Depends on the show. Unfortunately a lot of shows have filler, which sucks if it's retcon at the the 1st chance it gets. So you watched it for no good reason!!
Filler in naruto shippuden at least offered an interesting insight that the mangaka help by not filling it in manga, or like the early bleach filler explained various things between time gap of arcs. Made it more interesting that other stuff was happening and not just a sudden jump in time.

I used to be put off with large no.s of eps like detective conan and one piece. After watching conan, I now am less inclined to turn down anime if it's longer. I just like skipping really bad filler i.e. if it's obviously done to a, waste time or b, has no impact on the story/no real wow story within the story, or c, it's the dreaded reminder ep, a whole ep of nothing but clips of previous stories and retells the audience what has happened previously. I understand why they do it but it just ruins the whole point of watching the previous eps.

All in all, I like shows with a fair few eps, that way it's not rushed, but I prefer shows with a great story and if that story warrants a lot of eps, then it's worth it.

If every episode is good I don't care how long a series is. I'll procrastinate out of anything over 50 episodes for a long time before getting around to it though. And more than that, something like One Piece is just... inhumane.

The only anime that had over 200 episodes that I thought was fine was Gintama. Every other anime with that many episodes either has way too much filler, or in One Piece's case, there is just too many episodes that I lose motivation to even start watching it.

Only anime that is over 100 episodes I liked were Fairy Tail and Gintama. Everything else is too long and filled with filler, I like Fairy Tail's fillers though. I like the usual 24 or 25 episodes of an anime with a possible OVA or even a movie as well as a second or third season. As long as it's broken down to be 25 episodes or under per season I'm fine with it. Some anime that exceed the episode count can get away with it but I prefer the 25 episodes per season then after a few years a second season, movie, and some OVA .

I'm not a fan of long series because I can't see watching anime for a decade or more. Pokemon for example started in 1998, so it's been running for over fifteen years. People run the risk of literally growing out of the anime they watch. About 13-26 episodes are fine, I think.

Sometimes it's necessary. But I guess I can't say that because I've never watched anything (besides Naruto a looong time ago) with that many episodes. I guess I know where you're coming from, though. It sucks when a potentially great series, like Bleach or Gintama is just too damned long to enjoy properly.

I think two seasons is a good number, if the anime is good. Maybe 3 if it's totally awesome.

The long ones are hard to get through, especially if they're really good but just overflowing with filler episodes like Bleach.

I heard people bitch and moan about watching series that have over 50 episodes, yet they are the same people watching 6-7 shows per season. Denying themselves something they may enjoy because of a number. That said I enjoyed One Piece and Naruto but would never recommend those series to anyone. After a certain point the production team really don't give a shit about the anime. Voice actors/actresses get tired, directors get lazy, animators get sloppy, the writers don't give a fuck and the money starts to get tight. One Piece is a shadow of it's former self now and that makes me sad. That's because the people working on it don't really have a plan or end in sight.

25 episodes with 2 PVs that don't count as episodes and a episode 0 is cool also

In an era where networks are too quick to cancel good shows before they have a chance why would amyone want less episodes of a show you like? If you don't like it why would it even matter to you that it has so many episodes? I'm sorry but I just can't contemplate that school of thought. It's like looking at your dog, or cat saying "well I got 4 good years out of you...now I'm bored of you", taking it out back and shooting it. It makes absolutely no sense to me.

Yes! They need to stop cutting around the bush and get right into it.
