2. Does Naruto Have the most fillers in the history of Anime?

The Anime with most fillers is not Naruto but Detective Conan which has around 430+ filler episodes out of 1000+ episodes.

Naruto Anime don’t have much filler Anime at the start of the series.
As the Anime progressed it caught up with Manga and they didn’t have more content to produce. And that’s why we see too many fillers in the Naruto Series and a lot of Flashbacks. Most of the ending episodes of Anime were fillers due to that very reason.
