D-addicts tracker is dead! Long live d-addicts!


I come back home, clicked on my d-addicts link to the tracker and found it not working. Don't tell me d-addicts is down again? Then I tried the main page and it worked. At the active posts section is a post titled 'Closing down the torrent section'. I'm already suffering from post Japan trip depression and to compound this is the d-addicts news. Can my day not get any worse? Maybe this is all a nightmare and I'm actually sleeping in a ditch somewhere in Shin Koiwa.

Besides' Furransu's site which only has mainstream shows which are subbed, the only other options left are the direct download sites and asiantorrents. It was nice having bt links all in one site, especially for old shows.

A big thank you to Ruroshin and whoever else is also responsible for maintaining the tracker for so many years so fans like me can enjoy great and horrible jdoramas from Japan. Thank you for spending so much of your time and money just to bring the joy of jdoramas to others.

Is Nyaa torrents only mainstream stuff as well?

Waah!! I didn't want to say anything in one of your previous posts because you were enjoying your hard-earned trip to Japan...but it's true:(((
You are sooo right about DA being the only site to consistently offer non-mainstream and older doramas. You can find scraps of Wowow here and there, and forget about anything over two or three years old. That's a great shame, because I just watched Shomuni from 1998, and it was phenomenal. I wanted to watch a dorama featuring an "otokomae no onna" (thanks to S3 ep3 of Shinya Shokudo, and, boy, was I ever rewarded.
I would highly recommend BTDIGG or BITSNOOP to dig up older doramas.

Xaxa, my hero, has saved 35000 torrent links here:

I will be seeding my all-time fave doramas indefinitely. Requests are welcome, but my UL speed is sloooow.

Hamsapsukebe is more vital than ever. Don't you go anywhere, Mike-san.

nyaa is mostly anime manga stuff.
meanwhile their sukebi site is mostly for hentai and jporn.

their site is ok. also some uploaders from d addcits have already started uploading their stuff there. its under live action.
alredy been getting massan and japanoliges from there

ya its a shame that d addicts is going down. its the place to go for jdramas. thankfully and i hope people keep on uploading their subs in d addicts. its a shame jdramas arent as popular as it used to.

I can't say I'm enamoured with Nyaa being the torrent repositoty of choice for J-doramas. D-addicts is clean, orderly, organized and, yes, adult (in the non-hentai sense of the word). I feel at ease visiting frequently.
Nyaa is like barging into a 12-year-old's very messy bedroom. I just wanted to get out of there ASAP.
Wasn't nyaa.eu the subject of a massive takedown not that long ago? Not exactly a rock of stability, by the looks of it.

Some of the programmers/mods/admins from D-Addicts are working on a new site, which is to open up very shortly. Check here for further details!

I found 848x480 versions of Shinya Shokudou at Nyaa.

Thanks for the d-addicts backup link Rootabega!

Hope d-addicts V2 is a success!

D-A's torrents section was primitive and cobbled together, nowhere near as functional and organized as Nyaa.

Yes, Nyaa was taken down for an extended period of time not long ago by a DDoS attack, but they apparently implemented Cloudflare and there's been no downtime since. Downtime is also preferable to going offline permanently.

Ladies and gentleman, here we have a beautiful example of "if I tell a whopper big enough, will someone actually fall for it?".

Who went offline permanently? D-A is still there.

Educate yourself, dude:
