Why do you people complain so much about them being fillers?
They go right with the story so they may as well not even be fillers.
just stop bitching about useless crap.
Enjoy the show. jeez.
I know I do. I'm just glad to be watching any episodes. ^_^
Definitely no a good chapter, given the rythm we had with the story..., but it's reasonable for Kishimoto to take some time to better serve us with the upcoming shippuden episodes, which by the way must be amazingly done to meet up with the quality material that the Manga threw at us.
Well, the anime was starting to get really close to the manga again, so this was to be expected. My guess is they'll do a series of episodes of going to the Land of Lightning before actually getting there and meeting Killer Bee.
