Anime Series With 50+ Episodes

Shows with 50+ episodes (Adding up episodes from sequels), ranked by the total number of episodes. Excluding short episodes, 3 min shows and OVAs. Good luck if you’re thinking about starting with the show because you’re in for a loooong ride.
1 Detective Conan

Detective Conan

992+ episodes

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.

2 One Piece

One Piece

956+ episodes

3 Dragon Ball

Dragon Ball

6 seasons, 797 episodes 

4 Naruto


720 episodes (including Shippuden)

5 Gintama


8 seasons, 367 episodes

6 Bleach


366 episodes 

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

7 Sgt. Frog

Sgt. Frog

358 episodes

8 Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail

3 seasons, 328 episodes

9 Sailor Moon

Sailor Moon

10 Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters

224 episodes



203 episodes

12 InuYasha


190 episodes (including Kanketsuhen)

The romance was nice. Sometimes tear jerking. The rest is slow paced.

13 Yu-Gi-Oh! GX

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX

180 episodes

14 The Prince of Tennis

The Prince of Tennis

178 episodes (+13 episodes from Shin Prince of Tennis)

16 Black Clover

Black Clover

157+ episodes

17 Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's

Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's

154 episodes

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

18 JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (2012)

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (2012)

4 seasons, 152 episodes 

Didn’t like the first season, but liked the 3rd. Diamond is Unbreakable is the best arc, in terms of character design, plot and production.

19 Zatch Bell!

Zatch Bell!

150 episodes

20 Hunter x Hunter (2011)

Hunter x Hunter (2011)

148 episodes

21 Hajime no Ippo: The Fighting!

Superb throughout.

22 Yu Yu Hakusho

Yu Yu Hakusho

112 episodes

23 Legend of the Galactic Heroes

Legend of the Galactic Heroes

110 episodes 

Heavy on narratives, but the production value is top notch.

24 Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online

4 series, 108 episodes (SAO, SAO2, Gungale online, Alicization)

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

25 D.Gray-man


103 episodes (+13 episodes from D.gray-man Hallow)

I liked the protagonist. 

26 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.

27 Mobile Suit Gundam SEED

Mobile Suit Gundam SEED

2 seasons, 100 episodes.

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

28 Space Brothers

Space Brothers

99 episodes 

I thought it was very wholesome and worth watching.

29 My Hero Academia

My Hero Academia

4 seasons, 88 episodes 

30 Bakemonogatari


7 seasons, 88 episodes (excluding web aired stories)

Couldn’t keep up with all that narrative and talking...wasn’t my kind of thing.



3 seasons, 75 episodes

32 Bakuman.


3 seasons, 75 episodes

Quite entertaining. 

33 Kuroko's Basketball

Kuroko's Basketball

3 seasons, 75 episodes 

Adrenaline-rushing. I’ve never played basketball but this show made the sport look very interesting.

34 Chihayafuru


3 seasons, 75 episodes 

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

35 A Certain Magical Index

A Certain Magical Index

3 seasons, 74 episodes 

36 Monster


74 episodes 

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

37 Natsume's Book of Friends

Natsume's Book of Friends

6 seasons, 74 episodes

Heartwarming. Zoku is the best season.

38 Food Wars! Shokugeki no Souma

42 Shakugan no Shana

Shakugan no Shana

43 The Seven Deadly Sins

The Seven Deadly Sins

Sort of entertaining until all seven protagonists are introduced. The Ban-Elaine arc is cute. 

44 Yakitate!! Japan

Yakitate!! Japan

69 episodes 

Funny, but borderline boring.

45 Shaman King

Shaman King

64 episodes 

I liked the characters and their powers. Looking forward to seeing the remake which is due to be aired later this year.

Interesting first season, but it became less entertaining every season.

Attack on Titan

3 seasons, 59 episodes, 4th season currently airing.

Suffers from pacing issues. The plot is gory and interesting.
