“ Challenge.. accepted,” says Ethan with a proud face but is actually hiding his insecurities.
“ But before I start this, I’d like to turn this into a challenge for you as well,” Ethan made a rude remark, assuming everyone would just play along with him.
“ So, I’m gonna give my take on each of these anime inside a quoted and italized form, along with the genre tags that it belongs to. The answers will be revealed after 5 tittles. And now, it’s up to you to take a shot and guess, see if it’s a hit or a miss. ”
“ Let’s think! ” quoted Ethan from a tv series.
- 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.
- Give these series a new title based on those classic overly long Light Novels we love!
- If someone has already picked a series you wanted. It’s ok! Let’s see your own take on the title!
- Link back to the original post.
- Include Give It a Light Novel Title in your tags so everyone including myself (Dewbond) can find them all easily.
- Nominate around 1-6 bloggers.
“ None of these light novel tittles truly represent what these anime are about, so take it with a grain of salt and have fun guessing! Also, I de-capitalize all the tittles because I think it’d be too awkward to read them in a proper capitalized manner. And also, there’s a reason why only the cover page has an image, and why these sentences are weirdly-structured.”

“ I hope you had fun and some chuckles, because I’m afraid I’m gonna end it her—,” concludes Ethan before he is so rudely interrupted by a flash mob dancing to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’ and holding a sign that says..
