I know fillers are missions away from the actual plot, but does Naruto's first Mission with Tazuno and Zabuza count as a filler? Just wondering.

No, because fillers are really events that happen in the anime that didn't originally happen in the manga. It was the first story arc in the Manga, so no.

This may be the worst Topic i have ever seen. What in the world would make you think the Zabuza arc was filler?

LOL no, otherwise why would it be in the manga? Why on earth was this topic created?! How would Naruto be here if it were not for the Zabuza arc to introduce everything?

Nope.It was a very good arc,and it was also in the manga.Zabuza's sword takes a role in Shippudden for Suigestu.

In the manga Naruto fights Zabbuza, so no. And this is actually a good question.;)

no, it does seem not to matter a lot later on but its in the manga and part of the main stroy. I think the reason they did this arc is to explain about charkra and show what the charaters are capable of.

No I dont think so Its in the manga story line so I don't think It would be a filler arc.

Worst filler: The one about the ninja chefs. Awful.
The Zabuza saga is more painful than a filler. Whenever I re-watch Naruto, I skip it.

Cade
08-20-2009, 03:54 AM
Well it was in the manga,plus I think it changed the characters too.

Since it was in the Manga, it is not a filler.

No it's not a filler. But did you read the manga? I'm not trying to sound rude or anything, I'm just wondering.

Heck no its not a filler it was in the Manga.
Besides it was a very important arc.

Before it Team 7 was:

Sasuke-Loner,Hates Naruto
Sakura-Hates Naruto,Sasu Fangirl
Naruto-Hates Sasuke,Loves Sakura

Afterwards they started to really act like a Team.Not much but this arc helped to show Team 7 teamwork.

EG. SasuNaru Shuriken Combo first time against Zabuza.

Not only that but it also shows Kakashi in combat for the first time. And if i am correct the first showing of the sharingan in action.

Yeah theres no way that could be a filler.

i forgot to add. That arc was also Team 7's first encounter with an enemy ninja that was a jonin. It showed the difference from being a genin, chunin and jonin to everyone that watched. Basically it was one of the starting foundations of how combat was and how intensely intricate it would be in the future.

none of the episodes count as fillers!

it doesn't matter if a fiew of the episodes weren't in the manga, they aren't fillers..

its just like saying raiga isn't one of the 7 ninja swordsman.. if he supposidly isn't one of the 7, then why did they say he was in the episodes? saying otherwise just doesn't make sense to me

No, because fillers are really events that happen in the anime that didn't originally happen in the manga. It was the first story arc in the Manga, so no.
i was going to say that it wasent because the sword becoms important later but you have a beter anser

-_- If he was one of the 7 he would have been in the Manga but he didn't so thats that anything thats in the Anime but not in the Manga is a Filler.

Zabuza arc was really important in Naruto story.
And that wasnt a filler.
Filler sucks!!!

no. if the eps are in the manga, they are not filler

No. It had a purpose other than to just fill a time slot.

NOOOOOO! That was Naruto's first A Rank, and plus Zabuza was involved! It appeared in flashbacks too, fillers never did that!

Getting beyond the anime vs. manga argument, Kakashi Gaiden for example could be consider almost filler. The Land of Waves is crucial to the story.

It introduces the characters and both the important plots points. Naruto's desire to be recognized no matter what, and Sasuke's desire to kill someone.

PrinceofPeace
07-25-2012, 11:19 AM
of course NOT

Zabuza and Haku played a major role not only that but it was in the manga

it was their first REAL mission
and Naruto learned to fight for others from Haku if it was not for Haku Naruto would be LONG dead

Kakashi Hatake_Yamato
07-25-2012, 11:25 AM
Nope.

Kakashi was so awesome in this arc. First time we got to see his Sharingan.
