    True fillers in the series (if we don't count movies etc.) are:

    1. Two episodes in Loguetown dealing with Usopp getting his new goggles and Sanji getting the Elephant Tuna.

    2. The Warship Island Arc, inserted after escaping from Loguetown, and before arriving to Grand Line. The part of manga dealing with Calm Belt was redone and put here.

    3. Several episodes in Arabasta where the Strawhats go across the desert to Yuba. Notable difference from manga is that Ace joins them on this journey and only leaves after the fillers end.

    4. A whole bunch of fillers after Strawhats leave Arabasta. First are five "character episodes", each highlighting one of the characters. Then three-episode Goat Island Arc, dealing with an old man on an island full of goats. Finally, the Rainbow Mist Arc, which I consider excellent.

    5. G8 Arc - inserted between leaving of Skypiea and arrival to Long Ring Long Land. I haven't seen this one, as the episodes I have are of very bad quality.

    6. Memories Arc - inserted between Davy Back Fight and Water 7. I have good quality episodes here, but didn't watch it yet.

    Theoretically, even if the manga would start to lag, the anime can keep itself for a while without fillers by animating the other title-page stories. I'd like to see Jango's Dance Paradise (they really should do that by now, as Jango just suddenly appears in Arabasta as a Marine, and if you haven't read manga, you have no clue how THAT happened.)
    I wasn't keen on the rainbow mist filler arc, but i'd highly recommend the memories arc, it was thoroughly entertaining. Warship arc was ok first time i saw it, but now it's like needles into my eyes and burning matches under my finger nails. Damn apis!
    Rainbow Mist was interesting, and well done for a filler however I disliked it. Why? One word: Nakama. Never take a reocurring theme and overdo it. You will ruin it for ever. These guys need to learn that.

    Someone remind me what the Warship Arc is about. I can't remember it at all.

    Ohhhh that one with the island where all those dragon things' skeletons are submerged underwater. That place. I remember that now. Wow, glad I forgot it though. It totally breaks continuity. Bah, some things are better off unremembered. At the time it didn't seem important, but if I were to see that now, I'd scream bloody murder.

    No wonder you said you'd never want to see it again.

    I liked the G8 arc more than the memories one(into the whole strategy thing between the crew and that commander dude...forgot his name).

    And Warship arc made a HUGE mistake. In that arc, Zoro cut through metal, which Ayato already said.
