Ino makes a request to also become Tsunade's student and everyone says goodbye to Naruto, who is about to head off for his two-and-a-half years of training with Jiraiya (who returned with information about Akatsuki's plans) You could skip this episode. It is optional.

Pick up at 72-89

Pick up at 152-169
Skip at 170 & 171
Pick up at 172-175

Pick up at 391-393
Skip 394 - onwards


*Note: I will update this post when a filler episode, filler arc surfaces or when the series ends. If I made any mistakes with the guide pm me/comment on my profile and I will fix it as soon as I am able too.

*Note: Filler is filler, canon filler will be skipped, the kakashi arc is filler no matter how good it is. This guide goes by the manga. Unless a filler arc is magically in the manga I don't see myself making a note of it or adding it.

*Note: Also, on the topic of a couple minutes of canon in one filler episode. I'm still counting it as filler and not making a note of it. I'm pretty sure it will be mentioned again in some other episode. If its like SUPER LIFE CHANGING OMG SUCH WOW couple of minutes then I'll make a note but other than that it aint being mentioned. If you are one of those people that want to see those couple of minutes: look through this forum post and you'll see people discussing them.

*Note that does not pertain to this guide: My thoughts on Naruto ATM

*Note: Special Thanks (To those that helped a lot with this guide) link9us, the people that commented on this forum and wikipedia

I have also constructed a guide that displays all arcs in accordance to chronology, including, all ova's, movies, specials upon release date and in accordance to the story if you would like to view this. Note: That this is from the Shippuuden Saga of naruto, not the original series. It is separate to this filler guide, but can be used together. (Credits: link9us)

Your guide is great and you put alot of work into it. How ever there is only one little error. Episode 98 of the original naruto anime series is canon, so don't skip that.

Everything else is good, shipuuden is very complicated especially since some of the fillers like the 12 guardian ninja arc kind of blends with the canon material so you did a good job of doing that.
It is absolutely a sin to be an anime fan and not at least experience "Akira" once in your life time.

If i were you, i would just watch the fillers, skipping them all you may find your self a little lost in the story, because some of the manga material is mixed in with the canon.

Thank you, this is a great list!

I took a break from Naruto just when the fillers started and after trying to catch up I'm amazed (and annoyed) at how many fillers there are. They usually don't bother me that much but this was waaaay too much for me. I'll keep watching but it's good to know that I'm currently only five eps away from the main storyline!

You know i couldn't help but notice after glancing through some of the filler arcs, their are a few episodes that have "canon" material mixed in them that you missed. I will try and help clarify this and quote each section so you understand it and then change it if you want.

First of all, the original series naruto is fine, its shippuuden that needs the patch work

"Skip at 57-71"
Skip at 57 -70
71 - Last 10 min or so is manga material. But is relevant for the next arc.


"Skip at 90-112"
90 - manga/filler
91 - skip
92 - manga/filler
skip 93-100
101 - manga/filler
skip 102 - 111
112 - manga/filler



"Skip at 176-196"
This one can be confusing cause alot of people some times miss it because its during the konoho history arc.

176 - manga/filler
skip - 177
178-181 - manga/filler
skip 182-196
most of these involve information related to the taka group, and also some related events to tobi. If you watch the anime, you know what im taking bout.



Some of these are very brief well others are mostly at the end of each arc coming into the manga so they are relevant but for anyone who wants every possible canon material, they might want to consider watching these. I would give explanations for the sake of spoilers i'll leave it up to you to judge, you can take a look at the episodes i marked in question and see for your self, anyways there ya go!

So, I'm reading this right. The original Naruto has 84 straight episodes of filler to end the series? I wanted to try to skip the filler, but this seems excessive. Am I really not going to miss anything good if I throw those episodes out?

I guess, what I'm trying to say is...Once I start Shippuden, I'm not going to be confused by or expected to already know about any new abilities, plot elements, etc. That were in the fillers?

Well there's nothing story related until the last episode, but they are not bad, they are just episodes of naruto and the other ninja groups like neji's and kiba's groups going on missions and other stuff like that. Fun but not essential.

They are completely your choice, you won't miss anything if you go to shippuden as long as you watch the last episode of naruto, 220.

Thanks for the quick response. I'm sure I'll start watching them once I get there and if I get bored, I'll just skip on ahead to the final episode and head into Shippuden.

Technically 220 is the only one you want to watch, but their is very little canon material in episode 141 and 142, its your choice if you want to watch it, its intermingled with the filler arc though. But episode 141, 142 and 220 are all connected together and adapted from a few chapters of the manga. But its very very subltle, hardly anything worth watching.

Though i will say everyone is different and it really depends upon how dedicated you are to naruto and the whole concept, some of the fillers are actually pretty interesting, well others are borderline failure. You may decide to check out the first few which are actually pretty decent.

But if you want a straight run of the manga, just follow the guide here.

Which reminds me, this needs to be updated if Zanzabar is around.

Add episodes 279-281 are fillers.


Btw guys, its naruto's 500th episode now. Time to celebrate :P


Out of 500 episodes in TOTAL. 173 of them are filler and can be skipped
So you only have to watch 327 out of the 500 episodes.

Well, first off, thank you for writing this guide! About 4 or 5 years ago I suddenly stopped watching Naruto because of a filler arc... Meant to pick it back up once it finished, but I never did. Then a few weeks ago I saw an AMV, and, to shorten this up, now I'm almost caught up. And I wouldn't have gotten this far without this guide. Thanks again!

But, as to why I'm posting - Are NS 257-260 filler? As the anime says, they're a 4 week long special for the 10th anniversary of Naruto. I've skipped through them, and they don't seem to have anything that continues the current story... :/

Edit: Add 271 to that too. Seems to just be a special for the movie "Road to Ninja."

Yes they are filler, with the exception of 257 which is half filler/half manga. Specials or not, anything that is not canonical with the story and not adapted from the original source material is filler.

271 can be called a filler but it was written by kishimoto as a tie in to the 6th movie.

I apologize for my lack of information but I believe on thing that might be helpful to people using this guide is if you would mention the two early episodes that are filler.
In one of the episodes during the land of waves arc, only the last 10 minutes actually has any plot, the first 13 minutes is filler.
Also, there are two filler episodes in the chuunin exam arc, the first episodes of the second and third tests are filler.

This guide is a "filler episode guide" its not for cutting out minute filler with in the canon story, that will just confuse people and they will skip episodes that have relevance to the actual plot.

The only true filler arc is the land of tea in the first series everything else pretty much follows the manga story, if their is a few min of filler here and there, people don't care bout that as much, but more so the filler arcs or the episodes that contain "all" filler material.

I want to thank you for this post, I am trying to quickly catch up on Shippuden so this guide has allowed me to skip the unneeded bits. With your guide I am on 114 in 4/5 days. The show really has me hooked right now. Freaking love Shikamaru as a character, especially the with the whole thing with Hidan.
