    The best and longest running anime is The Simpsons! Come at me bruh!
    But seriously, One Oiece should be considered higher than Naruto. Except maybe in fight choreography.

      if you want to catch upto detective conan fast use the XERBLADE episode guide from google as it cuts out all the non manga fillers in the anime. the Black org arcs are mindblowing and even the boss was recently revealed in the manga .use this as well and skip the TV originals .

      Every Man 1991 7 days ago

      @SkyMaster Albani yes I agree. Seeing Ash & Pikachu do the same thing over and over again and never winning the Pokemon league in EVERY new region does get boring.
