Was wondering if people prefer an anime over 2 seasons with 12/13 episodes per season or do they prefer a 1 season 26 episode anime.

For me I think it rather depends on the content and plot of the show, some animes like "The Vision of Escaflowne" was great going on for 26 episodes, I felt that not one episode was wasted on ether fillers or side-stories and that every episode had purpose and developed either the characters or the story in one way or another. Another great anime was "Mushishi", given the episodic nature of the anime I thought that it might not work out well seeing as there is a lack of a common plot to link the different episodes, but the anime is quite frankly the work of genius and as soon as I started an episode I couldn't stop watching. Other shows however tend to "waste" alot of episodes either on character introduction or side-stories, fillers and the like before getting into the main plot (if there is one, note that some animes even lack a main plot) "Kuroshitsuji" is an example of this, even though the anime is quite good I felt that alot of episodes where meaningless and the show lacked the impact needed to capture my atention. 12 episode anime's usually get straight to the point and if the plot is good can be quite an entertaining experience ("Birdy the Mighty Decode) is an example of this.

Sorry for the long rant, but I guess my point to all this is that if we assume that a good plot is present, would you prefer a two season 12/13 episode per season anime or a one season 26 episode anime?

I prefer a 26 episode anime or shorter, maybe it's cause it is to the point and doesn't drag on with fillers.
I don't watch that many series, but most of what I like are in that limit.

I would love to find a 50+ episode anime that I actually liked. Unfortunately, most 50+ animes are Naruto, One Piece, or something like that that I am NOT interseted in.

I wish 12 Kingdoms had ended up being as long as it was supposed to instead of being cut in half. All the loose ends and uncompleted side stories drive me nuts.

Any suggestions on a long anime that's not totally for immature boys (sorry, that's just my opinion) or shallow girls (see, I can dish both ways).

I prefer something like Ouran High School Host Club comprised of 1 season with over 20 eps over something like Vampire Knight with 15 something eps for both seasons. I like one big flow instead of 2 short flows. So.. yeah one season with 26 eps.

I actually like longer ones, but animes that are 26 episodes long usually seem better to me. Still, I'd rather they continued.

I don't care about length! Usually though, I don't bother to watch any 12 or less episode anime.

Surprised I'm in a minority here, I love animes that last as long as possible. DBZs 200+ still aren't enough.

Two seasons, though it depends on how the ending is. If I liked where it ended then I would only want one season.
