Just because animation isn't "real life" doesn't mean animated movies are less poignant and emotionally stirring. With sincere storylines and super realistic motion graphics, many animated classics have left us bawling, breaking our fragile little hearts to the point where it's sometimes hard to sleep at the end of the night.

The ranking includes both foreign animation and Japanese anime. Unsurprisingly, the massive global hit movie “Your Name” found a place on the list.
