Welcome to the 2020 Animation Challenge!
The challenge runs from 1-30 September, midnight to midnight, your local time.
Watch as much animation as you can.
Rules (for competitors)
- Title (year) is the preferred format
- Each film or episode over 40 minutes counts as one point
- A total of 60 minutes of episodes or short films count as one point
- Rewatches are allowed and good for the soul, but you can only count any film/episode once in the challenge
- Post the years of your watches.
- Do not edit posts to add new watches, just create a new post
- Also if you're in the top 5, please post regularly (at least every second day). So that the competition stays fair
- I will not allow anyone to enter the top 5 during the final three days with their first post.
If you don't like the competition aspect, you are still welcome to participate in the challenge! Post your animated viewings (no need to number them), and your reactions to your and other people's viewings.

Some online resources about animation
One of my favorite things about animation are the pretty pictures. So, if you watch a nice-looking piece of animation, share a screenshot/GIF of it in this thread.
They can be your own screenshots, or something you found on the Internet. Original aspect ratio is preferred, but not required. Please put NSFW screenshots in spoilers.
At the end of the month we might have a poll to choose the best screenshot poster.
