I don't have anything to read at the moment and i began rereading old manga again. But as i'm rereading it, it begans to get annoying because i know whats going to happen next. I can't reread anything even if it's my favorite manga. What do you guys do when rereading manga over?

If this is in the wrong spot i'm sorry and i tried finding a post like this but couldn't.

Eh, I usually don't reread unless it's one of those complicated series where I need to look things over again when new chapters come out (or it's a hentai manga. In that case I reread it multiple times, and don't really care that I know what's going to happen...).

I think, If I was ever tempted to reread an entire series over again, I'd just somehow convince myself to go find something new to read. I mean there is a lot of manga out there, I don't personally see much point in reading any of it more than once (unless it's really special for me, in which case I wouldn't really care that I know everything already).

I don't really reread manga, but I'm perfectly capable of re-watching certain anime and enjoying the second time (especially in cases where the first time was subtitled and the second is with a dub).

I don't have a good memory, so I don't remember much when I re-read, but I can read without thinking I had already read it once, it works for me xD. Plus there are always some stuff that can be only noticed when re-reading.

I can't really undertsand rereading a manga series over again, there is so much to conquer. If it's a small series then I might.

Often when I first start rereading a manga, I won't remember much, but as I go along, it all comes back to me~

Manga that I devoured in a hurry the first time through, I usually get more out of when reading it a second time. Rereading manga I read a long time ago, I discover a lot of things I missed way back then (cultural references, etc.).

If I can enjoy reading it a second (or more) time, that's manga I buy & keep on my shelves. If I can't enjoy it the second time, I don't need to buy it, or if I've already bought it, I don't need to keep it...

As for "why reread":

1) Love the manga & enjoy rereading it
2) Not sure if I want to keep it or not, so reread to decide
4) Can't remember how something happened or turned out or whatever
3) No access to other manga for some weird reason laugh

I rarly reread manga.
I remember it to well, so it's not as interesting. I need some years before reading it again...
So my advice to you is just to find a new manga to read.

Choose short ones. It would be like watching a movie over again. Not too long where the "I've seen this before." gets really annoying.

I rarely reread unless I am extremely bored... and my internet isn't working so I can't find anything else to read.

Really? I quite enjoy rereading the stuff I already read before...cause everything is never original anymore, I think of it as a new manga with cliche's stuffed in..

I sometimes reread by accident.. mainly with Mangas I read before finding MU. It is sometimes surprising how long it take me to realise I have read this already =/
