Why yes I do since im a believer that if you dont put effort into the cover then the content must be much worse.

Yes... That's usually how I choose. I look at their cover before looking into them.

Yes. The artwork is half of my enjoyment of manga. Even if the story is very good, as an artist, i have difficulty starting at so much poor quality art to get through it. Mind, this doesn't mean that the artwork needs to be epically gorgeous; it just needs to have a certain level of aesthetic pleasure to me and not have me thinking, "Wow, this guy needs to stop drawing animu and learn to anatomies," every five panels. I only make an exception for the Return to the Labyrinth because I grew up with Labyrinth.

hmm.. not exactly.

see, when ever i want something NEW to read, the things i do are:

1-read the title FIRST.. i don't know why, but about 75% of the time, it depends on the title, coz it's usually the first thing u see on the book (facing sideways)... (unless the cover is facing you)
2-look at the cover and back descriptions
3- then skim through some pages, to see the art work and style.. (are there a lot of dialogue??)


4- about 90% percent of the time (after LOOKING at the title, which sometimes i wouldn't really care), i mostly judge by the artwork.. .. .. ... .. hahaa, i don't think i make sense

examples of what caught my eyes the most:
-NANA~~the artwork
-Absolute Boyfriend~~the title
-Nodame Cantabile~~the description of the story (in the back)
-Rurouni Kenshin~~ gosh, everything!!

=D
