    Spoilers?

    Lately I realized that I enjoy the chapters much more if I follow the spoilers. It's like... reading the chapter really slowly over days for me, How about you?

    Re: Spoilers?

    I don't read them, they.. well, they spoil the chapter for me. Which they're supposed to do, I suppose But I tried it a few times and I just noticed I enjoyed reading the chapter less.

    I only take a sneak peak if there are spoilers on early tuesday, because by the time it's friday I almost forgot what it was about. (that's dutch times)

    Re: Spoilers?

    I only read them if the manga is in a part that i'm not interested in, like flashbacks for example. The only reason i look is to see if it's going to get back to the good stuff this week or not.

    Generally I'm of the opinion that they take away from the impact of events though so i like to try and avoid the spoiler section.

    Re: Spoilers?

    Well in the past I didn't really like reading it because I hated being spoiled (well I still kinda hate it unless I want it and I can do it myself^^) but since I started reading them I'm always excited if there are spoiler and I'm still excited if the chapter is out. In some weeks I don't have time to take a look at them but as soon as I get bored I take a look.
    Although if the spoiler are too detailed (all pictures, complete translation...) I only take a peek at it.

    This way there are not only the few minutes it takes to read a chapter but something more^^.

    Ohh although many people might hate for the next comment:
    I like some of the fakespoilers too. So I have something to read (I know many will say that I should read something else a fanfic etc.). But they must either be very good or so bad it's funny again.
    The fakespoilers or at least the possibility of a fakespoiler rises the tension somehow (you want to know if it's true).
    Shh I think I'm the only one who thinks about them that way^^

    Re: Spoilers?

    Well part of the reason fans read spoilers is because they can't wait. But bthen once they get spoilers, it sometimes makes them even more impatient so that kind of fails lol

    Another reason is that some fans actually like the fake spoilers as well. They enjoy the hunt for the "actual" thing and they enjoy whatever nonsense some people can come up with.

    Me personally, I don't enjoy spoilers much simply because they're usually either too short, or vague. By the time a full spoiler comes out, I might as well read the chapter lol

    Arguably though, spoilers IS what makes the Naruto section most populated. When there is no chapter/spoilers, you can see a noticeable decrease in forum activity in the manga section

    Re: Spoilers?

    I think spoilers are awesome. I am way too impatient to wait for each chapter and the spoilers help fill the gap between raw releases and chapter translations. I sometimes like reading fake spoilers if they are well done, but i can certainly live without them.

    Re: Spoilers?

    Reading Naruto spoilers almost equals to reading a full chapter. So if it takes 2 minutes per weak at most - why not.

    Though, I'd love One Piece to have spoilers as scarce as Naruto - as of now, 9-12 campics are too much.

    Re: Spoilers?

    One reason I dislike spoilers is because half the time, the images scanned are of the "punch line' of the chapter so when I read the chapter, the punch loses it's buildup and stuff >.>

    I mean, I can't wait for stuff too, but I don't read the whole 5 ending chapters of a book if I can't wait for the ending(I only read the last 5 lines )

    Re: Spoilers?

    Well, buildup is a arguable term concerning Naruto

    5 lines? That is so familiar. Even when I know I will regret it, a quick peak is almost unavoidable. Unless the book is too interesting to turn the page before you have read it whole

    Re: Spoilers?

    If reading spoilers is like reading a chapter, do people actually read the chapter itself once it's out? O_o

    Well more like the "punch" of the punchline then. For example, I do believe Tobi's Sharingan was featured in one spoiler and I'm pretty sure Tobis' death as well as his Sharingan was supposed to be the punch of that chapter. Likewise, other such moments of the Naruto chapters are usually the images featured in spoilers so I'd rather not see them until I actually read what comes before and click that link that loads me the rest of the image >.>

    it's a question of preference really. I know some people who fast forward movies to their end as well and I know those who watch so many leaked clips that by the time the movie is out, they know every scene by heart lol

    Exactly, I made the mistake of taking a peak in the topic for chapter 437, found the picture and reason of Naruto going 6-tails. When the chapter came out, I regretted that SO much So nowadays I only take that peak when there's nothing possibly epic going to happen.

    Re: Spoilers?

    I try not to, it kind of ruins the impact of actually reading the chapter page by page

    Re: Spoilers?

    I cannot resist, I'm a weak person
    Mommy always said that I'm too impatient for some things, and the agony for the spoilers is greater then my own reason.
    And I like to think about the whole chapter during the week in my free time, and I couldn't do it without spoilers (talking about nerdism, huhuhu)
