      The best Netflix Japanese movies +

      My favorite Japanese movies from Netflix

      Yesterday I was asked about my Netflix queue. I was already thinking about making a post about my Netflix movies because last week I received some coupons to give out to friends so they can get a free month of Netflix. So I sat down this morning and compiled a list of all the Japanese movies I have either already watched, or are in my queue. I really do love Netflix. They have a huge selection of all sorts of movies, and starting at $9.99 a month, it really does beat going to Blockbuster and renting movies. They also have a lot of anime, but I like thier selection of live action stuff better.

      I really do like the movies that Viz Pictures have decided to bring over to America, another good starting point in my list. (Linda Linda Linda, Kamikaze Girls, Maiko Haaaan!!!, The Taste of Tea, Love*Com: The Movie, Nana, Nana 2) They are mostly comedies and dramas. I’m also a big fan of Aoi Yu so I have all of her movies on my list. (Hula Girls, Hana & Alice, Honey and Clover, All About Lily Chou-Chou). As far as horror / gore movies, The Machine Girl, Suicide Club, and Ichi the Killer are good places to start.

      I only have four 1 month free coupons to Netflix, so it’s first come first serve. In order to use these, you must go to: and enter the priority code. Here are the codes:





      To see my list of recommended movies, just read the rest of the post.

        Nice list. Unfortunately for me NetFlix doesn’t operate in the UK, so for now I will have to stick to getting ripped off or using bittorrent.

        The only movie I’ve seen on that list is Suicide Circle/Club, lol. I really want to see Adrenaline Drive though. But I’ll have to pass up this opportunity to try out Netflix as I am running out of space on my HDD. :(

        Well, Netflix doesn’t need to save anything to your hard drive. They actually send out normal DVDs. The watch now feature streams certain movies to your computer, but they are not saved. The movie selection for watching online isn’t as good as their DVD selection. However movies do ship very fast.

        If you liked Suicide Club, then you may like Noriko’s Dinner Table as well. It’s a branch off of Suicide Club.

        [...] Would I recommend it? Sure, if you are just looking for something to watch. One thing that I did discover is how cute Aya Matsuura is! Check out my list of recommended Japanese Netflix movies. [...]

        Have you seen the movie with a little boy gets dropped off at some old man’s house. The old man is mean and grumpy does not want him so they go on some journey to find his parents. They lie and do all sorts of stuff to get there.
        I can not remember the title of the movie and it was a cute movie. The only other thing I remember was that I had watched it from Netflix and now I do not have it anymore, there is no way for me to go back and try to find it. I only wish to know the title.
        If you know what I am talking about or can help me find it, please email me at
        THANK YOU!

        I just finished a one month subscription myself with Netflix and was surprised how many Japanese movies they had. Not too bad. Though I was also disappointed with a lot of the movies.
