Going through my daily websurfing routine I came across some spoiler pictures from Spice and Wolf II ep 0. Now, I’m as anxious as anyone to see the next episode and on the verge of looking for spoilers. But I hate them, I hate spoilers so much. I always feel like when I receive a spoiler the whole episode is ruined. It normally isn’t, and most of the time it doesn’t really detract from the experience. But beforehand I don’t know this, beforehand I worry.
I worry thanks to movie trailers. So often now movie trailers will contain the only good parts of a movie, or the best parts, and this really takes away from the experience. A movie whose good parts have all been revealed has nothing more to offer and loses much of it’s entertainment value.
I don’t think the spoilers I saw will ruin the episode, I’ll be happy to have my Horo stories back regardless. And really, the novel translation is available on the internet so I could read ahead of the anime anyway. But it’s hard reading a novel on a computer screen.
An additional little note, the spoiler pictures are early, wasn’t the OVA supposed to be released in a few days? Can’t wait for it to be subbed so I can quell my anger and anticipation. When will the first season go on sale in North America anyway?
