Longest anime ranking with more episodes

Ever wondered what the longest anime of all time? Anime with the most episodes? Or the biggest anime in the world? In today's article we are going to share a complete list of the longest anime and most episodes in all of history.

When talking about big anime people think of One Piece, Naruto, but there are several anime that exceed 100 to 200 episodes. Some are very old anime, others children, or some end up being divided into seasons.

This long anime list was made in November 2016, so episode numbers for some anime may change over time. If you want to know about Manga, we have already written an article talking about the longest manga in the world.

It is worth remembering that we will not put synopses, nor many details about the anime below, it is just a list with few details, if the title calls your curiosity, do a search on our website or in our Anime List kyaneko.com

Remembering that anime in production can win more episodes. Even the finished ones can win a new season. Some may not be on the list because they have different names instead of seasons.

Cuors - How anime releases work

One of the reasons our list of long anime with more episodes is not so accurate is that some anime are divided into several seasons and not all of them are on this list.

An anime is usually made and categorized according to the number of seasons of anime a year. These seasons are based on the four seasons and each anime manages to air 12 to 14 episodes per season.

When an anime shows 12 to 14 episodes and ends, we call it 1 cour, when an anime arrives between 22 and 24 episodes passing from one season to another, we call it 2 cours.

Each cour corresponds to a season or season that the anime is shown. If an anime airs on one season, and then airs again after the other season's break, it's usually called a slip cour.

Usually when taking this season break, the anime comes back as a second or next season. The anime shown by several stations without breaks can be called by the number of cours shown.
