List of anime series by episode count

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of anime series by episode count, with television series of at least 145 episodes, and OVA series of at least 20 episodes.

Televised series

This is a list of anime television series by episode count for series with a minimum of 145 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 practice of naming seasons under their own separate title instead of by cours (e.g. K-On! vs K-On!! etc.) This article will only cover series without distinct season names.

As of April 1, 2018.
