Anime Fillers

Naruto Shippuden Filler List (2021) – The Complete Episodes Guide!

Naruto Shippuden filler episodes are really annoying because there are a lot of those episodes, and if you are trying to figure out which episodes are canon and which episodes can be skipped, then you are on the right page! In this article, I have made an entire table featuring all the episodes of the show and marked them as “filler” or “canon”, so that you know which ones you should watch and which ones you can avoid!

The anime series begins two-and-a-half year after the events of the original Naruto anime, after the defection of Sasuke Uchiha. Naruto is all grown up when he returns to the Konoha Village after training with Jiraiya and he is stronger than ever. In this continuation, he’ll be going toe to toe against the Akatsuki in order to protect not only his village, but the entire shinobi world from the terrors that the villainous organization intends to unleash, all the while learning new jutsus, getting stronger and making allies from all the different villages.

The anime series premiered in 2007 and ran until 2017, and a total of 500 episodes were aired. However, with a total of 203 filler episodes, the show has one of the highest filler percentage of 41%.

So the real question is, should you watch the Naruto Shippuden filler episodes? There’s not really any need to do that as they don’t contribute anything to the main story. The people who were watching the series as the episodes aired had no choice but to watch the fillers and wait for the canon episodes to resume; but since the anime has concluded, you have the chance to completely ignore the fillers and stick to the canon and save a lot of time while watching the exploits of Naruto Uzumaki and his entire gang!

However, there are a few filler episodes that are quite good, but since they don’t add anything at all to the main story, you can watch them after you’ve finished the show. Or you can watch them if you have the time to go through them! With that being said, let’s get down to business and have a look at all the filler episodes in the anime series that you can avoid if you want to.

This is the ultimate table of all the episodes in the anime show which means that you won’t need any other information. Just keep checking this table with the episodes you are currently watching, and you’ll be able to stick to the main story!

I hope that the article helped you in charting a schedule to binge-watch the entire Naruto Shippuden series in one go. If you watch the filler episodes, they will break the flow of the main story so it’s recommended that you avoid them, at least until you’re done with the anime. You can go back and watch the filler episodes after that if you want!

So, let me know if I did a good job in creating this Naruto Shippuden filler list, and also let me know if you have any suggestions to help make the articles even better! Comment your feedback below, and spread the word by sharing the post with your friends.
