Netflix and Categories
As we all should know, Netflix is one of, if not the #1 most successful streaming service available online. With that being said, there are hundreds of different titles available all across the application. All of these genres can range from simple documentaries, action-adventure stories, horror movies and series, and of course, comedies aren’t excluded from the list.
Now, that leads to one problem, not all movies and shows are as simple to find as looking into one genre. There are many sub genres of movies that a lot of videos will fall under. So, it could be a little tedious when attempting to locate ore specific sub genres and shows.
Anime on Netflix
With that being said, Anime is definitely one of those genres that falls under the aforementioned. There are loads of different types of Anime available on Netflix. Furthermore, this broad category of videos may be one of the more difficult to specifically locate on the application. That’s because, Anime is already an entirely different demographic of videos. Every anime can fall under any regular category of videos.
And now the question must be raised, “How to find all Anime on Netflix?” Surely, it shouldn’t be too difficult, considering all Anime can be categorized by their respective genres (e.g. finding any horror anime in the horror section of Netflix).
However, it is not that simple. Since Anime is very niche, you may not even find a single anime on the list of horror films. Most likely, you would only find the most popular in horror movies and television series. Sadly, this would not include any Anime, unless that specific Anime is surprisingly popular and has a big enough fan base.
Luckily, there is a way to pinpoint these Japanese animations by category. Although, this method will require a bit of extra work than just scrolling through the different genres on the Netflix app.
No worries, by the end of this article, you will regularly search for your anime with ease. Continue on to find out how it’s done.
