"Hunter x Hunter" should be disqualified from that list for having half its run consist of hiatuses.

Berserk goes on hiatus a lot but qualified. However, Bastard! did not make the list despite being still irregularly published.

Is Bastard! even still a thing? I know it was popular back in the early 90's but after that it kinda fizzled out.

Exactly. It finished in 2018. This article is as of 2018 and only goes by years, not months or number of chapters published.

No Guyver on the list and that has been running since 1985.

Awesome. We really need a new Locke the Superman anime, this time as a full series.

Yeah, I thought that has always remained popular there. Guyver was one of my gateway anime too. I'm curious if it'll be revisited again like it was in 2005.

I logged in to say the same and since you beat me to it I agree. Locke the Superman needs a never ending anime just like the Manga.

The movies are good but I would love a Lock the Superman anime.

most of the series on this list have some sort of hiatus. I don think they mean running continually. Eroica had a hiatus from 89-95 and was then update erratically until 2007. Then restarted in 2009, and ended again in 2012 unless I'm mistaken.
