Even though it can be fantastic to finish an entire program in one sitting, many anime viewers seek out longer-running shows. Since some people may have spent their whole lives with these fictional characters, long-running series can make viewers feel more deeply about their characters than short-run programming.
Fans may be surprised to learn that shows like Gintama and Naruto, which have hundreds of episodes each, aren’t even close to being the longest-running anime of all time. Several shows have aired thousands of episodes and are still going strong. The most episodes of any anime series ever?
Shima Shima Tora No Shimajir (Striped Island Tiger Shimajir) – 726 Episodes
Shivaji, a preschool-targeted program, includes all the fundamental principles kids might need to learn, and each episode is lengthy for its genre. The Shimajir franchise has created more than a thousand stories overall, even though the original anime only had 726 episodes to its credit.
Early morning! 744 episodes of Clamployees (Asa Da Yo! Kaishain)
It’s Morning! is broadcast on Nippon TV Network. The 1-minute shorts in Clamployees are all about workplace culture. This series, which debuted in 2016 and ran until 2019, created a tonne of content throughout that time and even served as the model for a spin-off called Shellfish Employee, which ran for an additional 25 ONAs.
Episodes of Kotowaza House: 773
Kotowaza House, which ran from 1987 to 1994, seemed to have vanished off the face of the earth because so little is known about it. The anime, which had five-minute episodes, would employ Peter, a salaryman who served as the show’s main character, to deliver PSAs. In essence, Peter would act in a bad and unhealthy way, then learn about his bad behavior.
1006 Episodes of Sekai Monoshiri Ryoko
Sekai Monoshiri Ryok, which aired between 1971 and 1974, appears to have vanished into obscurity, with nearly little information about the series available online. Perhaps the show, which appears to have been an instructional series, has maintained a presence in Japan; nevertheless, it has never made its way into Western culture or the internet.
One Piece – 1009 Episodes
One Piece just completed its 1000th episode, an accomplishment that underscores the shonen anime’s supremacy over the last two decades. Luffy made his way to anime in 1999, a few years after the manga’s launch, and embarked on a huge voyage to build a crew, explore the boundless seas, and become the Pirate King.
Over the next 20 years or more, fans followed the Straw Hats as they expanded in number and deposed dictators, battled self-proclaimed gods, and challenged the world government.
3,000+ Episodes of 3000 Whys of Blue Cat (Lan Mao)
Lan Mao, often known as Blue Cat, is a Chinese educational television series that debuted in 1999 and is one of the longest-running children’s shows of all time. The franchise, created by Beijing Sunchime Happy Culture Company, has spawned over 400 novels, a theme park, and even Sega video games.
2500+ Episodes of Mrs. Sazae (Sazae-San7500+ )’s Stories
The longest-running animated television programme in the world is Mrs. Sazae; The Simpsons are nothing compared to it. Only twice since its initial airing in 1969 has it needed to be repeated. Mrs. Sazae’s episodes, like Doraemon’s, are broken into separate standalone segments, each having three stories.
