I read the Lord of the Rings trilogy some years before the movies were announced or released, so I wouldn't call that reading ahead. However, I specifically started reading the Bleach manga because the anime had so much filler, so I would call that reading ahead.
Not trying to pick at words really, that's just how I interpret the phrase "reading ahead" :X
And I just literally mean 'reading ahead of the manga'.
It DOES pose a problem though, because you guys know stuff I don't. And you can't really properly discuss stuff with me, in the way that two or more people would when watching something for the first time together.
it'll just be a 'oh you'll love what's coming up next', or a 'wait and see'. Speculation can't really happen between us, because you already know.
We can still have discussions, but they won't be nearly as fun.
