Netflix, while it isn’t quite as formidable in anime as Crunchyroll, has still built up a vast and growing anime library. If you want to dive deeper into Netflix’s anime lineup, you can use widely publicized category codes, and here’s a deep dive into all of them.

If you’re unfamiliar with Netflix category codes, you can check out our main guide of the 4000+ codes that help you filter Netflix’s 6000+ title library.

How do they work? Essentially a team of Netflix taggers assigns titles to numerous categories and descriptors that help the Netflix algorithm (and you) sort through the titles to see what you might want to watch next.

How do you use the Netflix category codes? You can either type in the number of the code listed below into the search box or use the genre page on the website to filter through numerous genres.

Sort Netflix by Japanese Language Dubs/Subs

Another way to sort through anime specifically out of Japan is to sort Netflix by language. Netflix recently added a new tab onto the web version, allowing you to sort by a title’s original language.

Here’s the link to sort Netflix by Japanese. However, this will serve up both live-action and animated content from the region. Likewise, there’s no way of sorting which Japanese titles have dubbing or subtitle options.

Finally, two other quick plugs. If you’re in the United States, you can browse 200+ anime titles on Netflix via our Netflix Library A-Z.
