List of anime series by episode count

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of anime series by episode count, with television series of at least 150 episodes, and OVA series of at least 20 episodes.

Televised series[edit]

This is a list of anime television series by episode count for series with a minimum of 150 episodes. Note that anime franchises with multiple television series (e.g. Pretty Cure) 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.
