Shana Project provides a few features to help you automate your anime downloads. Using these features you can follow your favourite shows, you can then use your private RSS feed to setup your bittorrent client to automatically download your anime.
First read our Follows Help to learn how to create some follows. You can choose your favourite subber for each show, as well as select a preferred (or specific) quality. Once you've set up a few follows, the releases are highlighted for you, or you can find them all on your personal follows page. The best way to follow a show, is to click the "+" button next to a release you like, and click the yellow "follow" that appears.
Once you've created some follows, check out our instructions for how to get your torrent client to automatically download those files. The instructions should be similar for other clients (anything that can read an RSS feed!).
With barely any setup, you can have all your favourite anime downloaded and ready to go.
