Hundred is a sci-fi, action, harem light novel series written by Jun Misaki with illustrations by Nekosuke Okuma. The series debuted in 2012 under SB Creative’s GA Bunko imprint, where a total of 7 volumes have been released to date. A manga adaptation of the series was produced by SASAYUKi that ran from 2013 till 2014 in Kadokawa’s Monthly Dragon Age magazine. A Drama CD adaptation will be produced and released as a bundle with the light novel’s 8th volume, scheduled to be released on August 15.

Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:

“Hundred”—that is the only weapon that can oppose the mysterious life form “Savage” from visiting the earth.
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!

An anime adaptation of the Hundred light novel series is currently in production. Further information about the series will be revealed in the upcoming months.
