get things in those private sites might die, and you can't just watch/download all at once.
That was the good thing about BBT, archiving.

No, it's fucking abysmal. Are you looking for anime music or something?

Because that's not the place to go.

I don't always agree with BBT's choices for a series/resolution, but at least they occasionally saved you the work of having to download various releases just to compare them

It's always better to get the album that the anime music eventually gets released in, and JPS is fine for that in my experience.

>>101375292

Do they have a strong selection of say, japanese hardcore punk, underground metal, folk, ambient neo-classical, or piano works?

They don't have anime singles or soundtracks? Not even theme songs and the like?

Don't really care about pop.

Yes, but good luck sifting through it to find that without a specific artist/composer in mind.

No anime. At all.
>>
>>101375058
They don't always only allow one, but different encodes generally share a very similar script between them. Be it edited and better signed official translations or a respected group's sub but typeset slightly different.
In those cases the difference is fairly negligible

These threads are probably just AB trying to advertise. This is a hunch.

Not sure about those genres.

There are almost no anime singles, but there are some soundtracks.

There are plenty of OPs/EDs and the like, but on the artists' own album instead of the anime's.

They've always been afraid of FUNi and NISA (and CPM and ADV back in the day), but it's already been a while since they moved their serves outside the US and well out of the reach of those companies, shit, they even keep some low-profile series that were picked up by those in the site.
Whatever it is the reason that they haven't decided to give them the middle finger escapes me.

And yet, you can find stuff licensed by the people BBT draw away from, FUNi and NISA, in AB, Nyaa, and plenty of other torrent and DDL sites.

I don't get how people are hung up on this. At worst somebody reads your application and thinks your a pleb. Chances are they have shit taste.

You've never posted your favorite shows in a 3x3 thread, or just your opinions about any show, ever?
This isn't credit card information, you weirdo, just some simple ass surface level questions.

I think I put Nichibros, Nichijou, and Genshiken on my application. Just don't put entry level shows on it and you're fine.

Why do you think entry level shows wouldn't be fine? They have torrents for naruto, bleach and everything.

Great, I was almost done with the new Berserk torrent on BakaBT [the one with all the DH scans] and now the tracker's gone.
Is there any way to finish this? Like, an alternative tracker or something?
The one on AB looks different [although it's bigger in size].
What do?

>>101387666
Wait.

>>101387666
Only if you find the exact same torrent elsewhere.

You absolute fucking moron. Have fun, then. If you can't fill out an application then I don't think you should get an invite either.

Do they want 1:1?

I don't.

I have 1+ TB of upload and about 150 GB of DL, but I rarely download anything now that I can't farm yen anymore.

https://animebytes.tv/application.php

Go here. Sign up with your normal e-mail adress or a bullshit one you just created, doesn't matter. Sign up with your real name or a fake one, it's up to you. Just fill out the application, they accept pretty much everyone.

Ratio exists on AB, and normally you'd want 1:1, but this is not the case here. Basically what matters is the time you're seeding - as long as you seed long enough(which should be a day or two maybe) you don't have to worry about ratio. On that note, all 1080p content on the site is freeleech, so you can download fucktons without it affecting your ratio and you don't have to worry about anything. For instance I have actually downloaded 1.33TB since I first joined, but since most of it was freeleech, it says on the site that I've only downloaded as much as 83GB. I'm not even joking. While I've uploaded 623GB.

So as long as you seed long enough on stuff, it's nothing to worry about, and since almost everything is freeleech you barely have to worry about that either, even if you still should seed long enough on freeleech stuff too since it'll be a hit and run otherwise.

Exactly. Nobody actually has to be leeching from you, as long as the torrent is active, it's fine. It's what I do.
>>
>>101388470
You're just downloading torrents. Just as long as you seed, I don't see why they would care if those are your favorites.
