Why is Japanese Animation So Popular?

Genuinely curious if other countries have their own form of animation story telling then why is Japanese animation books as popular as they are today not ones from India Spain France etc? There have been a FEW Chinense anime/manga but not as ton when compared to Japanese most of the Chinese ones that DO exist arent always that good aside from a small amount. Webtoons are Korean big but at the same time still not as big as Japanese stories. Im just curious for fun is all.
