I usually spoil myself unintentionally lol

It depends what kind of spoiler it's, but it usually annoys me because when i spoil myself any death or something like that I can't take that moment of the anime seriously anymore.


On the same note as that, if I see someone I really liked who died then I spoiled myself that they actually lived, I begin to take the anime more seriously!

rarely do spoilers bother me, and honestly they can hype me up for a show even more. if i know a particular character dies, then i’m probably gonna be more on edge throughout the series wondering when and how they’ll die. or if it’s like a psychological thriller thing and it ends up all being in the characters head, i can watch the show from that perspective and see the hints towards the ending. watching things blindly is fun, but sometimes spoils makes the experience more immersive for me.

I’m pretty sensitive when it comes to spoilers. When something that I really enjoy I get very sensitive because it takes out all of the enjoyment. I can’t just forget spoilers for some reason.

When it’s a shitty anime I want spoilers. I want to be able to say “I already know what happens, I’m skipping this”. In the end I never skip it so that bums me out when I look back on it.


Seeing Gotoubun no Hanayome in your list, do you know who wins? What was your reaction?

I actually didn’t get spoiled (which is lucky). I finished the manga and a day after my friend told me who won. When I knew that she won I went mad in a happy way. The quint that I wanted to win didn’t win. I understand why she won. Anime only viewers are going to be mad at that ending.

I'm okay with them most of the time, especially if it's for a series I haven't watched yet or don't really care about. In fact, a lot of times I purposefully read through discussions searching for spoilers just to find something that might motivate me to finally start watching a certain series. Now if it's a spoiler on who dies, I'd probably be mad for a few minutes, but in the end it's not that big of a deal imo. Well, except there's this one death I got spoiled where the MC dies at the very end that I'm sad about...it's a long show too. But that was my own fault so I can't really get mad xD

98% of the time i really dont care. i like stuff based off of the overall experience rather then specific points, such as a major event or someone dying.

the 2% are things that look interesting to me and i want the full experience, but it's just a "come on man" kind of feeling when i come across a spoiler in this way.
hmm.

I always avoid them, even though I realized getting spoiled with one or two revelations never actually ruins my watching experience, even if it's a major one. Only if I know every details about the story, for example from reading the manga, then it does affect my experience and watching the anime become less fun.

I don't actively follow the manga, and I'm actually anime-only, but because the spoilers on who won was like the talk of the internet for like a week, it was inevitable for me to know who it was.

I was happy xD

If you spoil something, just assume that I'm either not gonna watch it for years, or never gonna watch it. It's been a year since I was spoiled on Death Note and I'm still not watching. Your Lie in April, Sailor Moon, there's so much I'm just holding off on from spoilers. Lol

I avoid spoilers for any animes I watch but if somehow accidentially find a spoiler, it depends what do I find. It can be showing some death scene of a main or supporting character, but it also may be the ending scene for an anime, or something completely different but important. I feel a lot more disappointed or discouraged when I see the ending scene, it just makes the anime kinda unenjoyable at this point.

I feel you! When the people around me literally go around spoiling me anime endings, I tend to like other scenes instead.

I'm that much sensitive to spoilers that when I see one, I feel empty inside that now I'll not be able to enjoy that particular moment as much as I would have before getting spoiled '_'
And due to the fact that I'm very concerned about spoilers, it gets stuck in my mind even when I only get a glimpse of it (like when I'm scrolling through comments)
In short, spoilers piss me off

I think that usually if you see a spoiler it won't stop you from enjoying a series but there are certain times when I've watched something and not knowing that it was coming has made it so much better or even if you figure it out yourself then (unless it was just plainly predictable) it can be really satisfying to see it happen. For example series like AOT, Code Geass and The Promised Neverland are really exciting going into blind and finding everything out as you go.

Depends on the spoiler. Depends on how much I'm enjoying the anime. Depends on how impactful it is in the overall story.

Sometimes I'm alright with it and sometimes I'm not. What bothers me most is if I accidentally spoil some parts of an anime and get roasted for it. There is no need to go apocalyptic.

The times I get bothered I just have to shrug it off. It's not the end of the world.

I knew way too much about what happened in JoJo Part 5 before I watched it and still bawled my eyes out for each scene lmao. I know a lot of major things that happen in the AOT manga, but I know for sure I'm gonna cry really hard either way ;~~;


omg me too with part 5. I anticipated certain episodes with trepidation knowing what was going to happen. Made their impact even harder when it hit.

I don't usually care about spoilers unless it is from a mystery. I'm pretty sure that I would not have enjoyed Higurashi and Umineko as much as I did if I was spoiled ahead of time knowing who the culprit is.

Usually I don't mind them, sometimes they even motivate me to go on with a certain series because i wanna see a specific scene or understand a spoiler. Lmao, I actually picked up some series because I was spoiled and it seemed cool. But again, it really depends, sometimes I don't want spoilers because I am too immersed in the story and I want to make up theories as I go on with it.

I definitely hate them and think that all platforms should aim for as much of a spoiler-free environment as possible.
That being said, if I do encounter a spoiler, especially if it's vague, I'll either consider the possibility that it was untrue or exaggerated or just find a way to appreciate the foreshadowing or unraveling of events prior to it actually happening. Still, I'm always very careful, as I'm of the opinion that knowing something beforehand will never enhance the experience.

it depends a lot on the show and the content of the spoiler. i always read up on the BNHA spoilers even though im not up to date with the manga and that never bothers me too much. i did get spoiled on death note and clannad after story and never went back to finish those. big spoilers that weren't obvious like major character death, betrayals, etc. could stop me from enjoying or finishing a show, but usually ill finish it anyways. spoilers about plot and smaller things never really bother me too much though.

I really dislike spoilers, (especially in shows where the spoiler gives the spectator another POV of what's happening) but I don't take it personally because I usually forget those and with that, I can continue my series "safely" from spoilers.

Apart from this site's forums i don't really have many or any at all for that matter sources of where i could potentionally get spoiled.
This being said i usually forget most of them by the time i decide to watch an anime that was previously spoiled.

Also no spoilers are not welcomed for an anime i'm really excited to watch.

There are only a couple of times i've spoiled myself intentionally though that is cause i never planned on reading the source material or finishing the anime.
I wanted to see if sakurasou novel is worse than the anime and how does it end, and it's just pathetically bad so yes the anime is better and i also spoiled the ending of TTGL cause i was pretty fed up with it by ep19-20 and wanted to see if i made the right decision of saving myself a couple of hours of torture to my brain and yes i did save myself some time gladly, though not of the torture cause the shite ending still pissed me off somewhat even reading what happened.

I spoil every show before I watch it. I have severe post anime depression if the ending is terrible so I don't let myself get that way. I have honestly enjoyed anime so much more since if started spoiling myself.

Watching shows like White Album 2 and going in blind made me quit anime for years.

I used to be insensitive and even completely unaware of spoilers back in the way. When I was lining up to get an autograph from Cassandra Lee Morris in Anime Los Angeles, I saw the Kyubey on her banner, and I said just one word "Incubator", and other people got upset that they "did NOT want to know" about that character. I deeply regretted so much, and I've learned that I should never spoil about anime ever again. So yeah, I'm pretty sensitive when it comes to spoilers because it takes away the experience of watching the anime when I get into them, and there wouldn't be a good point watching them.

When I was told spoilers, I was gutted and acted like it was the end of the world. So depending on the spoiler I react differently. If they reveal to me a characters death- I get pissed but when it comes to a new development within the story arch or a new character I won't mind. It just adds something to consider.

To be honest spoilers sometimes keep me motivated. For example, when I found a romance manga I always search the Fandom whether the end up together or not, but I don't always to that since it ruins the fun.
If the spoiler is a major effect on the anime/manga I will kinda get pissed tho. But I have a friend on FB that is my schoolmate and 1 year older than me that sometimes put manga spoilers, its really annoying.

Unfortunately, it's also not a coincidence that those three shows are some of the most-spoiled in the internet!

Those kinds of spoilers are rare, in my opinion, nowadays. I might want to read a spoiler of some sort like that one day, to be honest.

I have my anime senpai on FB as well who, on the rare times she actually talks to me, she gets enthusiastic that I let her spoil me (give me spoilers). It's very enjoyable and I like seeing people enjoy talking about what they like.

I would rather not be spoiled, but if I end up being, that's not too big of a deal. Hearing/reading someone saying what happens in the story is different from actually seeing it, with the animation, music, voice acting and everything, that's what makes the scene people spoiled to me before truly impactful.
Who are you and why do you show your hostility towards a complete stranger whom you've not once spoken with before. Are you seriously asking to get blocked? Well, if that's what your intent is; to tempt me into throwing hands with someone as lowly and insignificant as you, then i may grant your wish provided you articulate yourself a bit better when trying to spite a person of my wavelength.

It depends. If it's something I'm not really going to bother reading/watching in the near future, or whose outcome I think won't affect my enjoyment of the series (e.g. Haikyuu), I don't mind spoilers - in fact I actively seek them out.

But if it's something I'm super invested in, I definitely avoid places where I know spoilers will show up like the plague. Case in point, I've managed to avoid Kimetsu no Yaiba and Promised Neverland spoilers until right now, because I'm following the official English paperback release of the manga and thus I haven't finished either of them.

Spoilers are a mixed bag for me. If it's internal in the show, I'd very pretty annoyed. I really don't like it when things like previews or OP/ED spoil stuff.

Externally, it doesn't stop me from enjoying or hating on a series, but it does drain some of the emotional impact (or lack thereof) I would have had. Since my brain would be just waiting for the spoiler to show up. But, I'm not gonna get mad or anything; the amount of times I've spoiled myself due to unrestrained curiosity is pretty high, haha.
