All The Filler Episodes In The Naruto And Naruto Shippuden Animes

Naruto is one of the most important manga and anime of all time. Masashi Kishimoto’s work is part of the childhood and adolescence of millions of people born between the 90s and the 2000s, but it is his quality that has allowed him to transcend and continue to be an example in the world. within the shonen genre; both in the world of manga and anime. Now the Naruto anime has a considerable amount of filler; just like Naruto Shippuden. The purpose of this article is to help you identify what is canon and what is not. This way, you will be able to discern if it is worth watching those chapters or arcs that are not part of the original manga story.

If we add Naruto and Naruto Shippuden together, we find over 275 filler episodes out of the 720 that make up the anime. In other words, almost 40%. So for those of you lucky enough to be entering Konoha for the first time, or for those of you who fancy going back and forgetting about Boruto, we leave you with a list that includes all anime filler episodes. Will you join us?

Naruto: All Filler Episodes

The first part of Naruto consists of 220 episodes, of which 91 are filler episodes (over 40%). Luckily, most of the “non-canon” episodes pile up on the home stretch, where there are over 70 in a row, making it fairly easy to dodge them.

Naruto Shippuden: All Filler Episodes

Set two and a half years after Naruto, Naruto Shippuden has twice as many episodes, 500, and twice as many filler episodes, with 188 episodes (38% of the total). They’re much more complicated to avoid, as there are several so-called “mixed” episodes that include filler and the occasional canon scene. In general, we recommend avoiding mixtures. Canon scenes don’t warrant watching because they’re only a few seconds long and are recalled via flashback at the start of the next episode which is purely canon. But there is a caveat. The last 20 episodes, considered mixed, are worth watching even with their ups and downs, as they serve as an emotional goodbye, help you connect with Boruto, and contain more Kishimoto material than the rest. With these considerations, you should “just” avoid the following:
