Is there a publisher who specializes in light novels or has a pretty good selection. Thanks.


Not that I know of, sorry.

Both. I have an affinity for the DRRR novels, they're what really got me interested in LNs.

I vote manga, because of having more story variety. Light novels are mostly your typical harem stories, if you're interested.

I like both equally, it just depends what I feel like at the time.

Light novels hands down. I suck at reading manga/comic format things, especially if there's a lot of action, I end up with absolutely no idea what's going on.
Anime is how I find most LNs/Manga though and I'll try reading the manga if the anime ends before the plot and I really want to know what happens and there's no LN or confirmation of more seasons.

You should! It's more like a normal novel, but shorter and it has some pictures, but not nearly as much as Manga.

I prefer manga at the moment simply because it's more available. There's a lot of manga out to the UK, but not many light novels.

Got to be manga for me! There's nothing like buying a stack of volumes down your local comic book store.

Used to be only manga but now it's almost tied. Yen On (Yen Press' light novel imprint) has really stepped their game up this past year with some really great light novels I want to read like Is It Wrong To Try to Pickup Girls in a Dungeon? and The Devil is a Part-Timer.

Love the creative stories that are created for light novels that I don't find in western novels. Seems a big theme in a lot of them is gaming. SAO, Log Horizon, Is It Wrong To Try to Pickup Girls in a Dungeon?, and No Game No Life all involve gaming and are being published by Yen On. Though I like it because I find it an interesting topic for a novel.
