    Default Most/Least Favorite Filler Sagas

    Filler sagas, when the anime get's too close to the manga plotwise, the anime writers employ this to stall time to get the manga farther away. Most ends up crap, but others are tolerable. What are your most and least favorite filler sagas of anime?

    For me:
    Most: Garlic Jr. saga, Dragonball Z and the episode of Naruto where they try to remove Kakashi's mask.
    Least: Konoha 11 saga, Naruto

    I use "uber" Pokemon in allotted tiers, I calculate stat values, I draw the line at cheating devices, I breed my way to perfection, and I care about natures. I breed my Pokemon out of the most ideal parental stock, and treat them like brainless drones made out of bits of data. I believe that thinking of them as anything more is pointless.

    All of the Naruto filler crap?
    The best would probably be the Garlic Jr. Saga, as you said.

    There's too many ones I dislike so I'll go with the ones I do like.

    Rurouni Kenshin- Only fillers I like there were the ones between Aoshi's saga up to Shishio's. the ones after Shishio's suck.

    DBZ- DBZ had many filler even within the canon saga, but as filler saga itself, it'll have to be Afterlife Tenkaichi budokai even though it had it had some plotholes.

    there's more but have to remember them atm.

    I think my favorite filler arc would be the Noah arc in Yu-Gi-Oh...gave the minor characters some dueling time(don't ask me why I actually suppoted that, but at least it had some diversity since there are 2 other Big 5 members). Plus it's the only one of the three filler arcs that's longer than three episodes long that I actually liked. Yes, that means I didn't like DOMA. Shame on me for the hax that is the Orichalcos. Now for the other YGO fillers...

    I dunno why; but while she was a brat(and how in the world did she believe that Arthur's Blue-Eyes was STOLEN?!), I actually rather liked Rebecca. Though her constant swearing in the Japanese eludes me since she's a little young to be doing that...in America(admit it, you knew this was coming). Also, it's the only time Yugi duels without Atem's help until Memory World.

    Virtual World arc...three words: Master Dragon Knight. Actually, it's Master of Dragon Soldier, but you get the idea.^^; And I squeal for this combines two of my favorite video game genres: card games and RPGs. How fun~^_^

    The Garlic, Jr. saga was f'in terrible. Worst filler in all of DBZ, and that's saying something.

    Best filler arc? Well, it's not really an arc, but the boat ride exam in Hunter x Hunter.

    Well, not really a filler SAGA... But I absolutely love the filler added to the Pilaf Saga of Dragonball. Well, excluding the pinball stuff... And also not a filler saga, the episode of DBZ where Goku and Piccolo went for their driver's lisences. XD

    As for filler I don't like... The Apis arc of One Piece and a lot of Pokemon's Johto stuff...

    the davy back fight was KIND OF a filler, and i loved it, and i also liked episode 101 of naruto. u guessed it, kakashi's mask.

    I disliked the naruto fillers, and the johto pokemon fillers. theyre THE reason I didn't watch for like 2 years.

    You know, we don't have to argue... you could always shut up and accept my point of view as hard cold fact.

    For me I loved the Davy Back Fight in One Piece(Even though it was a partial filler) and Kakashi's mask episode of Naruto.

    And the worst IMO is the Naruto filler episode where they have to protect the teacup.

    Yeah, when you think about the events of the saga, it's pretty much obvious that it isn't filler.

    Ah yes, Naruto. Two years of pointless fillers just to buy enough time to catch up to the manga with the cost of several viewers. I bet the ratings dropped during that time.

    Bount Arc, it just felt cliche even if it does exist in other anime fillers but the whole ideas felt a bit out of Bleach's place. I already hated that Ichinose character, I'm glad that he died for nothing.
