    Hey, can anyone give a list of all of the bad things that are in the Naruto fillers? I have seen them all, but my older brother wants to know why they are so bad. So if someone can make a pro and con list that would be great....except without the pros, just cons. Thanks.

    The focal point as to why people hate fillers is not because they are fillers, but because of the duration. If there was one or two people normally wouldn't mind.

    When you wait one week for a filler and there's over 100 and it's been over a year .....you can understand.

    Occasionally there is a good filler arc that comes along (Bikouchouu, genjutsu, gennou etc) but other then that they are becoming/ HAVE become monotonous.

    People are over them, and want the restoration of the main storyline.

    Most fillers tend to exaggerate bad traits about the characters:
    - so if Naruto is a little dumb, in the fillers he is extremly stupid.
    - Also Jiraiya transform from a pervert teacher a little sly in a greatly irresponsable old man.
    - All others rookie nine lack any kind of character, except Hinata whose is portrayed as an annoying Narutofan (as Hinatafan, It's offensive).
    -Iruka pass from a good person ibto the father of naivness.

    Fillers are static, there are really few new jutsus, the characters are not exploted, the fights are similar (always Naruto has to give the last attack), there is an abuse of rasengan and all others jutsus seems pretty useless.

    There are few fights, and most are really quick, so they fail to be exciting, the fact that the Filler Naruto (100 times more annoying that our beloved Naruto) always win tend to be very stressing, also the fact that Orochimaru is the primal evil behinf most plots, because he has Sasuke is lame as a plot structure.

    Fillers would be better if Naruto was not always around (si the others can shine as well), If they learned new jutsus (after all, this "non-canon jutsus can be reused to fill fights or in all new filler fights), Stories with some importance (Arcs that would be reused as new fillers in the future, after the time-skip).

    Fillers are made in a way that do not interfere with the main story, giving as result unatractive stories, because after all you know that they are not going to affect the result anyway. They do not dare to try something like the manga.

    I like the fillers as good ideas with pretty bad results, Mizuki return was in my opinion agreat idea, but I would prefer him as a solo agent or someone working for another clan instead of Orochimaru, also they shoul "copy" the style pf the Sound5 cursed seals instead of creating tony tiger, just as an example.

    Most have good story but the end is lethal, due lack of wtriting ability or daring to change the course of the anime.

    well said Futagokage!

    In essence, the fillers aren't as good as the regular anime because of the poorly constructed plotlines. The writers make very little attempt to stick to the character development that occured in the original story e.g. although Naruto is still a bit clumsy by the end of part 1, he's much less irresponsible than he was when we first met him in episode 1...the fillers ignore this on most occasions, and treat him as a complete idiot.

    Also, alot of the ideas used in the fillers are initially quite promising. However, very little thought seems to ever go into developing these initial ideas into proper storylines or bringing together a proper conclusion.

    On the whole, for the most part it appears that the studio merely wants to fill the timeslot allocated to it for Naruto, and earn some good bucks wihout even needing to put much effort in. The animation is shoddy most of the time, and the fight scenes aren't very good either. In fact, there's very little in terms of battle development either...Naruto will either use kage bunshin, naruto rendan, or rasengan, without even bothering to use some taijutsu, or anything else for that matter.

    Lately, the quality of the fillers have improved though, if ever so slightly. Probably as a result of ratings dropping or something.

    KOJ, you are inspiring. :thumbs


    Another points that I forget and KOJ touch is that fillers look like the work of someone who has never read Naruto, the Naruto's feeling (which there is always something behind, like the fight against the solitude) is never touched in the fillers, so they do not "taste" like Naruto.

    They appear to be drawn by the same people who did episode 29 *shudders*

    Not only are the plotlines insanly stupid, but the enemies, in general have stupid techniques (see 'Star Village Arc') And the power imbalances are insane (See Genin kicking the hell out of Jounin)

    RASENGAN!

    They have yet to end a filler arc with something not stupid. (With the possible exception of the Bounty Hunter arc). Two perfectly good arcs have been ruined by such a thing. (See the Bikochu arc and the end of the Trap arc or whatever its called)

    The humor sucks... a lot. They try to make things funny when there is no need to therefor half the characters (Naruto most of all) Look as-dumb-as-sticks.

    Adding to the above reason. Naruto is in EVERY SINGLE FILLER EPISODE EVER.

    And Finally: There are just too damn many of them. Over a year of fillers and climbing... It is getting rediculuous.

    Edit: A reason for me: There is just better things to watch out there.

    In summary: It's not part II

    I would be much easier to make the list of good things in fillers. (Well, there's a possibility that list would be empty.)

    Is not that hard, the problem is that most pros have a great con, for example:

    Filler Characters are usually pretty good, their behavious are really great, sometimes intresting backgrounds and some cool jutsus, the problem with this pro is (like Gokuden said) that this is at cost of the normal characters, because they look weal and are always at the shadow of Naruto (there are few fights on fillers, and Narutos has always to be the one who wins).

    Other Pro is that the stories are usually good, for example the Hoshigakure arc have an interesting story:

    "There is a minor clan that have a star that may increase the chakra of those who train near it in an awesome way, but at cost of the health and even the life of the shinobi who use it, this artefact is wanted by many of the other villages for this reason."

    The problems with this arc is that after the part that Akahoshi(aka. Evil guy) recover the star, all the situation became really forced and even at parts ridiculous (like the final battle).

    As the characters Naruto and Neji are really there for important reasons and in this filler I feel naruto's presence as a need (for the relation with the others shinobis) and Neji's use of Byakugan is useful, but Lee and Ten-ten are there just in a symbolical way.
