It's some stupid term that people are trying to use.

At worst it is just some buzzword that people use for anything they dont like, or as bait to troll others

At best it means animation that doesnt feel right/surreal/glaring/out of place. If a show has a very flat 2-3 shadow style and then all of a sudden it has one character out of a scene having lots of movement within frames and more complicated shadow work, even more colors of shadows, that character becomes glaring in the scene because it is so different from everything else around it.

Having more focus on one piece of animation compared to other pieces has to happen though, especially in an anime that has action scenes. Think of Eva, it literally has scenes that dont move for about a minute straight because they wanted to save money. That is glaring, but they were able to make it work some of the time.

Force animation is a phrase that has been used for literally years. I'm not excusing it, but it's not exactly new.
>>
>>135596314
Pretty much.
>>
For the love of god, people, don't even try to take that term seriously. It's a bait, troll's lifeline and save-me term when people are running out of arguments. It has no meaning, only "forced drama" ever had any related phenomena behind it and even that was just catch-all term if people didn't want to repost the same thing again and again when sperging about melodrama in anime.

I've never used it myself but it has always been used to describe scenes which look awkward due to too much movement. Joshiraku actually made fun of it.
Of course, every sort of idiot is going to misuse it, fail to recognize actual good animation, say an entire series has forced animation because of one scene, and just generally shitpost. It can't be helped.
>>
>>135596905
It wasn't a joke about forced animation, it was a joke about joshiraku being an anime that doesn't have much to animate, but even then, the animator work their hardest to do it.

>>135598879
Meme is the most forced meme in meme history.
>>
>>135593810
It's literally just tracing over the frames of actual human movement. The webm your replying to is an awful representation of it because it can actually be good, but it looks like they used male movement for it so it just doesn't look right.

Gee anon, it's almost as if animators actually want to put effort into the scenes they're assigned to because maybe they enjoy their hobby? They're obviously not doing it for the money

The fluid detailed animation. Making things move much more than they should just looks awkward and uncanny.
>what standards apply to whether a scene merits elaborate animation or not?
Action scenes generally merit it, generic talking SoL scenes from moeshit do not. Animation for the sake of animation is just a waste of budget, because when you get right down to it, animation is just a tool used to portray a story. A poorly animated anime with a good story is far better than a sakuga anime with a shitty story.

>>135601460
The movement looks unnatural even without the motion blur. Even with how much she's moving, it's stiff and the blur is a cheap attempt at making it look dynamic and give weight to her movements.

Seriously, what the fuck is with that movement? Is the whole movie like this?

>>
>>135601105
It is, yes. The constant "wacky" face and body movements in Disney movies and such are cringeworthy as fuck.
>>
I always thought it was just unnatural looking animation that doesn't really serve a purpose other then someone felt like animating a guy bobbing up and down strangely just because.

With exaggerated faces you can say the point is to look funny
Or if the character has particular personality traits it may make sense for his body to be fidgeting around weirdly.
It's a case by case basis.
