I'm at a paltry 36%, but I didn't check off any of the 17 or so films that I haven't seen in so  many years that I need to see them again to warrant checking them off.

39%

Only seen 1 of the Ghibli ones though (Fireflies), I intend to remedy that.

I'm at 57%. Like everyone else, I'm missing a lot of the 50-100 films. I clearly need to see some Satoshi Kon, Takahata, and a bunch more.

I think the second 50 with a lot of 70's independent animation, and 80's non-Disney animation represents a portion of the animated world that the majority of us haven't explored in any great detail. I look forward to discovering many of those films.

You people are slacking. I'm at 63% and I haven't even seen all of the Miyazaki ones.

I'm at 69%, which might explain why I was so excited to participate in this list to begin with.

But I still have much to watch.  These will be some of the next animation I see (including Ponyo, of course):
Mindgame
The perfect blue
The Girl Who Leaped through Time
Waltz With Bashir
Ninja Scroll
Waking Life
Barefoot Gen


Perhaps I might bite the bullet and see Souith Park, too, but what little I've seen of the show has never encouraged me to see more.

Also, I was pleased to see how many movies beat Princess Mononoke-- especially Spirited Away, but also the Iron Giant and Wall-E.  If only Finding Nemo had beat it, too, then I would have been ecstatic.

(BTW, nothing aganst PM, I just think that it's overrated compared to Miyazaki's others)

Also, Belleville, a film I couldn't even finish (although maybe it was that I wasn't in the right state of mind when I gave it a shot) finishing over Nausicaa was kind of a kick in the teeth kind of thing.
