This question has nothing to do with the actual "animations." It more has to do with the camera pan during battle. In a multiplayer game, I'm stuck watching my friend's battles. If during that sequence I click to do something for my turn, the camera immediately jumps back over to another battle. Likewise if we are both doing battle, the camera jumps back and forth while we are completing our own battles. In order to avoid, I have to just wait for them to be done before I make my moves. It's a very frustrating experience.
