After trying Elfen Lied from its cover, I've stopped judging by the cover completely. But then, if art designs are good, I'd probably start reading it any way.

hmm..yeah.. yeah.. there are some cases that I've done that.. Then I regretted it afterwards.. I usually look at the style of drawing but A GOOD story is also important in a manga, even if the drawing isn't that cool... So when you check out a manga, dont just look at the outer appearance, check out its content as well.

I do it all the time ^_^
Art > Story
HOWEVER. If the storyline seems extremely awesome, I may sometimes not mind the art.

Sometimes I do but I'll usually read the first few mangas and then decide whether to carry on reading or not

Yes. But later on I try it and it's great. There are some covers that mislead and the story ends up being bad or the artwork of the actual story isn't as good as it was on the cover. I hate it when that happens...

I do judge a manga by its cover most of the time. if the mangaka is good enough, he or she will be able to create a catchy cover. but 3 things to do when choosing a manga: first: look at the cover, second: read the plot (if there is, or the introduction), third: scanning through the pages just to see the real artwork. (some mangaka only put in their best drawing the cover sometimes)

Yep, but I somehow always end up reading them anyways, because I have read all the ones I liked...
