    It all depends if I have read the manga or not. If I have, I tend to skip fillers cause they don't go to the story. But if I've never read the manga, then I don't know if it's a filler or not so I'm fine with them.

    This, if the fillers are entertaining I have no problem with them, as long as they aren't slapped in the middle of some big serious event like a war... Looking at you, Naruto Shipuuden.

    I can't for the life of me identify filler episodes at all, so I hardly ever notice. I figure that as long as I find myself enjoying the episode, I don't care if it's filler or not.

    Depends on how deep the plot is.

    Sparingly. Breathers are nice once in a while, but: breathers. Implying there have to be runs in between. Filler arcs don't work for me. Single episodes are fine.

    As others said, very little and they have to be good. I like fillers that add more rather than take away and that I can't totally tell they're fillers. Definite no-no to filler arcs because they are always terrible. I mean, have there ever been good filler arcs?

    I liked the Apis Arc of One Piece for what it was worth.

    I agree :p Well actually every single Slayers ep is hilarious. Even though the situation is critical, BAM, funny scene.

    PKMN is sometimes boring with those eps when Ash's not having a battle with a Gym Leader which my dad finds boring, nya~

    Dragon Ball Z comes to mind...or at least when I was a child.

    You know what has great filler? Gintama.

    I used to be like that, then I noticed what was filler and what wasn't and started skipping.

    Bleach does the same thing. Big fights are going on and then suddenly there's a huge break and the story shifts to some alternate reality.

    I do they flesh stuff out even if they don't really matter. I consider the manga and anime two separate beings tbh

    If I have the entire season online to watch then its no biggie. Only getting new eps once per week and then to have it turn out to be filler is frustrating.

    Isn't Pokemon like 98.70% filler?


    For me it depends if it drags the story to hell or not. Slayers is a good example of how filler should be done. Naruto on the other hand...

    Pokemon doesn't have a source to deviate from though, so would they would they really be fillers?

    Well people who watch Pokemon say either they like fillers or hate them. So they are in there somewhere.

    I know people call them filler, but filler usually suggests the show is showing something that never happened in the source material.
