Thoughts on stories over 100 episodes?


#1

Do you feel these types of story are too long or too drawn out?
Do you like to read long stories?


#2

For me 50 is really the maximum, and then I really have to love the story if I want to finish it.
Most of the long stories get boring, and they keep repeating themselves…


#3

It depends for me on stories length cause there are some like Dripping Mascara which are written, directed and the plot is doing in a way that I keep wanting more & it was 130 episodes.


#4

Yes! I feel like Dripping Mascara is sooooo dragged out and soooooo long too. (Please don’t hate me, I do like Dripping Mascara and Gen…)


#5

Hahaha no way I could hate you for disagreeing but fair enough.
I do think that story did it well tho.
Love in Sanders Bloom is another one with over a 100 episodes I enjoy but I understand that with only a certain number of passes , those stories can take forever.


#6

Yea, I feel if an author has over 50 episodes they should try to make a season end or something and then continue with a new story, like Wiktoria’s “blake” series


#7

Yes or Chain Reaction has continued with around 50 episodes through 3 stories & now created “Its Just An Illusion” which goes with it as well .


#8

It depends on the story. Some of the best stories are real long because it takes that long to develop a character.


#9

If I start reading a story when it’s only got like 20 chapters, then it gets weekly updates until it gets to over 100 then I get really sad when it finishes like with Dripping Mascara


#10

Agreed that’s how I feel about Dripping Mascara too and why I love long stories. You attach yourselves to characters for possibly years sometimes and it makes them feel like family. That’s why I like long stories on episode :slight_smile:


#11

Agreed & if the plot is good & people are asking for more. I don’t see the problem?
