Cba viewing a video

Just stay out of threads discussing till you've seen the most recent episode or something. Of course there's the chance of things like Twitter spoiling it up eh

I read somewhere that spoilers supposedly didn't actually decrease enjoyment, but actually increases it, or something, in the news a few months ago.

Normally I would look into that more, but I'll just say my gut tells me that science is just wrong, wrong, wrong. Actually it's probably right somehow for someone, but I refuse to accept it.

In the meantime, I will continue to enclose my stuff in tags. Someday maybe the streaming website will enclose spoilers automatically based on what you have and haven't watched yet. I'll accept that science! And the patent on that! You head it hear first!

I guess I have a blessed personality, spoilers really do not ruin a show for me.
This is how I deal with spoilers :

Spoiler that something awesome is going to happen : "Ooo, that's awesome, I'd like to see that."
Spoiler that something sad or stupid happens : "Well, no point in watching this anymore. Thanks for saving me the trouble."

There is one type of spoiler that I don't like though, that is mystery spoilers. I like to figure those out for myself, it's like playing a challenging game. You can't improve your skills if someone else is playing the game for you.

I try to use spoilers. And if future notes I write Massive spoiler in RED!And use the spoil function!

Dont read the forum until the episode airs!

After watching the video there was no examples. BTW comment (quote) about using spoilers if somebody ruined something! Again if it;s that bad stay away until ready!


If a majority in the forum is already commenting well that's it the cat.s out of the bag!


How do you do the spoil function?

Spoilers never bothered me. I don't even get upset if some one spoiled an anime or manga before I watch it. Strangely enough, I'll still watch the anime and read the manga.

not bothered me either, even if i know what is going on in the next episode, i still enjoy it, every one has different feeling about one certain thing.


True indeed.

I think everyone is kinda missing a main problem here:

-Yes, we need to be up to date on the material and have no right to bitch if we're not.

-Yes, we need to watch the episode first then scroll down to read comments.
(I do while outro song is going on)

-No, spoiler buttons don't need to be put into effect for commenting on the current episode.
(eg. "So-&-so died gruesomely at the hands of What's-his-name!")

The problem lies when people know where the story is headed and feel the need to talk about it on the anime comment section!

Why?

Seriously, why??

Isn't there a Manga comment section in the forums and Manga chapters section?
Why do you feel the need to spoil it for others?
I personally don't like to read manga because i read comics, so i watch my Japanese fiction.
It's not that i'm not caught up, i just don't read it.
All this being said, i once expressed these same sympathies before only to have a bunch of people DM me spoilers just to troll like some babies trying to be badass.

I guess my point is not everyone reads manga. Some "spoiler trolls" feel justified for their actions because they think everyone should be caught up and up-to-date.

If you all love/like these stories then why ruin them for other people.
Like someone said before, 'why have someone else play the game for you.'
Spoilers are harmless to some, like the majority of previous comments, but i personally despise them.
Let me come to my own conclusions, my own thoughts, my own feelings and my own ending.

Thank you

I am not joking about this: I was reading "Another" (and this is spoiler free, so don't worry) this guy sitting next to me in class likes manga, and asked if he could see the book I was reading. I said "Sure, but please don't spoil anything for me, I'm only on the second chapter, I would really appreciate it if you didn't spoil anything"
"Ok"
2 minutes later, gives the book back. He immediately says 3 words, and those words summed up the entire ending for me -_-

This community does pretty well with the spoiler tags.

I HATE spoilers. So I avoid everything to do with the show I am watching until I have caught up.

I just deal with them. Though they do make me want to smash my head on a rock until I forget them.
