This is the area I'm referring to, by the way. There's a reason why Hollywood and the Chinese market are so lucrative, it's literally the majority of the world's population.
And that population is honestly way more familiar with and nine and nimrod other Japanese and eastern oriented art than western cartoons that aren't from over half a century ago that got mass appeal mostly out of the massive economic buff americans got post ww2. >>91747349
India is a big contributor but it's actually mostly a ton of Chinese people who share more culturally with japs and koreans than americans.
Like fuck, no normie american knows what the fuck doraemon is, but it's a household name in the east and it's honestly probably going to outlast stuff like the Simpsons in longevity.
Like the thing is, do you really think the anime industry, with the sheer amount of content it pumps out every season compared to the he one or two decent shows that come out in the west per year, did you seriously think it was all for a Japanese audience and nothing else? How fucking out of touch do you have to be?
The east is literally the fucking hub of human enterprise and is more financially stable than the entire american market, there's a solid reason they don't make stuff for americans as much as they used to: you guys are shitty consumers.
