So I have been kind of wondering for a while and I can't seem to find anything to explain it, how can animes like Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tail, Bleach, etc. have so many episodes? I have seen repeatedly that animes are very expensive to produce and that most animes only get around 12-24 episodes. So how do these other animes stay running for so long? Is it success in viewings in Japan? Number of mangas sold? It seems like a crapshoot whether the anime will run for a long time or not.

If it's run for a very, very long time, it's probably Shonen Jump.

If it hasn't, does it really matter? Some are short, and some are a bit longer, but they're all special in their own way.

My friend , its business in Japan. The younger the target audience the more popular it gets, the more popular it gets, the more money it makes from sales, from etc etc etc , the more money it makes , the more anime production gets done and the cycle continues until the manga story ends.
So if there is a new anime that you like that is popular outside of Japan but not in Japan therefore not making much money in Japan, then mostly likely it wont get another season, that the pattern for the longest time ,for the most part but at times the other reason is that is not enough material or the story ends in the manga.
If you go to ANN , there is an article of which anime is the top 10 and most of the the top 10 are long running anime for younger audience.
