It’s awesome news for anime lovers – AnimeByt.es will have it’s first ever open registration on the 1st of September, 2009. Up until now those who wanted to join this tracker had to go through an IRC interview or apply via recruitment threads on BitTorrent forums such as TPS. If you haven’t heard about it, AnimeByt.es (AB) is a private torrent tracker that specializes in anime, manga, Japanese music (J-music), games, live action series and even official soundtracks (OST). Running on What’cd’s Gazelle BitTorrent tracker script, AB is without a doubt one of the best looking Anime trackers currently around.

AnimeByt.es currently tracks over 2000 active torrents (there is a lot more content here than it meets to the eye – see below) . The site’s registered user base hovers around 900 at the time this post is written (this will soon go up with open signups btw). These statistics are excellent for a specialty tracker that’s only three months old and was closed to the public since launch.

As for the content – AB is a heaven for Anime lovers. There are hundreds of Anime TV series indexed along with TV specials, movies, OVAs, ONAs, manga series, artbooks, music collections and even hentai torrents. To view an overview of the content available on AB, check out the ‘Series’ tab in top toolbar. Note that some of the torrents available on this tracker are tagged ‘Exclusive!!’ – these are releases unique to AB and you won’t find them anywhere else.

Apart from the excellent content, AB has quite a few ‘value added’ features incorporated to the site. Collages, Projects, Requests, Bonus Points Store (though which you can get personal free leech and even double upload), advanced search, custom style sheets are just some of them.

As stated in the title of this article, AnimeBytes will have open registrations from the 1st of September, 2009. Signups are likely to remain open for about 1 week. All new members will get 3GB free upload credit and 2 invites upon signup. Check it out – a must have site if you are into Anime, manga or J-music.

Site Name: AnimeBytes (http://animebyt.es)

Signup URL:http://animebyt.es/register

Note: If the signups are closed, keep checking – site will definitely open on the 1st of September (that’s in a couple of hours in most time zones).

Special thanks to Mio, Takkun, Megatomte and rest of AB staff.

    Christoffer,
    Usually it should come within 5 mins. Check your spam folder. It went to the spam folder in my Gmail.

  11. Christoffer // 9/01/2009 11:16:00 PM  

    Lo and behold, it was sitting in my SPAM folder, thanks ^^

  12. zetsuboushda // 9/02/2009 03:51:00 AM  

    Yes, we have had some trouble with Gmail sending our mails to the spam folder. Hopefully, if enough people click 'not spam' the filter can be lifted -_-;
