* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' only lasted 26 episodes, but is nevertheless one of the most iconic animes ever. It's telling that people were treating the SuperRobotGenre like it [[GenreKiller had been deconstructed to death]] and creating [[GenreThrowback nostalgia-laden throwbacks]] to it like ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'' as little as a ''year'' after ''Evangelion''.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' may have lasted 12 episodes, 2 {{compilation movie}}s, and a [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion sequel film]], but to most anime fans ([[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff especially in the West]]), it is one of the most memorable (still ''very'' popular up to this day) and successful anime of all time, probably due to it being a DarkerAndEdgier [[{{Deconstruction}} take]] on the {{Magical Girl}} genre, the [[RuleOfSymbolism complex]] [[MindScrew plot]], the memorable characters, and the fantastic [[Music/YukiKajiura soundtrack]]. It also turned Creator/StudioShaft and Creator/GenUrobuchi into {{Household Names}} among anime fans.
* Manga/AzumangaDaioh had only four volumes, and the anime adaptation had only 26 episodes. It's still considered a classic, with it being well known for influencing the SliceOfLife and {{Moe}} genres.

** ''Series/UltraQ'', even moreso. This was the series from which ''Ultraman'' '''[[MorePopularSpinoff spun off from]]'''. Thus, it was an even bigger influence on Japanese popular culture due to its massive success when it debuted in 1966. Yet it only ran for 27 episodes (with a MissingEpisode later being released on DVD) in the span of half a year.

* Music/JoyDivision only released two albums (''Music/UnknownPleasures'' and ''Music/{{Closer}}'') from 1976 to 1980, owing to the AuthorExistenceFailure of lead singer Ian Curtis (who was DrivenToSuicide at 23), but they are the first thing everyone thinks of when they hear the term PostPunk, in addition to helping lay the groundwork for what would become GothRock. If Music/TheDoors did not influence them, usually Joy Division did. Subverted, however, when the remaining members regrouped as the synthpop-driven Music/NewOrder.
