So obviously people have favorite among genre, but what about length?

I personally like for an anime to have 24 episodes in a season(season/end completely), only because i think that 12 is way to short, and anything more is just ridiculously repeatable.

What's your take?

I concur. There are very few 12 episode anime that don't leave me with the feeling of "Oh wait... that's it?". There are anime I like that are longer but some just get ridiculous. Especially when you get to the series with 200+ episodes.

I like around 50-100 mainly since it gives me something to watch for a long time, i finished a 12 ep. anime today in like 4 hours.

It entirely depends on the story. I like 12/13 because, it forces the story to get to the point quickly. But for a good story, I'll happily stick around for as many episodes as are needed. I don't like very long running series: too much filler.

Madoka Magica was done perfectly in 12 episodes. I certainly wanted more, but extending it past that point would have made the show weaker.

Steins;Gate, on the other hand, needed 24 episodes to properly tell its story. Any less, and the story would have been rushed.

The Endless Eight segment... well, that was just a money grab.

I like 25 episodes since it usually has the proper length to develop and flesh out the characters but at the end of the day, it boils to being able to present an interesting story.

It really depends on the story or ability to tell a story, but I generally prefer around 26 episodes. That generally gives enough time to properly develop the characters.

i prefer anime to be around 26 to around 50 episodes if there is enough source material to work with without having to create "original content"
if there isn't a lot of material to work with, 12-13 episodes is fine with me

for some reason with anime of over a hundred episodes, i am never able to watch all of them and end up skipping around from episode to episode lol

I like animes that end around the 26-40 mark. Anything long like 100+ epis. and I start to lose interest. Plus those usually have too many fillers and unfortunately I don't make till the end. Which I hope I can with Naruto since I've stopped paying attention to it for a while.

I agree with natsume29. If the plot is interesting enough and fillers do not overtake the show, I can watch a show for a long time (even to 100+ episodes).
