    Worth-Watching Filler Arcs

    One of the most asked questions that I’ve encountered from people who have just started watching Naruto is whether they should watch the fillers. Naruto and Naruto Shippuden combined consist of 720 episodes. Around 40% of those episodes are fillers.

    Many people ask “should we watch fillers nevertheless of them being irrelevant to the main plot as they are first-time watchers?”

    What I really want to cover here is that I’ll be guiding people who are not sure whether they should skip all the fillers or watch some of them.

    Naruto Part 1

    If you are someone who is watching Naruto for the first time and have literally no idea about the world of Naruto then my recommendation is that you watch all the episodes from 1-142.

    There are a few filler episodes in between, but my recommendation is to watch those episodes as well. These episodes have a good plot and mainly it will help the viewer to bend into the world of Naruto even more.

    Now, according to the filler list episodes from 143-219 are filler. But there are a few episodes in between which are enjoyable to watch and you can consider spending time on those episodes. Although, this is optional and you can skip the episodes as per your choice.

    • Watch episodes 148-151

    Hinata learns a new technique in this arc which is great to watch. This arc has a decent plot and good animation.

    • Watch episode 192

    Naruto and Ino go on a mission together. This is a good episode where we see a lot of interaction between Naruto and Ino, which doesn’t happen much in the canon episodes.

    • Watch episodes 203-207

    This arc gives the very much-needed screen time to Kurenai. This arc has a good plot with great animation where we see Kurenai playing an important role.

    • Watch episodes 216-220

    This is the best filler arc in Naruto Part1. The plot is amazing and we see great fights which involve a combined mission from the Sand and the Leaf Village. I strongly recommend you to watch this. Episode 220 is canon.

    Naruto Shippuden

    Shippuden consists of a total of 500 episodes so I’m not going to recommend too many arcs and waste your time. Few arcs are great to watch with a decent plot. Nevertheless, it is completely your choice whether you want to watch it or not.

    • Watch episodes 57-71

    This arc has some really good fights with great animation and a decent plot. We meet a character who has some chakra of the nine tails which was stolen when the nine tails attacked the leaf.

    • Watch episodes 91-112

    This arc is the best filler arc in Naruto Shippuden. This involves a character named Guren who has access to a rare Kekkei Genkai: Crystal Release. Apart from this, the entire arc involves sealing the three-tailed beast by different groups including Leaf Shinobi. It is a great arc and I strongly recommend watching this.

    • Watch episodes 144-151

    This arc is a short filler arc before the plot goes into the Pain arc. These episodes involve the 6 tails Jinchuriki Utakata.

    In the manga, we are just shown Utakata without any other information about him, but this arc gives some backstory and deeper information about his character.

    These are the 3 arcs I recommend you to watch. Apart from these filler episodes most of the other episodes are not necessary to watch.

    But there are a lot of single/double filler episodes which happen in between the war arc. You can watch or skip them as per your choice.


    Naruto Movies

    All Naruto Movies are Fillers except “The Last: Naruto The Movie” and “Boruto: Naruto The Movie” which are canon.

    All filler movies aren’t connected to Naruto or Naruto Shippuden and that’s why we have written movies in separate sections at end of this article.

    Are Naruto Movies Canon?

    There are a total of 11 Naruto movies out of which only two of them are considered canon. The two movies are “The Last: Naruto the Movie” and “Boruto: Naruto the Movie.”

    When I say canon, it means that these two are the only movies written by Masashi Kishimoto the creator of Naruto.

    The other movies not being written by Kishimoto are considered filler and thus they do not come anywhere in the original Naruto Storyline.

    Here’s when to watch the 2 canon episodes of Naruto Shippuden –

    The Last: Naruto the Movie

    This movie is a continuation of the Naruto storyline. Kishimoto after ending his Manga series with the 700th chapter wrote this Novel.

    This movie needs to be watched after Naruto Shippuden episode 493. It is important to watch this Movie before watching episodes 494-500, as the events in those episodes are directly linked to this movie and you will not understand anything if you skip this movie.

    Boruto: Naruto the Movie

    This is also written by Kishimoto and is a continuation of Naruto’s story.

    Watch this movie after finishing all the episodes and movies (if you’re planning to watch it) of Naruto part 1 and Naruto Shippuden.

    Also, a small disclaimer: –

    If you are planning to watch the Anime “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” then you can skip this movie as the Anime covers the events of this movie from episodes 53-65. But if you want to watch both Anime and the Movie then you’re free to do so.
