I was able to rescue your first post, but I lost the formatting, and Notepad seems to have screwed with some of the Japanese characters. I was going to look at perhaps incorporating some of the information into the main post, if you're OK with it:
Format:
Publishing label:
English Title - Japanese Title (romaji) - current status

Asahi Bunko (Owned by Asashi Shimbun Publications. Not a light novel label.)
Vampire Hunter D - 吸血鬼ハンターD (kyuuketsuki hantaa D) - Ongoing, with slightly fewer than 2 volumes released per year. The English releases numbering do not match up to the Japanese, with the latter having two different numbering systems anyway.

Dengeki Bunko: (ASCII Media Works, owned by Kadokawa)
Accel World - アクセル・ワールド (akuseru waarudo/Accel World in katakana) - Ongoing. Roughly 2 volumes released per year.
Baccano! - バッカーノ! (bakkaano!) - ongoing, but on unofficial hiatus since 2013. Author more interested in writing Durarara!! (see below)
Black Bullet - ブラック・ブレット (burakku buretto/Black Bullet in katakana) - Ongoing, although no new volumes since April 2014
A Certain Magical Index - とある魔術の禁書目録 (toaru majutsu no indekkusu) - series completed at 22 volumes. 2 side story volumes have been published. A sequel series is ongoing, with 2-3 volumes released per year.

The Isolator - 絶対ナル孤独者 (zettai naru aisoreeta) - originally a webnovel. Ongoing, with roughly 1 volume released per year.

Sword Art Online: Progressive - ソードアート・オンライン プログレッシブ (soodoaato onrain puroguresshibu/sword art online progressive in katakana) - originally a short story extra written as filler for the Sword Art Online anime adaptation, which was then fleshed out into its own novel series. Ongoing, with 1 volume released per year.

My Girlfriend's a Geek - 腐女子彼女。 (fujoshi kanojo.) - Originally a web novel/blog. Complete in both English and Japanese at 2 volumes.
Log Horizon - ログ・ホライズン (stylised and pronounced as log horizon) - originally a web novel. Ongoing both online and in serialised form, with the novel typically coming out a couple of months after it finishes serialising online. Releases are thus erratic.
Overlord - オーバーロード (stylised and pronounced as overlord) - originally a web novel but the two versions are radically different. Original webnovel finished but the light novel version is ongoing. Was 3 volumes a year but has since slowed down considerably.

Famitsu Bunko: (Enterbrain, owned by Kadokawa)

Gagaga Bunko: (Shougakukan)
My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong, as I Expected - やはり俺の青春ラブコメはまちがっている。 (yahari ore no seishun rabucome wa machigatteiru.) - ongoing. Was 3 volumes a year including the half volumes that came out occasionally (unsure if these are licensed, but I would hope so). Seems to have halted for the time being.

Hayakawa Bunko JA: (Hayakawa)

Naruto Hiden - NARUTO秘伝シリーズ (NARUTO hiden series) - completed at 6 volumes
Naruto Shinden - NARUTO 真伝シリーズ(NARUTO shinden series) - completed at 3 volumes in Japanese. The English license may just be for the first 2 volumes as this is the Itachi Shinden part.
Tokyo Ghoul novels - 東京喰種-トーキョーグール- (tokyo guuru) - unknown status in Japan, with the latest release having been in 2014.

Kadokawa BOOKS: (Kadokawa)
Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody - デスマーチからはじまる異世界狂想曲 (desumaachi kara hajimaru isekai kyousoukyoku) - ongoing at 7 volumes in Japan, with 1 volume every 4 months. Originally published on syosetsu. First few volumes of the series were published under Fujimi Shobo Novels, which was absorbed into the Kadokawa BOOKS label last year.

Kadokawa Bunko: (Kadokawa, not strictly speaking a light novel label)
Another - Another - complete at 2 volumes (first rerelease)

KonoSuba - この素晴らしい世界に祝福を! (kono subarashii sekai ni shukufuku wo!) - ongoing in Japan at 8 volumes, with one volume published every 3 months, although this includes the spinoff novels which may not be included in the license.

Kadokawa Tsubasa Bunko: (Enterbrain, confusingly enough, although this is owned by Kadokawa. Possibly not strictly speaking a light novel label, although due to the nature of the label, this is hard to tell)
The Boy and the Beast - バケモノの子 (bakemono no ko) - complete at 1 volume (first rerelease, 5 days after Kadokawa Bunko)

KCG Bunko: (Enterbrain, owned by Kadokawa)
Kagerou Daze - カゲロウデイズ (kagerou deizu) - ongoing, seems to have slowed to 1 volume a year.

Re: Zero - Re:ゼロから始める異世界生活 (Re:zero kara hajimeru isekai seikatsu) - ongoing, seems to be stabilising at 4 volumes released per year

Sonorama Bunko (Was owned by Asahi Sonorama, now defunct. Not strictly speaking a light novel label on account of having predated the term "light novel" and, unlike certain other old labels, never having chosen to adopt the term. However it is often treated as though it was one.)
Vampire Hunter D - 吸血鬼ハンターD (kyuuketsuki hantaa D) - ongoing but now under Asahi Bunko. See that entry for more details.

Sougen SF Bunko: (Tokyo Sogensha, not a light novel label)

Going through my collection, there's a Vampire Knight light novel been released by Viz. Pretty sure it's still in print. Viz OOP that I know of are Hot Gimmick S and Kamikaze Girls, Socrates in Love. Del Rey also released the Kitchen Princess light novel, so that'll be OOP too, as is Clamp School Paranormal Investigators by Tokyopop

I discovered a couple of weeks back Digital Manga released the first couple of volumes of Aria the Scarlet Ammo. I've added them to the list, but would note that the releases are generally considered to be of poor quality.

****. I spent some time going through your list, researching them and adding them to the list, then I closed my tab most of the way through without saving by mistake. I'll try and add them all tomorrow, but as you can tell I'm an idiot, so I might have to do them in batches.

Thought this might be of interest to some. Viz's Haikasoru is this week's StoryBundle:
Haikasoru is VIZ Media, LLC's "internal small press" dedicated to bringing the best of Japan's science fiction, fantasy, and horror to English-speaking audiences around the world. Since our launch in 2009, we've published Hugo Award-winning fiction, inspired a Tom Cruise film, and have shown the world that the future is Japanese!

In this bundle we've included some of Haikasoru's favorites, such as the science fiction anthology The Future is Japanese, which includes the Hugo Award-winning short story "Mono No Aware" by Ken Liu, and Hiroshi Sakurazaka's Slum Online is a light novel about a college kid obsessed with a fighting MMO—and Sakurazaka knows something about video games, as anyone who has seen the film Edge of Tomorrow (based on his All You Need is Kill) understands.

As or the bonus books? Our latest anthology, Hanzai Japan was nominated for the Locus Award, and features sci-fi crime from mystery writers including S. J. Rozan and Naomi Hirahara, and fantasists such as best-selling author Carrie Vaughn and horror master Chet Williamson. And then there is Project Itoh's Harmony, the Philip K. Dick Award Special Citation winner—the dark utopian flip side to Genocidal Organ.
So DRM free books of The Battle Royale Slam Book, The Future is Japanese, Genocidal Organ, The Lord of the Sands of Time, Slum Online, for any price over $1. And if you pay more than $15 you also get Gene Mapper, Hanzai Japan, Harmony, Legend of the Galactic Heroes V1 and Phantasm Japan.

It ends in 22 days and you can pay with PayPal, Amazon US or a credit card.

The Digital Manga list should now be live, except for It's Not Love as I can't find any reliable sources for it. (Safe to assume it's well OOP now then.) I have assumed they're all light novels, but I'm not 100%, so I'll go back and check them all individually at some point. I'll try and get the other list done tomorrow.
