I haven't seen a new anime uploaded to Netflix instant streaming in a while. I think the latest one was Rosario + Vampire. Has Funimation stopped putting shows on there? I'd really consider dropping Netflix altogether if they didn't have some of the regular TV shows I want to watch.

I feel your pain. The selection on Netflix is pretty god awful, and you're right about Rosario + Vampire being the most recent one. It takes forever for anything new to be added.

Wasn't the latest one Seikon no Blacksmith? It was up for a limited time then went off and recently came back.

But yea, regardless, I've kinda run out of stuff to watch on it, that's why I'm streaming via PS3 browser... lmao.

I noticed that this thing called Crackle had some different anime on there (with limited commercials). They even had 12 Fate/Zero episodes. But I dunno. Netflix has been dropping the ball lately.

You can also find a lot of Funimation stuff on their Youtube channel. It's only 480p and there are start/end adverts, but you normally get a choice between Subbed and Dubbed.

Netflix hasn't been looking too strong lately in my book, if you've already seen a majority of what it has to offer so far.

I still use CR for a majority of my stuff.

Also you can find alot of Funi's shows on their website. They sometimes give you the sub or dub option it just depends on the show.

I have run into this problem as well. One of the main reasons i keep Netflix is due to their anime section, so it really needs to be updated a lot more frequently honestly. I know quite a few people who would subscribe to Netflix if it had a larger anime section. I've watched pretty much everything i wanted to on it. A lot of the older stuff i don't really care for IE Slayers, X, Monster(I think it's called?) Lupin, and a few other things. Wish they would add the second season of Spice and Wolf to Netflix, and i really Really REALLY wish they would add Shakugan No Shana

I know the anime selection isn't big but I had to laugh when I was browsing it and saw:
"More like Ouran High School Host Club:

Elfen Lied, High School of the Dead, Trigun"

Really, the primarily reason I got it was because of the massive anime DVD collection. When I find out they treat each volume as a separate disc (come on, I'm not going to watch4-6 episodes of a show, and then wait 1-3 days for the next episodes.) I just ultimately give up on renting. And all I've seen on streaming was Fruits basket, Elfen Lied, and Spice and Wolf (dropped Spice and wolf but meh). Sure, I would've watched OHSHC, but I had seen it prior anyway. So in the end I only got two shows out of it -_-. I would've watched FMA as well, but the dubs just killed me. So I'll just watch that someday from a torrent.

What the...?

Netflix is terrible! What's wrong with you people?! Haven't you heard of animefreak.tv or animeultima.com? Downloading is also an option. Netflix is for movies, and it doesn't even do that right. o.o'

I just used it when I was too lazy to download =_=. And it's higher quality than streaming, albeit primarily in english, but I can live with it for some shows. And also off topic I also watched Baka and test on Netflix.... very shallow show.

A lot of anime expired on April 1, I believe. Which really is a shame. That's what I hate most about Netflix, they never tell you when a show expires until it's like a week before. And I downloaded Soul Eater because Netflix said it was expiring, and I was 10 or so eps in, and I look on Netflix now and here it is, still on there. I don't even get it. I definitely wouldn't keep Netflix if I only wanted to watch anime though.

Netflix is kind of limited to what is currently licensed in North America, or Western Europe or what ever branch you fall under. There are also often agreements with the licensee as to how long they can stream it. Back before anime was so accessible online, I had the maximum subscription with them and with a service Called Anime Takeout. That solved the two day wait between discs. It did take Netflix a while to catch on to the concept of sending series discs in order. Had several fights with them about that. They have less "fresh" anime to offer these days because fewer distribution rights are being bought. The slowdown started in 2006.

After once having the max subscription, I now have streaming and a one-out DVD because I've pretty much seen every anime they offer that I am interested in.

They aren't "bad". It's just that when it comes to anime, they are subject to restrictions that pirate and marginally legal sites aren't.

Edit: When something "expires" in your streaming queue, that doesn't mean it is gone for good. For a time it will only be available via DVD but eventually make its way back to streaming availability. One reason this happens is that a new streaming agreement has to be negotiated with the holder of the license. Happens with movies and TV series too.

--!!!!!!Think again about Monster. One it's not that old and two, it is one of the best animated shows ever. It is pretty sophisticated and not all action and titties or soppy highschool/rom/com/fantasy.

No service is going to look strong to an individual if the service is mainly comprised of things the individual has already seen.

Monster, Gankutsuou, Trigun, both FMAs, Gurren Lagann, Baccano!, Ouran High School Host Club, FLCL, Death Note, Mushishi, Macross Plus, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Eden of the East, Elfen Lied, Blood+, Last Exile, Gunslinger Girl, Dead Leaves, Ga-Rei Zero, Spice and Wolf, Clannad + After Story, Seirei no Moribito, Fruits Basket...

That's a fucking trove of great stuff.

Are you kidding? The dub is amazing. Also, please buy the DVDs and support Funimation as well as the other companies so they can continue putting out new material. However, do NOT support 4kids. They are an exception. Most companies have uncut DVDs with Japanese and English.

It is not only illegal but the anime companies suffer because of those sites. How can you claim you love these shows and the voice actors when you watch the shows illegally and hurt the companies? They will not make money and as a result they can't put out new material.
