I think Netflix fails to see the demand is allot stronger than they think it is. This might be partially because anime fans do tend to be picky (sub vs dub to be direct,) and very cautious of anime host, to which Netflix really isn't doing itself any favors with the recent cuts.
That, or their main anime host Funimation, vice gripped Netflix's balls one too many times. Either way, the fans are losing, and are not happy, just wish they'd be more vocal about it.

If you can physically endure Subs (not an insult, I literally can't watch subbed media after a period of time) you could try Hulu. Their library is much bigger than Netflix. The downside aside from no dubs is they cut off mid series. And I don't mean "oh, this part hasn't been released yet/needs a selling period before we can upload it" I mean "you get this amount of episodes, and then you're cut off." Tenchi Universe, for example, stops right at the first episode of the "Dream World" arc.
I heard about CrunchyRoll, but my info on that is super vague, so assuming it's 99% sub isn't out of ballpark to me. Also, probably the least accessible on host machines (ps3 Wii Roku Blu-Ray players etc) so if that's how you watch, you're SOL.
There may be another monthly service, I saw an add on another site, but didn't click on it. Said it was majority dubbed, but I lack information.
