If anyone would know, how is the anime with the popularity right now?

Most of the last 100 episodes were fillers and quite frankly, there are now more fillers in Naruto anime than in Bleach anime and the latter one dropped quite badly.
Not to mention that the quality of the Naruto fillers is horrible (in my opinion).
So... what's the status of its popularity?

I think the ratings rose expanded since Madara's debut, but I'm hearing a lot of people express distaste for the generally erratic level of quality of the anime, even after Madara's debut, at least for the west.

Naruto's Anime is really popular as a whole. Not on One Piece's level, but it's in no danger of being cancelled or anything like that.

I actually don't mind Naruto fillers, at least they tend to have some half-decent fights (I liked the Sasuke Retrieval Team vs Edo Sound Four ones in particular). They were necessary since otherwise it would've caught up to the manga too quickly. I certainly haven't noticed a significant decrease in popularity, at any rate.

And the only reason Naruto has more fillers than Bleach is because it has more episodes in total.

Sasuke retrieval team vs. the Sound Ninjas isn't filler, actually- however I did enjoy it as well.

I am happy to learn that the ratings of the Naruto anime are good and that there seems to be no danger of cancellation. I got to know Naruto via the anime - the same as Bleach. We watch also Naruto together as a family, an experience I really miss with Bleach. My husband grew to like Naruto more now than Bleach. I still prefer Bleach but I am definitely also a Naruto fan now. Our daughter enjoys both a lot and can`t decide.

I still have a lot of gaps left to explore when it comes to Naruto but I already noticed that there are only very few filler episodes I dislike. In that regard Naruto has a better record in my book than Bleach. The faces are off sometimes but I often wonder if that has been done on purpose. If so it is an artistic choice I am not fond of but it doesn`t happen too often.

Hopefully the Naruto anime will continue also after the manga finishes - whenever that will be.

Well, it's not like I want the Naruto anime to get cancelled.
Bad ratings, however, could force the developers to focus more on the main, canon story, follow it more closely and avoid filler stories.
When I created the thread, fillers were... well, frankly, most of this year were fillers, fillers and more fillers. I get that they need to have some spare time, so that they wouldn't get too close to last chapter, but now they have tons of material, therefore, I'm really hoping that the fillers would be no more.

Just to clarify... fillers in Part 1 were good. Even some of the fillers in Part 2 were good. In fact, they created one of my most favourite Naruto characters, Guren. But you can't deny that some of them looked as if the creators weren't even trying anymore.
(Ostrich fillers, anyone?) And the quality on animation is sometimes really bad.

So next episode is going to be animated by the same guy who did Madara's badass entrance episode. I'm looking forward to it and hope there won't be much censorship.

It looks like we are starting a filler arc in February so enjoy while you still can.

lm glad l dropped the naruto anime honestly since the war started it was just bad, ontop of fillers after fillers yep, and wow another filler next month, lm glad Bleach anime stopped. Otherwise another filler would of really killed the show. Naruto animation is okay, fillers just bad, if you count the added filler flashback, it has way more fillers than bleach. Honestly naruto anime to me has dropped in quality more than bleach did.

Actually, when I last calculated, Bleach had more filler than Naruto percentage wise. Naruto has more in terms of quantity, but yeah.
