Boruto Fillers to Watch and Skip
Next in this Boruto filler guide, we will mention the Boruto filler list that is worth watching, and you can watch these episodes if you want, including the canon anime arcs:
1-16 (Academy Entrance Arc). Highly recommended. Here you will see the new generation of ninjas and a new character. However, we didn’t watch episode number 16.
33 to 37 (Graduation Exams Arc). Fans recommended it. In this Boruto arc, you will handy talk about the motivations and expectations regarding the future. But during the process, we left out episode 33.
39 to 42 (Genie Mission Arc). Recommended by us. A short and straightforward arc where you will see the first missions as genies. However, we skipped episodes 41 and 42 for being filler.
43 to 50 (Byakuya Gang Arc). Not worth watching as this episode has nothing to contribute.
67-70 (Chocho Arc). They are not recommended. These episodes can be skipped as they add no value to the storyline.
93 to 95 (Naruto Shinden: Family Day). We recommended these Boruto filler episodes as they create nostalgia among the audience.
96 to 105 (Jugo Arc). Recommended as these Boruto fillers are short and to the point. However, we skipped episodes 97 and 104.
106 to 111 (Steam Ninja Scrolls Arc). We don’t recommend it as these fillers do not fulfill their objective due and the plot is also very weak.
112 to 119 (Konohamaru Arc). Not recommended because the arc in these Boruto fillers is conflicting, and we didn’t find anything appealing in these episodes. Thus you are allowed to skip them if you want to move faster.
120 to 126 (One-Tail Escort Arc). These Boruto fillers are highly recommended as the Urashiki’s actions begin in these episodes.
However, these episodes are not that exciting.
127 to 140 (Time Slip Arc). Recommended as it narrates the travel of Boruto to stop Urashiki.
143 to 156 (Mujina Bandits Arc). This is recommended as this arc is anime canon, but only episode numbers 148, 149, and 150 are relevant. At the same time, the others are introductory episodes.
157 (Kara Actuation Arc). Recommended as episode 157 and above all are Boruto’s canon and canon anime episodes.
Are Boruto Fillers Actually Canon?
Filler lists for Boruto and other anime are usually designed by people, not by creators. In some cases, it is simple to identify the filler episodes, and in these episodes, the anime doesn’t focus on the main storyline.
But, in the case of Boruto, the manga reveals some highlights of the main anime arcs, and it doesn’t have many things from the original manga.
As per creators, there are no filler episodes in the Boruto, and the entire anime is canon. But fans have labelled some episodes as Boruto fillers or Boruto filler episodes.
The reason to include the Boruto filler episode is that manga needed some spare time to create new ideas and a storyline, and they did not want the anime to hijack its timeline. Hence they created some parallel stories for the Boruto anime.
