Can someone please explain the appeal of anime? I have only seen one or two movies and few episodes of various shows in my life but I just don't understand the allure. The animation seems jerky, the graphic style often over-simplified and childish, and I either have to watch with subtitles or listen to it badly-dubbed. Sometimes the storylines are interesting and unique but in those instances I'd rather just read the books than watch all the bs flashing quirkily across my screen. Explain?
It's an incredibly diverse medium that, because of its animated origins, can portray fantastical scenes far better than actual live action programs can. There are many examples of anime which fall under what you've described, shows like Boku no Hero Academia or Mob Psycho 100. Shows that while lauded by the anime community as massive successes, have a quirky air about that in both plot and animation which turn many, like myself, off.
But like I said, it's a very diverse medium. For every twitchy, quirk shonen action series, there's a more subtle and complex show. For every One Punch Man, there's an ERASED. For every Kill la Kill, there's a Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju. Mushi-Shi, Psycho-Pass, Parasyte the Maxim, there's a wide range of anime to select from. Even if you simply want a humorous, light hearted show to unwind with, there's titles like Konosuba or Ore Monogatari. Subs bothering you? Excellent English dubs exist in shows like Full metal Alchemist Brotherhood and Death Note.
It's a media that turns many people off, both because of the internet culture it has bred, and the 'immature' goliaths that dominant as some of the most popular series among the literal thousands available on the web and in stores. It's simply a matter of digging through, asking around and giving it an honest, unbiased shake to find a series, or many, you'll be more than satisfied with.
