another interesting topic
How do you feel about fillers in anime? Do you generally watch or skip them? If you were to watch a very long anime series such as, say, One Piece, from the beginning, would you watch or skip the (many) fillers?

Depends really. I can generally tolerate fillers if they're not long, drawn-out arc or if I feel they actually add something to the experience. So generally speaking I don't really skip filler arcs/eps. That being said if the filler is bad enough and adds nothing to the overall experience I am out of there.

    I generally watch filler episodes just because they are enjoyable in the animes I usually watch but in longer series such as One Piece I can definitely see why people would skip them.

    That being said I usually binge animes after they've long been completed so it's easier to tolerate the filler compared to ongoing shows.

    I find filler episodes to be some of the best, actually. If I watch an anime I view the entire thing from start to finish.

    depends on the series. i normally watch fillers but if it's something i read in manga form and the fillers don't seem particularly interesting then i'll skip. but there are some fillers (like some of naruto's. others i skipped because it's one of those "i just want to get to the story" animes) that give characters that normally wouldn't have any screentime more time on the screen by giving them focus and that's always nice lol.

      I found out late the word "filler", if i start something i continue to watch it till end. (Even if boring) sometimes you find things unexpected and can become one of your favo anime or other stuff. (In other words never gibe up)

      I watch most filler with no real reason other than it's there, actually. I understand why they're there, but they are a bit jarring at times if the studio doesn't put effort into actually planning them out so they don't just cut into the middle of an arc.

      i watch the fillers of the animes i watch. the only time i gave up an anime was because of filler. detective conan is a great show but i hated the ungodly amount of fillers. i know i could just skip it and watch the important ones but i dont like skipping anything. still hope i get the energy to continue watching it
