School Battle Light Novel Series 'Hundred' Gets Anime

The GA Bunko 10th Anniversary Festa event announced on Sunday that Jun Misaki's Hundred light novel series is being adapted into anime.
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 (pictured center in image below) successfully enrolls in the marine academy city ship Little Garden. However …
"I wanted to meet you, Hayato!!"
"W–who are you…?"
Hayato feels a strange yet familiar sense of incongruity towards Emil Crossford (picture right), 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 (pictured left).
Misaki launched the novel series in 2012, and SB Creative's GA Bunko imprint published the seventh volume on March 14. Nitroplus artist Nekosuke Okuma draws the illustrations in both Hundred and The Testament of Sister New Devil, another light novel series that inspired an anime. Sasayuki (Futago ya Futago no Futajūsō) drew a manga adaptation of Hundred in Kadokawa's Monthly Dragon Age magazine from 2013 to 2014.
The eighth light novel volume will bundle a drama CD on August 15.
