Anime on Netflix

Hey everyone, first time posting here,

Anyone else signed up to Netflix yet, I signed up to the 1 month trial and was
delighted to see an Anime film selection, but it just happend to be about 20 films,
Just wondering if anyone else has signed up to Netflix, whats your opinion on their Anime selection. Theres a way to switch to the American version of Netflix, any one else done this yet? Is there a bigger selection of Anime?

The US version has a better selection, and also a handful of subtitled shows as well as dubs (like Death Note). Also seems to have more Ghibli titles.

Some good stuff on the Irish one too - Summer Wars, Melancholy of Haruhi etc... - but I just cannot watch dubs

Aye the American version has a big selection of anime - thought I read somewhere that it was part of their strategy to bulk up their content and it appears anime is pretty cheap when compared to other shows

Just watched the first 2 episodes of Claymore on Netflix. It's dubbed but still awesome.

We can not discuss ways to circumvent Netflix's copyright
