So we have to wait 2 weeks for a filler. We just came off a long filler for months, and they do this?

Crunchyroll DO SOMETHING.

So you're implying that there was a point in time at which Naruto wasn't crappy?

I don't think that Crunchyroll have the influence to change whatever Studio Pierrot decides to do. Gotta stick with it or read the Manga I am afraid.

Blame the studio animating the series who decided to throw in filler instead of finishing the series when the manga is already finished.

If I was watching naruto, I would be pretty pissed.

I like Naruto. But even my patience is running low. after many months of fillers it finally gets back to the story. I am so hyped up like a little school girl on candy and soda . Then 1 episode later it goes into a half show filler . then a full filler last week and now no show this week . I fill like I got kicked in the groin and I wasn't told why . At this point I almost wish I had read the manga instead of waiting to watch it. at least then the fillers wouldn't hurt so much But you cant blame cruchyroll for that. and to say Naruto is $^%@ just because of this. then please tell me this why are you watching it ? Stop. go watch something else. Enjoy you anime time . Me while I am not big on fillers. I can wait it out. I have hundreds of anime I can watch while waiting for the main story line.

Funny. I dropped it in Shipuuden after about 200 something eps. Kishimoto's writing style changed dramtically and I honstely didn't think it was a good thing.. and yeah fillers can be annoying at some points.

I think you're right about that... I can't help wondering if someone might someday actually tally them up and give us a firm result. I would guess that it's close to 50/50 with filler winning out by a slim margin.

I always find it funny when people complain about recent Naruto filler as if it was some sort of new thing. I think people are blinded by the lens of Simulcast delays, as simulcast watching puts a hard delay on getting through filler, and fail to realize that Naruto has been much, much worse in the past.

Aside from the very first arcs of the story, which did contain small fillers as well, the entire run of the show(both shows) has been almost half filler. The original Naruto might have been over half filler, and the ENTIRE SECOND HALF of the run minus the last half of the last episode of the series was 100% filler. That was 84 straight filler episodes. Literally If you were watching it week to week, I'm pretty sure it was at least about a year and a half straight of no canon material whatsoever. Even after Shippuden started they were only able to keep canon to for the first 2 arcs at about 50 episodes, after that the story pretty much alternates between two cour blocks of filler followed by about the same of canon.

I haven't caught all the way up with the series, as it is something I watch periodically in my off times(I'm somewhere in the filler arc that takes place on the ship after the 5 Kage Summit arc), but if a few months of filler is bothering you NOW, I find it kind of strange since the standard Naruto filler arc is about 6 months and happens every 6 months. Its nothing new at all so the fact that it would somehow bother you only now after 600 episodes of it baffles me. Now if the ratio has changed recently then I could see an issue. A couple of months of filler after having a week of canon material I could see as an issue of course.

As to why they haven't finished the story when the story is finished I'd probably look into whatever studio licencing deals were arranged ahead of time. If they licensed the show for a certain amount of seasons then they are going to fill those episodes with something even if they don't have the canon material to do so. Its not like the manga has been finished for ages or anything. They probably didn't even start planning the final arcs adaptation until after the manga finale, and they probably had a string of work already done with storyboarding for fillers ages ago. Basically they went "Is the manga done yet? Nope. Okay we'll get work on another 2 cour filler arc and we'll try back again in six months. Its only been 7 months since the manga ended and who know how long they spend doing prep work before they have it ready to start work directly on the episodes.

Its 40% filler in Naruto and 39% filler in Shippuden. Out of the last 100 episodes it has been 56% filler in Shippuden I believe. Both series filler are kind of skewed towards the later parts of the series in question as both started with a significant canon run before having to start flip flopping with filler. Naruto's entire second half is filler basically and Shippuden basically runs six months on six months off with filler as I stated before.

Crunchyroll can't do anything about it, they're not the one making the anime :P

Though the ones who do should stop with the damn filler arcs at least. The manga is done already, finish the anime already.
