China's tight rules and draconian censorship forces everything to be safe and boring. If I was gonna invest in animation I'd go to South Korea. That countries' rapidly becoming pretty wild, they are not afraid to express themselves and manhwas are blowing up. These days I read more manhwas than mangas and they are so good that I pay for 3 subscription on 3 different publishing sites: Toomics, Toptoon, Lezhin Comics... There are so many stories that would make excellent cartoons/animations.

Absolutely, I have been reading a lot of Chinese web novels, they are nothing short of brilliant. Chinese web novels and animations are incredibly top notch from a storytelling perspective. They just need some financial back for animation.
