Well, if you are talking about a narrator of Kyon's caliber then he/she would be useful.

the narrator in Hayate no Gotoku is there to make it funnier...
but the narrator in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is the thoughts of Kyon himself... interesting

no theyre a complete waste of time, setting aside hayate no gotokus narrator cause hes used for comedic affect rather than filling in the story. But animes lik bleach or slam dunk juz waste so much time on recapping the story wen they can be continuing it

Some Animes have narrators that make the episode funny and sometimes join in the story....

Somehow they also are useful. They say the prologue, introduce new places, faces, etc. They make confusing things more understandable; that is if the narrators' purposes are among these earlier mentioned things only and that they say things just to relate but they do not [like] interfere personally in the scenes. There really are also narrators that sound annoying, sometimes they try imitating others' voices or try hard to speak English [in a Japanese accent; that makes me like I don't know if the narrator is intentionally doing it or what... [Just like in Saint Beast, though I like the anime.]

hayate no gotoku is supposed to be like that, read the manga it is pretty crazy but hilarious.

In animes I've watched, yes. They know something that most characters don't know, and they speak of certain characters' fates in a nutshell.

I don't remember ever watching animes with narrators... .. probably because I don't pay much attention about them...well i find hearing the "main" characters speak and seeing them act more entertaining... though in other literature they are useful-... i won't talk anymore...
