Why is Japan so unusually productive in terms of producing entertainment for such a tiny ass country?
Games, anime, fuckton of manga, various types of novels(light/entame/character/literary), a mountain heap of adult content from eroge to hrpg to gravure to JAV, and not to mention anything about the bustling doujin scene and other niche subcultures
It churns out shitton of content every year. There's a lot of variety both in terms of form and content that you won't find anywhere on this planet.
What the fuck is their secret?

American entertainment is more traditional like capeshit films, tv series and first person shooters. Even comic industry is dead these days.

Still somehow remains more relevant than the whole of EU

Because only a tiny percentage on the country is suitable for large scale agriculture, so producing natural resources isn't their strong point so the service industry is massive to compensate.

They're not, you're just a weeb and don't know anything about other countries.

The only two countries that produce cultural products relevant all across the world are USA in the west and Japan in the east.

Because the EU is culturally fragmented.

Every country produces entertainment. It's just not every country has it's entertainment popular affar. I can't explain how Japan seems to be the only country that panders to so many niche interests though it may be a result of their overly strict collectivist culture where in order to keep society functioning everyone needs their outlets.

Japananese cultural products are more spread on the globe than some other countries because the Japanese weren't as motivated or efficient when it comes to cracking down on piracy abroad.
Manga is still more easily accessible for free than comics for example.

I really gotta watch small girl tease shy boy show #12342 or virign transported to the same medieval town show #2948298
But, in all seriousness, I think anime gained significance abroad because tv networks could buy already produced shows for a lower price than making cartoons themselves. Everyone grew up watching sailor moon or dragon ball or pokemon. Some time in the 2000s, tv networks stopped showing anime (except for pokemon) but the market was already established. There was already a niche subset of animation nerds that were pirating anime and it expanded from there to more mainstream properties.
It's a hell of a lot easier to sort through anime and see what I want to watch than Armenian soap operas with sites like MAL that catalog every anime in existence.
