Good artwork can make a manga great, but well-written stories may make it epic.

Great art = surplus. Good story = necessity.

I keep watching the results between author/artist options jump from one ahead of another, and then get reversed. haha, I'm so excited to see the final results next week.

Personally a fan of authors though smile Most mangaka are both the artist and the author. But I've seen a number of artist-author mangakas become the artist for another author's work, and the content is so dry that I'm disappointed so far... not to say that all of these works are bad (just a generalisation)

Most extras are terrible in my opinion. Some are also less than 15 pages. I read very, very few and the mangaka has nothing to do with it.

Since the poll asks which I find more important, I'd definitely say author.

The artist's importance goes up and down depending on the genres involved, but when it comes down to it, I'm far more likely to go looking for new manga through the author's list of completed works than the artist's.

Also, I'd much rather read a book than look at a long sequence of images with no text or storyline.

Author..

Because anyone can become good at drawing if they put a lot of time and effort into it. However, it takes real talent to spin a good story.

None... Because I like to pick my manga randomly as much as i like looking after things from Authors and Artists which I love... so yea, white it is.

The thing is that I like picking randomly series by their names then deciding which I'll read. Then, when I love a manga's story or Art or even just the way of associating those two, I just can't help looking after other series done by the same Author-Artist or collab.

I think a lot of people are missing the point by trying to go with the "Art doesn't matter as long as the story is good" boat. (try and read BadKarma Post, is worth a read)

I particularly think that what makes art in a manga good is the dynamic, i get way into the story, so much that i'm don't even notice that i'm reading or following pictures, they just move for me... but when suddenly they stop it's because the art is not letting the story flow, you see two pictures and no a story (or at least that's what i feel), so if they are not moving and i'm just reading something and looking to some related pictures i could had picked a light novel and it would had been the same.

Like that a lot of people might have (with out even noticing) something that they seek in the art of a manga, regardless of how pretty it might be.

I still stand with the "Doesn't matter" tough, just because i read a previous work of both artist and author and liked it, it doesn't mean i'm going to love all the things they do, it depends on each particular manga, so i won't pay attention to who made it before i finish reading it.

Do I even need to mention that numerous people criticize One Piece and Naruto for their art?!

Then why are they among the BIG 3?

Enough said.

This x100000000000000.

There's a reason people hate/dislike manga with really good art but cliché plot/storyline.

Reading a Good Novel is way better than going through a CG Set.

If people criticize the art of One Piece then they are quite out of their mind, the style fits the story amazingly well and the dynamic is so much that you feel you are watching a film rather than reading, and that's something that you get after drawing almost a thousand chapters of manga, calling it bad is, in my opinion, ridiculous.
