Fillers... So many fillers...
Posted 11/29/14
I've never really noticed filler arcs massively. I heard FMA had quite a few, but i never fully noticed that. However, recently, i've begun watching Bleach, and i just want to say this...

The Bount arc is one of the most boring fillers i have ever come across.

Seriously. As much as i've liked the series so far, the bount arc just seems to be disappointing and unmemorable. It's one of those arcs where i am looking forward to the end, because it's getting so boring... (the pacing is just awful here).

So, Which series is the biggest abuser of poorly-done fillers?

Bleach is meh. i think if they took long breaks instead of making the fillers, i might still be watching it.

While filler is mostly a bad thing, there are some good fillers that are worth watching. Bleach has some really good fillers, but they are just happening at the wrong time. The Captain Amagai and Zanpakuto Rebellion arcs are pretty good, but they are momentum breakers, while the Modsoul at least blends in with the story. The Naruto filler is just awful and at least they happen in one chunk, so those can easily be skipped. The Fairy Tail fillers are pretty good, and I haven't watched much One Piece to say how good it is. But the best filler is the original FMA. Yeah, not all filler is bad, but there are some shows that I wish would take a break rather than to roll out these fillers like what Fairy Tail did.

Thanks for this. I still don't know how long I'll put off watching these three, but this helps make me not so hesitant to start them...

Out of the Big 3 I enjoy OP fillers a lot. Naruto has those flashbacks that last way too long and Bleach has too many unnecessary arcs that weren't needed.
