ESSAY: Is Filler Really That Bad? A Simple Inquiry Into the Nature of Time

I swear that this article appeared in the original manga

Imo, it all depends on the nature of the filler itself.

I’m gonna be controversial here, and say I didn’t mind the bount arc in Bleach. While lackluster, the story did feel like it could have been part of the manga.

Then we have a whole nother tangent. The first season of To Love Ru is over half filler, but most of it is perfectly fine, as it does capture the mangas energy very well.

Mid-season recaps however. I can’t stand them. It’s a 12 episode show, and sometimes as early as episode 4, you get an episode telling you what has happened in the series so far. Like do they not want you to watch the first half of the show? I know it’s a necessary evil, but that doesn’t mean I can like it.
