According to the publisher, Oakla Shuppan, the light novel label NMG Bunko is aimed at males:
http://www.oakla.com/ordersheet/pdf/nmgbunko.pdf

The target readership was added to reflect that:
http://comipedia.com/light-novel-label/nmg-bunko

The target readership is mentioned as "shounen" on Tsutaya, but it is mentioned with a wrong target readership on other online stores.

An official site has opened for the "Alpha Light Bunko" light novel label:
http://www.alphalight-books.com/

The covers of the first two light novel volumes can be seen in it.

As was mentioned in the following post, the light novel works are publications of net novel works from the "Shousetsuka ni Narou" website:
http://forums.lndb.info/showthread.php?tid=36&pid=27331#pid27331

AlphaPolis is also publishing manga adaptations of both of these novels, which can be seen here:
http://www.alphapolis.co.jp/manga/viewOpening/842000050/ (manga aimed at boys)
http://www.alphapolis.co.jp/manga/viewOpening/398000038/ (manga aimed at males)

Both manga adaptations are aimed at a male audience. Also the online store 7netshopping is mentioning both upcoming light novels under the "shounen" target readership:
http://www.7netshopping.jp/books/detail/-/accd/1106419953
http://www.7netshopping.jp/books/detail/-/accd/1106419954

This might indicate that the light novel label "Alpha Light Bunko" is aimed at a male audience. Once this is verified via other online shopping stores or/and other websites, the target readership will be added accordingly.

Edit: The first two light novel volumes will be released under this label on June 12th according to the publisher.
