    Light Novels Info and Guidelines

    Welcome to the Mangahelpers Light Novel Forum

    Light Novels (ranobe) are a style of book popular with Japanese readers. They are often, but not always, serialized in anthology magazines before being compiled into book form. Many are published directly as books. Light Novel are most often first printed in bunkoban format. Many popular anime have been based on Light Novel's, including Full Metal Panic, Suzumiya Haruhi, the Monogatari Series, Oreimo, To Aru Majutsu no Index, Toradora, Sword Art Online, Accel World, Chuunibyou, and many more.

    General Rules
    • One thread per series.
    • Title and Author must be included in the thread title.
    • There are no requirements, but please try and include as much information about a series as possible when starting a new thread.
    • Threads should be about Light Novel's only, discuss manga in the appropriate demographic board.
    • Manga adaptions of Light Novels should be discussed in the appropriate demographic board.
    • Anime adaptions of Light Novels should be discussed in the Otaku Theater.
    • General Light Novel Discussion threads are welcome in this forum.
    • Members are welcome and encouraged to start threads in this forum.
    Prefixes:
    Prefixes are based on publishing status in Japan
    • Ongoing: Currently published in Japan
    • Complete: Publication has ended in Japan
    • Hiatus: A temporary halt in publication.
    • Canceled: Publication has been terminated prematurely.
    • Info: Mod use only. For rules, guides, and the hangout thread.
    Spoiler Rules:

    24 Hour Spoiler Rule:
    • Mangahelpers enforces a temporary blockade for discussion of new spoilers/chapters. This blockade ends 24 hours after the chapter is released in English
    • For series with no forum, [spoiler] tags must be used while the 24 hour rule is enforced.
    • Please wait 24 hours before using art from new chapters in signatures and avatars.
    • Please wait 24 hours before posting any art based on new chapters in the art and stories section.
    • The 24 hour rule will be strictly enforced. This is a courtesy rule. Not every member reads spoilers and not everyone can read new chapters as soon as they are released.

    Formatting:

    We ask that the same format used to post spoilers in the sub-forums is also used for single threads. We also ask that [spoiler] tags are used in single threads. Please follow these examples:

    Spoiler: Manga Title, Chapter Number show

    Spoiler: Manga Title, Chapter Number show
