Kadokawa Shoten's Light

Kadokawa Shoten's Light Novel Award 2007 seems to only include shounen light novels.

Every one of the categories mentioned above have 1 light novel from a different shounen label (1 light novel from Sneaker Bunko, 1 light novel from Dengeki Bunko, 1 light novel from Famitsu Bunko, and 1 light novel from Fantasia Bunko or Mystery Bunko)

It seems to me like a competition between Kadokawa's shounen labels to see what label will be the best (LOL)

I personally prefer Dengeki Bunko light novels over anything else :P

Light novels from Kadokawa's shoujo labels (Beans Bunko, Ruby Bunko) were not included in this Light Novel Award 2007. I wonder if these labels will have their own light novel awards >.<
