What Is The Western Equivalent Of A Light Novel

I don't know about Sweet72's reference to Japanese literature or how that relates to English literary forms. But in common American usage, a "novella" is a shorter work than a "novel". Some give formal definitions, like a novel is over 40,000 words while a novella is 20,000 to 40,000. But I think the real, practical definition is that a novel is a story that takes a full book, while a novella is a story of such a length that you would normally put 2 to 4 together to make a book. Calling a story a "light novel" has nothing to do with length. Rather, that means that it is easy to read, fun and escapist, like an adventure story or a romance. This is as opposed to a "serious novel", which has deeper themes and embodies commentary on society or history or the nature of humanity. For example, "Atlas Shrugged" would be considered a serious novel, because the whole point of the book is to discuss the author's ideas about politics and economics. Any of the James Bond novels would be considered "light" because they are about adventure and romance and make no attempt at profound themes. Of course any such distinction is vague and debatable. A book could include serious commentary about life while also being easy and fun to read. I've read plenty of books that are mostly adventure stories but that also include themes about the human condition. Personally I think a lot of the better science fiction falls into this category. Either a light novel or a serious novel could be in pretty much any genre. You could write a light Western novel or a serious Western novel, etc.

Manga at Barnes & Noble, Tanforan 1.JPG The known races that inhabit Totto Land are humans, fish-men, merfolk, minks, snakenecks, longarms, longlegs, dwarves, three-eyes, along with several hybrids of different races. Strangely, living objects (such as furniture, ships, food, etc. ) as well as talking animals that are not clearly minks or Zoan fruit users also live in Totto Land. These living objects and talking animals are referred to as "homies", and were essentially brought to life and given human-like traits by Big Mom's Soru Soru no Mi. Big Mom also has a liking for collecting rare and unique animals for her own amusement. By law, all the citizens of Totto Land must donate one month of their lifespan every six months as a fee for Big Mom's protection or else they must leave. However, Brûlée and Praline claimed that Linlin would never allow anyone to leave Totto Land alive, meaning a death penalty may be imposed to anyone who attempts to leave. Despite the diversity of the races within the archipelago, there are no giants living there; this is because every giant in the world despises Big Mom after she wreaked havoc on Elbaf due to her eating disorder, and after a failed attempt to reconcile with them, which only further deepened their animosity for her, she effectively gave up on trying to bring them over to her side, deciding instead to use scientists like Caesar Clown to create her own giants. Aside from giants, lesser known races such as Sky People, Kinokobito, and the Three-Eye Tribe are never seen living in Totto Land in abundance either, with the only known Kinokobito being a prisoner of Big Mom's and the only known Three-Eye ( Charlotte Pudding) being reviled and discriminated by the population until she was forced to hide her third eye.

Totto Land also lacks two other races, one of the reasons is due to how one race, the Lunarians, dwindled over time, hence her attempt to recruit King from the Beasts Pirates into her crew. : the character is dead. : the character is non-canon. : the character is no longer part of this group.
