Donghua or "动画" refers to animation produced in China. Depending on the language, it may also refer to animations with donghua styled-art. Diverse art styles are used, and character proportions and features can be quite varied, with a common characteristic feature being large and emotive eyes and 3D animation

A type of Chinese animation thought to have originated since 1995. However, modern style of donghua emerges from 2010. Resembles a lot like anime (but it's not). Many donguas are inspired from manhua, novels, web novels, comics, webtoons, etc. China, Taiwan and Hong Kong are the places where all donghuas are published. Today, we have a lot of fans of donghua from Europe.
Guy: Hey, is there any news about a new season of the donghua "Wangpai Yushi"? That was really funny as heck, y'know...

Girl: I dunno... there are no news for a new release of that donghua yet. It's been like 8 years since that was published. I really want a new season for this AND for a good laugh as well! The character development, the storyline, the comedy... all are awesome.

Chinese animation that has become increasingly popular due to "The Chinese Wave." Many donghua's have garnered enough attention internationally to be made into cdrama's, manhua's, and a few have even been dubbed in English. Donghua's are the leading role in the animation market, various movies have even topped infamous Disney franchises. With a bright future ahead for cmedia, donghua's add more fuel to the fire of sinoboo's and sinophile's.

A style of Chinese animation that has become increasingly popular in the pop culture of many Western societies in recent years. It has a number of genres from all ages and has created a large fan base as well as many people that are opposed to it.
