This is a list of anime series by episode count. Minimum count for each section is listed above each table.

Television[edit]

This is a list of anime television series by episode count for series with a minimum of 100 episodes. Note that anime franchises with multiple television series (e.g. Sailor Moon) will not be listed on this page. However anime in Japan has a somewhat misleading practice of naming seasons as if they are NOT a part of the original series. e.g. Sailor Moon etc. This article will only cover series without distinct arc/season names.
