Fairy Tail Fillers: Are They Worth Watching?

There is one aspect that creates the most controversy among people about Fairy Tail and that is the fillers. There are a total of 63 fillers in Fairy Tail, which is roughly 19%.

Some fans love them; others feel like a waste of time. If you want to see Fairy Tail without fillers but are curious what it's really about, follow the guide below and decide which fillers are worth your time!

Fairy Tail is an anime that has a love-hate relationship with many otakus. On the one hand it has amazingly animated and well choreographed battles, on the other hand there is no gripping plot in which the characters indulge in stupidity.

However, it can't be denied that despite the occasional slump, the show is memorable and has one of the best RPG mechanics in the anime. The characters are attractive and the soundtracks are fun.
