When you're out of ideas, you stop irregaurdless of the series's continued popularity. If people could actually do that, there'd be far more classic tv shows but now all one can remember is the mediocre nonesense a show pulls after jumping the shark and slowly killing the show's popularity.
Just a random rant, applies to all forms of tv series, but most especially anime.
Onepiece is they're almost at 250 episodes and its still going strong, infact the show just gets better and better as time passes.

In anime the perfect number is 26. Sooooo many series's have exactly 26 episodes. For me anything past that gets to be too much. I cant stand having to sit through SOOO many episodes just to have conclusion to the story.

One Piece hasn't slowed down. But they did a much better job of managing filler arcs then Naruto or Bleach have.

that's because they release 40 episodes a year instead of 50 like most other series.

thats cause 26 episodes is one season worth of episodes

thats why most other series usually have 52 episodes when they have 2 seasons or a little less. like gundam series have usually 49 episodes

the manga is pretty good, I like it better than the anime, they just get right to the point with no annoying filler or any crap like that, I love goku's seiyuu though so I guess it kind of evens out for me in the end.

I love the art style of DB. All the children in the original series are fat little runts.

If the current progression of events is true, hell no.

They won't even be at soifon vs. Yoruichi at 52.

Saw Naruto for the first time yesterday on Cartoon Network. I thought it was going to suck, but it turned out to be pretty awesome. Hopefully they release onto DVD so I can buy them.

they just cut out the kiss on Naruto, now I never have seen the anime so dunno if they show it on there but in the manga they show the KISS, I mean they make sure you know they kissed but they didnt show it....

they were showing sakura standing there with a kissing noise going on, looked like the sakura standing there was extended too long to me...

I spit on ye DUB
