Because I dislike filler episodes, I decided to make a list of all the anime series that have fillers. This way you can avoid watching them since they are a waste of time. I listed them in alphabetical order. To find your anime quickly, press ctrl+F or command+F and search for the title. If you want an anime added to this list, post a comment.

- Top 11 Best Anime Movies of All Time
Because I love watching a good animation movie, I decided to make a list of my top 11 best anime movies. I have watched a lot of animated movies and selected the ones that really moved me.
- Top 14 Best Anime Series of all Time
The top 14 anime series of all time! The most memorable and epic anime series are listed here. I selected them based on the impression they left on me.
Daniel on January 28, 2018:
I've seen Sailor Moon in its entirety and the fillers don't piss me at all. Ail and An and even Moonlight Knight were interesting characters and that dramatic showdown against Queen Nehelennia.
I don't know if I can say the same for the other anime because I've only seen a few of the many episodes from Dragonball Z, Naruto and One Piece but eventually I would watch each series in their own entirety one day when I have the time.
0zerp0 on April 04, 2015:
Could you update the episodes of fairy tail , please?
bad on March 26, 2015:
could you update detective conan pls
Yukihira on January 31, 2015:
Could you put some Hokuto no Ken (Fist of the North Star) fillers on this page please ?
Corey on November 29, 2014:
Would very much appreciate a list for wakfu
Chris1312 from Bad Vöslau, Austria on August 12, 2014:
How exactly does Pokémon have filler episodes? Pretty much nothing is based on the games which are the only source material. So either there are almost only fillers or no fillers at all. Seeing how filler episodes are episodes used to keep it from catching up to the source material, or expand on the source material.
So an anime without source material it follows (mostly at least) can't have filler episodes by definition
FT Juvia on August 09, 2014:
I just finished Yu Yu Hakusho, did it have any fillers? I really couldn't tell if it did. I was thinking of skipping Gintama fillers but now that I see it's only 10% filler I won't have to. Thanks!
Boefie (author) from Germany on June 02, 2014:
NOO episode 288 in the kid buu saga is a filler. Not the kid buu saga. I am going to update this soon btw. Too busy i.r.l...
Zelkiiro on May 26, 2014:
@jorge - Let's be honest, now. Everything after Frieza (or arguably, after Cell) is basically filler. Toriyama wanted to stop, but the network insisted.
jorge on May 25, 2014:
the kid Buu saga in DBZ is filler?
Boefie (author) from Germany on March 24, 2014:
I made the episodes bolded for readability. So that's why the one piece filler are kind of good. I never really mind watching them actually
Adrian on March 15, 2014:
Thankyou for adding One Piece, but the good thing about one piece fillers is that they ask Oda permission if they can add filler, and if it affects the story in some way, or is just plain bad, Oda declines them and they just get into hiatus.
lolll on March 01, 2014:
so for detective konan it's bolded for some epsiodes. is there a signifiance?
Boefie (author) from Germany on February 24, 2014:
Thank you! no haven't seen it yet. I'm not really into that genre.
Sarah Forester from Australia on February 13, 2014:
Love the idea of this page! Have you ever seen melancholy of haruhi suzumiya? They have the endless eight which is the same episode (with very minor edits) in a row! (because of a time loop).
Boefie (author) from Germany on January 05, 2014:
Yea, some fillers actually are good! But i just don't think its worth time to watch them when i'm rewatching a serie for example. And some series also have better fillers han another series, Naruto vs One Piece for example. I don't watch Naruto fillers anymore because there is a 90% chance they are bad.
belleart from Ireland on January 03, 2014:
This is such a good idea....i wish id seen this list when i was watching bleach.....although, i complained a lot about them, i usually dd end up enjoying them a lot :)
Boefie (author) from Germany on December 14, 2013:
Well that is totally up to you!
I only list the episodes that are NOT in the manga.
I'm not saying they are bad, but usually fillers are pretty bad.
Anyway, i also made a website for fillers where you can rate if the fillers are any good or not.
may on December 13, 2013:
dude, don't skip the Gintama fillers.. they're very well done and contain some of the funniest parts.
Boefie (author) from Germany on September 21, 2013:
I love that series, i will do it.
quinten on September 19, 2013:
can you do the shingeki no kyojin fillers for us
KL on September 18, 2013:
LOL!!! Shocking from Naruto
Boefie (author) from Germany on September 15, 2013:
I don't know, i'll look that one up shortly
ankur kumar gupta on September 15, 2013:
are there any fillers in hunter x hunter (new one) ??
Boefie (author) from Germany on September 11, 2013:
That is good to hear!
Jyasuten on September 09, 2013:
Im watching DC from the beginning and the guide has been helpful(since i loathe fillers). If anything i should be thanking you. If i stumble upon any others ill be sure to comment
Boefie (author) from Germany on September 05, 2013:
Thank you for commenting, i like to keep this filler guide as accurate as possible, and this certainly helps.
Jyasuten on September 04, 2013:
Detective Conan Episode 91 is also a filler
Boefie (author) from Germany on July 13, 2013:
N-TG on July 10, 2013:
You can also add Toriko 112-113 small arc in the filler list. Just checked 112 that was released and it's not in the manga, it's good though :P . The same applies for 113 from what I saw in the preview.
Naomi Starlight from Illinois on June 05, 2013:
Wow, you must have done a lot of research for this one! You know, I do like some fillers, in the sense that they break up the tension of the more dramatic story arcs. However, a lot of series that run a long time have this problem and it becomes a bad thing when the main plot seems abandoned or caught up in all these weakly developed side plots.
Boefie (author) from Germany on June 02, 2013:
I'll check them out
Mohamed on June 01, 2013:
Can you do more of the Pokémon fillers?
Boefie (author) from Germany on February 12, 2013:
I will remove the shugo chara fillers for now, thanks for noticing it.
Haruhi on January 07, 2013:
Episode 1-4 of Shugo Chara are certainly not fillers. ._. Perhaps partially, but there are aspects from 1-4 that are in the manga. Sure, Amu Chara Transforms waaaay too quickly, but still. The first four episodes of Shugo Chara remain mostly true to the manga. ...Mostly. OTL Take out the character transformations and they're not filler. They're actually quite relevant to revealing huge set ups in the setting. If you started on Episode 5, for instance, you wouldn't even know why Amu had the Shugo Chara eggs or what they even were, because the explanation are the first four episodes.
Boefie (author) from Germany on January 01, 2013:
Azumanga Daioh Episode 19 “One Spring Night” is an episode made up of jokes and scenes that were not in the original manga. Therefore it is a filler episode.
Zelkiiro on December 31, 2012:
Yes. Good idea. Watch Azumanga Daioh. In its entirety.
And be happy, for it is good.
Boefie (author) from Germany on December 31, 2012:
Good point Zeikiiro, haven't watched the anime myself so i just pasted it in. I am going to check it out for you. Wouldn't want you to get confused. :-)
Kney on December 30, 2012:
please keep this up :)
Zelkiiro on December 30, 2012:
Wait, Azumanga Daioh has filler? Wait, isn't Azumanga Daioh entirely filler? Wait, how could Azumanga Daioh have/be filler if it's not story-driven?
I am so confused.
nicomp really from Ohio, USA on December 02, 2012:
Yes, when Tsukumo steals the lock from Kairi and runs away, it is a big deal. No filler.
Boefie (author) from Germany on December 02, 2012:
thanks for mentioning it. I like to keep this list as accurate as possible
nicomp really from Ohio, USA on December 01, 2012:
Episode 038 of Shugo Chara! is certainly no filler.
Boefie (author) from Germany on December 01, 2012:
The Fairy Tail filler list stands just above the gintama list.
dailytop10 from Davao City on December 01, 2012:
Please include Fairy Tail filler episodes. Thank you!
nicomp really from Ohio, USA on November 22, 2012:
The best of Anime quotes...
Boefie (author) from Germany on July 20, 2012:
haha, the rogue ninja ostrich arc. That would be so epic (not).
MundaneMondays on July 19, 2012:
Hey, when i sane Detective Conan, it reminded me of this, you know how you ask a chick so how many guys have you been with ..well...that list ..i definitely can't stand a filler you make a "whole story" out of lol ..The worst Naruto filler i've seen would have to be Run Idate, Truly stupid...you shouldn't have said that Rouge Ninja comment..now Kishi will steal that idea from you and make it 70 episodes
Boefie (author) from Germany on July 08, 2012:
One piece has some fillers but they are not that bad. Naruto's fillers are truly frustrating, A rogue ninja ostrich for example...
MundaneMondays on July 08, 2012:
One piece is the best ...has the least fillers
JBrumett on July 08, 2012:
I dropped bleach because of the fillers. They should have ended it after the fight with Captain K, and the real bad guys showed up. Then proceeded to make 1-2 movies with battles to wrap it up and called it good. =-P
