Hi! My name is Justus R. Stone. I run one of the only English language YouTube channels & Podcasts devoted entirely to Light Novels.

What are Light Novels? The term originated in Japan to describe novels created
  1. for easier reading entertainment
  2. aimed at a media savvy audience (fans of video games/anime/manga)
  3. are approximately 50,000+ words
  4. use manga images both on their covers and as select interior artwork
  5. serve as the source material for many of today's successful manga & anime properties
Every week on my YouTube channel I review 2-3 light novels and countdown the Top 10 Best Selling Light Novels in Japan. Beyond that, I also do videos highlighting upcoming releases and news regarding licensed titles.
Every two weeks, myself and several others gather to do the Light Novel Podcast. We discuss specific series and any news/developments related to Light Novels.



I post numerous videos and podcasts per month. So to keep it fair, I charge a monthly subscription type fee. This means you can decide how much you want to spend on a monthly basis, and you won't be charged anything more, regardless of how much work I produce. I never want anyone to struggle with this or to over-extend themselves. Anything you contribute is amazing and appreciated. You can always alter your support level at any time.



  • Purchasing books to review on my YouTube channel.
  • Paying for the hosting of the Light Novel Podcast.
  • Upgrading equipment for both video and audio recording.
  • Fund any other opportunities which exist to grow the Light Novel Fandom.



Do I have to pay in US Dollars? Nope. Since this is a US based website, everything is written in Dollars, but you can use any currency and it will be automatically converted.

I don't have much money, can I still become a Patron? Absolutely! Only sign up to donate what you can easily afford. Even $1 per month adds up, and is greatly appreciated!

Can I stop donating in the future if I can't afford it?
Yes of course! You can log in to change or cancel your pledge whenever you want.

I'm still confused about Patreon?
If you have questions about using Patreon, or encounter any problems with the signup process, the Patreon support team is really helpful! You can send them a message by clicking here.

I appreciate you taking the time to check this out. Your desire to help keep my channel going and to grow the light novel community is amazing.

Thank you!
