    Ho do you choose a BL manga to read?

    How do you choose a BL manga to read?:hamtaro-005 (4): I choose it base on the art and synopsis. Although art is my priority but if the storyline is not really good, i'll lose my appetite to read it!:hamtaro-005 (5): So, what about you all? i would love to know.:hamtaro-005 (6):

    For me the plot is important! well... also the artwork :hamtaro-005 (6):

    But if the artwork is very good but there is not an interesting storyline... in the end I lost my interest... so, I voted for "good Synopsis"

    It depends... sometimes I choose to read what my friends recommend me, other times I read a manga just because I like it's title, but usually I search for the new works of my favorite mangakas (Takanaga Hinako, Youka Nitta, Shungiku Nakamura, Minase Masara...)

    honestly just from the Cover...not everythime but mostly...:hamtaro-005 (6):
    maybe thats the reason while sometimes the manga ist boring...
    and then the Mangas that "Animenia" (german Magazine that present Mangas and Anime in Germany and Japan, i donĀ“t know if somebody know it) presents
    and at least when i read the first 10 page of it....

    i choose to read the book depends on the mangaka first.
    if they're my favourite (e.g. takanaga hinako, asou kai) i'd love to read it.

    next is about how the story goes.

    the last is their art-work.

    but i think those three are important for me.

    Actually I choose from many thing such summary, good art, price etc.
    But the top of that I choose from mangaka. ^^

    When I choose a manga I also look for my favourite mangaka's last work first. After that I take in consideration my friends recommendations, the storyline, art, etc.

    honestly it mostly on artwork or the cover
    if my friend recommends i will take a look at it
    i hate to say that i mostly judge on the cover cause i want to know what they look like
    but if i accidentally see a part in one i thought i wouldnt like i might check it out further
