Yes, specifically the back cover. Because, you know...that's where they put the description paragraphs.

I believe everyone has judged a Book/manga by its cover. The word of mouth that a book or manga is good makes me try reading it.

I judge all of them by the cover. A good cover would pique my interest enough to want to read it. There are so many choices out there and covers are one of the first things you see.

Absolutely. I judge most things by their covers, and it hasn't led me wrong yet (except, yknow, Final Fantasy XIII).

In terms of textual books, I always have such a hard time finding ones that I like. Almost none have good covers, and from what I've seen, the same amount have good text.

Every manga I look at. If the cover doesn't appeal to me I won't even look at the synopsis for it.

All the time, but I do read the synopsis of it too. It's those two things combined that make me decide to read it or not. Haven't really gone wrong yet.

Yes. Covers give hints of what the manga is about, and the artwork does the same. Plus, covers give a taste of the art that we'll be forced to look at.

All the time. But to be fair, what's the freaking cover is for!
Just like books nowadays, designers and illustrators work hard to attract the attention of whoever passes by. A cover has the same function of a poster in that sense, since it's surrounded by so many that are similar.
