Do you know which is the longest running anime series? Many of you would have tried to guess. Most of you will guess some classic anime but there’s a huge probability that you are wrong.
Which Is The Longest Running Anime Series?
The longest running anime is Sazae San, which skipped the eye of most Americans.
In 1946, it debuted as a four-panel comic strip by the legendary manga artist Machiko Hasegawa. It first came out in a local newspaper called Fukunichi Shinbun. Three years later, it was continued by the Asahi Shinbun, which continued till 1974.
The Anime adaptation came out in 1969, and it has been airing on Japanese Television ever since. It airs 3 episodes of eight-minute each week.
It marked a record of 7881 episodes. Running for almost five decades, it holds the record of being the longest-running Anime and longest-running animated series of all time which seems to be unbreakable shortly. Adding another child to the crown, it also is the only anime series to hold a Guinness book of world records. It was recognized in the Guinness book of world records in 2013 for surpassing 7000+ episodes.
The television show Sazae San revolves around the daily life of a homemaker in her mid-twenties, Sazae Fuguta, and her happy family. She lives happily with her husband, her parents, her younger sibling, and a pet cat.
Though the series continues to air for five decades, it is indeed never aging and remains unchanged ever since.
The fact that many people don’t know about this, makes it even more interesting. The anime world is full of conspiracies and excitement and these shoes just level up the game.
