Yes I have, as a matter of fact, I have judged many manga by its cover. Sometime, I just look at the cover and see if the drawing is good or bad. If it's good then I might give it a try. Same goes towards two men kissing on the cover. I will be turned off completely and would not even give it a try.

if i see a manga with a drawing style that i really dont like i wont even bother to read what its about. One manga that i dont really care for the art style is fruits basket but i read it any way. the drawings seem to get better as the series progresses but i opted to watch as much of it in anime as possible. I really liked the anime and manga and hope that others dont get put off by the drawing style.

one manga had a cover that really got me interested, and i had to pick it up and read it. that manga is absolute boyfriend and the front cover is a naked guy in gift wrappings and surrounded by lace. I'm very glad i picked it up because its a great read. one of my fav mangas, possibly my very fav.

I'm mean, because.. Yeah I do. Espically if the art is horrible, a manga is someone to entertain too, or interesting at least. They should really work on the art, is what I say if I see a manga with good stories but bad art. Espically if it's the same style again like the oldies or waayyy... tooo otaku = =;; manga's with those huge eyes and big pupils always the same style.

No. I always buy it and read it before I decide if it's good or not :]

Yes, for example: if the drawing is ugly... then I wouldn't read it because if I read it, i'd have to be staring at the ugly drawings all day long... and that's a no no for me

Definitely, plenty of times. I won't read something if I don't like the art style, and the cover should show the art at its best.

Yeah, I have.

I did that with the manga Hana-Kimi. Yes, it looked like yaoi. Yes, I wanted to read it. No, I am not gay.

Yes, and, well... I can't say there's anything wrong with it. If the style of art on the cover turns you away, there's a good chance that a similar style is used in the manga itself, and thus, you won't enjoy the manga. Of course, a cute guy tends to have me looking at other covers, if it's a series, or peeking in the book to see if I want it for one-shots. If it's shrinkwrapped, then I look at the publisher to decide if I want to buy it.

I don't judge a manga by it's cover. I look at the drawing and if I like the art work then I'll read the manga.

NEVER EVER JUDGE if you do ur a total jack i never did when i heard about a manga i go and buy it i dont really care!!
and if you do look at the cover for like 5 minutes at your manga book store then GO MAKE YOUR OWN MANGA OF WHAT KIND YOU WANT!!
