Does Netflix have enough anime shows to form an opinion about what makes a good or bad anime? I watched Claymore and think thats the most amazing anime Ive ever watched. I'd say it one

of the best anime's. Its made me want to watch other anime on Netflix and see if I find a gem like I did by watching Claymore. Im not liking how most anime on Netflix has a girl as the lead charactor.

Netflix has some good anime definitely, stuff like Monster and Spice and Wolf. Not that familiar with it's selection though, and it depends on what you're looking for.

I recommend CrunchyRoll is you want to pay for streaming anime. They get new shows right after they air in Japan.

For anime? I don't know, very few anime have good english dubs. Most of the take me right out of the show, especially female voices.

The selection of anime is pretty decent. Major problem is, last I checked, there's no option for the original audio track.

They've got quite a bit of stuff, although much of it can be seen on Funimation.

anime like everything else is about 95% crap. netflix has a ton but very few are all that great or anything i would ever recomend.

they are mostly panty shot boy fantasy as opposed to anything important or that makes anime look like an artform as opposed to just typical pop culture trash.

netflix basically is no grave of the firefly or naussica but plenty of highschool alien fashion model by day vampire hunter by night garbage.

I'd say they do plenty of good anime shows on there but its all dubbed and I personally can't stand watching dubbed anime series other then a select few series like Dragonball Z and Full Metal Alchemist so I don't watch any anime netflix offers. I mostly just want to watch the new anime series airing each season subtitled in english so I get my anime fix mostly on crunchyroll.com and some other sites like as www.niconico.com and theanimenetwork.com

I would rather use Crunchyroll over Netflix for anime.

Some say it has too much

while others argue that the amount is not enough

but to form an opinion on it, I would say yes
