The upcoming label's name was incorrect, and was corrected to the following:

Cocktail Kiss Bunko

It was also updated with its recently opened official website.

Concerning the following post:

(31-01-2014, 09:55 AM)SamZ Wrote: The following light novel publishers became internal (in-house) brand companies of the Kadokawa Corporation starting from October 1, 2013:

ASCII Media Works
Enterbrain
Fujimi Shobo
Kadokawa Shoten
Media Factory

Starting from October 1, 2013, the publishers' names will be "Kadokawa/publisher name", so the new names of the above publishers are:

Kadokawa/ASCII Media Works
Kadokawa/Enterbrain
Kadokawa/Fujimi Shobo
Kadokawa/Kadokawa Shoten
Kadokawa/Media Factory

I'm not sure why they couldn't just keep the names of the publishers as they are even though they have been incorporated into one company. Anyway, the above publishers will be added to the main site asap. Any new light novel volume published on or after October 1st, 2013 by one of the above company brands should have the publisher name as mentioned above.

In the not so far future the user will be able to pick author/illustrator/publisher/label per light novel volume, and this is only when there are multiple authors/illustrators/publishers/labels mentioned in the light novel series' info, otherwise there's no need to add such data per volume (since this data will be automatically inherited from the light novel series' info).

Edit:

Ok, though the above seems to be true on at least online stores:
http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/4047293989 (Kadokawa/Enterbrain)
http://bookwalker.jp/dec7563c09-5798-4cb5-81d1-1ab245514f3a/ (Kadokawa/Enterbrain)
http://www.7netshopping.jp/books/detail/-/accd/1106366766 (Kadokawa (Enterbrain))

But on the official site, the publisher's name is too long:
http://www.enterbrain.co.jp/corporate/profile_e.html

Maybe the incorporation of these companies into one, and their name change should only be mentioned in the publisher's info (once this possibility is added), but for now their English names are staying as they are.

I'll be adding the publishers as mentioned on the BOOK☆WALKER website:
http://bookwalker.jp/company/

So in addition to the following publishers:
ASCII Media Works
Enterbrain
Fujimi Shobo
Kadokawa Shoten
Media Factory

The following will be added:
KADOKAWA/アスキー・メディアワークス
Kadokawa/ASCII Media Works

KADOKAWA/エンターブレイン
Kadokawa/Enterbrain

KADOKAWA/メディアファクトリー
Kadokawa/Media Factory

KADOKAWA/富士見書房
Kadokawa/Fujimi Shobo

KADOKAWA/角川書店
Kadokawa/Kadokawa Shoten

Light novel volumes published on or after October 1, 2013, should have the new publisher's name, while light novel volumes published before that date should have the old publisher's name. So for example if we had two light novel volumes, one published before October 1, 2013 by Media Factory and one published after, then one will have "Media Factory" as its publisher, while the other will have "Kadokawa/Media Factory" as its publisher.
