Torrent sites have been around for more than a decade. Earlier, most of them would disappear without any prior notice. Copyright watchdogs moved instantly to bring down the websites. And since the volume of these sites wasn’t much, it was easier to keep track of them. However, in the past decade, the number of torrent trackers have grown considerably, and there’s no way anyone can bring them all down.
There are more than 1,000 websites related to this niche in the list of the most popular 100,000 websites on the internet. With Peer-to-peer file sharing on an all-time high, the torrent scene appears to be at its peak.
Off the top of your head, you could probably name more than 3-4 torrent sites that are revered around the world. One particular torrent tracking service that is perhaps one of the best anime-based torrent sites is ‘Anime Torrents’.
What is Anime Torrents?
Anime Torrents is one of the leading private torrent trackers that provides its audience with Movies, Anime TV Series, Original Video Animation, Manga, Hentai, and Light Novels. The community has over 36,000 invite-based members who are able to access over 17,000 torrents. The content available on this site can be downloaded in HQ quality with each title being available in DVDRip, BDRip, Blu-ray, and HD quality. This means that you’ll be able to watch most of the content in 720p and 1080p quality. Unlike GGBases, which fell short in terms of language capabilities, Anime Torrents provides users content with English subtitles.
Anime Torrents Engagement
Anime Torrents launched on 24th June 2012 and currently attracts more than 160,000 users a month. An average visit on the site lasts for over 6 minutes with a respectable bounce rate of 42.35%.

Overall, numerically it looks like a solid platform that has 36,000 permanent users in its community.
What should you expect from the Anime Torrents?
Forum & Engagement – Part of what makes a community legit is its following. You know you can trust a community that has 36,000 members as it’s not easy to become one. Why? Because Anime Torrents is an invite-only website. This means that you cannot become a member as per your wish. However, once you do, there’s plenty of amazing content that will keep you glued to the forum. Anime Torrents has a dedicated forum wherein, you have various options such as ‘Meet and Greet’, ‘AnimeZ Lounge’, ‘Avistaz Network Invites’, ‘and ‘Geek Lounges’.
Dedicated Subtitles – As I mentioned earlier, Anime Torrents offers content with English subtitles. However, once I dug deeper, I realized that it not only offers content in English but also in Arabic, Hungarian, Spanish, Italian, French, and German languages. You will find all about it when you access a title. You’ll find details including the Torrent Name, Description, Upload Date, Size, and Subtitles.
Bonus Points Exchange – A major benefit of being a part of an exclusive community is that it doesn’t follow the mainstream ways. Anime Torrents has its own programs and events for its members. An interesting one that I found was the ‘Bonus Points Exchange’ program. Here, you can exchange your seeder-bonus with fellow members of the community. Upload credit exchange limit is specified along with Invitation Exchanges and Transfer Bonus Points. If you want to be a part of this community, you will need an insider source willing to give up his/her credit to get you in.
Torrent Uploading – Torrent uploading is a novel cause in the world of torrenting. Thankfully, it’s not as hard as it may appear at first. You have a dedicated form wherein you have to fill out information such as ‘FileName’, ‘Covers’, ‘Torrent File’, ‘Screenshots’, ‘Category’, ‘Tags’, ‘Languages’, ‘YouTube URL’, and other important details.
Torrents Ranking – I know this may sound strange but on Anime Torrents, you get to access various types of Torrents that are classified as per their size. A file above 15 GB in size is considered as a Gold Torrent. A file between 8 GB to 15 GB in size is considered as a Silver Torrent. For your upload to be considered as a gold or silver torrent, you need to make it available for free on the platform. Apart from the torrent classification, you also get Torrent Multiplier benefits wherein, you get 2x to 10x returns based upon the file size.
Donation Packages – I’ve never seen a donation package on a torrent site as simplified as this one. There are five different options – 1 Month VIP for $10, 2 Month VIP for $20, 6 Month VIP for $50, 1 Year VIP for $100, and Lifetime VIP for $200. In each package, you get a certain upload credit, bonus point, and a new bonus point ranging between 400 and 30,000 respectively.
How to access Anime Torrents?
You can access Anime Torrents by searching for the term ‘Anime Torrents’ in your search engine. Alternatively, if you want to access the platform directly, you can use the following link: Anime Torrents. Remember, there are various extensions of the website and thus using the link is the simplest way of finding the website.
Before you access Anime Torrents, it’s important for you to know that protecting your IP and your device must be your top priority. Most of the time when you engage in illegal content downloading, your IP can be tracked by your ISP and the local authorities. In order to avoid any mishap, it’s important that you stream anonymously when you’re accessing such platforms. That’s the reason I recommend you use a VPN. Using a VPN will help protect your data and your identity not just from hackers but also from regulatory authorities.

I have mixed feelings when it comes to Anime Torrents’ design. It has contemporary elements but at the same time, it does have some outdated sections too. For instance, the logo looks dated. And the header section with gradients looks like some website that was designed a decade ago. At the same time, the body section has a flat design which gives you a modern vibe.
The header section of the website has seven main options – ‘Home’, ‘Torrents’, ‘IRC Chat’, ‘Forums’, ‘Register’, ‘Login’, and ‘RSS Feed’. It has a black and white gradient which gives it a gray background. Overall, it looks olde worlde, to be honest.
Inner pages look good. They follow the standard set by the hero sections on the homepage. By clicking on any thumbnail on the homepage, you’ll be able to access the inner pages. I like the design of the inner page along with the information on it.
With more than 17,000 titles, it’s fair to say that Anime Torrents does have an extensive content library. You’ll find movies, anime series, manga, animation, and even hentai on this website. Within a single session, I could find shows such as ‘One Piece’, ‘Naruto Shippuden’, ‘Bleach’, ‘Kimi no Na wa’, ‘Goblin Stager’, ‘Death Note’, ‘Kitsune no Koe’, ‘Thunderbolt Fantasy’, ‘Yuru Yuri 2’, and ‘Trinity 7’ to name a few.
The seed/leech ratio on this website is great and thus, the download is super smooth. If you have an internet connection of 16 Mbps or more, you’ll be able to download 1-1.5 GB files within 10 minutes. The overall browsing and navigation experience is smooth since there are no ads or redirection. After all, that’s what you get when you’re part of a donation-based website.
Suggestions I have for Anime Torrents
Honestly, I don’t have anything negative to say about this community. It’s super active and has amazing members, however, I would love it if the mods and devs emphasized on revamping the graphics on the website, especially the homepage.
Anime Torrents is a great private community for anime lovers. Right now, it just works on an invite-only basis. Thus, in order to be a part of this community, you’ll need to get in touch with someone who not only is a part of this community but also has active points for a recommendation.
