Imo the anime team generally fails to make good use of opportunities to create quality filler, so it wouldn't surprise me if non of the off-paneled fights of the manga will appear in the anime.
So no fillers so far, good. Though I'm willing to see fillers of some fights, most on Chouji's unit and Kakashi's unit against the Swordsman.
July 05, 2012 – Naruto Shippuden Episode 269: The Taboo Word
July 19, 2012 – Naruto Shippuden Episode 270: Golden Bonds
July 26, 2012 – Naruto Shippuden Episode 271: Road to Sakura
Road to Sakura? Is that a filler?
So, the next episode already has Darui defeating the Kin/Gin brothers? Nice.
After that it's probably Naruto getting out of the hideout? And then the fake Neji and the guy with the letter for Sakura?
I think road to sakura is a filler. That fake letter part is not supposed to come now as we have Hanzou Vs Mifune, ChoujInoShika vs Asuma, Naruto leaving training ground before that.
I hope the anime will show what's not been show in the manga,especially the fight against the swordsmen. imo,those (useful) fillers will be shown before the night's arrival,because they should wait for the manga to show what tobi meant by saying "stealing a substitute" and what he did during the kin-gin (whether he adjusted his pain-jins or did something on the kin-gin.
