Comments:

Judging by cover alone, I would say this is an upcoming male oriented light novel label, but we'll have to wait and see what either the publisher itself and/or online stores mention the label as.

The online stores 7netshopping and Tsutaya are mentioning light novels from the "Monster Bunko" label under the shounen light novels section.

And so the label will be mentioned as a male oriented light novel label on the main website. Futabasha will be releasing "Monster Bunko" light novel volumes on the 30th of every month.
