only money to be made is in japan.

chinese are used to pirating everything. even the profitable mobile games that are free but have microtransactions, seem to be allowed to chinese owners only. it is hard to get even a hit movie into china. even the one japanese fellow i know running a gamesite in china, does so within china. not from the outside. hard to pull resources out of china....
