iunno bruh.

There are plenty of anime that match the mouth to the sound quite well.

I suppose it depends on the style being used in animation, the voice applied and whether or not you choose to animate by phonetics or by more realistic mouth movements.

As for US cartoons... there's plenty of repetitive template mouths being used...

Really?

Think about how many different kinds of frames (individual images) have to be drawn to make the mouth "talk." If you just do open-close movements, it makes a lot less work for the animators. You only need to draw open, closed, and half-open mouth shapes, and then you can just keep re-using them for the rest of the conversation/angle. If you have to articulate every different sound, then instead of having to draw just 3 or 4 different frames, you might need 20 or more. And that takes more time to do the drawing and timing (because the right mouth shape has to match the right sound). Overall, it would be a lot more expensive/time-consuming.

I'm not sure that American animation is any better, especially the daily/weekly series. Unless you mean animated movies, where they have the time and money to be more precise, but I think anime movies are also often animated better than the weekly series.

I noticed that too while I was watching Avatar. It's most likely because of budgets. I mean in Japan they have new anime every season while in America there's a new cartoon only every once in a while. I guess the Japanese just cut corners to save money.

Low budgets and work seem to be the key factors.

Agreed. It really does take too much effort to have realistic mouth movements

I'm not even sure if it's worth the time and effort, does it really matter?

It doesn't really matter as long as it's good quality and enjoyable to watch it's fine.
I've been watching anime since I was 5 and it just doesn't seem to matter at all, in fact, I don't even notice it.
