Charlotte: The Hundred is the only weapon that can fight against the race of mysterious life forms called "Savages." It changes depending on who's wielding it. However, it only has one ultimate goal: Protect humanity.

Claire: So it's a large-scale Savage...
Hayato: I'm not really sure what it is I can do. But... I want you to let me go!
Emil: As you are now, I'm sure you'll be just fine!
Hayato: Hundred, on!
Text: The ultimate live & battle that begins now.
Claire: Just what are you, Hayato Kisaragi?

Emil: This is the end!
Hayato: The core...!
Claire: Impossible...! It's only been two days since Hayato Kisaragi got his Hundred...!
Sakura: As long as everyone says they like my singing... But personally, my true song, it's...!
Emil: I knew that I'd meet you someday, Hayato. For sure. I've always wanted to tell you how grateful I am.

The "ultimate school battle action" science-fiction comedy begins with the Hundred, the only weapon that can counter the mysterious Savage life form attacking Earth. To become a Slayer (master of military arts) who wields this Hundred, the main character Hayato Kisaragi successfully enrolls in the marine academy city ship Little Garden. However he feels a strange yet familiar sense of incongruity towards Emil Crossford, his roommate who somehow knows him from somewhere. On top of that, as soon as he enters the school, he is challenged to a duel by the "Queen" (the school's most powerful Slayer) Claire Harvey.
