COMPLETE Boruto Filler List (EASY TO FOLLOW)

May I get a drum roll please! It’s not a secret that the Naruto and Boruto series have a tons of fillers. It’s a shame because that’s one of the driving forces that steer potential viewers away.

Both Naruto and Boruto are fantastic anime to watch, so what have we done to help you in your quest of navigating through the Anime Canon and Filler episodes? We’ve prepared you with an entire blog dedicated to just that!

Today, we present you with the Boruto Anime Filler List and Chronological Order. This list is easy to follow. IN the charts, I’ve included every episode in the Boruto series. The rows in red are the filler episodes, so please keep that in mind.

I’ve done everything twice to make sure you are aware of what you’re watching. I’ve also added some background information to each Boruto Arc.

If I forgot to mention anything, please cut me some slack. I had to compare the episodes to both the manga and anime. Everything mostly is related to the anime, so you don’t need to hold your breath. The manga is great, but I am well aware that Boruto has a large anime fanbase!

Without further ado, let’s get started!

1. Academy Entrance Arc (Ep. 1-16)

The Academy Entrance Arc is an Anime original arc that takes place before the start of the Boruto Manga.

This arc introduces the previous and next-generation characters. These fifteen episodes focus on Boruto and his crew trying to put an end to a bizarre series of events that take place in the village.

People are randomly going off their rocker, and then losing their chakra. Now, we know how important chakra is in this world, so this mystery needs to be solved quickly.

I don’t want to give you any spoilers about whom or why all this chakra is being drained, but I’ll leave you with this: Your enemies are sometimes your closest friends.

2. Sarada Uchiha Arc (Ep. 17-24)

This arc primarily focuses on Sarada. We learn more about her ambitions, goals, past, family relations, and even her weak points.

Basically, Sarada is having a major identity crisis and she doesn’t know how to deal with it. At such a young age, it’s hard to question everything—especially if you don’t know who your true parents are (definitely not attacking Sasuke).

I don’t want to see Sarada have the same character development as Sakura. If I had to be brutally honest, I was extremely disappointed in Sakura’s character in Naruto. She had so much potential, it was crazy! My expectations of her crashed as the Naruto series progressed.

Sarada, if you’re going to be the next Hokage, I want to see you grow stronger not only physically—but mentally as well.

3. School Trip Arc (Ep. 25-32)

Naruto wants the Academy to have nicer field trips, and his noisy son over here is casually throwing pranks left and right. Iruka cannot catch a break.

Let’s just say this was one hectic field trip. Where is their school trip? At Kirigakure or The Village Hidden in the Mist.

There is a good handful of fighting, so at least there’s something to look forward to.

4. Graduation Exams Arc (Ep. 33-38)

If you don’t know who Shino Aburame is, allow me to acquaint you with both. Shino is a calm and well-collected guy. He’s very straight to the point, and on top of that, he has a pretty emotionless face.

But overall, Shino is a reliable friend and is always ready to defend the people he holds dear to his heart.

In this arc of Boruto, the ninjas now are prepping for their graduation exams. Tests in all dimensions suck. And from my experiences, the proctors are either too loud or very judgmental. Who is the proctor of the oh-so-important exam? Shino Aburama.

5. Genin Mission Arc (Ep. 39-42)

Team 7 consists of three members: Boruto Uzumaki, Sarada Uchiha, and Mitsuki. The group is led by Konohamaru.

The three were initially named Team 3, but of course, Sarada and Boruto were at each other’s throats.

Once they both reconciled, they decided to rename their team after their parents.

This arc centers on Team 7’s first-ever mission. Now, although the main focus is Team 7, we also get to see how the other newly formed teams partake in their own missions. We also get to know more about the side characters of Boruto.

6. Byakuya Gang Arc
– The Entire Arc is a Filler (Ep. 43-50)

This is an enjoyable arc, so even though it’s full of Anime Fillers, don’t knock it till you try it.

The Byakuya Gang is an actual gang. wHo WoUlD hAvE ThOuGhT?

The members of this gang are noble thieves with owl-shaped masks. I’m not going to lie; it was hard taking them seriously during the fight scenes when they looked like they were ready to “Whoo Whoo’ me.

Anyway, we watch Boruto and Shikadai as they take on this group.

The Chunin Exams Arc has another name; The Versus Momoshiki Arc.

Momoshiki Otsutsuki is a Celestial Being who was a part of the Otsutsuki clan. She and another Otsutsuki came to Earth in hopes of draining life’s chakra and cultivating a God Tree in the process.

This arc starts off with the Chunin Exams which then leads to the Otsutsuki invasion. Yeah, I know. Wild.

8. Chocho Arc – The Entire Arc is a Filler (67-70)

This entire arc is dedicated to Chocho. Chocho loves food and will skip a training lesson if she has to.

She’s just like her father, the one and only, Choji Akimichi.

You don’t really need to watch the Chocho Arc, but it’s a great refresher to the series. Don’t get me wrong, I adore the main characters, but it’s always nice to see some of the side characters getting screen time.

9. Mitsuki’s Disappearance Arc (Ep. 71-92)

Mitsuki is adorable!  He’s a member of Team 7. Mitsuki is not a human in the flesh. He was made for the purpose of being one of Orochimaru’s clones.

My cinnamon roll is a synthetic human. Like the arc’s name suggests, Mitsuki disappears. He leaves Konohagakure.

It pains me to watch Mitsuki in utter turmoil. Mitsuki leaves right after receiving a confidential letter. As he is leaving the village, he ends up injuring two gatekeepers. Everyone in the village is in shock. This isn’t normal for Mitsuki.

Is he really a traitor? It doesn’t look like Mitsuki will be returning.

However, his friends stop at nothing to try to bring him back.

10. Naruto Shinden: Family Day Arc (Ep. 93-95)

Naruto Shinden: Family Day Arc has another title; Parent and Child Day Arc. The Hokage, our beloved Naruto, is authorizing the Family Day event.

If you miss Naruto, then give this arc a shot. It’s nostalgic and heartwarming.

Naruto finally has a family to celebrate with. Look at our boy growing up! I’m not crying, you are.

Another name for this arc is the Cursed Seal Arc or the Cursed Seal Infection Arc. Who is Jugo? He’s a shinobi that’s part of an unknown clan. He is being held by Orochimaru- you know, that one dude that gives me the chills.

I don’t need to tell you that anything linked to Orochimaru is bad news, right?

12. Steam Ninja Scrolls Arc (Ep. 106-111)

This arc follows Mirai and her S-rank mission. She’s a bodyguard of Naruto, our amazing Hokage.

Naruto gives her a mission. Mirai must safely escort and protect Guy and the former Hokage, Kakashi-sensei. I had to add sensei to his name, man. It’s an old habit of mine.

Mirai, Kakashi-sensei, and Guy are to inspect the border between the Lands of Fire and Hot Water. No one must know about this.

This isn’t really an S-rank mission, but a girl can dream. But it looks like this dream might quickly turn into a nightmare.

13. Konohamaru’s Love Arc (Ep. 112-119)

This arc is mostly a filler. We’ve known since the start of the Naruto series that Konohamaru is a true G. He’s always believed in Naruto, even when the entire village turned against him.

We love a loyal friend. No wonder Miss Remon fell for him.

Will Konohamaru finally find his destined soulmate? If he doesn’t, then I’m more than ready to volunteer.

14. One-Tail Escort Arc (Ep. 120-126)

Watch this arc if you are truly ready to witness Boruto’s growth in battle. Especially against an Otsutsuki.

This arc did not disappoint in the slightest.

Although this isn’t a filler arc, you can skip this, but I don’t recommend it. The One-Tail Arc is connected to the next Arc in one way or another, so please don’t brush this one off.

15. Time Slip Arc (Ep. 127-140)

There’s a lot to unpack in this arc, so you’ve been warned. Spoilers are down below.

One of the first things we learn about in the Time Slip Arc is that the Otsutsuki clan can time travel. However, two characters from the village are seen to have an exception to this rule. I won’t tell you who, but they belong to different generations.

You will see Sasuke a lot this arc, and perhaps the new abilities he has collected being the Shadow Hokage.

One of the major reasons why the fandom loves this arc is because Boruto gets to meet the previous generation, Naruto’s line, when they were kids.

Isn’t that adorable! AH! I guess I already spoiled one of the two characters that time travels. Whoops. Sorry about that!

16. Mujina Bandits Arc (Ep. 141-156)

Mujina Bandits is a group led by Shojoji. These groups consist of runaway shinobi or Missing-nin. These are ninjas that have completely abandoned their village and have no intention of returning.

This arc is important to watch because it’s a major turnaround for the Boruto series.

Konohamaru assigns Team 7 a mission. Standard, right? There’s nothing out of the ordinary, correct?  Well, this mission leads Team 7 to a bank robbery that is currently in action in the Hidden Leaf Village.

Who is robbing the bank? The Mujina Bandits.

Team 7 ultimately defeats the runaways, however, Shojoji escapes.

Will Team 7 be able to put an end to the Mujina Bandits once and for all? Or will they have an even greater obstacle in their path?

17. Kara Actuation Arc (Ep. 157-177)

Yo! The anime now has a nice pace. This is where things get wild. The battles are top tier.

This arc complements everything in the manga beautifully, so it sticks true to the manga. It’s more of an expansion of the manga, though.

It acts as a prequel for the upcoming arc, so do not skip this one.

The Kara organization is led by Ishhiki Otsuktsuki Kara’s main goal is to have a proper vessel in their possession. The vessel has already been discovered, but I don’t want to spoil you on that.

The organization has huge plans for the world, but we don’t know them yet.

18. Vessel Arc (Episode 178-187)

I didn’t like Boruto at the beginning of the series. But in this arc, the Boruto I hated is dead. Gone.

Obviously, he’s not literally dead—that would signal the end or near end of the series. However, Boruto matures in the Vessel Arc.

The Vessel Arc is also known as the Ao Arc. Kara’s vessel is now missing, and the Inners of Kara have been notified.

Jigen, or Isshiki, goes to Hell and back to have his vessel returned. I wished he stayed in Hell.

In this arc, we see Naruto and Boruto fight one another. It’s just for training purposes, but Boruto notices that Naruto is missing his right hand.

Will he go crazy after learning his father has a Scientific Ninja tool as a hand? Of course he will. He’s Boruto after all. He can only become so mature.

19. Kawaki Arc (Ep. 188-)

AHHHHH! I LOVE KAWAKI! Is it meant to say I wish he was the initial protagonist of the story?

Just think about it. How great would that be? At least give him a separate series Kishimoto!

The Kawaki Arc has changed the Boruto anime for the better.  We learn about Kawaki and his past in these episodes.  

Not only are we introduced to Kawaki, but also a few powerful villains.

My favorite part of this arc was the dynamic between Naruto and Kawaki.

Kawaki has no room left in his heart for trust. I don’t blame him for his past. However, Naruto tries to understand Kawaki, which I think is the most empathetic decision he could have made.

You can’t just become a father figure to an orphaned boy that’s been tortured for years in an instant.

It takes time. The most recent episode, Episode 218, aired on October 3rd, 2021. The arc in the anime has not finished yet.

What Do You Think About Boruto?

Boruto

And that’s a wrap from us! I hope you enjoyed this blog. I was a bit hesitant in adding too much in the brief Boruto Arc description. A lot of the Arc summaries online contained so many spoilers that I found myself bored through the series a bit.

I don’t want that to happen to you. Many people had their doubts about the Boruto anime, but man, this series has been blowing up the Anime Community.

On my For You Page on Tik Tok, there has to be at least five videos about Boruto. I mean, I’m not mad at that. The fight scenes are fantastic.

These recently aired episodes have phenomenal animation—I was so surprised. I’m also really glad to see more of Naruto now in the Kawaki Arc.

I missed our little Hokage. It’s been too long!
