The Kairos 30-Day Meme: Twenty Favorite Animated Movies

This is a queued entry and does not reflect my current status. A new post will appear each day this month, but to preserve novelty, the categories that I used won’t be listed publicly beforehand. If you’d like to use my template, let me know and I’ll privately send you the complete list of categories so that you can rearrange and swap them out to suit yourself.

If you don’t want to bother with the entire meme but still want to play, it is highly encouraged to list some of your own favorites for today’s category in the comments.

Day Twenty: Animated Films

I have a sinking feeling I'm leaving out a ton of my favorites. For one thing, I was going for some variation so that it wasn't a full list of Disney and Miyazaki, but also I just really love me some animation and there's so much good stuff out there. Recent masterpieces and also much-beloved children's movies that may have just faded out of my memory. Anyway, the twenty below are still a good place to start!
