Naruto: I only watch Naruto FOR the fillers. Can't stand Sasuke, only sound ninja I could bare were the three sound ninja in the exams, and Orochimaru (AKA: Snake Humper) killed them off. The Akatsuki is just as, if not more annoying than the sound ninja. Sakura gets mildly interesting once she gains the ability to physically pound the unholy hell out of people, and just as quickly as her interest came, they took it away and she again became the spare wheel.
I'll admit, I'm not the type of anime fan that will instantly bash a filler episode like most will ("It's not following the manga directly and is changing the character's design-" AH SHUT UP!) But the fact that the only reason I watch a series for its fillers, and "supporting support" characters is a bit of a wake-up call. I have the Shonen Jump where the original story of Naruto was feature, and honestly, I would much prefer that version for a multitude of reasons.
Bleach: It's good, the filler episode are fun to watch as well, and I have no problem with them. The one issue I do have with Bleach is that I wish they stuck closer with what they started with, which was Ichigo suddenly being forced into the world of Hollow Hunting. The way the series has gone isn't bad, it's good to be honest, I just like the earlier episodes more than anything.
And as Seph' said, Ichigo is pulling a Yusuke.
Elfen Leid: Only seen episode one. And holy damn was that a blood fest. Couldn't watch the other episodes... Anime Network wussed out and only showed Episode one... The Cowards.
