With Naruto Shippuden having just ended last week after ten years, 500 episodes, and a bazillion of filler arcs, some of it just there to needlessly milk out the franchise seeing that it was made in spite of the manga being finished, that now would be the appropriate time to ask this question as Naruto transitions into the Boruto series.

There are several interpretations here, but just to be clear, be sure to indicate whether you have watched every episode of the series, skipped any episodes of the series (as there are some people here that skipped filler arcs of certain shows) but reached the end of it, or if the series is ongoing and you are up to date on it (ex. One Piece that is approaching 800 episodes).

With the exception of big shounen titles, it would probably be Space Brothers for me.

I recommend it for anyone.

Personally, Spongebob Squarepants is the longest anime I have watched. I would definitely call it a slice of life anime but some people watch it for Mr. Krabs (he has curves in all the right places ). It does have a bit too much fan service but I can't say I don't enjoy it .

The first hundred episodes of Shugo Chara (Shugo Chara and Shugo Chara Doki, but not Shugo Chara Party).

I've probably seen more episodes of Case Closed than that, but I've seen less than half of Case Closed (probably about half of the first 150, back in the day, and then everything from when Crunchy's part starts until... about last December? I need to catch up, but yeah).

ALL
Bleach — watched all
Hunter x Hunter — watched all, both the 1999 series and 2011 series
Kuroko's Basketball — watched all (except for the movie that just released)

MOST
Naruto — watched majority, not completed
JJBA — watched majority, stalled near the beginning of Diamond

SCATTERED
One Piece — by no means watched all, just enough to get the drift (popular show in my house)

I'd also have to chime in with Space Brothers.

I'm not a fan of most long running shounen titles such as Naruto. Just not my style.

The only really long running series I have finished is Ranma 1/2. With 161 episodes, 12 OAVs and 2 movies of which I have all on DVD. Akane Tendo rocks the world!

The longest anime I've watched to completion is FMA (2003), which is about 50 episodes I think? The super long shows don't hold a lot of appeal to me.

Bleach would be the one but because it's still in progress for me and i'm too lazy to continue, it's Soul Eater instead (51 episodes).

At first I thought Inuyasha (167 episodes), but then I remembered technically I had viewed all of Dragon Ball Z (291 episodes) back when it was first on TV.

Bleach would take the #1 position if I ever get around to finishing the episodes in the middle I skipped over.

I don't really like watching long series. Maybe Chi's Sweet Home with 104 episodes.
Mostly everything else I had seen were like 54 episodes long

I will count Naruto because I watched it all the way to the end with Shippuden, but I honestly skipped a lot of filler episodes in the original series and in Shippuden.

So I guess the longest shows that I've seen and didn't skip anything or just a few episodes would be Bleach, InuYasha, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Hunter x Hunter, Fairy Tail, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z and Saint Seiya. I'm just about to finish Yu Yu Hakusho and I'm planning to watch D.Gray-Man, Fist of the North Star and Katekyo Hitman Reborn at some point too.
