The thread title says between 13-24 episodes. 24 is really a random number since most anime end in 13 or 26. Anyway, I would like to say that MOST anime that exceed 26 usually suck. The plot would tend to drag and be flooded with mind numbing filler. If the anime were episodic then it might not be too bad. You know, something like comedy. Doraemon already has more than 1000 episodes and is still airing.


you are truly WRONG! most of them are the most famous and ROCK

FLCL is an OVA!!! Do people even read threads or do they just think this is a shoutout box?
I'd like to give a shoutout to my homeboy Kenshin just because this is apparently a shoutout box.

I'm gonna say Serial Experiments Lain, Haibane Renmei, Rozen Maiden and Zero no Tsukaima.


Also, FLCL an OVA?? Really? Then what series did it come from?? Considering it's a stand alone storyline, I would consider it it's own series as I'm sure many others do. Quit splitting hairs, it's annoying.

Just playing devil's advocate (for both sides) it is quite common for an OVA to be released which is completely unrelated to any series. However, some of these (when successful) become series in their own right. For example, Bubblegum Crisis was originally a single 50-minute OVA release. It was popular enough that it became a (rather short, sporadically produced) OVA Series. Also, Techi Muyo! was (as I'm assuming most people here should know) an OVA before anything else.

I understand the distinction that arx7arbalest is trying to make. There is usually a significant difference in structure and production values between an OVA series and any other short series. However, I also agree that it is not really that significant of a point in the end, since the line between OVA and series can be (and is) fairly blurry.

You, krazy, are an idiot. No offense, but with the exception of the Gundam series, I haven't ever had a long series maintain my interest. They usually are simply too repetitive or watered-down. There are even a number of 26-episode series which would have been better (in my opinion) if they had been condensed to 13 episodes. It has only been recently that loooooooong series like Naruto, One Piece, and Inuyasha have become really popular, and that is really only due to aggressive marketing and widespread American distribution.
