Naruto is an anime series based on the manga by Masashi Kishimoto. It is a fighting and adventure story about a boy who wants to become Hokage, the leader of his village. There are currently 220 episodes that have aired in Japan and 230 episodes that have aired in America. The series is still ongoing and there are no signs of it ending anytime soon.
Naruto has had many filler episodes that often take place between major story arcs or just serve as a transition from one arc to another. These filler episodes have been criticized by fans for being boring and pointless because they don’t advance the main plot at all. However, some people enjoy them because they provide more backstory for minor characters and develop relationships between different characters that wouldn’t normally get enough screen time in regular episodes.
The filler episodes were so popular with fans that Kishimoto decided to make a movie based on them called Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie! This movie shows what would happen if all of Naruto’s friends were transported back in time when they were younger (and they all look like girls).
