Then the Storyline would freaking suck. Anime is Based off of Manga. If you dont have Manga than the Anime's plot will go to hell. Ever seen Fullmetal Alchemist? Did you think the ending sucked? The same thing will happen to Naruto. It would have a Retarded Corny Ending with Naruto becoming Hokage or some crap... Here's an Idea, why not give some storyline to the fillers. Ever Seen Bleach Fillers? Thats not the same crap as Naruto Fillers. If you add a storyline to the fillers, sure you can make them good.
The only show out of the big three that have fillers I can stomach (and often enjoy) is One Piece, and it's because Toei is made of so much win.
I was just using Bleach as an example. Sure Bleach Filler's suck compared to whats going on in the actual manga but atleast they have a storyline regardless how retarded it may seem. Hell, an anime only watcher might actually like them a bit. Naruto on the other hand just went on pointless 2-3 episode missions for like 80+ episodes. The Naruto fillers Were worst by a long shot IMO.Bleach fillers are pretty close to the worst fillers of them all (naruto). They both come from the minds of the same dumb studio (pierrot). Adding a storyline doesn't always help, the bounto arc was AWFUL and long, and the recent fillers were even worse.
I never really got into the One Piece anime like that. But knowing how bad Naruto fillers were, I'll take your word when you say they were probably the best of the big 3...The only show out of the big three that have fillers I can stomach (and often enjoy) is One Piece, and it's because Toei is made of so much win.

At the moment, watching Shippuuden makes me laugh and cry at the same time. I mean, just look at episode 20 when Sasori launches them needles. Sakura and granny just dance around with their eyes closed for like two minutes. And that's not even fillers. Scary. I only watched Naruto fillers for a little while. Got to silly for me when suddenly this guy from the first episode appears and suddenly drinks something and becomes a tiger-man. Liek wut teh fuk. Manga > Anime, almost always.
But, Tmb04, I don't really think FMA turned out all that bad. I kinda liked it. That said, I have never read the manga. =/
You definitely need to go off of the manga for the anime to work, at least with story development. If you've ever watched the Rurouni Kenshin anime series after reading the manga, it's not too hard to see how bad it can get.
