Are we paying more attention to these animation issues or has it always been this bad? I haven’t watched much anime in my adult years but I don’t remember it being this obvious (bad) during my youngling days...

I got a Crunchyroll sub recently and have been binging some anime stuff and damn if it there aren’t some really bad cases of crappy animation (Looking at you Black Clover)
