Naruto Watch Order and Filler List

Naruto is a modern classic in manga and anime, often mentioned alongside One Piece and Bleach as part of the Big 3 Shonen.

There are three Naruto series with a total of almost 1000 episodes and 11 films so far. This guide will tell you where you can watch every episode and film of Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.

This shonen manga series by Masashi Kishimoto was adapted into an anime by Studio Pierrot.

Like many long-running series, especially those produced in the 2000s, it followed a ‘broadcast as it’s made’ format, akin to soap operas. As a result, there were several filler episodes or side stories since the source material from the manga wasn’t always available.

This is quite different from the approach of modern anime series, which are typically released and divided into seasons.
