Boruto Fillers: How many Fillers Are there?

Boruto is the follow-up anime to the events of Naruto. However, it is notorious for its high filler content. Not every anime fan has the time to comb through 293 episodes to find the manga-canon plot.

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.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations has released 293 episodes as of March 2023. Of these 293 episodes, 30 are complete fillers. A total of 222 (75%) episodes are either fillers, anime originals, or partial canon.

6. Are Boruto Fillers Actually Canon?

The filler episodes, while not being a part of the manga, are still canon because initially, Boruto manga and anime were not autonomous. The creators have even stated that the entire anime is canon and disregarded all the episodes labeled as filler by the fans.

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

Boruto Fillers: How Many Fillers Are There?
Boruto | Source: Comic Natalie

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 the main anime arcs and hence does not include every single thing from the manga itself.

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.

7. How to Watch Boruto?

Boruto consists of a single anime series with 293 episodes and a movie, so you can watch them in their release order.

To find an extensive and detailed list of how to watch all Boruto episodes and movies, check out our watch order guide.

8. Conclusion

The majority of Boruto episodes consist of fillers, so if you try to cut off all of them, you will be left with a hollow skeleton. While you can use our list to skip some of the episodes, it is recommended to watch the rest despite them being anime originals.
