Yea, like many stated, just dont read it.

I dont read it.

But i agree with you, synopsis can be helpfull, they should do it spoiler free, and this is not that hard...

Like ppl say, don't read them. Similar to comments, don't read them before you watch the episodes (why ppl doing that and say they get spoiled. Stupid).

I've been on CR for years and I love the service they provide for many reasons like the fact that they keep supporting the anime industry. However there's one thing I've never liked about CR and that's their episode synopsis for each and every freaking episode where I've gotten spoiled countless times of what's gonna happen in the episode I'm about to watch.

So I was wondering have you gotten affected by this, what do you feel about this?


I personally think they should just have a show synopsis but NOT a episode synopsis.


I don't really get affected by it, because I don't have a compulsion to read the synopis and don't have a problem just ignoring it.

On the rare cases where I do read it, it's usually because I'm trying to verify if it's an episode I've seen yet, and it usually works for that purpose. What I've learned by reading an episode synopsis usually doesn't contain the level of info that would spoil the episode for me.

This is the most non-problem I've read today. I'd try exercising some of that self-control we all have and simply avoid it.

THat may not be a problem for you, but the problem for me and many others like me is due to us using big screens so we'll see the spoiler before we watch the video no matter how we do it. I've even talked to other people I know about this and they have the same opinion as me. All I want is for CR to make shorter and more cryptic episode synopsis

Yes. They left UBW out on the front porch overnight.

CR has been an offender, occasionally, when it comes to spoilers. Like one time, there was a yellow banner that revealed something off Naruto Shippuuden regarding Madara's character.

I can't remember exactly what. But I just know people complained about it, and they took it off.

The screenshots for each episodes; this has been a problem for me, as sometimes it reveals what a character is doing or the place they're in.

Or you just don't read the synopsis, obviously.
Posted 5/9/15 , edited 5/9/15
I think i've been spoiled once or twice by it - but it was such a minor deal that I don't even remember what shows they were or why I was spoiled. So, yea, I understand the complaint. However, the descriptions have helped me far more than they've hurt. I'm very particular about what kinds of episodes I like to watch sometimes, and the descriptions are quite helpful in that regard.

So I'd prefer it if they keep the episode synopses. They're fairly unobtrusive anyway. You kind of need to go out of your way to read them, which I think is a good way to handle things.

yeah i feel the same way too , i mean if the episode synopsis tells you whats going to happen, whats the point of watching it? might as well read every episode synopsis for every episode then

I noticed before a couple places on here where the synopsis actually is completely wrong and the event(s) described in it don't actually happen. I don't remember which show it was, but I remember one saying something would fall from the sky after a wish and instead it just showed up without much explanation. I am typing something rather vague here of course, but I think you get what I mean that sometimes it just isn't even accurate, it is rather rare though.

I only ever read the series's synopsis the one time, then if it interests me I will just what the EPs as they come. The only time I may look at the synopsis for the episode is if I'm not sure whether or not its filler.

I read them all the time and never get spoiled but then again i don't care as long as it's not giving away the full episode in detail. Previews for the next episode or the op/cl show more spoilers than a simple synopsis will ever.
