Follow along with our guide to find out which Boruto episodes are anime-only filler and which ones are canon based on the manga series. Just like the its forbearers Naruto and Naruto Shippuden, Boruto is well on its way to becoming a filler-ific anime series.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations follows the journey of Naruto’s son Boruto as he attempts to follow along in his father’s ninja footsteps – only with his own set of problems to overcome. Unlike his father who was a largely an outcast growing up, Boruto is a bit spoiled and pampered thanks to his father’s now legendary status.
