I'm sure we all know one of three reasons to as why fillers in anime is necessary The anime is almost catching up with the Manga since Japanese TV stations are strict about contracts you sometimes need fillers to either keep that time slot or to meet the episode requirements. Or if you're Naruto and the manga is already done but you still insists on fillers. Anywaysssss getting back to the topic. Yes, Anime fillers are evil. But IMO I would rather have a filler arc than the anime going on hiatus and possibly losing their time slot on TV stations. but, that's just me. Let's forget that fillers can sometimes/very rarely be decent when they, for example go into a character's back story? (idk I'm trying to be optimistic here) Also, I don't agree with giving an anime a low score because of the fillers. Think about it, would you rather have 25 ep anime with no fillers or however many long run anime's with fillers have? Cause I would prefer the latter. Not much happens in 25 eps. Yes, I skip fillers and if you really hate them just watch don't them and take a break? Like I just don't think it's 100% fair to blame the anime itself when it comes to it.
