Light novel titles

    I admit to only really starting to read a lot of light novels, or even hearing of lots of them, around the same time JN-Club started up. Sure I did read a few others here and there but always physical and not digitally. But since then I've quite enjoyed reading around, WN and LN, and one of the most fun/silly/bizarre things I enjoy about them is the titles these stories have.

    They are often whole sentences, or paragraphs. "Me, a Genius? I Was Reborn into Another World and I Think They've Got the Wrong Idea!" "Is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon?" "The magic in this other world is too far behind!" "I said to make all my abilities average!"

    It is part of the charm for me. Like .. try to find the silliest, funniest title in a pile and give it a whirl.

    I wonder if sometimes they just try to pitch an idea by there title alone? Well I sure those that started as a LN had to try and grab readers somehow, at first.

    So aside from enjoying these titles, or maybe you hate them?, what titles would you use as a pitch to grab the views?

    I was reborn as the legendary heroes childhood friend and my home made meals have to power him up!?!

    I'm a guy yet I have to kiss a different boy each day or the world will explode!

    A world needs heroes so I have to speed drive this truck in Japan.

    I'm trying to find a job but God keeps sending me to new worlds to save.

    I played too many Japanese games and now I've been reborn as a little girl.

    so if we come up with our own LN names then here we go:

    I was transported in a Harem World! I can not find my Comic Relief Side Kick!

    The Hero keeps Destroying my Cabagges!

    The Hero Summoning Back-fired! Another Worlds Princess is living with an ordinary Hero!

    Help! My Son has crazy hair and sits in the second to the back window seat in class!

    I was mistaken as the Hero but I am just a Cosplayer!

    I was summoned to defeat the Demon Lord but SCREW THAT it turns out the Demon Lord is a Moe Girl!

    I Wanted to Open a French Restaurant, but Somehow I Accidentally Saved a Prince and his Father is Completely Prejudiced Against Western Europe!



  • I want my daughter to have a normal life, but she was born with pink hair!
    I want to have a girlfriend, but everyone is already in a harem!
    I married a magical girl and now all her enemies are targeting me!
    You already have a harem! So why are you asking me out!

    (also I would probably read "I was reborn as the legendary heroes childhood friend and my home made meals have to power him up!?!")

    I would read tons of yours, lol. I think I'd like ones that subvert / make fun of harem plot.



  • @terrence Thanks!
    I like harem plots but there's so many with generic plots and characters it's just... ugh
    Also that can be the title of a LN (or the premise of one)
    I'm tired of generic harem plots so I'm hooking up my best friend up to see something original.
    (sub title: beginning of the worlds best wing man!)

    I Had A Harem, But My New Girlfriend Made Me a One-Woman Man.

    ^ I dare some Light Novelist to write this. Bonus points if there are Yandere involved. xD

    I had a Harem, but My Harem found out. How am I to live my life being labelled a Womanizer!
    ^a different spin on the whole Harem thing.


  • Premium Member

    I would read almost every story pitched so far.

    Here's my try:
    I tried to build a Harem after being summoned to another world, but all the girls I get are Fujoshi! Now their trying to hook me up with bishoujo boys?! Please, send me home!

    I’ve Watched Too Much Subtitled Anime and Now Think I Can Speak Japanese

    I’ve read too many Light Novels and now imagine that every girl I meet is part of my harem

    (Probably both true stories somewhere out there)



  • @drone205 said in Light novel titles:

    That reminds me of the character Kanako's light novel book in NeeChuu. It's titled "My Demon Lord is too Cute to Kill and Now the World is in Danger!"

    Ha ha, so many fun Harem stories. Hmm how about:

    I joined a Harem to get out of work, just don't let anyone find out I'm a guy.

    Vegetables are people too: How to grow your own Harem.

    Every girl I meet joins my harem and so I'm the biggest bounty target in the world.

    OH NO, five handsome boys are after me! I do not want to experience smut! (Smut, nuf said)
    I am a Vampire prince who always gets what he wants, even a fair maiden. (Smut, again... nuf said)

    ^this one takes the whole Sister thing and makes it into a full-blown Harem, also their father must have lived the Harem route.

    This one exists! Hear its content is a bit on the controversial side though (at least the visual novel and web novel version).

    I'm thinking you could apply this title to
