Okay so for my own opinions on this: I don’t think it’s that important. I think that if the art were really bad, it could distract a lot from the plot, but usually drawings and a plot just need to be good in tandem, without either being particularly bad, for me to enjoy reading something. I don’t think I would read something I didn’t like just because the art was pretty, although I might look at the style separately. It’s a lot less important to me than my brother, though, cause he can be a lot more picky about the art in his manga and doesn’t like the art style in one of mine.
