If you’re like me, you have a hard time dropping out of something; even if it isn’t that good, you need to know how it ends. Or you’re the flip side: once you get started on something good you eat and breathe it until it’s gone and can’t focus on anything until you finish.
That’s why it’s nice to know ahead of time what you’re getting into. That way when those pesky cliffhangers rear their head and turn your planned two episodes into a binge of two seasons, you don’t lose your job because of it.
Because season lengths vary anywhere between a 10 episode single cour to a 26 episode double-cour with five OVA episodes, I will be listing entries by number of episodes rather than seasons. Order is shortest to longest, starting with movies, then short episode series, then normal episode length series.
