I liked long series until recently...the longer the better.

Like DBZ or Rurouni Kenshin when I was a kid and Naruto and Bleach...
But after, like, 90+ eps, the fillers started getting boring...

Now I prefer short series at just around 20-30 and sometimes 30-40 if it's really good

I can't really say anything about manga though, since I only have volume33
of Bleach that someone gave me as a gift (in kanji which I can't read!)
and 10 chapters of Shippuuden I read online...

So, what's your opinion? Do you like 'em short or long? ^_^

depend on the plot when it drags on and on with the same stupid theme, thats bad and annoys the hell out of me

normally 50 eps is the max for me

I feel that 13 eps is a bit too short

I'll go with the short ones.
Long series takes so much space in my HD...
And my CD/DVD-ROM are broken. Hmph.

24-26 episodes +ova past that the series starts getting stupid and shorter than that you just don't feel like everything is resolved.

I like a medium really...not too short and defintely not too long...I mean a good number would be around a hundred...some that are close or over 250 are just too much because I have a real short attention span so it's hard for me to watch anime that long, I do enjoy watching them and all then all of a sudden I just get bored of them

Usually, I like long series. But it gets annoying fillers start in the long series, like Bleach. I loved it until the fillers. D: I still like it a lot, and I'm reading the series over in manga form, but when it comes to the filler part... my Bleach love will die. DX

And yes, I've always hated how some animes end at 13 episodes. It's so short that it's easy to finish it in two days... or even less than one. xD

Moderate size animes are great too, like Fullmetal Alchemist (51 eps) or Blood+ (50 eps). I usually don't watch animes with that length, because I can't find many at that length. xD Or maybe it's just because I don't watch enough. Oh well, will I ever know? ^^;

I like it short and sweet. But I'll watch longer animes if I think they're worth watching.

I don't care if it's a short or long series, as long as it has a good story. When a series just goes on forever, I lose interest, plus it starts to feel like the story isn't going anywhere.

Well I always prefer short series like School Days and Vampire Knight (10-20 episodes) but I also watch longer series if the story plot is nice and the characters were very cute...
As for now my favorite short anime series is School Days and the longer series Prince of Tennis (170+ episodes)..

i like short animes... till 26 is fine but if the story is interesting, i can go on till 50 or up... hate it when they do a lot of recap just to make the series long...

Both, but mostly when the story is longer its expensiver too!

Depends whether or not its good, I don't usually get past the first episode or two if I find it boring, even if it does get better later on -_-

It all depends on the story and whether it's interesting (Naruto is a different matter, it wastes 20 minutes of the day and is sometimes interesting), generally the animes I'm watching are those really long ones where you have to be frozen to see what happens at the end *cough*D.gray-man*cough*

So basically I go for the story and not the length of the series... though some short series are just feels unfinished, like Zombie-loan... I think the manga is still running though :S I'll check later.

I like anime which follow the original manga, so their length depends on it. In general, I like short series the most, because I hate fillers and cause I like short menga series the most... The best are series which stop when the manga comes to a certain point and start again when there's more material (for example, xxxHolic)

No matter where we go, it's just battles, battles, battles... I get it already, that humans are stupid.

Longer anime episodes are better. Good animes are worth watching long!
Such as the highly plotted story of Inuyasha, I still hope there will be a continuation after ep167 and even movies. And the zodiac story of Fruits Basket, I still hope they can continue the anime till all 12animals have been introduced.

I prefer short series cause the story is fast.The onl dawback in short series is that sometimes you'll gonna think that it's not over yet,you might sometimes wanted that it should be a bit longer,some series does not floww thoroughtly to you(you might not understand some parts there).Sometimes there are good long series too cause of the good plot but I do'nt want it TOO LONG LIKE A HUNDRED OR MORE EPISODES I can't take it.

I prefered short series around 24 eps. But I can still hold up until 52 eps.
Beyond that.....its become boring. Just like KRR or Naruto.

Cancel

in Principle, I always like it to be long as it got more opportunity to explain more and give us more lasting feeling of the series. I'll say at least 50 episodes for every series will be good (26 the bare minimum). As long as the story progress well not like those that develop too much to the point that you hardly can correlate with the beginning of the story (eg DBZ)

It depends on how good the series is, but i normally prefer longer ones or at least 20+ episodes.

13 to 26 is good. Depends on the series, some fit perfectly in 13 eps, others wouldn't get resolved in that short time. I guess that shows that the story itself is the most important thing. More than 40 is usually too long.
