I hope they DO catch up and follow the manga afterwards, since i dont read the manga of naruto.
A filler arc would allow for the manga to progress further, because the anime catching up is a bad thing,the anime progresses faster then the manga, so if it caught up then it would need a filler arc, or it would be taken of the air.(or something...)
I really don't mind the filler episodes, but nothing that great can happen. I think the best idea for the filler would be to focus on some other characters, that would be cool. And after the filler, I can't wait for the Kakashi Gaiden saga, if you can't guess, Kakashi is my fav character!
