On the same topic, i actually enjoyed the recent filler in Naruto because of how touching it was. It made me feel quite bad for Master Chen and it gave us a reminder of what Rock Lee's dreams are.


I hate fillers because regardless of how good or bad they may be, they aren't real events. As I said above, fillers are little more than official fanfiction

Extremely annoying, I usually skip them but when there are a lot of fillers... Well, I usually stop watching the anime and I often end up dropping the anime

Generally (and obviously), I'd prefer bona fide (What the hell? I'm getting spell check on bona fide/bonafide? I actually thought I had made up a word for a few seconds there. Fucking spell check throwing me into existential quandaries.) story, but I don't mind them at all, and a lot of the time they are actually a decent way to entertain yourself.

Fillers, when well written and animation, done correctly, can add depth to the characters, However, doing a filler at a crucial time in the plot line, is really aggravating.

Great way of describing it. It's not only the quality, but most importantly the timing.

Some are funny or cool but most are not.

But the worst ones are the filler arcs.

Most people hate them because they delay what everyone is looking forward to being animated. I generally dislike them because its either loaded with fanservice or the humor is lame.

If it's decent. They can be a good way to give in depth details about characters or the plot.

Sometimes, fillers are created by the original creator/author. Just getting that out there.

If they're well written, then I don't mind.

Sometimes an episode that can be described as filler can be a good breather episode, you know? And sometimes it can give a bit more information on certain characters or settings, too.

Basically, I don't mind filler as long as it's not dumb and useless.

I don't mind filler for anime's I really really enjoy, for anime's im kinda on the border about, i just don't like it. For an example of filler I hate, you look at bleach, if you're super into it, you're just going to be annoyed by the surprise filler while Ichigo is still in... wait..
