Top 10 Anime That Have More Than 100 Episodes
by Daichi on Jul 03, 2022
New generation animes are famous for their anime production with one or two seasons, which is quite nice. However, there are times when you just want to lose yourself in a long anime and follow through hundreds of episodes.
While One Piece is unquestionably one of the best long-running anime, it's not the only one – let's take a look at a few of the best. You can never go wrong with these classics!
10. Sailor moon (200 Episodes)
If you haven't heard of Sailor Moon, you've most likely been living under a rock for ages. This anime defines the "magical girl" genre and has had an unparalleled cultural impact inside and outside Japan.
Sailor Moon tells us the story of Tsukino Usagi, a typical high school student. Her life is turned upside down when she meets Luna, a talking cat – She becomes a planetary guardian with the power to protect the Earth.
9. Fairy Tail (328 Episodes)
For some reason, this show is not as popular as the rest on this list, but it's worth checking out. It's an underrated gem!
The plot centers around Fairy Tail, a renowned magical wizard guild. We follow this group of young wizards as they travel around battling bad guys and getting stronger. Then there's the protagonist Natsu Dragneel looking for his father, who is a dragon.
8. Inuyasha (193 Episode)
It's safe to say that Inuyasha was a forerunner in the isekai subgenre. Even though the term "isekai" was not widely used at the time.
Inuyasha tells the story of Kagome, a modern-day Japanese schoolgirl who is transported back in time to medieval Japan. There, she learns she's the reincarnation of a deceased priestess and is tasked with assisting a half-demon (Inuyasha) in recovering the pieces of an ultimate power jewel and fighting the evil demon Naraku.
7. Dragon ball Series
At this point, I can't even be bothered to count how many episodes each Dragon Ball series has. Particularly given that Dragon Ball Z alone meets the requirement with 291 episodes.
The Dragon Ball series has been an adventurous series for as long as I can recall. We follow Goku and his companions on a never-ending ride of action. It's on an entirely different level!
6. Black Clover (170 Episodes)
Black Clover is undoubtedly one of the finest magic series out there. The plot revolves around Yuno and Asta, two orphans who were abandoned in a chapel on the outskirts of the Clover Kingdom.
They grew up as rivals, and both aspire to become the Wizard King, a title bestowed to the Clover Kingdom's most powerful mage.
In a world where magic is everything, Asta was born without magic. Yuno, on the other hand, is a talented magician with incredible abilities. Now we follow them on a quest to find who becomes the wizard king while saving the kingdom.
There is no better time to catch up on the 170 episodes of this series than while it is now on hiatus before season 5 starts to air.
5. Gintama (367 Episodes)
Even if you haven't watched this anime, you've probably heard of it or seen a meme about it. You can never go wrong with Gintama if you're looking for a good laugh.
Gintama tells the story of Sakata Gintoki, a samurai in a time when aliens had taken over, and samurai were thought useless. That's about as deep of a story as this anime would get, but you probably won't care, given how hilarious this anime is.
The characters are humorous, the circumstances they find themselves in are absurd, and all the references to other anime and manga only serve to make it all the more enjoyable.
Gintama is, without a doubt, a masterpiece!
4. Hunter x Hunter (148 Episodes)
Hunter x Hunter first aired in 1999 through 2001 with just 62 episodes. Then, from 2011 through 2014, a second adaptation with more than 140 episodes was made.
Since then, the show has been on hiatus, leaving fans hanging. Not until recently did we get the news that season 7 is now in production.
Hunter x Hunter is one of the best adventure series out there – We follow young Gon Freecs on an adventurous quest to find his dad, Ging. It started simple, till it isn't as we get introduced to new characters.
Even though Gon eventually found his father by the end of season 6, the overall plot didn't feel like it had a satisfying conclusion. Fans eagerly anticipate the release of season 7, so they can embark on yet another fantastic adventure with Gon and his fellow hunters.
3. Bleach (366 Episodes)
Another member of the big three! Fans of Naruto and Bleach have been at odds for a very long time over which is superior. Personally, I can't choose as I love them both equally.
Maybe all you need is a series about swords, soul reapers, and a sweet 90s nostalgia.
Bleach follows the adventures of Ichigo Kurosaki, a hotheaded teenager who can see ghosts. He becomes a Soul Reaper, dedicating his life to protecting the innocent and helping the tortured spirits themselves find peace.
There has never been a better time to watch Bleach now that the final arc has been announced.
2. Naruto + Shippuden (720 Episodes)
Suppose you ask ten anime fans for their favorite anime. There's a good possibility that 70% will say Naruto – Which demonstrates how unique and popular this series is despite its drawn-out episodes.
Naruto is one of the Big Three that has held the shounen genre from way back – It tells the story of Naruto, a young ninja who grows up as a misfit orphan but dreams of becoming the leader (Hokage) of his village.
Naruto features Superb fight sequences, compelling characters, a deep plot, a remarkable power system, gripping drama, and life-changing lessons. Even though there are fillers in between, the ride is much fun!
1. One Piece (1000+ & Counting)
One Piece is unquestionably the best long-running anime, with over 1000+ episodes.
One Piece tells the narrative of pirates sailing the mysterious seas, with powerful foes and even more powerful protagonists searching for a treasure known as "One Piece." We join Luffy and his Straw-hat Pirate crew on their epic quest to find the One Piece and become the next pirate king.
The number of episodes or the first few animations shouldn't prevent you from appreciating Oda's incredible masterwork; instead, keep your heart open. You'll eventually understand what all the buzz is about!
