This - a thousand times this. I get so annoyed in the anime section with the LN and manga readers who won't shut up and won't use spoiler boxes. Every season it seems that there's at least two or three shows where I essentially can't visit the discussion threads because the S/N sucks (most of the discussion is about the LN or manga) or because of spoilers.

OTOH, the misuse of spoiler boxes as a form of quoting doesn't make life any easier...

I've been criticized before for this opinion, but I feel that since this is a forum for the whatever anime, stick to anime. I see no reason whatsoever to spoil an anime series with a spoiler based on the manga or LN of that series. Even with spoiler tags I can see no good reason to post any information on where a story will go based on other media. Other than someone getting some kind of self gratification over knowing something most others do not there is just no point to spoil it.

I really likes a heads up for my favorite anime, however there's a reason why the spoiler tags exist. No offense to anyone who doesn't use spoiler tags for spoilers.

"KIDS THESE DAYS HAVE IT TOO DAMNED GOOD!!!

Back in MY day, we didn't HAVE much anime. So we RELIED ON THE SPOILERS TO TELL us WHAT to WATCH".

Ok. fuck it. That's just too damned hard.

Point is, spoilers don't do much to actually ruin a show.
Get over it.

And quite frankly, it's pretty fucking egotistical that you think the rest of the world shouldn't be able to openly discuss a show that's been on air for a while.. Fuck it. any while.

Your problems, and applying them to the rest of the world. And for what? A stupid fucking TV show. An episode.

Srsly????

And yes, it's true, back when anime was rarer, we typically figured we were coming into the game a year, two years, maybe even 5 years late. We assumed everyone else who watched anime watched more than us. Partially because of how little there was andhow difficult it was to find, and because, typically we found new titles via sharing it with out friends or by seeking out recommendations (which meant a synopsis, which is, admit it, a spoiler, and one designed to make you really excited about seeing all the cool stuff that happened).


So yeah. please stop bitching about spoilers.

only time i get annoyed is when manga/light novel stuff is mentioned before it is shown in the anime. but aside from that, eh.

Am I the only who loves spoilers? before watching an anime or reading manga I look for spoilers first.

I don't mind spoilers, actually if a manga or anime ish too long for me to finish in a day I would probably spoil myself by reading or watching the last chapter or episode available
