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.
“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!
The anime adaptation of the Hundred light novel series will broadcast in April next year, during the Spring 2016 anime season. Further information about the series will be revealed in the upcoming months.
