What is the Sirius & Light Novel Editorial Department?

It is the only department of Kodansha that produces both comics and light novels in the
same editorial department. That’s why it is easy to turn light novels into comics, and there are
a large number of works that have been turned into comics. The works are published in a variety of media
such as Monthly Shōnen Sirius, Wednesday Sirius, Magapoke, Palcy, and Comic Days,
and it is the easiest editorial department for rookies to make their debut.
