Provided is a method for manufacturing nylon 6, said method being capable of producing a higher degree of crystallinity in a polymer at the end of a polymerization step performed on an anionically polymerizable caprolactam melt. The present invention is a method in which molten caprolactam in a reactor is anionically polymerized in the presence of a carbodiimide compound and both an anionic polymerization catalyst and an activator, neither of which is a carbodiimide compound, and a polymer is obtained from the reactor following the end of the polymerization step, yielding nylon 6 with a degree of crystallinity of at least 42% without raising the temperature of the interior of the reactor from the temperature thereof at the end of the polymerization step.
