I don't mind reading novels as long as the story captivates me. Same goes for any other medium really. :p I read and loved The Da Vinci Code. Even though I don't remember most of the story right now.

XD;
Depends on the story, I guess. The DGM novels give background stories to the main story. The funny thing is that the main stories of the two first novels got animated as "fillers", but they aren't "fillers" per deffinition of "filler", as they're actually canon. |D

I don't mind reading either, be it a book or- as I recently discovered- Visual Novels.

It doesn't have to be non-canon to be filler though. I generally regard any episode that doesn't add to the whole story as a filler one.

Then a lot of the DGM "fillers" aren't "fillers" according to your definition. I like that definition. : > I love background stories. Episodes for the sake of fanservice, for example, are definitally filler.

Like the ever-so-obligatory swimsuit episode.

Yup. It's also usually the episode where the big-breasted girl/woman wears the smallest swimsuit. :B

That's why it's called fanservice. Of course it sells. Doesn't mean it has to appeal to me, though. Gimmemyshinysparklybishiesloljkwut

Speaking of Light Novels, I heard that DRRR is a Light Novel and I want to check it out (even though I'll miss Complication ;_;)

Oh, and I'm almost through my rewatch of Dragon Ball, just around 15 episodes left :D It feels like a curse, having to watch this show, but this has been more enjoyable than when I originally watched.

...And uncensored, Dragon Ball has a lot of fanservice (well, not so much compared to modern anime)...I'm honestly surprised that Toonami was brave enough to pick it up.

I'm fairly sure DRRR! (and Baccano as well, by the same folks) has much more LN material than what they used in the show. So that's definitely something to check out.
