Hey guys,

I see a lot of people complaining about the fillers that are crappy, but I recall a couple of things that I liked a lot and that were in the fillers.

So, here's the place to talk about the good things that the fillers gave us.

Here's a few that I can think right now :

- Shino laughing his ass off
This was priceless. Especially that Naruto is afraid and know that something is wrong. :p

- Hinata dancing (training) naked on the lake
I liked that one a lot. Especially that Hinata (the super shy girl) would go naked to train. And Naruto see her (without recognizing her)... that was nice!

- Shikamaru and his father after Asuma's death
This episode was really really good and well done. It was all centered on Shikamaru and how he reacted to Asuma's death. Really good.

... I can probably think of some more later!

What are your favorite?

I would have to say my favourite filler is when Rock Lee fights Gai in that fake training-doll mansion. That was truly amazing :) close second is when Naruto fights Lee in his dojo that he made. You all know what I'm talking about :)

Stuff like episode 82 with Shikamaru after Asuma's death isn't really filler to me. It was just parts of canon combined with added scenes to create an episode that was part of a canon arc. It filled in the blanks Kishi couldn't in the manga while sticking closely to the story. There is actually a great deal of "filler" like this in Part 1 since Kishi left gaps for the anime to fill. Temari vs Tenten, Sasuke vs. Temari, Kimimaro's backstory etc.

True filler(the bad kind) to me is something that either never occurred in the manga or the anime taking a scenario and then stretching it over a bunch of episodes. Like taking the canon idea of the Sanbi getting captured, adding a slew of new characters, and an entire fabricated storyline over 20 episodes. That's filler.

So favorite filler? I sort of like the last Part 1 filler arc with Gaara and the Sand Siblings.

I really did not like the fillers at all- they were kinda boring. Bleach's fillers were slightly better, One Piece's fillers are downright horrible, and D-Grayman's fillers are a perfect example as to how fillers should be.

Kakashi and Shikamaru vs. Kakuzu and Hidan :confetti

Episode 101 (What's under Kakashi's Mask?) :rofl

Those two were half canon though, so they sort of don't count.

and...The Laughing Shino. :rofl

All others are worthless. Well, the one with Suigetsu was cool, but only because I like Suigetsu and was happy to see more of him. That one was a little canon too though.

That one wasn't complete crap either. I sort of liked that one too I guess. :p

I thought the beginning of the "Anko's past"-filler arc was pretty good. I mean pretty much everything until they all were going FREAKIN' FISHMEN WATER TENTACLE BOSS WTF? HELL NO!

I also like that single episode, where the Genin each have to lead a team of academy students for a day. Mostly because I would love to see some of the kids again. (I hoped at that time for a Chuunin exam for Naruto, even though it's pretty certain now, that we'll never get that.)

And obviously the episode of Shikamaru mourning over Asuma.
I seriously doubt that Kishimoto could have done that one better. It's perfection from start to finish.

raiga (only because of the cury of life)

You're joking about the curry of life right? That was the worst part of the anime I think. Raiga was cool but the curry of life was horrible.

The Kakashi thing with the mask is actually canon I remember reading it in the manga, but they made a whole episode of it.

The curry of life was funny, especially when people (poor neiji) ate it.

Raiga was a huge disappointment for me.
As one of the 7 swordmen of the Mist, I expected much more from him in terms of abilities (tai, nin).
What was his goal again? giving funerals ? talk about a total joke.
He is nowhere near Zabuza or Kisame.

And they didn't even name his sword.

I only have two favorite fillers of any Naruto continuity; the first one being the Onbaa episode and the second one being the Akamaru episode. That's it, cuz any of the other fillers are boring 5-episode story arcs.

Frankly, Shippuden fillers SUCK.

oh yeah, i actually forgot about those.
i liked them also so that makes 5 fillers for me i guess:

-the one about genmo the trapper and the konoha eleven.
-the one where they search for the bikochu beatle.
-the "find out what's beneath kakashi's mask" episode!!
-the legend of onbaa ep.
-the akamaru might be infected with horrible decease episode

wow turns out i'm quite the filler lover :facepalm

laughing shino was okay, not great imo

i liked bikoucho because shino was my fave char and it showed his abilities

i also liked the explosion tag arc. i like seeing all of konoha 11.

and the crystal arc, mainly because of guren and shino

not much else, i never watched the shikamaru-asuma death episode
what episode was that? i may watch it

Hinata's waterfall and her moment of awsomeness with the Protection 64 palms, Naruto pissing on Ino was priceless, taking off Kakashi's mask and last but definately not least, episode 82 where Shikamaru mourns Asuma and then owns.

I bet your first choice considers some pretty good parts absent from the manga, probably including were Shika "debuts" his Suiton scroll. I think that's nice filler inside a canon episode. The episode's director lets us explore how Shika could get around his unique restriction form using elemental/qualitative chakra. I enjoy quality filler like that.

I also like what I call "action padding dilation" in episodes like Ep. 30: Sharingan Revived (Orochimaru challenges Team 7 to get to Sasuke) and Ep 133: Roar of Tears (You are my Friend). Bright, lively, and surreal, Naruto and Sasuke's fight at Konoha's Valley of the End arguably remains great anime. Orochimaru's debut is also generous as he confronts Sasuke remarkably better in their anime tussle versus their manga version.

Quite like a pupil expanding to let more light in your eye, action in those episodes expands or dilates so greatly and gracefully that it makes the episodes beefier, savorier, at least lets them linger longer in my mind. The director(s) of those shows possibly iron out what could be, for lack of better terms, assumptive "depth of action" issues from those episodes' native manga chapters; for one, how deep should those chapters go into action?

Manga action may be slightly thin to some of us, yet story might fit better here and there in a thin wafer of combat or war. How much violence can Kishi stuff in each of his chapters though? How much should he stuff? You might say that such action issues in Naruto's manga hardly appear or matter before you stare at their anime "solutions," as you gape at accctshun DIE-layshhhhun! (action dilation)

So far we have 2 anime exclusive filler arcs, in the Shippuuden era, I was wondering which of the fillers arc we enjoyed more, as right now, I'm watching one of them.

Fire Temple arc: Kazuma/Furido, Asuma, Furido, Naruto, etc..
Sanbi Arc: Guren, Kabuto, Yuukimaru, Rinji, Naruto, etc..

And what's with the arc of Utakata, the six-tailed Jinchuuriki? This was a filler too.

@Topic
I don't really watch fillers, I only watch the fights but I skip the story since it's totally unimportant...

There's already a thread regarding favorite fillers :
http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=49319

The Sora one was actually entertaining and it was nice to go more in depth with Asuma's story, right before he went for its last mission.

The other two fillers were pretty bad, but the Utakata one was less worst...
The Sanbi arc was far too long and cheesy...

Thanks and sorry didn't see the thread, hopefully mods will merger our topics and add a third option for the poll with the Utakata's arc. thanks.

Judging by the poll choices, I assume this is a thread for Shippuden-only fillers?

I'm not really a fan of the Shippuden fillers, tbh. The only one I can barely tolerate was the Utakata filler, because it wasn't as long as the others (8 episodes). It also has some, and I mean, some relation to the canon. You know, even if the timeline is messed up, Utakata's Biju is still extracted from him and he dies. Also, we get a little sneak peek of Pain.

Whoever created this thread should edit the poll choices to include the Part I fillers as well, since this is the "Naruto" anime thread not just "Naruto Shippuden" anime. Furthermore, it will bring up an easier discussion. It's easy to say that some of my favorite fillers in the Naruto continuity are from Part I.

My favorite filler of any Naruto series, obviously, has to be Laughing Shino. Shino really goes out of character just to complete the mission. I'm talking about how he transforms into the father who is supposedly dead and saying "inappropriate" puns just to get his adult children laughing. It also has a really good and enlightning lesson at the end: money doesn't bring happiness and laughing together as a family brings the family together. Again, I'm not a fan of filler but this one was definitely one of the better ones, imo.
