Here’s Every ‘Hunter x Hunter’ Filler Episode

The joy, and occasional yawn fest, regarding filler episodes, is an interesting phenomena. In case you didn’t know, filler episodes in anime are essentially those that can be skipped in a series. Normally, they serve as a break from the narrative (and potential chaos of whatever is going on). Which isn’t to say that they don’t have value. Sometimes they really help develop the characters further (and that’s appreciated in a very plot-heavy show).

And if you’re looking to watch, Hunter x Hunter (2011) can be accessed on a handful of streaming platforms, such as Netflix and Funimation. Hunter x Hunter (1999) is a little harder to access, but I’ve heard you can find many of the original episodes on YouTube.
