>>78807729 I know that feel. It's like people forgot what the term actually means, and even then, I think wee/a/boos bitch entirely too much about it. Most filler arcs I've seen in anime were either as good or, in the case of shows based on weaker manga, better than the rest of the show. They're usually full of unusual ideas and characters you don't get from most of the series, because you can tell the writers are chafing from literally adapting the manga and want the freedom to write original stories in that setting.
>>78807729 if a ''plot'' show has an episode without any world building character developpement or lore that somehow impact the continuity, its indeed a filler used to let more time for its source material to expend like one piece/naruto /dbz or to strech out a season like avatar/SU/GF
>Cartoon is mainly slice of life. >Suddenly, a huge major episode happens that everyone loves and praises. >From that point on, if an episode doesn't meet up with that major episode's standards, it's automatically shit.
>episode actually adds to our knowledge of the story/characters/world or moves the plot forward >is bitched about by autists for not referencing some trivial detail or event from the previous episode that was almost definitely intended as a one-off joke, with complaints about "no continuity"
>>78808786 The episode that shows all the Titans dreams; Robin has Trouble in Tokyo but the lines are changed to the other Titans talking about how amazing he is
The episode with Control Freak, he threatens that'll he reboot the TTG Titans like the last ones. They show some clips of the original series while the TTG titans binge watch it and they become enraged the Control Freak cancelled it and admits that it was a mistake.
>That guy who gets pissy that a show that's primarily episodic and extremely loose with continuity contradicts previous canon >>78822431 People are just so desperate to get labels on things they ignore the fact they fit poorly.
>>78822078 No. Filler is the injection of material not part of the source material in adaptations. Therefore a series that does not adapt a published medium into animation does not have it. At most such series pad out runtime after their overarching concept stands. Which is naturally hard to prove as such things can and will be tied into the main plot, so they are not as isolated as real filler material.
>>78807729 I don't really understand the anger behind it, as even if their use is technically wrong, it holds the same basic meaning.
In true filler, the episode is made to pad out the length of the series so that more or the source material could be made, normally with little to no relevance to the original overarching plot. Most people use it now as a term to mean an episode that pads out the length of a series, normally with little to no relevance to the original overarching plot.
The only difference is why the filler is made: one is to allow for more source material, and the other is to allow the writers of the show either tie to write more story, or to make sure the already written story fills out an entire season.
