    ce nom hybride (cinéma d’animation) donne « une sensation de pléonasme qui agace les dents"

    The author says this because "cinema" is itself animated, that is, it uses the same principle as animation.

    I was wondering what suggestions you may have for "agace les dents" ?

    my try: gives us "a pleonastic feeling that is quite unnerving."

    "agace les dents" sounds a bit more unnerving.
