You know what grinds my gears? Anime with 100 plus episodes. Because then its just tooooooooo muchhhhhhhh. I.e. Bleach, Gintama, Naruto, One Piece, etc

I would love to watch these Anime, however I DONT HAVE THAT KIND OF TIME! I know they are filler riddled, ain't nobody got time fo dat. Or they just complete throw in random things. if you are reading the Naruto Shippuden Manga and watching the Anime, you will know exactly what I'm talking.

(or rather I'm to impatient to sit through it because I know there are fillers and what not.)

I think 64 Episodes is perfect. FMA:BH was 64 and it was long enough to be great. 12 episodes? I can deal with that, but most Anime just show 12 Episodes and leaves us to only the Manga (Like Ouran High School Host Club, Dance in the Vampire Bund, etc). 24 episodes is perfect, but I'd like more. Rurouni Kenshin was 96 episodes if I remember correctly, and it was a pushing it a bit. (though I can't say anything wrong about it, as it was a masterpiece on a level of its own.)

Many of them have that many episodes, I'm assuming, it's because creators believe most of their potential audience has already seen the older episodes and wants more

Why are people consistently posting in the wrong section?

Nope.

I love long animes and long novels (Sword of Truth, Harry Potter) and long TV shows (Battlestar Galactica).

Don't get me wrong though, I'm not a fan of fillers or endless fight scenes that go on for 2+ episodes (as commonly seen in animes such as Naruto and Bleach).

I'm not sure why people are complaining about them though, you can skip the fight scenes and the fillers. And when reviewing the anime, the fillers shouldn't be taken into account, but that's just my opinion.

One piece is one of my favorite shows, i actually just watched the latest episode right before i got on crunchyroll. As of right now, there are 601 episodes. It really is a lot but honestly, when i really get into it, its impossible to stop

Look mah friend, I'll give you a really useful advice... Don't take it as a tedious obligation, just seat, use your computer, open the episode and enjoy! and I know... Many of those have lots of filler, usually when Naruto is on filler season I don't watch it... Bleach/One Piece I actually liked their fillers (anyways, if you find them tedious you can always read their mangas) aaand... Gintama is a must watch, it's super epic and you really ROFL so hard (try watching Gintama first, you'll eat all those eps in one week)

To catch up if you missed something is one thing, I'd rather have a ton of episodes for story than too few.
Some of the 25+/- episode series just feel too rushed and unfinished to me.

Get a rough episode guide, figure out what episodes or arcs you don't need to care about, fillers for example, and run through what you want to see.

Once you get up into the 200 episode mark, it's time to end it. I actually prefer anime with only about 26 episodes and maybe a couple of OVAs. The only anime I watched with more than 200 episodes was Yugioh. I didn't even stick around for the spin offs like 5D's. 200 was enough for me and card games.

Biggest reason I hate shows that long is it takes forever for things to come together. Like starting something in episode one and having to wait years and years for it to resolve...annoying as hell. If I do end up getting into a show that long, I usually wait till the series has concluded and then I will watch the episodes as I please.

I feel the same way, the one piece fillers, for the most part, were actually really good and funny. Usually they have to do with things we wouldn't usually see in an anime, things you would see in fan made stuff so its really fun to see! To be honest, one piece is a hard show to get into. The start of it is kind of slow and boring, but the show gets better and better as time goes on. You can think of it like a roller coaster. The start of the show is the bottom, and as the show goes on it gets better, and better and better. Once you get past enies lobby arc, the show really takes a turn for the better. I think once you get past that point the show just blows it self out of the water with how good it gets. Don't get me wrong the earlier arcs are good, but once you get to this one it just steamrolls out of control of how good it is.

While I understand the sentiment, I've also found that with long-running shows, you get more attached to the characters, if only because you've spent so much time watching them. Even annoying or nearly intolerable characters start to gain a bit of charm as you get to know them better, and soon enough you're in a position to keep watching just because you want to know what happens to the characters you've come to like. The plot of Space Brothers isn't really anything special, and I didn't even enjoy it all that much for a good portion of the show. However, there was a point when I realized that, without realizing it, I had gradually begun to like and care about what happens to the people in the show. Nothing incredibly spectacular happened, but nonetheless, I had "gotten to know" the characters because of all the time I had spent watching them, and the show had become interesting.

Plus, while the long running shows admittedly have a lot of drivel, they very likely have at least something enjoyable about them if they're that popular. Naruto is painful at times, but it also has some incredibly awesome moments that wouldn't be nearly as cool if you didn't have the attachment to the characters built through hundreds of episodes (especially in Gintama's case: You can't break the bonds forged through 60 volumes of DVD's ) But even so, the length is regardless to the quality of the show, and with so many characters and events, you can be almost sure that you'll like at least some part of it. It also means that you can be almost sure there'll be something you don't like about it. Whether you like the show or not as a whole depends on whether the good stuff outweighs the frustration.
