While nowadays spoilers are considered rude and people feel like you ruined the movie or TV show by spoiling something and I try to be respectful about spoilers, when I first learned about the Japanese version of Sailor Moon in the 90s, I remember constantly devouring any new information I could find online about the series and the characters, no matter how major a spoiler it was. I remember digging through those episode guides at Hitoshi Doi's site and reading character shrines to find out as much about the show as possible. Even though I pretty much knew all the major spoilers about the later seasons when they finally came to the U.S. or I was able to watch Stars fansubbed, I didn't ever feel like reading so many spoilers ruined the experience of the series for me. If anything, I feel like years of only being able to read about the episodes and movies made me even more excited to see it and it ended up feeling more rewarding when I finally got to watch it. Did you ever spoil yourself as much as possible when you first got into Sailor Moon and do you think reading all those spoiler effected your enjoyment of the series any in either a positive or negative way?
