what are some anime series that are relatively short?

two animes that i really enjoyed were soul eater(51 episodes) and death note(37 episodes).

i especially enjoyed soul eater, does anyone have any ideas for an anime series i may like?


ideal amount of episodes would be from 30-100 or so.

Update 2:

also, if anyone has any ideas, could i get a little summary or a link to one? i like to know a little bit of what it's about before i watch

Update 3:

oh and thank you so much!

Update 4:

thank you so much everyone for your suggestions!! if i knew how to get to level 2 i'd thumb you all up lol :)

    Elemental Gelade is similar to Soul Eater. The animes both contain weapon/people that have a special relationship with their handlers.


    Code Geass is similar to Death Note. They both involve very intelligent main characters who use strategy to defeat their opponents.

    ahh well the shortest one i know of is "5 centimeters per second" it's only 3 episodes long and made both me and my boyfriend cry.

    1) D.N.Angel - i think had less than 30. { is about a boy who turns into "Dark the phantom Theif" when he sees the girl he likes and the only way to change back is to go steal a certain thing.]

    2) Black Butler - anime is ...... special. watch in japanese. english wil make your ears bleed. i'd suggest reading it too if you get the chance. [ is based in england ahh this little boy makes a deal with his "butler" to get revenge. the anime has angels the manga has zombies.]

    3) Wolf's Rain - dunno quite how long it was but it was half over at 28 ish is what my friend told me. [ Wolves are "extinct" and a small pack of them tries to find a flower to lead them to paradise.]

    4) Black Cat - - only had like 30 episodes i think. [ An assasin turns on his job after meeting a girl and becomes a bounty hunter that doesn't kill while fighting the organization he left to stay alive.]

    5) Hetalia - there are like 105 of them total but each episode is 5 minutes long. [ Countries are brought to life as people and it shows history of the world wars and etc. this is the only reason i passed my history this year >.>' ]

    6) MAR (Marchen Awakens Romance) - not very long. cute off. you have to read the manga to find out the end. [ A boy gets transported to his Dream world and must fight the evil Chess (basically the akastuki rip off >.>') to get back home and save his dream world.]

    I dunno if any of the rest of the ones i've watched are short.. everything seems short compared to Naruto these days...

    FLCL is only like 8 episodes long and worth taking a look at it even if its a bit weird, but personally i like trigun, it's only like 60 episodes... not really sure but it's really enjoyable with a great soundtrack behind it

    What's your definition of short? There have been anime series that have been 1 episode total and ones over 6,000 episodes total.
