Download all individual episodes of an anime from HorribleSubs easily

Project description

Often times I find that HorribleSubs does not upload a single torrent containing all episodes of an anime, or as they call them, batches.

This scraper will search all their shows given a search word (via command line or after prompt during program execution), and download all episodes of the desired show in the highest resolution available.

Demo video


  • re-uses previous list of shows scraped from the site that gets saved in a text file if not expired

  • asks user which show they wanted if there is more than one match found


  • Python 3.5+

  • xdg-open if using Unix

  • Software that can download content from a magnet link (e.g.: transmission, tixati, BitTorrent, etc.)


pip install -U horriblesubs-batch-downloader


  1. clone this repo

  2. cd horriblesubs_batch_downloader

  3. python install


Here’s some examples. There’d actually be prompts for the user to go through for each one to select the desired show.

hsbd "one piece"
hsbd jojo
hsbd naruto
hsbd --help

Note: it will save the shows in the current working directory ($PWD) and attempt to load cached info from the HS site so it’s better to cd to a directory like Downloads first.
