You might have noticed over the past couple of weeks that in addition to the “HD Recommends” section we’ve been adding a few affiliate links here and there around the site. Your perception is to be commended! This marks no change in our site philosophy; we’re still dedicated to spreading the gospel of our own personal geekdoms without discrimination (but with extreme prejudice, if that makes sense). The thought has been growing on us lately though that it just might be possible to translate this passion into more than just an obsessive hobby, and that’s where you come in: if you value what HD does, we’d be honored if you would consider buying through an affiliate when you make your purchasing decisions. We’ll continue to work as hard as possible to bring you the best content we can regardless of the outcome of this little experiment, but wouldn’t it be nice if it actually worked? Or made enough to pay for site bandwidth, maybe… Affiliate details below:

The list of HD affiliates currently includes:

  • J-List (localized eroge, eromanga, artbooks, figures, JAVs, etc.)
  • Amazon.co.jp (manga, CDs, DVDs, artbooks, calendars, non-ero only)
  • Play-Asia (games, CDs, DVDs, figures, etc.)

HD Advertising Policies

  1. We pledge to promote things we think are cool regardless of whether there’s a buck in it or not. This includes events, websites, random news items, meditation techniques, theories on moe, incoherent rants, and other saucy intangibles. Saucy intangibles are what we’re all about, really. Mmm, sauce…
  2. We pledge to advertise, solely and exclusively, items that we either have bought or intend to buy. We see no point in pushing crap on you that we think is crap, or presenting you with a random array of AdWords on the off chance that one of them will actually be a legitimate place to buy something interesting.
  3. We pledge to link both affiliate and non-affiliate shops in our reviews, as we pay for everything reviewed on the site and know that a single yen saved is one that can be spent on the next item of otaku paraphernalia. If there is a shop with particularly good deals that you recommend, let us know!

We welcome any comments or questions on this evolution of the site, and look forward to bringing you more great content in the future!
