1 Detective Conan

Detective Conan

The canon episodes are quite impressive. Well thought out plot and mystery. Also, one of the few shounen shows that doesn’t waste its minor characters.

Painfully slow, throughout. Too many characters who seemed to have been thrown in to extend the number of episodes.

18 Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's

Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's

Ugh, bad animation. Also, why is it that the main character seems like the only person who doesn’t have a horrible/warped personality.

19 JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (2012)

  • JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure 26 eps
  • Stardust Crusaders 24 eps
  • Stardust Crusaders Egypt-hen 24 eps
  • Unbreakable Diamond 39 eps

Diamond is Unbreakable is the best arc, in terms of character design, plot and production.

  • Alicization 24 eps

It was great until the 4th episode or something. Then came the disturbing revelation that this show sells entertainment through sexual predatoring.

28 Kodocha

Kodocha

102 episodes 

Weird, at first. The comedy and the way the characters talked were really hard to get used to. Then came the heavy drama which made me cry like a baby.

29 Mobile Suit Gundam SEED

Mobile Suit Gundam SEED

2 seasons, 100 episodes

  • Seed 50 eps
  • Seed Destiny 50 eps

Immature characters really got on my nerves, but they matured through the 1st season. 2nd season was bad.

  • S3 24 eps

Entertaining, sometimes moving, and the love triangle is appealing.

The perfect thiller in anime history. Beware of midnight binges because you won’t be able to stop.

You should definitely add Initial D and Fist of the North Star, they fit the 50+ episode mark.
