As we watch this very unique series, I'm sure we noticed that there a few types of filler that have been used:
- Episodes that take place in a setting/arc from the manga that at the same time includes content NOT from the manga. (Examples: During Lougetown, Alabasta, etc.)
- Episodes/Episode arcs that are COMPLETLEY anime only which means (when talking about One Piece that is) it'll take place in a setting that'll most likely NEVER appear in the manga. These Episodes/Episode Arcs also take place in-between original story arcs (Examples: Millenium Dragon Arc, Rainbow Mist Arc, Post Alabasta Arc, etc.)
- Mini Side Story arcs - These take place during certain story arcs in the manga, but were only shown on cover pages of individual chapters. They mostly show what happens to certain (groups of) characters after they have said their goodbyes to the Strawhats or have been BEATEN by the Strawhats (whichever came first). Only two of these arcs have been animated (Buggy's and Coby and Helmeppo's Side Story).
- Back Story Fillers - These took place during Enies Lobby (before the Rocketman actaully crashes into Enies Lobby) in which they show what each individual member of Strawhats went through before actually joining).
- Boss Luffy Specials - These fillers have absolutley NOTHING to do with what goes on in the anime or manga. These take place in another version of the One Piece world where the setting is a (correct me if I'm wrong) little Japanese village known as Grand Jipang. You'll also see interactions between characters that you most likley would NEVER see in the actual story. These could air anytime during the anime.
Well I've blabbed on long enough.
My question to you guys is, which kind of fillers would you wanna see more
Personally, I'd like to see more Boss Luffy or more animated cover storys :happy:
