Hi! My name is Justus R. Stone. I run one of the only English language YouTube channels 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. In short, if it involves Light Novels, my channel has it.

I'm starting this Patreon so I can expand beyond my current channel limits. I want to visit anime conventions and do panels on light novels, as I've noticed many of their programs lack them. I'd like to improve the equipment I use for my videos, so I can do more ambitious projects which my current gear is incapable of handling. And I'd like to hire someone to do original art for my channel, so it can develop a unique identity. In short, this is about improvements, and spreading the fandom of light novels!

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.

My light novel purchases are funded, and some money can begin to be funneled into channel improvements like artwork.
