Is there a literal translation of isashiburi?
I have heard it used often in anime's and it seems to
translate roughly to, "It's been a while," or "Long time
no see."

I guess you mean "hisashiburi" (久しぶり) and your translation are right.
But the time doesn't need to be "that long".
E.g.: If a student of a weekly course skips one class, the "greeting" hisashiburi could be used as well.
