     In the shows summary the status is listed as ended and that it premiered
    in 2004. Do you know what channel this show originally premiered on?

      I did'nt understand your first question. When you asked " it was planned to be this long right?",
    did you mean the number of episodes or how long the show has been airing on this station?
    That's what I was trying to ask.

    the number of episodes. Either the show was cancelled early on, or it was planned to be a short "mini" series, thats what i'm trying to find out.

      All of the sites I've been on say that all 26 episodes will be aired. They are currently on episode 17.

    To answer both questions:

    The anime series was planned to be two seasons long before it began airing. Two seasons in Japan is approximately 26 episodes (13 episodes per season tends to be the standard). Thus, the answer to your question is “yes”. The series was planned to be 26 episodes long. After all, it was adopted from a movie, so to get to 26 they had to add a lot of story. Anymore, and it would have dragged out too much and wouldn’t have been nearly as good – IMO.

    The show aired on Japanese television from June 12, 2004 to December 25, 2004. It aired on both Animax and SkyPerfecTV (Japanese TV stations).

    In the U.S. it is airing on IFC and Animania HD. The reason why the show summary and the rest of the guide use the Japanese airing info, is because not everyone gets IFC, and even less people get Animania HD.

    This is the info for the U.S. IFC airing. Episode 17 is slated to air this Saturday (July 22) at 10:30. Likewise, episode 18 airs next Saturday (and so on). A schedule for the next 30 days of Samurai 7 (on IFC) can be found here.
