Depends.

Naruto fillers suck, every single one of them. They're the dumbest fillers ever. Like Lee fighting a stork.
One Piece fillers, some of them is ok to watch once. The ones where Luffy is this boss guy, those suck.
Bleach fillers, some of them were pretty good. The last filler arc was dumb.
Gintama fillers, no just kidding.
Fairy Tail fillers, they were all great.

Fillers in not longers is dumb.


There are good fillers and bad fillers; same as there are no "every single filler in this show was great" or "every single filler in this show were terrible". All of Naruto's fillers aren't "dumb" as you say. Then, it's all opinionated at this point, so whatever.

Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, the guys who did Death Note, spoke about this through one of their Bakuman characters. It's possible it was the character's point of view and not their own, but I agree with it anyway.

The idea was if you're the mangaka, and you get an anime offer, it's your job to come up with filler ideas if necessary. Just something for the studio to run with that's canonical and can add to the characters and story.

So they don't have to make up nonsensical stories that can't, by definition, effect the main plot in any way.

I realize mangakas already have a ton of things to do, but I agree with that synopsis. Either that or the show should only air seasons when they have enough base material to warrant a season, like what Fairy Tail is now doing.

I'm not sure what Naruto's plot-to-filler ratio is, but if they'd done something like only run the series (spoiler free) for half the year, I would've been down for that. And I wouldn't have quit watching... probably.

Might be a poor example, since even canonical Naruto was spread pretty thin for a long while.

It'd be nice if those guys could be working on other interesting things though, instead of wasting time making filler.

I enjoy fillers in long-running anime. They help to take it in directions different from the source material and give it a distinctive identity.

Some of them are good and some of them are bad, like the bleach fillers were just awesome while naruto fillers are boring.

I don't mind fillers.
Except in the case of anime like Naruto where the filler-main plot ratio is 1.7:1, then they just get annoying.
And when they aren't even good fillers, but just fillers to fill time for sake of filling, that's when I hate them.

I hate fillers.
But I liked excel saga, which arguably, was 99% filler.
