Would you agree that Best Wishes is the worst anime season?

Yup. Best Wishes may be the worst, but the whole anime is generally terrible.

We need an anime that's based on the manga or at least follows the same sort of structure. Multiple characters/story arcs, actual characters with unique personalties and development, less filler and formulaic episodes (TR doesn't have to show up in every episode).


Filler doesn't mean it's automatically bad. The entirety of shows like Sailor Moon, Cowboy Bebop are basically 90% filler. The new HxH arc has done filler that makes what happened in the manga make more sense and bond more with the side characters who are about to be killed off.

They HAVE done all of these, they just can't make up thier minds when a new arc starts. There is absolutely no reason why the current anime can't be like this all the time. And you want an anime based on the manga? With THIS staff? So they can screw that up too?

That's impossible because it's not based on any manga or other work. People need to learn what filler means.

It's filler in the sense that some episodes and arcs are made to stall until the new generation comes out. The anime does have its important episodes, but it also has more than its fair share of pointless episodes.


Filler is an episode in an anime that does not appear in the manga it's based on. They're used to buy time if the anime gets too close to being caught up with the manga that's being released before it.

It's not filler in any sense because the anime is not based on a manga.


You could just not be any more wrong. First off, filler isn't a term that applies just to manga, so that just kills your whole point.

It's pointless, unneeded episodes/stories that play no role in the big picture of the entire plot as a whole. Any episode that had any sort of development referenced later isn't filler. And BW certainly made a point to make almost every episode relevant.

I dare say some of the "filler" in Johto was cannon, if only because it was referenced in Misty's flashback before she left the group.<_<
