Comments:

The light novel label "Melissa" is aimed at females (most likely at the josei audience, since it is a TL label).

The light novel label "Overlap Novels" is most likely aimed at males, just like the "Overlap Bunko" label, but might have an older age group targeting than the "Overlap Bunko" label. We'll have to wait and see...

Still not that much info is available about the "Otomate Novel" and "Melissa" labels.

This post will be updated once more info is available.

The previous post had two labels updated with info:
- Otomate Novel was updated with info, it's a label that novelizes otome games from the otome game brand "Otomate". hmmm... it might be a josei label, and not a shoujo one...
- An official website was opened for the "Melissa" label, and tidbit info about the label was added.

More label to be added soon...

Ichijinsha's new light novel label "Melissa" is also based on web novels that are published/serialized online on the web novel posting website "Shousetsuka ni Narou". In this case it publishes web novels that are serialized in "Moonlight Novels", a section of the "Shousetsuka ni Narou" website that's aimed at adult females.

Added the following to the info about the label (in the previous post that mentions the label):
Adult web novel works from the novel contribution website "Moonlight Novels" (ムーンライトノベルズ) are published in book/paper format under the "Melissa" label with the addition of illustrations to them. (Moonlight Novels is an adult section of the novel contribution website "Shousetsuka ni Narou" (小説家になろう) that's aimed at adult female audience).

Hmm.... The light novel label "Melissa" is based on web novels from the female oriented adult section "Moonlight Novels", and the light novel label "Beginning Novels" is based on web novels from the male oriented adult section "Nocturne Novels".
