So, has there been any word on how long these stupid filler episodes are going to last? Are we looking at another full season of this? At least this time they've tossed in a couple of pertinent story pieces, but of the last 7 episodes, it's maybe covered 1 manga chapter.
Let's get the new arc started already! What's the hold up? The manga is a solid 2 years ahead!

I would usually go to Wikipedia to see the upcoming ep`s for the next couple weeks or month but there has not been any updates so far on the website. Hopefully the fillers end soon its been close to 2 months of fillers.

actually, this is the first filler in shippuden. Apparently there is no good place to stop the next arc so they are being certain it will be finished before the story starts catching up.

Wasn't the whole Yukimaru thing and the crystals chick arc a filler. It was from episode 90 to 112. It it wasn't filler then it was very disconnected from the main story.

I can handle the occasional filler story arc... but if I wanted to watch the original Naruto, I'd just watch the original Naruto... There are over 220 episodes of that to choose from. I think what bothers me most about this right now is there is no opportunity for a story climax... it's a series of flashbacks and reminiscing without building up to anything. Just give me some STORY... background is fine, give it a purpose!
Better yet, give us some filler episodes that fill the gap between the old series and Shippuuden. I'd watch the heck out of that. And it gives them a 2 1/2 year space to work with that doesn't conflict with the current storyline.
I'm just saying... make it fun.

Oh the damn past stories were flashed back. Its smart for it to mix the main story with past story as a filler to delay time although I really hate to admit. I'm looking forward to the next Akatsuki and Taka's battle!

I suppose we'll all survive... so long as it isn't over 30 episodes long, like the last Bleach filler arc. That was brutal to put up with. Especially with how they just tossed it in between 2 big, linked, battles.

Don't be so swift to be impatient. First, remember that we HAVE to have filler at some point, or the option of it going off air as was experimentally chosen for Reborn.

So, imagine that filler is tossed aside altogether because of how much buffer there is. That means we get main story untril we catch up to the manga. Well, that means we WILL catch up to the manga. What then? There is no buffer left. Then our options become to have a filler every other episode, or a super long filler that is pretty uncontrolled. Is that a better situation to you?

Essentially it is unavoidable. If they try to comply with your complaints, we'll have bigger problems.

It will last till at least ep 188 (187-188 is a 1h special), if not longer.

Fillers are more enjoyable than the actual story.

They could have given the timeslot for another anime series, the typical 20 odd episode series. It gives chance for other anime titles to gain recognition while indirectly boosting fan's anticipation for the next arc for naruto. Adding fillers only piss off people who want to watch the pure anime storyline. Yes manga is there for them to see the story but then why doesn't manga need to go for fillers when people can just read the book 1 day after releases, and they aren't gonna make filler manga books to give the artist time to plan for story? Fillers aren't exactly free either since they had to pay for the timeslot, get artists to draw the entire junk of 20 plus mins, and get the VAs to dub the show.

If anyone remembered the first naruto, the story ended at 135 odd episodes, yet the naruto series itself ends at around 225. Its a whole 90 episode fillers, repeated the same nonsensical crap like naruto know how the 'filler main' feels because his lonely and crap. Yes i am fine with watching him repeat that ridiculously overused line once in awhile but not for a bloody chain of near 90 episodes. I wouldn't even mind a more kiddy show like pokemon, sorry no offense to pokemon fans, to take its place while naruto artist can take his one thousand and one years to plan whatever story he wants.

Again, not saying "don't give us filler arcs." Just saying lets make them relevant and fun. Filling in the blanks on the tailed beasts being captured was good. Let's fill in some other gaps in the overall story with the next group of filler episodes.
