High School DxD Volume 1 Cover

A light novel (ライトノベル raito noberu?) is a style of Japanese novel primarily targeting middle and high school students (young adult demographic).[1][verification needed] 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 ranobe?)[2] 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.[3] The text is often serialized in anthology magazines prior to collection in book form.
