Using NetflixFollow

Worst. Title. Ever!

I signed up for Netflix yesterday and have been using the PS3 to do most of my watching. I figured I'd see what they had in terms of avialable Anime. But I can't find the category in the PS3 menus. Online, you can browse anime, yet on the PS3, it's not a category, and you have to search the titles?

Or am I missing something.

I'm not sure, but I think the categories you see when on the PS3 are related to the stuff you've watched and rated(at least, I think that's how it used to be, may be different now). I usually tend to just watch things I've added to the queue from searches while on my PC.

Wow, you've got an awesome writing style.! I really dig the narrator's back story, humor, sarcasm, and the plethora of pop culture references. Altogether a refreshingly different RotR journal (not that I don't like the more traditional ones, mind you).

I don't use Netflix myself, but I have a friend who watches anime with it on his PS3. I think that anime just doesn't have its own category and is lumped in with television (do cartoons have their own category?) and movies depending on what it is. I don't know exactly what the categories are (not having used it myself), but I do know that there are other things mixed in with the anime, so some quick searching should let you find what you're looking for hopefully.

I've found that this is the best way, in my opinion.

Isn't it a sub-genre under "Animation" or something? If not, some of the other genres might have sub-genres for it (like, Sci-Fi & Fantasy --> Anime Sci-Fi). I can't quite remember, but I know there are some designations for it around in there.

I spent about 30 minutes last night searching through the menus on the PS3. There was Movies, TV, and under each was just generic things like "Drama" "Action Adventure" "SciFi Fantasy". There was one called Animation, but searching through all the titles in there, it was old and new cartoons from Nickelodeon and the similar (Ren and Stimpy, Hey Arnold, etc, etc.)

The only time I saw any Japanese animation was when it was in the "similar titles". One linked to Ghost in the Shell, and then from there, there were a few similar title links to Darker than Black and a few others.

If the category is there, it's definitely not in as easy a spot to find as it is on the netflix website.

I would just watch them on not netflix where you can get subs instead of dubs, but that is just me. I have tried watching a few dubs on netflix and it reminds me why I hate pretty much anything that doesn't get something huge like disney behind it, Miyazaki and Ghibli for instance. That also reminds me contact funimation about convention possibilities cus they are cool and support stuff like that even if their dubs are bad.

A lot are pretty bad yeah. I rather enjoyed watching Ouran Host Club in the dub though. I astounded myself by not realizing that Tamaki was voiced by Vic Mignogna until about 3/4'ers of the way through the series. >.> While his characters are usually very flamboyant (and I mean that in the over-exaggerated way, not the **** way), I do think he's a pretty talented VA.
