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)

I'm getting so sick of the chuunibyou vocabulary though. I mean yeah, this looks shit from all angles and maybe I'm fixated on a weird one right now, but what do LN writers have against calling swords "swords" and monsters "monsters".


It would reveal just how similar their works and how creatively bankrupt they really are.

Looks like Chaika, doesn't she? And wow. That just looks soooo original.

All these LN authors writing this stories should just come together and make a single LN.

Interesting! Another Ecchi show with stacked characters

That's a very short title for this type of series. That's the first thought that comes to my mind while checking this out right now.

I read the manga for this. It was really average, but I like the main couple. I might watch this depending on how far it goes from how much I read.

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?


My guess is probably something like Arms or Production IMS.


I would think that this would be done by a studio like Diomedéa

The picture for the manga entry is really good.
The nipples that will pierce the Heavens!
Am I the only one or does the face of this blonde curly twintail looks weird or something? Such a mismatch lol.

This looks pretty awful. And the artists of Shinmai Maou no Testament? Please, no.

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.. :/


You Scandinavian by any chance? It's a common name in Norway and Sweden.

Those harem LN adaptions pop-up so fast. And again it's always about some magic academy...

...Then again, Madan no Ou wasn't about a magic academy and it was still one of the same.
True but at least madan LN is decent and tries something different, this however doesnt seem that promising.
