About

A light novel is a style of Japanese novel primarily targeting middle and high school students (young adult demographic). The term "light novel" is a wasei-eigo, or a Japanese term formed from words in the English language. For short, light novels are often called ranobe (ラノベ) or LN in the West. They are typically not more than 40,000–50,000 words long (the shorter ones being equivalent to a novella in US publishing terms), rarely exceed 200 pages, are usually published in bunkobon size, and are often illustrated. The text is often serialized in anthology magazines prior to collection in book form.
