    OuglyBut looks like every other anime ddl site whereas AFF is special. I guess it’s easier to see what’s new (although I think you could achieve a similar effect by putting a bit more detail in the “Latest Fixed Episodes” here). The screenshots seems kinda dangerous – I mean, what if you end up spoiling something?

      I’ll request a spoiler button for the screenshots, good point.

    Will posting continue as usual over here, or does this site really RIP like what the other commenters have said?

      There are already files being added to the bot that aren’t being added here, like the HorribleSubs versions of Yahari. This site still only has the link to Commie’s version, which is only one step above having no version at all.

      From a user perspective, it is a shame, because the bot is less convenient. The bot is probably a lot more convenient from an admin side, and if that is what is required to keep posting episodes, that’s all there is to the issue. A bit of user inconvenience is better than nothing at all.

        animefansftw will still be our main site, otakubot is just a ddl site that offer downnload links for our uploaders and the users who cant wait to get the latest anime here. otakubot tries to post the latest releses as quickly as possible after subgroups release them on nyaa. (normally, in 20 minutes)

      No, this site will continue to exist as an up-to-date anime torrent and download site. If you want your latest shows, we’ll have ’em. Just think of OtakuBot as a DDL batch site alternative to BakaBT minus the need for seeds. Want get your hands on some old show from the earlier 2000s that no one’s seeding anymore on Nyaa? OtakuBot will be your go-to option for exactly that. Think of

      Nothing’s changing. AFF will continue to be around for years to come.

        That is good to know. Thanks for the initiative guys, and thanks for the explanation here, chris9000. You make things clear.
        There ARE indeed some really good shows (and overlooked at that) from the early 2000s that are pretty hard to find available anymore and I hope that this helps to resolve that issue.

    All great all fine! But wont be using it cause of simple reason – missing Torrent links! and those DL sites are serious pain in the ass of 1dl per time or speed below toilet!

      OtakuBot is more of an index site while this site will sort it out
      Torrent links will come to OtakuBot

    Will the naming be changed to what it was before?
    HorribleSubs_Kekkai_Sensen_09_720p.mkv (now)
    [HorribleSubs] Kekkai Sensen – 09 [720p].mkv (before)

      That’s not something we can do

      Some upload sites allow “[” and “]” others don’t

      We don’t modify the name

        But until now you had it with β€œ[” and “]” on otakushare. They suddenly changed their filename rules?

          otakubot changes filename automatically. in order to avoid some errors on linux server I set it to replace “[]” and space with “_”

    Why not just add thumbnails + pretty stuff to otakubot and delete this site. All this redirecting around isn’t very userfriendly

    Tell Degenftw to grow up & unban me. You guys pick kids for mods or what? I wanted to play hearthstone with the other guys, but I can’t. Tell medakaftw to talk this man child too.

    Will all the download links on this site (referring to the older releases), be transferred onto Otakubot?
    Or is that too much of a hassle?

    • Ace3DF

      OtakuBot links will be transferred to here.
      This is the workflow:
      Anime is released > OtakuBot downloads it > Uploads it > Auto posts to OtakuBot > AceBot takes the links from OtakuBot > Cleans them up, sorts them out and makes sure they’re under the right post category/title > Posts!
