With the new SM anime coming out Summer 2013 I've noticed a lot of fans want to re-watch the old 1992 anime. Even the most hardcore of Moonies have a hard time trying to marathon through all 200 episodes. However if someone wants to get through the anime ASAP they can skip over the many filler episodes that plague it. These episodes tend to lean heavily on a formula and be entirely skip-able. So how do you know if an episode is a filler episode? Odds are that episode will follow this formula pretty closely.

Crimson means you can skip it no matter what episode it is.





★ The episode will start with a quick Episode Preview before the opening theme. Not all episodes do this depending on the episode director, so even filler episodes may start off with the the opening theme.
Opening Theme will play and will end with the episode title.
★ It won't be very long until a Character of the Day (CotD) is introduced to one or more of the main characters. This character has never been mentioned or shown before and will disappear as soon as this episode ends. (90% of the time they will have brown hair and brown eyes.)
★ Activity of the Day (AotD) and/or a Problem of the Day (PotD) is established. This is brought up before, after, or right when the CotD is. This can be just about anything, ballet lessons, arguing with a friend, a new store opened, etc.
★ CotD is targeted by the Baddies of the arc. They will be targeted in a rather generic way. They will have a beautiful dream or a pure heart or whatever and just the vague notion of one of those things is enough for the Baddies to rush in and attack them.
Bumpers/Commercial Break
★ The Baddies will set loose a Monster of the Day (MotD) to handle their dirty work, while whoever summoned the monster will hang out and will be very upset after their monster is inevitably defeated.
★ CotD is attacked by the MotD and will almost never have what the Baddies were looking for.
★ Now it's time for the fight scene of the episode which will be Sailor Senshi vs MotD. Especially grating episodes will pour on the stock footage at this point and will have the Sailors transform and attack one by one.
★ MotD is defeated, CotD is saved. Any loose ends from the episode will be wrapped up quickly here.
Ending Theme
Next Episode Preview

Pro-tip 1: Filler is most likely to show up through the middle of a season, which may be why it's so hard for you to finish an arc.

Pro-Tip 2: My advice to anyone trying to marathon through the anime is don't. It's much better if you limit yourself to a few episodes a day if you can.

Pro-Tip 3: By the time the CotD and AotD are introducted, if you find you just can't make yourself care then skip to the fight scene. If the MotD is introduced and you find you still don't care just skip to the next episode.
