Guinness World Record for Most Characters goes to Anpanman

(Last Updated On: July 17, 2009)

The children’s anime Soreike Anpanman is now the holder of Guinness World Record for the highest number of characters in an anime franchise.

Quoted from ANN:

As of March 27, 1,768 characters have appeared in the first 980 episodes of the Soreike! Anpanman superhero comedy television series and the first 20 Anpanman films. The producers actually submitted a world record application for over 2,000 characters in May, but some “characters” such as the Pan Kōjō (Bread Mill) and Baikin Shiro were disregarded by Guinness.
