Manga are not spoilers for you personally...
Because you cannot spoil something you already have knowledge of...

But people that have read the manga can be a spoiler to others who only watch the anime.

I personally tend to prefer the manga over the anime, and since most often manga comes out before anime I can't exactly see the manga as spoilers to the anime, though I think it is odd when you go from viewing just one format and then suddenly the other shows you what's about to happen in the future, is does kind of take some of the fun out of it

I think it depends on the series and the way the story gets animated.
If it's a slice of life series with no drama involved, like Kimi to Boku, then there is not much to spoil about. (Would have mentioned Usagi Drops here if not for the ending in the manga which could spoil the anime in a different way)
The animation team could decide to give their own spin to a show by for example adding new characters. That can change the flow and perspective from the manga.
But mostly it depends on the person and as AsahinaInu said:

I still liked reading TWGOK from the beginning even though I saw the first two seasons and I also enjoyed watching season three. But sometimes I choose not to read the manga because I first want to experience them animated.

Any main source being adapted into anything is a spoiler. A video game can spoil the adaptation of the Manga or Anime, and vise versa.

Are books spoilers to their movies?



If you've not read the books, then yes. Someone discussing them with you would "spoil" the films for you.

This is why posting spoilers from a Manga in the comments sections for the Anime will land you with a ban.

Even when it's spoiler tag because it has absolutely nothing to do with the current episode?

I guess in a way you can call it a spoiler because both anime and manga are pretty similar, but the anime adaption usually changes around a few things. This also works the other way around to. I personally watch anime first because 9/10 times the manga is way better than it's anime adaption.

For example:

anime tends to change a lot from the original manga , a good example is "One Piece" where the beginning is way different in the anime than in the manga.
Another good example, may not be manga persay, but tends to show the same signs. I'm talking about "The Walking Dead" Where some of the main story and plot points are changed around, but still follows the story pretty closely.

Basically watching the anime first for me, let's me enjoy it and most times makes me want to read the manga to see what differences there are. of course 9/10 times I like the manga more but besides that This way I get to enjoy both the anime and manga instead of looking down upon one or the other. Of course this is just my theory.

If a manga is good and then it gets animated, like silver spoon, then i usually don't watch it. Sometimes a manga will be a little confusing and not the best, but they fix the problems with it in the anime. Most of the manga I read don't have anime so i don't have much of a problem. a lot of the time I will read the manga of an anime i watched because it continues further or the anime changed the ending, like Soul Eater

I much prefer reading manga most of the time. I enjoy seeing how the anime stacks up to the original content.

The comments section for an episode is for just that; the episode. Spoiler tags are supposed to pertain to that episode, for people who may not have seen it yet. You don't go to the comments section in episode 1 and start talking about a characters death that occurs half way through the entire series, it's just inconsiderate, even with spoiler tags.

There's a forum for the manga where you can discuss whatever you like about the manga, the same way that there's a forum for the anime.

Like others have said, I consider manga and anime two completely different mediums, even if the series overlap and/or they are very close in adaptation. Even so, the original author/artist's interpretation will never be completely captured in an 'adaptation', which, unless the manga artist is directly involved in the creation of the respective anime, is exactly what anime is (when regarding one based on a manga, at least). I find that I almost always prefer the original manga over an anime adaptation when it comes to that sort of thing. Watching an original anime and an anime like Naruto, for instance, is like night and day in terms of quality and heart. Even with a show as well adapted as Attack On Titan, I still prefer the manga.

So, to make a rambling answer short: No, I don't consider manga spoilers. It seems like an odd concept to me, but then again I started reading manga long before I was interested in anime. They're simply two different concepts entirely. Even if I started watching an anime and later found out it was an adaptation of a manga, I'd still want to see what the original work was like, and if there were any 'fillers' in what I watched. To me, that isn't spoiling anything, that's regarding two different works. I think the term 'spoiler' is pretty relative.

Like when I randomly read an IGN article that spoiled the ending to Man of Steel...BAKABAKABAKABAKABAKA. Spoilers in a headline? That's like...editing 101...not even, that's just common sense. Not so common...spoilers are indeed the bane of all things good.

honestly my only issue with manga spoilers is the assholes who spoil it for the anime watchers only in the comments section as was the case with places that had AoT episodes

If I have the chance I read the manga before the anime. It gives a much better summary on the characters and the story. Because some anime are so short they cramp allot in one episode and/or skip important pieces of the mange itself. And that way you won't understand some things.
