i actually re-read manga pretty often biggrin

it goes like - i'm searching for smt new to read, can't find anything that interests me & instead start re-reading some of my fav mangas bigrazz

& it doesnt bother me at all if i know how it's gonna end, spoilers do not affect me embarrassed

there are times when i simply wish to re-read some fav parts of mine, but mostly i re-read the whole series, there are some whom i've read 5 or even more times & they're not always the shortest ones either laugh

I reread mangas often. I do it usually when I don't have anything to read at the moment. I remember a favorite "scene" and start thinking about the manga until I can't take it anymore I need to reread it again. biggrin sometimes I read an ongoing series by a favorite mangaka and reread her other works while waiting for the scanlations.

i'll re-read short mangas if i really enjoyed them. i tend not to re-read long series, for obvious reasons, unless it's been a long time and i really liked it. of course, if i own the manga i'm much more likely to read it again.

I reread long continuous manga like one piece and such every 100 new chapters or so. After 2 years its hard to remember characters you may not have even seen for 5 months.

Movies I tend to never watch again unless I haven't seen them in months. Stupid things though I rewatch, like cartoons and things.

I've reread the series that i really like. idk why I do it. (maybe because my Reading List is starting to die.) but everytime i reread the series, i just can't help looking forward to what happens every time.

Not to mention I've read Kuroko no Basuke up to the latest chapter for 5 times. Also Shingeki no Kyojin. XP

Though I haven't really reread any Shoujo manga. idk why I feel like I've seen them a thousand times when I reread them...

I'm more prone to re-reading books than manga since I tend to remember visual stuff better, but I still do it for my favorite series. Not too often though. Once every two years or so.
The fact that I know what's gonna happen next, doesn't bother me at all. What bothers me are chapters with a lot of explaining about things that I still remember. I'll sometimes skip these, but that's all.

I'll also re-read a chapter or two, if I want to freshen up my memory of something, but that's usually only when I'm having a discussion about that series with someone.

You can PM me if you need a temporary (freelance) cleaner/redrawer for some project. Especially if it's something with nice art.
Being the lazy person that I am, I'm not likely to accept anything long-term though.

I reread quite often old stuff Ive already read, cause its still fun to read it once again. But of course not mangas like naruto with 600 chapters, only mangas you can read in a week/s or so, and then I also often skip pages/chapters cause they are useless like sidestories or just stuff which is there to drag the story on without having actual meaning to the story...
But yeah in genereal I do enjoy rereading some of my favorites mangas.

I reread certain memorable (for me) scenes of manga fairly often, but I only read it fully from start to finish again if it's been a long time since I last read it, especially if new chapters/ volumes are released after a long break.

I also read a lot of slice-of-life series, and these I reread on a regular basis.

I reread a manga, if

a) I've forgotten a lot already (especially if a manga is coming back from hiatus)
b) it's complex and difficult to understand just by reading it once
c) it's a gag manga

Otherwise I like to go through a manga and look at some of the epic moments again.

Flat is justice!

I have started to rereading some manga that I read 15+ years ago like Slam Dunk but otherwise I do not reread manga. There must be a vast amount of time for me to go back to a old manga which I know I like, but have forgotten most of the plot of.
