OpenToonz is a free 2D animation software. Sequence number scanning can be conducted efficiently according to in-between animation numbers. Compatible with 4 types of scanning (black-and-white, colored, with or without binarization). Compatible with the TWAIN standards. Anti-aliased lines can be used. Since the data of paintings are independent of those of the palette, it is easy to paint with provisional colors. Smooth operation even with high-definition image data. Equipped with the time sheet-type interface. Effects can be synthesized easily with the GUI using the node tree. Images can be handled with the real scale considering resolution [dpi] (units, such as millimeter, are specified). It is possible to use more effects by using the plug-in.

From describing here I dont get, it is full featured 2d animation software, using graphic tablets. It makes impression in me that it only works with scanned document. It is software, that is able to do any 2d animation you can image. It has advanced feature like for example: Motion tracking, automatic coloring, plastic tool, picture to mesh and many more. Its learning curve can take some time, lots of usual features are hidden for example (motion rotation and speed curves to edit), so learn this software take a while but result is priceless.
Here is only one example of one feature.
It is bit demanding on HW minimum requirements, but i think it is nowadays standard.
