    I would like to say, the process of validating the data is exasperating. Not only does hash checking such a massive amount of files expectedly take a long time, there's also the fact my hash lists weren't 100% updated, so I have to deal with files that once existed but were legitimately deleted before the failure, and those that were created within the same time period but never hashed. And anything that 1. wasn't in the list, 2. hasn't been recovered either, is now lost forever.

    Fortunately, I was able to automate a large part of this with some work. I will post notes once I'm done in case anyone else has to go through the same thing... hopefully never.

    I didn't watch any anime in long time, nothing after Attack on Titan S3, so I didn't check their site. But yesterday I decided to look for new AoT episodes and to my BIG surprise I see "goodbye" message! If nyaa goes down as well I'm fu*ked!
    Nyaa has already shut down once, and there are other independent iterations besides the .si one. With that said, I don't have any desire to see their resilience tested either.

    Said it before and will say it again, I think Tor onion services are the future here. No one can seize your domain or even know where your server is. A lot of trackers rely on Cloudflare, but Cloudflare isn't their friend.

    Damn, that's expensive. Here 2TB Seagate is 60€, and 4TB is 100€.

    I know, prices are so damn high here. I would blame high taxes and protectionism, but our previous president waived most import tariffs in an attempt to move towards a free market economy, and (here comes the miracle) nothing changed.

    For the more expensive items, it's actually cheaper to drive to Chile or fly to the USA, buy them there, then return home. Or at least it was before corona and travel restrictions.

    I'm a bit late to this party as this comment went over my head, but SubsPlease is the new HorribleSubs
    Anon is right that just checking AnimeTosho for any group usually works out fine tho, but I like having one group to follow. Another option is to go to the anidb page of the anime you're looking for. It lists the groups and how many people added them to their list. Groups with a higher add-rate usually have the better subs.

    Didn't know and will keep it in mind, thanks When HorribleSubs shut down, comment sections were like "what are we going to do, these guys were massive, who will step up now!?" but my thoughts were rather "anime fansubs require skill and passion, former HS members aren't going to quit forever, just join other groups or start a new one".

    Semi-relevant...

    Groups start and stop. It's just life. People grow up. I don't think ONE group of the ones I started watching first, years ago, is still subbing. Man, who remembers Shinsen-subs? Back then I felt like they were the biggest thing ever and they'd never go away. Boy was I wrong. Horriblesubs wasn't even a thing back then. They really did build up a glorious amount of high quality subs tho. Ironic how their name kept me away at first.

    I think it's mostly that a lot of younger either japanese people or others that are studying japanese in school are in these subbing groups, either out of love of spreading the culture or to practice. At one point you're suddenly 32 with kids and you don't have the time to keep that up.

    Shinsen-subs had their first anime subbed in 2003. That's a wopping 18 years ago. If these dudes were 20 at the time, they'd be 38 now. (Horrible started in 2009, which is still 12 years)

    Indeed, as a certain visual novel protagonist said, there are too many responsibilities in this world... but even in an hypothetical scenario where you've got none, I can think of additional factors.
    • Drama: e-fights with other groups or within your own over stuff that is usually stupid in hindsight. The longer you run for and the more people you've associated with, the higher the odds you've been involved in (or dragged into) that sort of thing.
    • Legal trouble: even if copyright enforcement of non-licensed anime outside Japan is rare, the risk is never zero and that may put people off from doing this long-term.
    • Burnout: you can love this stuff and dive into it head on at first, but after years, it can end up feeling like a chore, with you wanting to move on to other things.

    And as I said before, just because a group shuts down, it doesn't mean everyone who was in it will retire from the scene forever... just as I'm sure it's also possible to have plenty of turnover within a group without ever dissolving it.

    As for how many Japanese people are involved into fansubbing, that's a good question! I'd wager most won't want to get involved due to the aforementioned copyright issues, but there must be at least a few.

    Same here, and it also happened with Loe Quality Translations. Then I realized that if the groups themselves chose those names, they couldn't be anything other than humor
