I have a situation here that is puzzling me. I have combat animations and reporting turned on.

However, in 90% of the cases, the combat animations for my carrier fleet never show up. In fact what happens is, there is a small text blurb that shows up in the text area saying "X has been reported hit", and there might be a slew of these entries. But no animation ever occurs.

Immediately after that, it will have a Japanese combat animation from whatever CV group is hitting their target.

Is there a setting that I'm missing here? i.e. watch the American SBD's miss every target that aim at, or what?

There is a difference between the two. Search planes will also make attack runs on targets they spot. As these actions are always very small (1 Plane for the 'attacking' side) no combat animation is played. Attacks by planes that take off to attack a specific target will be shown. If you truly never get a combat animation of Allied planes attacking Japanese shipping I'd suggest you take a look at you squadron orders and make sure they are set to 'naval attack' instead of 'naval search'.
