I got Death Note spoilers, hadn't even planned to watch it for a while, but after I got spoiled, I watched it immediately and proceeded to be shocked by it anyway. Good stuff. Got Clannad After Story spoiled too but forgot as I was watching it and cried anyway. Even better. And just the other day I got Guilty Crown spoilers, so I guess I have to watch that soon too.
Basically, spoilers make me want to see how things lead up to said spoilers. I hate getting spoiled, but I'm not going to avoid watching something just because I know what's going to happen.

Back then people who saw School Days warned not to see it because they watched it for you and so you don't have to but today that's the main reason why people see it and indulges its shitty-nes. SD is the best example where anti-hype actually works, even I hate it with passion.
DarkPaladinX said "In fact, I can easily site Black Bullet from the spring 2014 anime season had establish the anime trend in America where the fandom more hostile towards anything moe or loli. On the other hand, I can also site Haikyuu!! and Free! where the trends are more favorable towards bishonens and sports anime in America. If you ask me, Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! is WAY more liked in the American fanbase than Kancolle." and I agree with him 201%
Ah, it's a miserable feeling. When first reading a spoiler I'm like, "WHOA, really?!" only to realize an important certain scene has been revealed to me now.
I try to forget about it, and even pretended to deny it, but that usually never works. But like I've come to understand after coming across so many spoilers: It's not about the ending, but the journey it takes to get there. So you can still watch up to that certain point mainly because you don't know *when* it's coming, and sometimes not even *how* it's coming, but you know *what* is actually coming. So the experience isn't totally ruined. It's all in how you look at it.
Really angry at first, especially when it's anime I'm currently watching. Last one was from One Piece
when I read that Ace dies ;_;
It was horrible, pretty much the worst thing you can get spoiled about - death of your favourite character. It takes all of your desire to watch anime. Usually I'm just putting anime like this on later.
I was checking on Youtube for a opening which I liked then scrolling down to the comments, some @$$hole had to ruin it by posting spoilers and I'm a bit pissed. I quite enjoy looking forward watching the anime.
Me being the idiot that I am, I always read about the anime on its wiki pages and look at character bios and other stuff! Which 99% of the time completely ruins it, and I pretend that I forgot what I read but it never works -.-
"I hate nice girls. If they so much as say hello, it stays on my mind. If they return my texts, my heart races. The day one calls me, I know I'll look at my call history and grin. But I know that's just them being nice. People who are nice to me are also nice to everyone else. I almost end up forgetting that...
Someone who's worked hard at being alone doesn't fall for the same trick twice. I'm a veteran at this, I'm the best there is when it comes to losing. That's why I'll always .. Hate nice girls."

If I accidentally read any spoilers, I'll try to erase it from my mind by not thinking of anything at all while watching it (rather crazy, I know, but it helps to certain extent). That's what I did to After Story, because I already knew the ending even before starting Clannad.

First of I don't read anything beforehand ever, that way you avoid possible spoilers, seeing one or 2 episodes is better than reading a review, and if an anime doesn't hold up with spoilers then it wouldn't hold up without them either and doesn't deserve to be seen.
Spoilers are irrelevant and people are whinny little bitches.
I usually try to avoid spoilers but it's kinda hard when everyone's seen the whole anime before me. I still watch even though I get spoiled but it takes out the element of surprise for me and rather then thinking "Maybe this could be why this is like that" or "I think he/she did it because this and that" I'm thinking "This is when that happens". *Sighs*

i actually look for spoilers most the time after 4 or 5 episodes i like knowing the ending and seeing how it gets to that point also i like to know if i guessed the end right after a couple of episodes
I spoil myself all the time. Usually if I am really interested in an anime, I would look up the wiki article and read it. All the information I find actually makes me want to watch the anime even more, to see what happened. Usually, I am still shocked/surprised.
I accidentally spoiled myself with the ending to Panty and Stocking two (or however long ago it was) years ago, but that was back when I told myself I would never watch it anyway so no worries. Then, just recently, a friend recommended it to me, so I figured, why not? By that time, I had forgotten whatever spoiler I chanced upon those years ago. I didn't even remember spoiling myself of the ending! Unfortunately, I suddenly remembered when I was reading Stocking's trivia page on the Wiki. Needless to say, I was pissed with myself, but oh well. What are you going to do? I still watched it to the end, and it was still enjoyable.
This has happened to a couple other anime, though this is the only instance I can really recall right now since it happened to recently.
I usually just keep watching. Most of the time its Youtube comments that spoil things for me. I'll look up the OST or something and there will be a top comment saying "RIP character name". It's my own fault for looking at the comments but I can't help myself sometimes lol.
I just watch it, but for me it gets extremely annoying. Knowing something is going to happen, is often extremely intrusive when I'm trying to watch something. "I know that motherfucker's gonna die, but when?" just keeps going through my head.
I had Steins gate, cowboy bebop, ano hana, code geass, death note, and angel beats spoiled for me. I spoiled myself a very tiny bit with cardcaptor sakura too.
Skimmed through some of the later episodes and saw kero, not that big of a deal whatsoever and not really a spoiler so much, but still.
angel beats ending was ruined for me and i had no further reason to continue watching it as i already know how it was going to end and who the guy was gonna end up with. Though you know whats the worse i was gonna watch Mahou shoujo madoka like that and everywhere even on reviews people kept on saying how theres a dramatic twist and how you'd never expect, it seems to be happy go getto at first but its not so when the twist came i was just like ._____. well i already knew something like that was gonna happen so i didnt get to enjoy it as much as i should have.
Argh. I hate it when it happens. u.u I usually try to avoid getting into situations where I'd read spoilers, like staying away from discussions on forums, reviews, etc..
But when it does, I think do either of two things: 1) I end up putting off watching it until I completely erase that memory from my mind.. 2) Go into denial mode and just pretend I never saw that spoiler and convince myself that whoever said whatever they said never said it at all.
I don't care. What's important is how they tell it. If an anime loses all attraction because you already know what's going to happen, then it's probably not a very good one to begin with. All of my favorite movies or shows I could watch over and over, and I swear I don't get amnesia between each watching.
I pause for a moment to process what I just read, and then attempt to flip the table my laptop is on. But in the end, I just go on with my day as usual.
Because you know what? Screw it. The damage is already done.
