Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Filler List: The Complete Guide and What to Skip! (2021)

  • by

In 2016, mangaka Ukyō Kodachi started writing Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, a sequel manga to Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto, one of the most popular manga series ever written. Kodachi left the manga after 13 volumes, with Kishimoto himself taking over the writing duties of Boruto. Boruto follows the adventures of the titular character, Naruto’s son, years after the conclusion of Kishimoto’s Naruto storyline. While controversial for many fans, Boruto has been gaining in popularity and was adapted into an ongoing anime series back in 2017.

In today’s article, we are going to analyze the content of the Boruto anime series, giving you a complete list of canon, mixed and filler episodes. You’re going to find out which episodes are manga (or anime) canon, which are mixed episodes and which are fillers. Boruto has its fair share of actual filler episodes, which are going to be specifically addressed in the article, but luckily for us, that is nothing to worry about. Now, let us begin!

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations filler list

This section is going to contain a full list of Boruto episodes – both aired and planned – as of August 13, 2021. As of that date, there is a total of 214 episodes, 30 of which are filler. When compared to the original Naruto series, that is still a relatively low filler percentage; also, Boruto doesn’t as of yet, have any major (or minor, for that matter) filler arcs like Naruto did, as the filler episodes are either completely individual or appear in small groups. Here is a list:

Can you skip the Boruto fillers?

If you analyzed our list carefully, you will have noticed that Boruto has a total of 28 filler episodes, which is a relatively big number, but not as big when you compare it to the total number of episodes; these 28 episodes take up a low 15% of the total episode count. So, can you skip them?

The fact is that Boruto doesn’t have any major filler arcs (yet). Most of these episodes are either an individual or smaller groups and they do not have any influence on the plot, so in that aspect – they are all skippable. Still, Boruto has the “issue” of being a show that has its own, anime canon, and the majority of the show’s episodes are part of that separate narrative canon. There are manga canon episodes, but they’re not as numerous as one would expect.

What does this mean for the filler episodes? Well, this structure of the anime means that, although you can skip them, we do not advise you to skip the Boruto filler episodes, as they form part of the anime’s unique narrative structure. This is why we think they are not worth skipping, but if you’re worried about – eventually – missing out on something by skipping them – that won’t happen. They are perfectly skippable, but we suggest you give them a go.

Are Boruto fillers worth watching?

Boruto fillers are worth watching. This manga gives you more information on characters’ backgrounds and some characters get more development, you also get to see adaptations of the one-shots.

Why does Boruto have so much filler?

The Boruto anime and manga started at the same time, so anime had to make their own stories while waiting for books to finish their part. That is why Boruto has so many fillers.
