I really should rewatch Cardcaptor Sakura. I bought the Blu-ray set and still haven't cracked it open...

I haven't been doing much of this recently because of time, though. I already read [looks] 1276 series concurrently, though not all of them update regularly, but even with just a fraction of them, I'm reading something like a hundred or so new chapters a day, so I don't have time for new series. Though I do make exceptions for authors I really like, so...
Hm, which option to choose...

i pre-select by categories, in this selection i sometimes read the summary, look at the score or just try one or more chapters.
Other time i just click titles and let myself surprised.
And finally i try some recommendation. But in most cases the "surprise attempts" lead to a dropped series 🙂

Lately I've been snooping through people's reading lists on MD and picking from them, lol. I only do that if their tastes are somewhat similar to mine, though.
The biggest issue for me is actually getting around to reading a manga, so my backlog is pretty big. When I actually start, I usually read the whole thing, even if it's not great.

I could also have gone with "I look for series that fulfil specific categories or genres" or "I look for stuff similar to what I already like," but that isn't necessarily always the case, so.

That's how I find new series most often. Other times I might check what's currently popular or look for specific genres/tags.

I read the new series for authors that I already like +
I look for series that fulfill specific categories or genres
I voted for the first one, though.
I think that most part of the time I read summaries. If I end liking that author, I'll look after his/her stories. And if I enjoy the genre, I'll end looking for similar series. 😉
As another 'method': I also pay attention to the art, but this factor is not important at all if the plot is great.

I also was aware people would want to choose more than one option but I didn't want 50 options to choose from and I also wanted to force people to pick a particular method, not just "All of the Above."
It's about as democratic as an FPTP election but I thought it'd be an interesting poll nonetheless.

So a combo of I look at those clickbait thumbnails or titles and I read the synopsis or summary and choose what looks interesting.
» Utsukushii Yume on May 30th, 2020, 9:40pm
Genre technically decides if I will read the book, and the summary decides how soon I will read the book.

I, first and foremost, find new things to read based upon art style.
I'll typically look at the volume covers, flip through some pages, looking at both the art and character design, and decide if it looks good or not.
After that, I'll either start reading it, or look at the synopsis and decide if the story sounds interesting before I start reading.
