Was just curious for anyone following some of the longer running series on what exactly they are about? I read the anime details and watched a episode or two, but it didn’t seem that interesting. Obviously, they have to be doing something right to be running for so long that a lot of people enjoy. The only two I follow are Naruto/Bleach, just curious, anyone who follows the other longer running series can you give a note on when the series actually gets interesting or is it just me that just not my thing? Did you find the beginning episodes boring until later, or found it interesting right away? What makes these anime series stand out so much?

+No need to respond on Pokemon.

Gintama
Reborn
Shugo Chara
One Piece
Case Closed

Any I’m forgetting?

Yeah, Naruto.

But Gintama, Case Closed, One Piece, and Reborn are probably the only four worth watching.

Shugo Chara is just frilly magical girls that wear skirts too short for their age, constant navel exposure, annoying midget like creatures with large heads that can fly and say "doki!", and a repetitive plot. Some of the episodes are interesting, but it's more targeted towards younger audiences, so of course I would find it dumb.

Shugo Chara is very boring in party 3. Watch only the first 2 seasons.

Lmao, your description on Shugo Chara was hilarious. I felt that way too. For me, Reborn is the only one worth watching. The rest I'm only hitting on the mangas since the fillers really creep me out.

Reborn was ok in the beggining, not that great. it wasnt till the first Big battle that i really started to like it, so around episode 30 it cuaght my interest.
One piece was pretty good up to episode 120, then i just kind of fell off and completely lost interest.
Case closed was just a good show to watch every now and then, each episode is pretty unique. i just watched maybe 3-4 episodes in a 7 day week, eventually caught up at one point.
I gave shugo chara a try when CR was doing the event to gather tokens for memberships. I watch 1- 15 and it really started to get annoying. i couldnt stand to hear about 1 more hearts egg or i was going to stab myself or someone near me. i wouldnt advise this for the older audiance.
Most of these shows do really well because they are very unique. you dont see many shows like them. Naruto has ninjas and ninja techniques. Bleach has huge swords and flashy moves as well as really weird plots/ enemies. One piece is about a pirate kid that can stretch farther than my bubble gum, that is just random.

Apparently, I seldom like Anime's with long number of episodes.
Gintama - only lasted up to episode 10.
Reborn - watched the first 2, then dropped it
One Piece - watched 100 episodes, eventually got lost

I think the only one worth watching is Detective Conan (Case Closed). Well, Shugo Chara is kinda retarded...

^ I totally agree.

Shugo Chara is such a let down! It had a promising start but it got so repetitive.
As for Detective Conan, it's worth watching. Each episode is unique. It's really enjoyable to solve the case before the episode ends.

well i have never watched conan but shugo chara was like nope after the first ep just really weird, one piece i dropped the anime around ep 400 something because the manga and anime are exactly the same so when i started reading the manga and got past the anime i found it pointless to watch but still a great show, gintama is one of my favorite shows after the first couple of episodes it just starts to get better and better, and as for reborn i lost interest around episode 100 something though i will say it was pretty interesting when i started after they got to the future arc it just kinda started to die off
