Ownership, Funding, and Advertising Policy

AutoAnime has been owned and operated by online publisher AutoAnime Company since 2017. Previous to that, the founder AutoAnime held the site. AutoAnime (a subsidiary of the AutoAnime) investment group) oversees the operation of AutoAnime across all platforms on which the brand appears: Google, Facebook, YouTube, and a host of other social media and news platforms. That said, AutoAnime Inc. does not influence or otherwise dictate the opinions of the editorial teams nor interfere with site objectives, voice, or topic selection.

Programmatic advertising platforms fund most website operations, editorial salaries, and content payouts; the AutoAnime editorial staff, writers, and content team operate independently of AutoAnime’s Ad-Ops team. The two do not interact nor influence each other’s work. Representation of all viewpoints, perspectives, and writers of all backgrounds is strongly encouraged by the senior editors – ensuring that any writer, editor, partner, or business division never restricts the objectivity and accuracy of our content.

Note: While we strive to provide readers with a great ad experience, advertisements may not necessarily reflect the views of AutoAnime or AutoAnime Inc.

On rare occasions, our ads team or content teams negotiate partnerships, direct sales campaigns, and sponsorships. Sponsored articles are identified with a disclosure statement identifying the post accordingly. Similarly, select articles include affiliate links for which AutoAnime receives a commission on purchased items. Reports that include affiliate links also contain a statement disclosing an affiliate partnership. You can see an example of our affiliate disclosure in-text HERE.

The AutoAnime editorial team leverages relationships with developers, publishers, manufacturers, and other partners for exclusive interviews, review products, and other opportunities that help us create informed and accurate content. We are not paid for this content. To ensure that access does not influence editorial objectivity, we follow a comprehensive ethics policy that all writers, editors, and contributors must follow.
