Honestly, what matters isn't "realism" which is almost a misnomer in art, but believability. Something well-drawn/animated will entice your willing suspension of disbelief, and generally the closer you lean to cartoony, the easier that is to pull off. That said, I love when that can be balanced with lots of fine details and attention to anatomy, etc.
to me depends on the thematic, the artist, the anatomy and the media
but i feel more tempted to the realistic style
it realy doesnt matter if it's very well drawn or not because every drawing has something to extract from it
