Well, when I look for a series to read, I always look for elements of fantasy, be it modernday with magic, or a whole new world with dragons and dungeons and stuff.
Heck! I don't care if it's virtual reality, as long as a semblance of fantasy is shown, Imma read it!
So basically, I look for fantasy first in a series.

the first thing i check is the cover. i prever a beautiful artwork over a "weird" one.

even if the cover doesnt look that good i will still read the summery and if it sounds REALLY good then i will try reading even if the artwort doesnt look that good to me.
but even if the artwork is good, if the story isnt than the manga wont be fun

I usually check to see if the genre involves "tragedy". I've made the mistake of ruining my nights by getting hooked on a series and then having this beautiful romance ending in death. I just really don't like the idea of THAT being their end. I'm a real crybaby when it comes to fiction, so tragedies just make me bawl like a baby and it's so hard to recover.

In a new series, I tend to see who the author is first, if I have no idea, then the artwork must be something that I enjoy. After that I'll read the summary and see if the story seems interesting. I also tend to see if the series has been highly recommended either by friends or online. If it has been highly recommended, then I'll read it as soon as possible! If not, I'll  take my time and look after the summary again, and if it interests me, I'll give the manga a try.

The storyline first, then artwork.  If the story is good, I can deal with somewhat messy artwork.

I read the summary first to see if it's something that appeals to me. 

Then I look at the art. No matter how how good it is if the art is not to my liking i just can't enjoy it.

When i'm deciding whether to pick up a series, I first read the plot. If it sounds interesting, I then look at the artwork. Although I would definitely enjoy the series more if there are handsome guys, if the characters aren't that good-looking but the plot is great, I will give it a chance!

I always make sure the story has a happy ending, I hate sad ending stories, kinda depressing! ugh! Except it`s really worth it
The cover and the art, it`s because I love manly men, tehehe
Then the stories and the genre. I love something with actions, police, guns, firemen and the like.

The 1 thing I'd look at is summary of the series to see if it`s in some way to my taste/liking .But the main option is PLOT!The 1~5 chapters is what will determinate is i going to read story or not.
There is times when i read  10 pages(ch1),delete it and not look at it ever again /_\ But i always read,because there is times when the summary t gah and bleah but you start to read, and the story in your fav *_*

The first thing that I look, it's the genre,  because if I read a tragedy, I have for a whole week crying and I do nothing else ^^ So, no thanks shock Then, I look the charadesign and finnaly summary ^w^

And little extra which makes all the différence: if there are Yakuzas NB .... Asamiiiiiiiiii I love youuuu!!:Kyah:

It's according to the genre first.

If it's shounen/action/fantasy or similar then i look at the summary, author, and the art. for example i love Tower of God, I LOVE IT SO MUCH ;_;

and if it's BL manga then for me is the art.. if the art is good then it must be a good BL manga lol.. also i tend to chose the completed series.

Typically nowadays, it's either Yaoi or Shouen-ai tags.  XD;;;  Oh gosh, I've gone so corrupted.

Other tags that really catch my interest is Historical and Fantasy.  I like how much research was put into Historical & the artist or the author translate it in their own way.  It's really interested to see their interpretation.  As for fantasy, who doesn't like pretty artwork?  Most fantasy works are drawn beautifully.

When it comes to BL/yaoi, mostly artwork. Seeing as it's a visual medium, it's probably not surprising, and good artwork can cover a multitude of sins. However, combination of plot and premise also contribute to it, too. I tend to steer away from anything with BDSM and heavy rape themes, they're just not my cuppa.

I mostly either read what people have recommended to me or I go to whichever art style/title grabs my eye and give it a go. I tend to read the first chapter and then decide whether or not I'd want to give the rest of it a try, tbh.
