Length Really Matters! (Give it a Light Novel Title 2)

The Otaku Author Give it a Light Novel Title 2

Back in the day anime had short and snappy titles like X or Astroboy, but now, they seem to want to give you the full synopsis. I blame Light Novels, but if you can’t beat them, join them!

So, this is my second post in the Give it a Light Novel Title tag and frankly, I’m looking for any excuse to do more. It really is fun trying to condense the essence of a series into a Light Novel style title. If you want to see my first attempt at it, you can find my first post here. For this one, I was nominated by Mia at 9 Tailed Kisune. If you have a spare moment, you should check out Mia’s blog, she has a ton of fun and informative posts for you to get through.

For this round, I’ve decided to use the first five entries in my A to Z Anime Challenge, so if I get more nominations, I will do more. Therefore, if you’re stuck for bloggers to nominate, just send it back here, I don’t mind in the slightest.


  1. Choose up to five anime, manga or visual novel series that have a short title
    • Light novels that have shorter titles (Date A Live for example) are also allowed.
  2. Give these series a new title based on those classic overly long Light Novels we love!
  3. If someone has already picked a series you wanted. It’s OK! Let’s see your own take on the title!
  4. Link back to the original post so I can read people’s suggestions, I’d love to read everyone’s ideas.
  5. Include Give it a Light Novel title in your tags so everyone including myself can find them all easily.
  6. Nominate around 1-6 bloggers.

    • Thanks. They’re fun to do and you could probably come up with a dozen for each show.

      I feel like this process is a good thing to practice. I know I need to have a better elevator pitch for my stories and this seems to fit that idea.
