Top 10 Long Running Anime.
I love getting into anime shows, but for the most part they just aren’t long enough, 12 episodes leaves no time for character development, 26 episodes always seem to rush the ending into the last 2 episodes, where 50 episodes or longer seem to be paced pretty well, yes they can drag a little in parts but they have time to give you back information into all the characters you’ve really started to get attached to.
So here’s a list of the long anime shows I’ve come across and been able to find and watched , they run long enough for you to really sink your teeth into ^_^.
1. Get Backers – 49 episodes completed
2. Rurouni Kenshin – 95 episodes completed
3. Naruto- 220 episodes completed – followed by Naruto Shippuden
4. Naruto Shippuden – 178 episodes, Currently ongoing
5. Bleach – 289 episodes, Currently ongoing
6. Saiyuki / Saiyuki Reload / Saiyuki GunLock – 50, 25, and 26 episodes respectively.
7. Yu Yu Hakusho – 112 episodes, Completed
8. Dragonball Z – 291 episodes, Completed
9. One Piece - 467 episodes, Currently ongoing
10. Fullmetal Alchemist / Brotherhood – 51 episodes, 64 episodes respectively.
Ok so I said the top 10 but I have to give a special mention to Detective Conan, with its mass amount of episodes.
