It can get bad if the writing suffers as a result. For every One Piece out there, there is a Bleach or Naruto. Keeping things short and to the point prevents stagnation and GARBAGE from being produced, after all.

I enjoy long Anime for the most part. One Piece is fine, since the show does not have many fillers. However, both Bleach and Naruto have way too many fillers and I cannot stand it. Then there are shows like Yu Yu Hakusho who finished right after 100+ episodes that felt perfect.

Sure shows like One Piece are long, unnecessarily so but it's managed to maintain high quality so far. Then there are shows like Naruto, I like Naruto but with all the filler especially its just been going on way too long. It wouldn't be as hard to watch without all the ridiculously bad fillers though.

Then we come to the king of absurdly long anime. Freaking Detective Conan. Sure I like Conan but I stopped watching it after about 20 episodes, because every episode is the same, how many mystery oriented murder episodes can a person possibly watch? Detective Conan might be a decent quality show, but it has absolutely no business being more than like 50 episodes maximum. Even that would be stretching it, but yet Conan has 700 episodes so far and they haven't bothered to write the ending. The worst part about Conan is the fact that 99% of the episodes have no story advancement and are simply standalone episodes that do nothing for the overall plot arc which doesn't really exist after maybe the first 6 episodes. Just give us the ending and call it done already.

It's very odd, I get very intimidated with long shows, but when it comes to Gintama I never want it to end. I think with comedies it is easier to watch since they are mostly episodic and there isn't as much pressure to watch every single episode. Also they probably figured that some people don't want huge arcs so they keep their arcs about 3-6 episodes each (but still keeping the show suspenseful). And in comparison to Naruto or One Piece, there isn't that many episodes.

Speaking of Naruto, I do like that show alot, but the arcs are way too long for me (I still haven't finished the Chuunin exam arc! It just keeps going) I really like it and I enjoy the characters but just thinking about how there is a whole other series with Shippuden waiting for me...that's just off-putting. Same with One Piece, I haven't seen it in a few years but from what I hear it is getting better so I want to see it though I doubt I can ever catch up.

Nope. I mean, if you love something, why would you want it to end?

I think there a lot of short anime that are too long, though. No, really. Take A Certain Scientific Railgun, for example. If it had been 12 episodes long it would've been fun, but 24 episodes overstayed its welcome (A Certain Scientific Railgun S, however, is pure concentrated awesome). Maoyu was just 12 episodes, but honestly that was too long. If it had been six episodes long it would've been a pretty damn good show, but 12...snoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooore.

Once you're into the 50 or 100 episode range, though, don't stop. Shine on you crazy anime.

If every episode is pure gold then I don't mind how many episodes it has. If it slowly becomes trash over time the I say "off with its head". First 135 episodes of Naruto were good. No reason it should have ever made it to 220. Dragon Ball should have ended after the Cell arc.

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.)



I don't mean to sound like a dick but listen to this.
People have different opinions.
I'm a huge fan of shows like One Piece and Gintama and love long shows because I get to keep watching my favorite characters weekly and see many of their adventures.
If you don't like them don't watch them it's as simple as that and stop complaining there are other short anime's you can watch.
I love shorter anime's as well but I don't shit on a show because "I don't have the time."
I'm sorry to say this but company's can care less about you'r time they will keep making episodes for their fans and the money they pull in.

Ooph, depends. I follow Naruto to an extent, but would probably have enjoyed it a lot more if I'd begun watching from when it started. Now I'd feel compelled to focus on all the already released episodes and I would probably drop it. I've seen a few episodes and relied on the games to fill in my knowledge of whats happened. Otherwise I prefer shorter animes because I'm not stuck with the same thing for too long so it's more refreshing. I also hear Naruto has become subject to a bollock load of flashbacks so I'm holding off and letting the games show me what I need to know regardless of what the quality is like in comparison to the show.

For me, its all about the execution. Naruto and One Piece pull it off well because their arcs are short enough that the story progresses at a reasonable pace without dragging too much. Bleach, on the other hand, was horrible in that respect. Half the show or more was dominated by the Aizen arc, with any given fight typically encompassing several episodes. That's also what made Bleach's filler so terrible. Unlike Naruto or One Piece, where filler can comfortably sit between major arcs, there was no room for them in Bleach, meaning the story had to be temporarily put on hold in order to make room for them.
