Boruto Fillers: How many Fillers Are there?

Boruto is an excellent follow-up anime to the events of Naruto. It showcases the differences between the new generation from the old generation that we all know and love.

But not every anime fan has the time to go through 208 episodes to watch the stuff specific only to Boruto’s new Jougan powers! It could take days of binge-watching and quick eyes to look at the hints in the episodes.

Also, as the anime catches up with the manga, fillers need to be added to give the source material enough time.

The anime has so far released 208 episodes and five new episodes (episode 209, 210, 211, 212, 213) are yet to be released in August, out of which 147 episodes are filler episodes, making it up to 69%.

These episodes give a fresh perspective to the supporting cast and include various interactions with the original Naruto characters! Some fans even say that few easter eggs in the fillers hint towards future events.

Anything that doesn’t follow the manga’s plotline is considered a filler, be it anime canon or partial canon unless it follows the story written by Kishimoto and Kodachi; we will always consider it to be a filler.

3. Which Fillers Can You Skip?

Boruto fillers can be incredibly annoying if you’re not a hardcore fan of the series. While some filler episodes are really worth watching, most of them are a total waste of time.

A staggering 69% of the episodes of Boruto are filler episodes, and even if you wish to skip all of it, you cannot since half of it makes up the whole plot of the anime.

  • Crisis: The Threat of Failing! (Episode 16)
  • Run, Sarada! (Episode 17)
  • Team 7: The First Mission (Episode 40)

  • I Can’t Stay in My Slim Form (Episode 156)

4. Are Boruto Fillers Actually Canon?

Filler lists for anime are usually made by the fans and not released by the studios.

In most cases, it is pretty easy to guess which episode is filler and which is not because if the anime doesn’t follow a particular plot of the manga, that part becomes a filler.

Boruto Fillers: How Many Fillers Are There?

However, in the case of Boruto, the manga shows us the highlights of main anime arcs and hence does not include every single thing from the manga itself.

The creators have even stated that the entire anime is canon and disregarded all the episodes labeled as filler by the fans.

The truth is, the filler episodes, while not being a part of the manga, are still canon because initially, Boruto manga and anime were autonomous.

Boruto manga needed some time to develop new stories and did not want the anime to overtake its current timeline, so some parallel stories were added to the anime.

You can still skip all the filler episodes listed above as they do not affect the main plot at all and are just there to give additional information on characters’ backgrounds. Some even give character development to the cast!

6. Conclusion

As we all know, the Boruto manga and Boruto anime made their debut almost simultaneously. As a result, both mediums use fillers to free up time for additional content to be adapted into different versions.

Not all fillers are a waste of time, and they can sometimes provide great insight in knowing a particular character arc, other than the usual canon episodes.  

But the quantity of it determines one’s attention span to stick with the anime. 

Although the anime has been delayed by a week, the dates of the new five unreleased episodes, i.e., episodes 209-213 have been released: 

EpisodesRelease Date
209 (Anime Exclusive)1 August 2021
210 (Anime Exclusive)8 August 2021
211(Anime Exclusive)15 August 2021
212 (Canon)22 August 2021
213(Canon)29 August 2021

Boruto is an excellent follow-up anime to the events of Naruto. It showcases the differences between the new generation from the old generation that we all know and love.

But not every anime fan has the time to go through 208 episodes to watch the stuff specific only to Boruto’s new Jougan powers! It could take days of binge-watching and quick eyes to look at the hints in the episodes.

Also, as the anime catches up with the manga, fillers need to be added to give the source material enough time.

The anime has so far released 208 episodes and five new episodes (episode 209, 210, 211, 212, 213) are yet to be released in August, out of which 147 episodes are filler episodes, making it up to 69%.

These episodes give a fresh perspective to the supporting cast and include various interactions with the original Naruto characters! Some fans even say that few easter eggs in the fillers hint towards future events.

Anything that doesn’t follow the manga’s plotline is considered a filler, be it anime canon or partial canon unless it follows the story written by Kishimoto and Kodachi; we will always consider it to be a filler.

The filler episode list that I will be showing will consist of anime canon, partial canon, and the actual fillers of this series.

3. Which Fillers Can You Skip?

Boruto fillers can be incredibly annoying if you’re not a hardcore fan of the series. While some filler episodes are really worth watching, most of them are a total waste of time.

A staggering 69% of the episodes of Boruto are filler episodes, and even if you wish to skip all of it, you cannot since half of it makes up the whole plot of the anime.

4. Are Boruto Fillers Actually Canon?

Filler lists for anime are usually made by the fans and not released by the studios.

In most cases, it is pretty easy to guess which episode is filler and which is not because if the anime doesn’t follow a particular plot of the manga, that part becomes a filler.

However, in the case of Boruto, the manga shows us the highlights of main anime arcs and hence does not include every single thing from the manga itself.

The creators have even stated that the entire anime is canon and disregarded all the episodes labeled as filler by the fans.

The truth is, the filler episodes, while not being a part of the manga, are still canon because initially, Boruto manga and anime were autonomous.

Boruto manga needed some time to develop new stories and did not want the anime to overtake its current timeline, so some parallel stories were added to the anime.

You can still skip all the filler episodes listed above as they do not affect the main plot at all and are just there to give additional information on characters’ backgrounds. Some even give character development to the cast!

6. Conclusion

As we all know, the Boruto manga and Boruto anime made their debut almost simultaneously. As a result, both mediums use fillers to free up time for additional content to be adapted into different versions.

Not all fillers are a waste of time, and they can sometimes provide great insight in knowing a particular character arc, other than the usual canon episodes.  

But the quantity of it determines one’s attention span to stick with the anime. 

Although the anime has been delayed by a week, the dates of the new five unreleased episodes, i.e., episodes 209-213 have been released: 

EpisodesRelease Date
209 (Anime Exclusive)1 August 2021
210 (Anime Exclusive)8 August 2021
211(Anime Exclusive)15 August 2021
212 (Canon)22 August 2021
213(Canon)29 August 2021
