Naruto Filler Arcs 【Episode Guide】 | Anime Filler List

by admin

This anime series is very famous because of its unique content. It has 720 episodes which are one of the greatest achievements as it took 15 years to complete. There are various fillers, manga, and canon in this series. In this article, I will share Naruto filler arc episodes for your ease. Almost 45% of fillers are there.

All the fillers episodes are very decent and sophisticated. They had some lessons and meaning in every episode. This is the main thing that made viewers watch this. It has a great fan base because of its excellent writing.

Which episodes to skip in Naruto Shippuden?

As there are so many fillers to watch. There are few filters that are not very important to watch.
They only spoil the plot and waste your time. I have mentioned a few episodes which you can skip as they are the least important and can save your time.

  • The Whole Second Half Of The Original Series
  • The Infinite Tsukuyomi Stories
  • Three-Tails Appearance
  • Paradise Life On A Boat
  • The Power Arc

Naruto Filler Arcs Episodes:


Manga Canon Episodes:


The Whole Second Half Of The Original Series Needs to be skipped:

This has 17 smaller arcs that if you combine are 2 years. So according to me, 2 years are worthless and pointless. Watching this episode will surely give you a headache. The story is based upon cartoons that are like a daily soap.
Every week it introduces a new villain with a typical senseless theme and storyline. So, there’s no need to watch this episode and waste your precious time.

Kakashi: Shadow Of The ANBU Black Ops:

In this episode, you will see all the side characters and backstories.
Fans will get to have a look at past incidents in a flashback.
This arc proves how perfect anime’s author can be when it comes to creating authentic and original Naruto series.

The New Chunin Exam Arc

This arc is famous for its fabulous writing. It covers all the gaps between incidents and scenes. The story is based upon the second chunin exams. This episode has a drawback that few people skip it, that’s because it is in the middle of War Arc.
Both the stories are overlapped and create confusion at times.

Six-Tails Unleashed:

This series is a bit off track but no matter what but it proves its amazing animation. It has altogether 8 episodes. The story revolves around the relationship between a master and his students.

The Power Arc:

If you are watching the entire series then skipping any of the filler is not your thing. It has a total of 500 episodes. In the sixth episode, you will get to see the power arc which further follows a fully composed team.
Later, Kakashi investigates recent attacks on the village nearby. In a few episodes, there is suspense which can further lead to spoiling the episode.

Paradise Life On A Boat:
His arc has only one episode. The story is based upon three characters Yamato, Guy, and Naruto. All three go on a journey towards the land of lighting to get trained with killer bees. It is okay if you skip it you will miss nothing important from the series.
If you are loving or humorous only then watch it. You will find hidden comedy and few dumb characters.

Three-Tails Appearance:

This episode has 2 arcs. You can skip it. The story revolves around a few characters as they are trying to track three trailed beats. There is a little bit of manga in this story. Because of a bit of manga, the story gets spoils and there’s no need to watch it.
There is only one part that is interesting is that Naruto gets to use amazing ninjutsu that no one has ever seen in the entire series.

The Infinite Tsukuyomi Stories:

This arc gives the perfect example of stories that are not very important. This arc contains all the side characters which are only 2 liners. This shows that watching the entire episode will waste your time and nothing else. In this, you will see all the ifs and buts. This story is not less than confusing.
The audience is watching all the episodes and suddenly when they see this episode they stop watching it. So my suggestion is to skip this and enjoy your series.
