ALWAYS!

The saying "don't judge a book by its cover" does not apply to manga, not at all :P
Cause books are only written material, but manga is also visual. It needs to have an art that I like, I immediately mark points down for bad art. And if it has a bishonen in the cover, all the better

Well mostly i read what i want to read at the given moment and in 70% i don't even look at the cover of the manga so i doesn't bother me much. It bothers me more what's the manga about so i guess the crucial factor is the story

Manga I didn't read at first because of cover:
Naruto
Fairy Tail
Skip Beat
Beelzebub
Bleach

and we know how stupid I was(i have since been a follower)

Manga I've read because of cover:

Akumetsu
Gekiyuchi?
Wolf guy OOkami
Zetman
Yumeki Merry
( the best art)=Dangu
now there's more I've read but the one with the worst art inside and cover is a diamond in the rough called 'Soil' if done right this would make a great movie

All the time! But there have been some very good manga I've been suggested to me that I wouldn't have picked out especially. Like Angel Densetsu. The drawings weren't really the style I like, but it's turned out to be fantastic =D

The only time this happened was when I looked at the Wikipedia page of Hunter X Hunter a couple years ago. I saw the first volume of the manga and instantly did not care for it because I thought the show was about some kid in a frog suit. The remake however came out and I watched the first episode on a whim and I was immediately impressed. Now, the original Hunter X Hunter would rank in my top 5 animes of all time and I own all of the Hunter X Hunter manga that has been released in the US so far and have a pre-order on Volume 28.

To be honest, I usually try not to judge a series just by the cover, but I have done it. But I only did it if it's content was obvious from the second it was shown.

I do it sometimes, but usually I need to read the description for it as well to be sure, some covers can be easily misleading.

Most of the manga I read is from magazines like Shonen Jump which don't really have "covers" for a series.
Still, I have decided not to read a series that looked Yuri or Yaoi based on the title and cover.
