Watching anime the unix way

It's that day of the week when a new episode of your favourite anime show comes out, but maybe your internet is slow or tbh, you just want to up your anime watching game. Well then this is the article for you.

My workflow

  1. Find anime to watch
  2. Find good torrent release of said anime on Nyaa
  3. Download the torrent using Transmission
  4. Transfer file to device using FileZilla (Only needed for people who use seperate devices for torrenting and watching)
  5. Watch it using mpv




I've created adl to automate the process of downloading new episodes each week by grabbing torrent files from Nyaa and adding them to Transmission's watch directory.
