The light novel series, written by Tsukasa Fushimi and drawn by Hiro Kanzaki, debuted on December 10, 2013, and additional volumes continue to appear to this day.

Eromanga Sensei Story
Masamune Izumi, a high school student and avid light novelist, is the protagonist. Due to his lack of creative ability, Masamune has an anonymous collaborator under the pen name “Eromanga” to illustrate all of his works. This collaborator is notorious for creating questionably obscene imagery, but he is incredibly trustworthy. Masamune has to take care of his younger stepsister, Sagiri Izumi, in addition to pursuing his love and excelling in school.
Sagiri, a true hikikomori at heart, has not left her chamber in over a year and has spent that time bossing Masamune about. When Masamune realizes by accident that his anonymous companion has been Sagiri all along, the tension between him and his sister only increases. This is particularly true whenever a gorgeous female best-selling shjo manga creator joins the mix.
