Top 10 Worst Anime Filler Moments

Anime is known for having tons of filler these are the moments of filler that felt totally pointless, feel out of place or just drag on way longer than needed.

The Top Ten

1 Paradise Life on a Boat - Naruto Shippuden

12 episodes of pure filler of Naruto on a boat. - egnomac

2 Gohan, Krillin and Bulma on Fake Namek - Dragon Ball Z

Gohan, Krillian and Bulma land on what they thought was planet Namek they end up meeting to Namekians who agree to help them search of the Dragon Balls and after all their effort it turns out that they're not planet Namek at all and were duped by the two guys posing as the Namekians who distracted them so they could steal their ship though they do manage to escape and it makes this whole part of Dragon Ball Z a complete waste of time. - egnomac

3 The Final Three Episodes - Dragon Ball Z

The series should have ended with the Buu saga but instead they throw in these final three episodes that take place years in the future which end up becoming wasted filler that ultimately leads to one of the most disappointing finales to an anime series. - egnomac

4 Noah Saga - Yu-Gi-Oh!

While not really that bad but I really hated that they had to stop the whole Duel City tournament just to have Kaiba, Yugi and all his friends being forced to compete against Kiaba Corps former board of directors in a virtual world held by Noah a kid who has a bone to pick with Kaiba. - egnomac

Its what I hated about season three.

5 Warship Island - One Piece
6 Garlic Jr Saga - Dragon Ball Z

If you never watched the Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone movie chances are you won't know who Garlic Jr is, this saga that started off season four of Dragon Ball Z feels completely out of place and serves no real purpose. - egnomac

7 Eclipse Celestial Spirits - Fairy Tale
8 Ash Goes to School - Pokémon

While a change of pace from the usual thing of Ash traveling all over the region battling against Gym leaders in order to compete in the Pokémon League but the idea of having Ash being on vacation and then attending a Pokémon School for the most of the Sun and Moon anime it feels incredibly boring. - egnomac

9 The Orange Islands - Pokemon

After losing the Pokémon League Ash and company go to the Orange Islands to pick up a special ball then have Brock leave the group to stay with Professor Ivy and have Ash competing against the Orange Island crew not only that but also have one of the most boring and forgettable traveling companions join Ash and Misty, the entire second season was nothing but filler, though one of the few memorable moments from season 2 were moments involving Ash and Misty. - egnomac

10 Sana's Super Happy Quiz Show - Kodocha

This episode is exactly what is says it is, it's a quiz show and that's pretty much it they basically show clips from the past episodes and Sana, Akedo, Sanekichi and Miho Obana the writer of the series attempt to answer questions based off the clip. - egnomac

The Contenders

11 Key of the Starry Sky - Fairy Tail
