I would be in shock, even tear up and angry at the author. but prob would continue reading to see what becomes of the series after the dead of my fav char.

I'd cry rivers..I stay away from tragedy 'cos i'm pretty emotional about death. Though it won't stop me from continuing on reading.

Cry a lot, but keep reading.
I'd still want to know how the story ends.

when i read a spoiler that the character will eventually die
Spoiler (highlight to view)
death note
I stopped reading the manga. Up until now, i still haven't resume reading it. This was the only manga were I have hope for the villain to succeed. He is the main character but he is still the villain, right? @@

Continue reading.

Even if I know it's going to happen, it's still interesting to see how it's going to happen.
No point in not reading it and postponing the inevitable.

.... ah umm... i put that ranting to the author part as a joke...

and i think this two could be easily mistaken from one another:
- Stop reading and eventually pick it up again after moping; and
- Continue on reading as usual

imho the first would be better: cry a while... or a river, then continue reading

as for me, normally i continue reading as usual... as if there's nothing happen. but i cry a little when i found out that yuuko (xxxholic) is not coming back

Well it depends on the manga. If its well written, then chances are there are going to be good reasons for continuing to read the manga or perhaps the death itself is beautifully tragic, as are the ramifications.

If, on the other hand, the character was the only good thing about the manga, then I wouldn't read on.

The only time I've done this is when I found out what was going to happen to L in Death Note.
