I know we did one of these for documentaries, foreign films, etc. but it doesn't seem like we did one for animation.
Share and discuss as many favorites as you'd like...here's a top ten for me...
The Wind Rises It's Such a Beautiful Day The Tale of Princess Kaguya Anomalisa My Life as a Zucchini The Red Turtle The Illusionist I Lost My Body Your Name. Coco
Realized while looking at my Letterboxd for this that I don't watch as many animated films as I think I do, so I'm definitely hoping to get some cool recommendations out of this (The Illusionist only recently came to my attention because of this board, and I really dug it) -- especially stuff not from the major Hollywood studious.

Have a handful to catch up on. I don't keep track of animated films in my lineups because there usually aren't any more than 2-3 in a given year that pique my interest.
Here's what I have now:
01. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) 02. The Wind Rises (2013) 03. Your Name (2016) 04. My Life As a Zucchini (2016) 05. Anomalisa (2015) 06. Coco (2017) 07. Moana (2016) 08. Zootopia (2016) 09. Toy Story 3 (2010) 10. I Lost My Body (2019)
Huh. Just realized that there is no Disney or Pixar in my top ten. Only film that comes remotely close is Toy Story 4. There's more to animation than Disney, guys!
1. Madoka Magica: Rebellion -- And I'll throw the TV show that precedes this in as well (it was condensed into a pair of movies that I haven't seen, so technically it fits) 2. Ernest & Celestine 3. The Wind Rises 4. Tower 5. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya 6. Shaun the Sheep Movie 7. Arthur Christmas 8. Over the Garden Wall 9. Your Name. 10. In This Corner of the World
HM: April and the Extraordinary World, Boy and the World, How to Train Your Dragon, Isle of Dogs, The Lego Batman Movie, Little Witch Academia (short), Liz and the Blue Bird, Night Is Short Walk On Girl, Paperman (short), Rise of the Guardians, Tangled, Toy Story 4, Winnie the Pooh, Wreck-It Ralph
1. The Wind Rises 2. Song of the Sea 3. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya 4. Ernest & Célestine 5. Klaus 6. Loving Vincent 7. Toy Story 3 8. Zootopia 9. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 10. The Red Turtle
01. The Illusionist 02. The Wind Rises 03. Spider-Man: into the Spider-verse 04. The Tale of Princess Kaguya 05. Toy Story 3 06. Boy & the World 07. Shaun the Sheep Movie 08. The Red Turtle 09. Zootopia 10. How to Train Your Dragon
From what I've seen 2010-2013 were the strongest years for animation.
