    I think there were 100 chapters when the anime started, but I'm not sure.

    I'll say they were on the Finals of the Chuunins Exam in the manga, when the anime was released. I know it had to be somewhere around there because the first episode featured the other characters, when in the manga, they had random people.

    According to ANN the 1st episode aired on 3rd Oct 2002, with the manga starting in Nov 1999, thats around 92 weeks gap, so around 90 chapters should have been published when the anime had started.

    Actually, that's about a 3 year gap, which would be closer to 156 weeks. 92 weeks isn't even 2 years at 52 weeks in a year :p

    So when the anime went to fillers, what point was the manga at?

    Bah, I guess I can do the math...if the fillers started last June, that's about 80 weeks. So they were in the 240's in the manga. Huh, I never realized the two were so close together, they must've written the last cannon episode literally right after they released it's manga counterpart.

    A quick breakdown:

    When the anime started, the manga had around 130 chapters (I think).

    When the fillers started, the manga was only about 20 chapters ahead of the anime.

    The manga is currently 87 chapters ahead of the anime.

    Another fact is that for the last 40 chapters or so of the manga, chapters have been 2 pages shorter than they used to be, so a total of about 4 whole chapters worth of material is lost through them compared to what it would've been before. Less gets covered in the average chapter now than used to earlier on in the series too, so compared to how things used to be, it's more like there's about the equivalent of like 75 chapters instead of 87.

    well that means that if they do start the anime again, it'll catch up too quickly, you know what maybe they'll just finish all of the manga off and then start the anime, i would read the manga but there isnt as much detail in it as the anime, and the music in the anime, just adds to its greatness, what are you supposed to tdo in the manga, play the music and start reading the manga
