** The SequelSeries, ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'', has been taking a different approach to avoid this: Since the manga is released monthly and its first 10 chapters adapt the events of ''Anime/BorutoNarutoTheMovie'', the anime started by covering the events before that, focusing on Boruto's early days as a student of the ninja academy, all to allow for more time for the manga to advance.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' has three notable points that were to let the manga material get ahead for a few weeks: Goku's travels across the Earth following the defeat of the Red Ribbon Army and wishing Bora back to life, Gohan, Piccolo and Krillin's encounter with Garlic Jr. and Goku competing in the Other World Tournament.
** The filler after the Red Ribbon Saga is especially notable in that it was actually properly set up by the manga. In the last chapter of the Red Ribbon Saga, Master Roshi tells Goku to continue training by travelling around the world and that, while travelling around the world, Goku will have many adventures and a lot of fun. In the next chapter of the manga, there's a time skip and Goku has already completed his journey around the world; the adventures mentioned by Master Roshi are never shown in the manga. This whole sequence is basically the manga giving the anime an excuse to do a series of filler episodes.
** This actually happened again with the Cell Games, where Cell, after attaining his Perfect form and trouncing Vegeta and Trunks, decides instead of killing them there to leave and tell them to train for 10 days so they can participate in his tournament so he can fight them again. This gave the anime an excuse to add some filler before the end of that saga.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' has three several notable points that were allowed the anime to let capitalize on large stretches of time the manga material get ahead doesn't cover and write its own original stories:
** The very first occurrence of a filler sequence is after Goku departs to search
for a few weeks: Goku's travels across the Earth following Four Star Ball after the defeat 21st World Martial Arts Tournament, where Goku encounters Colonel Silver early, fights the Pilaf Gang again and spends an episode or two with Chi Chi and the Ox King (all at the same time!).
** Easily the most common excuse for filler sequences are manga time skips where characters train and prepare for an upcoming battle. It would be used in ''Anime/DragonBall'' where characters train for the 22nd and 23rd Tournaments, and in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' it appears during the build-up to the arrival of Vegeta and Nappa, the arrival
of the Red Ribbon Army Androids and wishing Bora back to life, Gohan, Piccolo and Krillin's encounter with the wait until the Cell Games. These episodes typically feature characters gaining new fighting insight, introduce some characters slightly early, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking or have them take driving lessons]].
** The
Garlic Jr. and saga occurs after the conclusion of the Namek storyline. This is particularly significant as the conflict with Frieza was ''right up'' against the manga by only a couple of issues, with the episode of Goku competing in transforming into a Super Saiyan being the closest the anime ever got to overtaking the source material, necessitating the filler to give some breathing room.
** The last significant filler sequence is
the Other World Tournament.
** The filler
Tournament that occurs after the Red Ribbon Saga is especially notable in that it was actually properly set up by the manga. In the last chapter of the Red Ribbon Saga, Master Roshi tells Goku to continue training by travelling around the world and that, while travelling around the world, Goku will have many adventures and a lot of fun. In the next chapter of the manga, there's a time skip and Goku has already completed his journey around the world; the adventures mentioned by Master Roshi are never shown in the manga. This whole sequence is basically the manga giving the anime an excuse to do a series of filler episodes.
** This actually happened again with the
Cell Games, where Cell, after attaining his Perfect form and trouncing Vegeta and Trunks, decides instead of killing them there to leave and tell them to train for 10 days so they can participate in his tournament so he can fight them again. This gave the anime an excuse to add some filler is defeated but before the end appearance of that saga.Buu.

* ''[[GoldenAxe Golden Axe II]]'' for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis was made a year before the proper arcade sequel (''Golden Axe: Revenge of the Death Adder'') was released.

* No other manga series has the distinction of [[AvertedTrope averting]] this trope the way ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure JoJo's Bizarre Adventure]]'' has. Published in 1987, it was one of the longest running manga series without a TV anime adaptation, that is, until 2012. Keep in mind that other manga series typically gain their anime adaptations in about 1-5 years or so, all while the manga/anime gap for ''[=JoJo=]'' is ''25 years''! The advantage of waiting so long means that [[FillerArc Filler Arcs]] won't be an issue for quite some time and Creator/DavidProduction can make great use of {{Foreshadowing}}, making nods to things and events in past Parts that canonically debuted in future Parts. It also helps that there's a 2 year gap between the first airing of each season[[note]]Parts 3 and 4 in their entirety from the manga are each considered their own seasons in the anime. However, Parts 1 and 2 together are considered a single season[[/note]], so even though Creator/HirohikoAraki is publishing ''Jojo'' monthly, the team at David won't outpace him any time soon.

* The ''Manga/FruitsBasket'' anime was adapted early on due to its popularity, and finished airing five years before the manga ended. As a result, it only covers about a third of the manga's story (barely seven books' worth of material). The final episodes are about an arc from the beginning of volume 6 that was shifted back for narrative purposes Kyo's inner struggle with his true form, and Tohru learning to accept him for who he is. To be fair though, another reason ''Fruits Basket'' only had 26 episodes if because Creator/NatsukiTakaya broke her drawing hand while working on the eighth book, leading to her taking a break from it. If the anime had gone past 26 episodes, then it's likely that it would've overtaken the manga.

* The anime version of ''Manga/ZatchBell'' ran at the same time as the manga version it was based on. Unfortunately, Makoto Raiku, the author of the manga, broke his hand, forcing the manga version to go on hiatus while the author's hand healed enough to allow him to draw again. The anime overtook the manga as a result, so the anime diverged from the manga for its final episodes. Some aspects of the anime made it into the manga once Raiku resumed drawing, the most notable being [[spoiler:Zeon's ultimate spell and the location of the final battle between Sherry and Gash]].

Another option could easily be to just [[{{Padding}} pad the episodes out]] and [[InactionSequence slow the story down]]. This was common in the ''Manga/DragonBall'' series, which unfortunately [[LostInTranslation meant that many people thought the manga was exactly the same]] or that [[MisBlamed Akira Toriyama's writing was at fault, when in reality the pace of the anime was out of his hands]].

Unfortunately, unpopular or unwelcome [[FillerArc filler arcs]] and episodes may often be {{MisBlamed}} as being the fault of the original creators, when in reality said creators almost always have nothing to do with said filler plot. Some fillers that were better received by fans are often cited as being opportunities to develop lesser characters (this helps a lot with anime that have a cast size near [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters the size of the production staff]]).

* The popularity of ''Manga/BlackButler'' caused it to be adapted way too soon and the anime wound up going in a totally different direction than the manga. Only 9 of the 24 episodes from the first two seasons were adapted directly from the manga; however, a new season in 2014 was based on the manga once again.
