Entertainment novel label that's aimed at a general adult audience, and contains fantasy, light mystery, etc... works (without adult content). The stories don't stick to the literature and light novel frameworks. The "L" in the label's name is an initial for "Literary novel" and "Light novel". The label started on June 14th, 2014 with the release of 5 volumes.

Release Date: Monthly; 15th
Circulation: 2014/06 - ?

So it's a general label that's aimed at an adult audience (no adult content). The label will be added soon to the main website.

Futabasha will be starting a light novel label in late July 2014, the label is titled:

モンスター文庫
Monster Bunko

Futabasha will be publishing net novel works from the novel contribution site "Shousetsuka ni Narou" (小説家になろう) in book/paper format under this label, with the addition of illustrations to them.

Currently three net novel works from "Shousetsuka ni Narou" will be published under this new upcoming label in late July 2014:

ぼくは異世界で付与魔法と召喚魔法を天秤にかける 1 【著:横塚 司/絵:】
宝くじで40億当たったんだけど異世界に移住する 1 【著:すずの木くろ/絵:】
軍師は何でも知っている 1 【著:ダンパ/絵:】

(Though currently there's no mention of the illustrators' names)

The label will start on July 30th, 2014 (according to the author of one of the net novel works, whom also is mentioning the person that will be illustrating his work under the new light novel label):

Wow, finally Futabasha will be starting a light novel label. I was hoping that they will do some day (I'm also hoping for Akita Shoten to start a light novel label too, I wouldn't consider that minor "Shounen Champion Novels" label a breakthrough into the light novel market).

Jewel Books and Monster Bunko will be added soon to the main website.
