Does anyone else besides me think that animes with small amounts of episodes /shorter lenght are better than really long animes like DBZ and naruto?

I think its because they get to the point quicker, they are not clogged up with fillers and are usually more dramatic.

animes which are 12 episodes long always leave me wanting more. 26 episode animes are ok, 52 episode animes are pushing it and stuff like naruto bleach DBZ and case closed are too long for the bother!


Those are shonen anime , they are usually like that, character development and the story/plot moves slow (repetitive fighting gives the illusion that something is happening).

I also watch Naruto and Bleach (I didn't really expect them to go on this long), both shows are long, and the fillers make them seem even longer..
What I do is, I skip the fillers and only watch the manga arcs.

I'm satisfied after a watching a 50-75 anime episodes, but if it's really interesting, it would be ok if it has a lil bit more episodes; but just a lil bit!!!
even though, i loved to watch The Prince of Tennis, with 178 episodes without including the OVAs, and the 2 movies.

Not necessarily true. Most animes tend to be long because it is impossible for them to be short. Imagine Gintama only having 13-26 episodes. What do you think will happen if that is the case? Of course, I would prefer a longer Gintama because there are many arc and more hilarity that needs to be covered. However, some shows that are long just tend to drag like Naruto, Bleach, and many more. Some shows are just okay to be long because the manga can't be covered in just 13-26 episodes, like One Piece.

Some extremely "ecchi" shows are better to be shorter because they just get more boring the longer they air, like Kanokon. Some are okay being having 12-13 episodes, like Ef ~a tale of memories~ which will have a second season with different character lead. But they will be no stranger to you if you watched the second season (That would be Amamiya Yuko and that blond girl with a pigtail [I forgot the name]). Short shows tend to have a better animation quality because the problem in budget seems to be a rarity, rarity because there are 12-13 episode shows with crappy quality like Vampire Knight. 26 episodes is the ideal episode number in a show because in a 26 episode show, there can already be a great deal of character development and plot twist. Of course, shows with broader plot are an exemption.

To put it simply, the greatness of the show depends mainly on the plot itself, not to the number of episode that the show possess because not all long animes are bad, and not all short animes are good.


agree

it depends on the anime and what you are going for

for example cased closed i liked watching for the cases not necessarily the story line

but some of the shorter animes can be really impressionable such as cowboy bebop, trigun, or elfin lied

i like short animes coz they're short and sweet. Story may not be developed enough and the ending may be mediocre but dragging it on for 80 or more eps doesnt really appeal to me. It just becomes a drag and boring to watch imho.

I always love short animes because there are no room for countless of filler episodes instead almost every episode has to be important for the story. I don't think that the short animes is undeveloped instead many of them follows an red line while animes like, Dragon ball, gintama, one piece, Naruto, bleach and so on don't really follows an story in the end because the mass number of episodes is because the producers wants to make as much money as ever possible on popular animes so they make filler after filler.

The shorter the OVA animes, the better the quality.
