I was wondering why there isin't an option to sort by Horror/Psychological anime in the filter system? I'm not sure if there's just not enough anime of that genre or something.. but yeah. they're like my favorite genres so i'm just curious.

Horror, or at least what Westerners consider horror, is one of the least represented genres in anime. The Japanese have a very different sense of what's off-putting, so anything that would get labeled as "horror" likely wouldn't appeal to horror fans.

Plus, the genre labels and tags aren't entirely consistent across CR's entire library.

As Eyeofpain says above, the tags aren't very consistent, and I'd even add that they sometimes point to shows CR doesn't have from the old "library" functionality, as well as including live drama shows you may not be interested in, but then again, that doesn't mean that they are completely useless, either. There are a few "finds" out there if you can take the time to go through them.

Do a right-click on these and open each in a new tab. Some are more useful than others...

/showtag?tag=mystery&type=2
/showtag?tag=horror&type=2
/showtag?tag=suspense&type=2
/showtag?tag=thriller&type=2
/showtag?tag=psychological&type=2
