Good I don't need that stuff cluttering up my Netflix.

But seriously maybe its an April Fools Day Netflix prank.

Looks like they're all Funimation titles. Most of them are available on Crackle too, so let's see what happens there, whether this is just a dispute between Funi and Netflix or if they're trying to force people to their own streaming service.

Inuyasha, Nana, and Naruto are from Viz, not Funimation, to name three.

I have the ones I want from that list on DVD already.

Yeah, Bleach is VIZ too. My first instinct was the same, that it was all one studio. Two studios makes it a little more concerning.

Well it's not like there are a lot of domestic studios these days streaming on Netflix. The question is... What's left?

Very true. I'm not sure what all is on Netflix, but those two I believe are the major physical media distributors at present in terms of volume of episodics.
