Long animes or short?

I find the ones that I like the most usually have 12-13 episodes total, though sometimes 24-26 episodes works as well. I would rather have one solid story with a proper ending, and the longer it is, the more likely it ends up having more or less pointless arcs in the middle. They can still be enjoyable, but that is not enough for me to call them good.
long are fine if it's shonen type anime done right, i.e. make the pacing not so dreadfully slow that something relevant actually happens every episode and ease up on the fillers

otherwise i prefer short, 10-15

20-50 is always that range where it doesn't have that shonen formula which keeps you coming back for the next episode so unless it's very damn good i'll be uninterested after a short season's worth of watching
Hmm, I definitely prefer short animes over long ones.
10 - 30 episodes is the best in my opinion :3
Since most of the animes I watch are mystery / horror or things like that, they fall in that category almost everytime, so yea.
I wouldn't mind watching something longer though o: If I have the time and it's really interesting....

I hate endless animes though... I think you can only watch these if you started watching it from the beginning when it came out, but when I'd think of watching 500 episodes of something that all lies before me I would get crazy :D

Also, pupa (12 x 5 minutes? or something like that) was too short.
If it is good i dont mind how long it is.
Long. If I get into something, I literally want it to last forever. People might say, well then you'll just get a bunch of crap filler and a never ending story... but that's exactly what I want. I might be one of the few people who just enjoy watching stuff just to relax. Besides, I get to see more of my favorite characters this way. And yes, I don't get tired of formulas being reused over and over. :3

When a show ends, I'm really all like.. well that's it? Well that sucks.

Really though, I don't mind anime taking their time to finish. Like Pokémon for example. I know for a fact that I have something to watch every week and look forward to, foreverrrrrr.
I don't mind the length at all, it can be from 11-653, but as long as the story is good and there isn't any retarded filler (A certain scientific railgun, episode 14-20) then I will probably watch the show. But most of the shows I watch are 12 episodes and have 0 filler episodes in them.
length isn't an issue
i like animes that around around 12-13 eps but i dont mind a 23-26 once in awhile , i've watched a few that were around 50 (the ones that i can remember are Soul Eater and Magi: the Labyrinth of Magic)
I prefer short ones, but 'medium' goes well too, if it's more than 30 episodes I can't bother to watch it.
i prefer short ones, around 10-25 episodes :)

same by me :3
12-26 episode per season. 50 is okay, but must have an unusual and good plot with good design and splitted for several season
50+ in one season. Meh. Hate them, because I'm the marathon type watcher
Same here, but I'm too obstinate to quit watching an anime :oops: That's why I choose them carefully ;p
12-25 episodes are the best, since they can be watched in one day^^ (and also the story goes on quite fast, which makes it difficult to get bored)
However, 50 episodes animes can be really great as well (code geass fan!)
(for longer animes, well, the longest I've watched is Inuyasha. The 193 episodes were worth watching but that was just too long...)
I love long animes if they are good, but would still prefer 22-26 episodes.
I like the length of ~25 Episodes, but if i really really like a series i'd like to watch more than that.
i prefer short animes that are maybe 8-15 episodes long and sometimes long animes 20-30 if its REALLY interesting.
then again if the episodes are like 1 hour long
I usually watch short animes but I'm watching some long too (and still ongoing) But I like to watch animes around 30-50 episodes long because I get bored pretty fast and watch too much anime.
When I first started watching anime I enjoyed watching long anime (like 300+) but as time passed i started watching more short anime ranging from 11-50.

But overall, I don't particularly mind about the length, enjoying it is all that matters
Meh, well, usually 12 eps per season tends to be more enjoyable as the season is over quicker -> watch another and come back to watch the second season to get some more variety.

It's true that when you have 24 episodes, the story is usually better.
Usually watch 12-24 episode shows it usually gets to the point with out ruining the pacing or draging it out much longer than needed
Short is better (like 30 parts). Cause u can meat new story and new characters :3 Just in my opinion :d
