Along with the anime announcement of light novel Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut during GA Bunko's 10th anniversary event, it was also announced that light novel Hundred will be receiving an anime adaptation.

Hundred is written by mangaka Jun Misaki and illustrated by Nekosuke Ookuma, the artist of Shinmai Maou no Testament. The upcoming eighth volume of the light novel, to be released on August 15, will also bundle a drama CD. A manga adaptation, drawn by SASAYUKi, was serialized in shounen magazine Dragon Age from November 2013 to December 2014.

The drama CD cast members were announced via a promotional video streamed during the event.

Synopsis
"Hundred"—that is the only weapon that can oppose the mysterious life form "Savage" from visiting the earth.
The protagonist, Kirasagi Hayato, aims to become a Martial Arts Master using this Hundred. He managed to get into the battleship university Little Garden.

However—

"I wanted to see you, Hayato!!!"
"H-How do you know my name?"

Around the roommate, Emil Crossford, who somehow knows him well (?), Hayato gets an uneasy feeling.
What's more, just after the entrance ceremony, he gets asked for a duel by the campus' strongest martial arts master "Queen" Claire Harvey...?!

The ultimate academy battle begins here! (Source: MU)

"The ultimate academy battle begins here."

How many times have I heard that phrase attached to a series?

Hint: it's a big number.

Still sounds generic, but sounds slightly better than most series of this kind. Naturally, I'll be watching this one as well. I wonder what studio it will end up being though?

Why are specifically magic academies so popular these days anyway? Like fanservice is understandable but why that of all things?

Lol, the VA for MC is already there and it's a no-name VA this time. Glad it wasn't those two though.

My guess is probably something like Arms or Production IMS.

I like the character design on the cover at least :/

Will give it a shot like the rest. Never know when something will randomly interest me.

This is one of the rare times that I dislike a source material despite reading numerous LNs. It's not the premise itself even if they're a dime a dozen but it's the main characters and how the plot goes on carrying them.
Naturally I'll watch it but like with Absolute Duo, I doubt it would change my opinion of it.

I'm getting the impression that they can't adapt something different in LNs anymore, all these studios need to do is search LNs on Amazon Japan or go to a bookstore and they'll find more variety than this. have the employees scour the bookstores and look for other interesting LNs to adapt, and maybe have them read their choices to see which should be adapted.

I don't know if you're being serious or not.

The title of the LN getting adapted is 'Hundred'.

Ugh I wonder this too.... the magic academy setting was fun for the first 2 anime but it's literally getting so dull. I honestly think it's even more generic than a regular school setting.

I really hope for this fad to be over soon. Since these LN are literally copies of each other,they are getting so damn boring. and there are so many other LN that deserve an adaptation.

I get the feeling I read something pretty much like this just a few hours ago... oh, sadly I did. *sigh* I guess they're running out of LN's genres and all that's left are magic school ecchi harems...
"In the past few months since we met, I've shared many memories with Nagato. Though I've also shared memories with Haruhi, Asahina-san and Koizumi, I found that I've experienced more events with Nagato in particular. In fact, every situation seems to involve her. I might as well mention this, she's probably the only person to cause the bell within me to shake the most vigorously..." ~ Kyon, TMOSH

I wonder if the harem/ecchi-ness will be cancelled out by amazing artwork... I'll keep it in mind. Watch a few episodes before I make a final decision, maybe. Or the PV.

Somewhat rare to see a character with the same name as me (Emil) so I'll watch it just for that lol.
Not expecting anything more than generic mediocrity though.. :/
