The world of naruto has only continued to grow over the decades, with the current history of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations following the last group of ninjas born from the hidden village of Konoha. The anime adaptation of the series gives fans more content via original content that exists outside of the manga, but one fan decided to give his partner a gift that hits the series’ “filler content” in his together, which is a tall order considering how a large percentage of original content is for the TV series.
If you don’t know, a “filler episode” is an anime episode that was created specifically for television, having not been mentioned in the original manga or light novel origins source material of a episode. Naruto itself is said to have around forty percent original content over these first two series, and continues to release original episodes in its final series, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. In the case of Boruto, the series effectively allows the manga to create new stories, with the anime sequel series catching up pretty quickly as it recently completed the story of the fight against Kara Organization’s Jigen, which is dangerously close to the one manga. arc of current.
Youtuber Oceaniz has halted the editing process for all “Filler” material from the two original series of Naruto and Naruto: Shippuden respectively, which is a task in itself considering the anime’s original content supplemented by hundreds of episodes of material in the end:
Typically, the response to filler material in anime is not received with open arms in the fan community, with said material often giving fans stories that some viewers still cannot understand to this day, including ninja ostriches and a robotic Naruto look-alike that Orochimaru apparently made in his spare time. Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is currently taking the opportunity to use its filler material to highlight characters that haven’t been given as much of a spotlight in the manga, while also introducing new characters to Konoha’s story.
