So I have a co-worker that's watching Naruto, he's at the beginning of the Fourth Ninja War (about time) and he's always asking me what's going to happen next. I love Naruto but I don't like spoiling the story, I just leave hints and tell him to skip the fillers. I'm already done with Naruto so I have to phrase my answers carefully but it would be cool to be able to talk to someone about anime.

What would you do? Are you the spoiling type or do you hold it in?

Depends on who I'm talking to. I generally tell them that if I answered the question it'd be a spoiler and that I'd hate to do that to them since they seem to be enjoying the show, and then ask if they REALLY want me to answer the question. If they still want an answer, I'll give it to them. Most re-think it and decide they don't really need to know.

I don't spoil and I don't discuss anime with people who like to spoil. I don't see why some people like taking away the suspense.

Sometimes spoiling is a good thing. And anyone who thinks otherwise has never played Resonance of Fate.

I prefer not spoiling things, and if I do I try to sound like I'm lying so they think what is going to happen won't.

Ex. I read the Harry Potter books and before the last movie came out, people asked me, "What's going to happen?" or "How does it end?"

I don't spoil nothing!
What's the point if they're already going to watch it

It depends. Does your co-worker wants to know who he ends up? If it is Sakura, then tell your co-worker. Make your co-worker angry. So yeah, good move on telling your co-worker to skip the fillers. Reason why I stop watching Naruto and just read the manga instead.

If he wants to spoil it that much let him Google it and do it to himself. >.>

This is why i avoid reading or viewing material from things i haven't seen or am in middle of. Same with video games going online for 'help' is the final resort. To conclude on this post's topic don't spoil let your friend enjoy that first time magic of Naturto i still enjoy watching it over i really should focus that energy into new stuff but Naruto is pretty bas ass.

In my experience I don't spoil things all that much unless people are cool with it.

However

When I was discussing my favorite character from the SAO game "Lost song" Yuuki. She was kinda spoiled about her... well...



Was spoiled entirely from my friend by accident because he was discussing characters and conveniently that happened.

Kinda made me not want to watch SAO tho I'll still somehow find a way to watch it and forget this and then see it happen and then become sad.

There are a few cases where spoiling may actually help the person enjoy the work.

For example Blood C : First 5 episodes are dull and boring as fuck, last 7 episodes are an adrenaline filled gore fest.

Yah. I especially feel you about the the video game part. The best part about video games as a medium of entertainment is that you can truly make the experience your own. I wouldn't play the same way if I already know what's going to happen. That being said, I do replay games all the time, but I'd like the first time to be my own experience.

I'm bad with spoilers because I don't have any friends that watch as much anime as I do. When they ask me for anything about any anime I've seen... well stuff just starts comming out.

I'm trying to stop doing this but its hard.

Oh and man was i pissed when a friend spoiled Clannad After story for me.
