Well anyway apparently this
http://anime.webnt.jp/programs/view/57
shows what the names of the next couple of episodes are
and from them you can determine
Spoiler for Speculation about future episodes:

Any way there is a subtle difference between a self contained filler episode and a several filler episode arc.
If we look at it logically, the disadvantages of being a filler arc over a regular arc are:
1. Possible stagnation in plot or character development
2. Continuity errors with events further in the series
3. Making viewers wait for regular arcs to be animated
4. Lesser quality than regular material
5. Problems with characterization
If you have great writers you can minimize the risk of 4 and 5 while a good relationship with the original author can minimize 2.
In a best case scenario there are even methods of overcoming 1.

Anyway at the moment the possible biggest risk will actually over exaggerating the humor considering what we've gotten before.
However I think evidence suggests (Loke vs Gajeel etc) that the producers have a decent relationship with the original author.
Anyway these are my thoughts on why it may be safe to remain cautiously optimistic. Although I do admit my hit:miss ratio for filler is higher than a lot of people.

I don't think there would be a problem in quality or plot advancement (Fairy Tail's plot progresses in a spiraling fashion, so there's a lot of room for filler), and there's only one arc to be animated, so #3 is out too...My main concern is that the characters will probably be out of character, which can look very bad, because the show is character-driven. Still, I keep my hopes up, as long as it doesn't last more than six months

Anime original, but it's not like it's the first time the anime's given the characters more detailed backstories than the manga did. Maybe it'll be contradicted in future manga chapters, maybe it won't.

Erza's victory speech (about knowing which armors are best for which situations) would've been more convincing if the script writer hadn't just made her pull out the Heaven's Wheel Armor and not even use its ability, followed by the Giant's Armor for close combat.

more filler arcs means more manga stuff will be animated... so it's actually great news! but for a manga-reader, of course I'd love to see the manga chapters animated instead.

but then we can't have everything in life.

If the lizardmen are so great at power-copying, Daphne should've just had them copy Natsu, and use them to power the Dragonoid. It'd be only slightly more broken than introducing an army of Geminis in the first place.

Other than that, there'd better be a damn good explanation for Gray's behavior once this is over.

The silent city and dragon research are a good idea, but I can't say the same about Daphne (random to no end) and the lizardmen (not the most innovative character, with an overused and already used ability at that).

OTOH, the latest episode was actually pretty good. Some decent fight animation, and more spotlight for some side-characters. I especially liked Elfman one-shotting Gray with a Falcon Punch

In retrospect, Erza should've just targeted one of the Dragonoid's wings instead of going for the cockpit. Shredding the membranes would've been relatively easy, and would've stopped it from reaching the city. (Daphne even announced that it couldn't walk properly earlier.)

I cant really complain about the fillers since they are fillers regardless of the series. The fillers are not to bad though I am sure other would disagree but I actually look forward to the next episode.

so we won't have a canon episode until 76... i just hope the next episodes have better filler than the Gray one

i'm looking forward to hearing the seiyuus for the next arc characters, especially Kazuhiko Inoue and Hiroki Touchi's roles
