fact is I hate fillers because they are a waste of time, BUT i will take bleach's fillers any day over naruto's. They might not be on par with the regular story but it is ok i guess. On the hand watching naruto fillers hurts my eyes, im afraid if i had kept on watching them i would be blind right now. I also think somewhere in the middle of the fillers, they will show Aizen using the hougyoukou to keep some quality to the fillers. And Rukia coming back doesn't really hurt the manga that much because you still will get the same consequences like Orihime's jealousy of Rukia.

I suppose if the end of the fillers (and so Rukia's return to SS) was a while before the Aizen arc, then Ichigo would still be appropriately depressed.
