Naruto is one of the most successful popular in recent years. Masashi Kishimoto’s series picked up the Dragon Ball baton and managed to catch an entire generation of fans. Since then, it has not stopped being exploited through video games, movies and much more. In addition, its sequel Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is conquering a new audience, so the saga continues to grow.

However, those of us who are fans of Naruto know that his anime has a very big problem: the filler. Both the original Naruto series and Naruto Shippuden have a lot of filler chapters that either add nothing to the original plot and are other independent stories, or serve to complement the universe of the protagonist.

Although there are some filler chapters that are worth watching, the vast majority are very passable. Therefore, if you want to catch up with the anime but you do not want to have to watch so many chapters that contribute little or nothing, we leave you with a list of all the episodes that you can save.

Naruto filler arches

The first stretch of the original Naruto series features no filler, but that soon changes when the Chunnin exam arc arrives and episodes that stray from the main plot begin to emerge. We leave you with all the episodes in this block that are filler:

26 – Special report! In director from the forest of terror

53 – It’s been a long time! The perverted hermit appears

57 – He flew! He jumped! He dived! The Toad King appears!

Although the latter have some elements from the original manga, the rest is filler. Things start to get more complicated in the following arcs, when the filler begins to surface.

Search for Tsunade

97 – Naruto’s experience with hot springs!

98 – Stop being a ninja! Tsunade’s news!

99 – The one who inherits the will of fire

104 – Run, Idate! The stormy Nagi Island, full of trouble!

105 – Almost at the finish line! A thunderous battle

106 – Will I date arrive? The ultimate display of perseverance!

Things get complicated when Naruto’s story ends completely before the time skip and the series still has many chapters to air before catching up. It is here when several filler arcs arrive that are completely avoidable and contribute little to the plot, beyond getting to know secondary characters better.
