Animation is a huge industry in America and Japan. Europe has small studios but they are rarely on the level of Pixar, Dreamworks nor Disney. South Korea being influenced by Japan has a culture of comics and animation but rarely make a huge production due to media restriction laws and if such work does happen, it sees little lime light due to bad production plans. Most of the time the production is done by small indie companies who are unfamiliar with how merchandising and advertising works.
What caught my eye as a potential work of success is Follow Gurume.
Follow Gurume is a not yet published work by an indie company called Dream Factory. It has the Oriental feel of South Korea mixed with fantasy elements. The animation looks smooth and is of a style that is a mix between Asian and American comics.
