Compare DeletedScene (where plot holes and such are explained in a scene that was cut for time or other reasons) and WordOfGod (where information not given in the work is confirmed by the creator through word of mouth). Not to be confused with ReadTheFreakingManual, which refers to the oversight of not reading the manual despite it containing practical information.

For example, many anime [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVAs]] based on a manga begin InMediaRes and rarely explain themselves under the assumption an OVA (being an occasional test run for a series) will typically be watched by someone who has read the original manga.

Other information can be found in text novels, video games, [[AudioAdaptation radio dramas]], and {{image song}}s, as the entire franchise is treated as a package. Though, if you don't have the money for all that, your best bet is [[ThatOtherWiki Wikipedia]]. When done to extremes, CrackIsCheaper.

For example, many anime [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVAs]] based on a manga begin with a OneWePreparedEarlier situation and rarely explain themselves under the assumption an OVA (being an occasional test run for a series) will typically be watched by someone who has read the original manga.

Fairly common in {{anime}} and mostly unknown in American shows, although it seems to be steadily picking up speed with shows like ''Series/{{Lost}}''. However, it's very common in American comic books because of the assurance the stereotypical fan is obsessive enough to collect supplemental material (see UltimateUniverse). This also applies to the elaborate backstories many video games of the 1980s provided in accompanying comic books or novellas.

If this material is necessary to progress in a video game or work on fanfiction, it becomes a GuideDangIt. If the manual contains information that the player isn't supposed to know until some playing, it's SpoiledByTheManual. AllThereInTheScript is a subtrope of this, referring specifically to names. When it's all there in an InUniverse book, see GreatBigBookOfEverything.

A common response to people who complain about a movie not making sense or not utilising a seemingly easy solution to solve their problem is that they should have read the book. Whether or not this is fair varies with some considering that a movie should stand on its own and others feeling that if you care enough to complain you should care enough to read.
