posted on by Karen Ressler

The wrap-around jacket band on the cover of the ninth volume of Jun Misaki's light novel series Hundred announced on Saturday that the anime adaptation will premiere in April 2016. The cover also revealed the main cast and staff.

Tomoki Kobayashi (Akame ga KILL!, Utawarerumono) is directing the series at Production IMS. Hideki Shirane (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Date A Live) is handling series composition and Norie Tanaka (chief animation director for Absolute Duo, M3 the dark metal) is in charge of character design.

The main cast members, who are reprising their roles from the drama CD, are:

  • Yoshiaki Hasegawa as Hayato Kisaragi
  • Rumi Ookubo as Emil Crossford
  • Mayu Yoshioka as Sakura Kirishima
  • Kaya Okuno as Karen Kisaragi
  • M.A.O as Claire Harvey

Other cast members for the drama CD are:

  • Wataru Hatano as Fritz Granz
  • Yuka Ōtsubo as Latia Saint-Émilion
  • Rika Kinugawa as Liddy Steinberg
  • Yui Makino as Erica Candle
  • Miyu Matsuki as Charlotte Dimandias
  • Ayaka Imamura as Meimei

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.

Misaki launched the novel series in 2012. 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.
