Either the mangaka, or a recommendation from someone. Usually the latter, though. The last time I gave another series from the mangaka a chance, it was from the creator of Hyakko, and was an absolute disappointment. Although, from the look of it, he isn't making that one anymore either. Wait. That's a lie. I usually give Douman some credit and check out stuff from him when it's translated.

I'm planning to participante at http://universityofbigdata.net/competition/5085548788056064?lang =en i'ts for create an automatic recommender robot and this poll make me think about new ways. But because I've just discovered it by chance and it end in two week so my first goal is to "make something" and then improve it.

I answered art and character design.

I typically first look at the art on the cover, but the cover itself isn't exactly my main determiner. I'll also look through the interior art and see if it looks cool or not.
Generally, if I like the art, that's enough to get me to read something. I'll read series in a bunch of different genres that fit into a bunch of different categories, as long as it's art is well made. I really just tend to gravitate towards things with unique and iconic looks to them (retro artstyles typically do this kind of thing better than modern ones).

The mangaka can also be a major determiner for me. Usually I follow mangaka that have cool looking art, though. Story & writing quality also both play a big role, but I would still say art is the main determiner, since I can read and enjoy a series with a generic or even a poorly written plot as long as it has an impressive looking artstyle (Gantz, for example).

Ikr. I do remember it and the previous one. I have voted on those polls and also replied on the follow up thread.
What I tried to mean (but, seemingly failed to do so) in my reply here was, that he, lamb could easily do a follow up poll concerning Donations' relation to occupation. That's the gist of it.
