Top 10 Anime Series With Highest Number Of Episodes

Pretty Cure

Launched in 2004 and currently airing its 17th season, Pretty Cure presents the magical girl formula in its purest form.

Chibi Maruko-Chan

With over a thousand episodes, Chibi Maruko-chan clearly struck a chord with Japanese audiences.

Detective Conan

Detective Conan is fast approaching its 1000th episode mark, and the anime doesn't look like it's going to slow down anytime soon.

Dragon Ball

At its best, Dragon Ball comfortably ranks among the greatest battle shonen series ever.


In the years since its completion, Naruto has seen its stock decline somewhat.

One Piece

The One Piece anime is nowhere near as good as the Eiichiro Oda manga.

Crayon Shin-chan

Only a fraction of Crayon Shin-chan's stories have received an English dub, but this shoddy comedy has aired for nearly three decades.


Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motu Abiko's manga has spawned over 2000 anime episodes, and Doraemon is still on the air.


Ash may not be the best no one has ever done, but the series has already proved to be one of the most enduring of its time.

Ninja Boy Rantaro

For a series focused on preserving young ninjas, there's a surprising lack of high-stakes action here.
