Art and Summary !!
- Joined: Nov 29 2015, 06:12 AM
I think I usually start at genre, to sort of narrow the field down a bit. Then, I move on to looking at cover art and summary to see what clicks for me.
It really depends on what I'm in the mood for.

First genre, second art, third summary

When it comes to manga, I definitely judge by the cover first. Then the synopsis. Then the first few chapters (art quality + story) will decide its fate on my reading lists. *__*

First comes the art, then summary, then I read a few chapters and it's usually crystal clear whether I'll enjoy it or not. If it's a long-running series, I grab a chapter from the middle and check it out.

I usually go to M-U to browse for new manga. Summary (including tags for those without much written there) and art for first impressions coz at M-U they are right there side by side. Then I check to see whether it is completed (and fully scanlated). If not, I check to see if the scanlations are regular and up to date. If all of those check out, then I glance at the rating and reviews to get a feel for what others think of it. But usually if something has attracted me from the summary, tags, etc, I'd give it a shot even if it didn't get such great reviews from everyone. And the reverse is also true.

I usually look at artwork first, the synopsis and finally see if it is a completed series or at least if it is released frequently. Having said that I had read some very entertaining manga that had barely passable artwork.

I first look at the genre to narrow down a bit. Then I would look into the story/summary and cover/art - though the last one isn't a requirement. It has to be really bad or not my style at all to put me off. I would prefer a series that has already a few volumes printed out (if not an oneshot) and more than the first chapter scanlated. But if it is a long-running series or with already a lot of scans, I will read reviews first to see the good and the bad - if the story falls down at a certain point I would not start it to drop it in the middle.

I look the summary at first, after is, search in the bakaupdates's website if is complete or not xD

For me it's easy people recommendation.
If I were to look for new series on my own the art would be the thing that made me start reading. Whether I continue on reading comes later.

I look at the art style first, then normally read the summary. I do also obviously check to see how much is scanned, but if it looks good then I'll read it regardless, whilst preparing myself for heartbreak if it never updates.

The very first thing that I see before starting a manga is the summary, and if I like the summary, I basically add it to my 'Mangas to read list'. At one point of time, I search as many Mangas as I can find then later pick one out of the list that interests me the most and start reading it. It would only be like once or twice that I dropped a manga after reading the first few chapters, and I only ever done that is because I find the plot drifting towards the cliche. Other than all of this, I definitely look at the Mangas art!

Genre Second. (to avoid any unwanted genres like ecchi)
Chapter count and Ongoing/Completed status. (If i like the synopsis)
Then I go hunting for Scanlation sites for download and whatnot. (or Batoto or Mangatraders)

My first impression would always be the art (visual), but I tend to drop a series if the plot is not up to my tastes.

Summary, scanlation progress (if the manga isn't completed and the last chapter was several months ago then I won't bother) and last art.

For me I normally go for completed manga and then look by category. I prefer action/adventure with a bit of history

I might sound shallow for looking at the art first, then the summary. it's just something that's there and it's hard not to look at it! Though, it ruins it for me sometimes because I can be picky about art. However, usually, if I do get over the art and start reading, the art bothers me less and I can become indulged really quickly xD
