Default Do you think NS has too many fillers?

Title says it all. personally I think there are too many, A few wouldnt matter, but when an entire episode is a filler it kind of sucks.

Eh, It's got about as many fillers as Bleach, or DBZ. I can only count 2 or 3 major Fillers that are about 10-20 episodes, I'm discounting the various Gaidens as there part off the back-story and arn't technically starting an irrevilant arc that doesn't affect the main plot.

The Only filler I didn't like so far was the Tailed Gaiden before the Pein invasion arc; The rest are alright to watch.

Well the four season long fillers in original series were more fillers than all of the separate ones in NS combined

It all depends if you prefer them to all be together in a 2 year long thing or for them to be spread out like in NS

Default Re: Do you think NS has too many fillers?

I think the issue is more that the choice of storyline for the fillers generally sucks . Like the current Iruka fillers: How many times do I need to see the same scenes from Naruto's past; it's ridiculous.


But instead of just complaining, here's an example for what they should've done for a filler at this point of the anime:

Instead of basically reshowing Naruto's childhood AGAIN, they could've done like a mirror reality sort of history where Iruka DIDN'T help Naruto and Naruto becomes evil and destroys the village as an adult or something... (juxtaposing how Naruto just saved the village before the fillers started) Basically like a 'what if Naruto hated the village' storyline.

That would be awesome, has plenty of room for action, and I would watch it with interest. Why don't they think of better fillers

Default Re: Do you think NS has too many fillers?

The two filler episodes sandwiched in the Pain arc just to promote the 4th Shippuden movie were unforgivably bad but I'll just pretend those never happened. Otherwise, the filler has actually been pretty strong in terms of character development.

For example:

Spoiler:
The Sora arc really sets you up for Asuma's death, as you get to know him and his relationship with the 3rd as well as a little bit of his past. It just makes the fact that he dies even more sad. The filler with that girl Hotaru and the forbidden jutsu was cool too because it sets you up to make the Naruto-finding-about-Jiraya's-death scenes more sad as well, not to mention it makes you hate Pain a bit more. So IMO these fillers have been far more purposeful than the ones in the original Naruto which were mostly garbage.
