    What Do You Look At First?

    Post by zero on Mon Aug 09, 2010 12:55 am

    Basically all I want to know is when you pick up a manga what do you look at first?
    Do you look at the art or read the story on the back?

    Sometimes the art. But if it has a good storyline to back it up then I'll read it. But if the book doesn't have a good storyline and good art, I won't read it.

    I like doing things as simple as possible and it's the same with my choices. I'm a lazy person. The time spent to check out the plot is more than just taking a look at the art and decide if i like it or not. When you think of my personality, think of Shikamaru sort of... (except for the genius part; teehee!).

    Well, the two things that get me to read a manga are the art and the summary. After that I decide to give it a shot, I normally do and I see if it's engaging me or not; it's a matter of seeing if I find good the way the mangaka portrays, both by the dialogue and art and if the development is convincing me. For example Monster, not really that good art but I continue reading it because it's very well written and promising plot. Same with Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume, not so detailed art but very funny and effective one alongside with the story's delightful comedy.
    If it's not getting me but it's still promising I still continue for a while to see if it gets better, but I eventually finish it if it's not too long. However, if I like the art a lot I am most likely to read it without checking the summary. Now, I don't really know if I would kept up with it if the story is not so good... I guess if it wasn't so bad and so far no objections I would probably finish it. But if I eventually get bored of reading I just go in search of another, even though I don't to leave things halfway...

    Ofc, I have this habit of leaving mangas when waiting for scans and then don't catch up, or just forget... frown.

    Its the art that really catches my eye, but if I don't like what I see on the back I probably won't buy it (or even if there is no book info on the back) that is how I found the new Sailor Moon manga at Walmart (squee!) I was definitely fated to have it, they only had one of each book one and two.

    Nice. I didn't watch alot of Death Note but I had been watching blood + I always have to make sure the plot is going to interest me when I watch an anime. If it doesn't catch my attention from the start I probably won't watch it.

    Same here. When they decided to put Inuyasha on Yu Yu Hakusho time spot on AS, I was ticked, but then I ended up really liking the show. Too bad I missed out on the rest of the YYH episodes...

    Yup Yusuke Uremeshi. I miss all the old anime's lol they had Devil May Cry On Demand for a while, and then Chobits, but I couldn't get into DMC and I missed the first episodes of Chobits so I just bought the Chobits box set haha I already knew I liked the manga. Good artwork, just beautiful, but they only made 8 Sad

    Been there, done that. I borrowed a manga, I think it was Miyuki-chan in Wonderland(?) to the first guy I dated, never got it back. Of course that was my fault since it was kind of perverted and the guy was a jerk. My second guy I dated borrowed one of my Pet Shop of Horrors manga, never returned it. The third guy I dated took all my FF games. So heck no on the borrowing! Or no more dating lol either way I should be safe Smile
