Hundred

(12ish episodes ?)

What’s it about ?

Our token magic school/battle harem light novel adaptation of the season.

Characters

Hayato, our bland protagonist, somehow scored compatibility tests with the Hundred (the super-weapons used to fight against stuff) that he’s been fast-tracked to the Little Garden island academy for training, and become a beloved celebrity before even showing up. He’s mostly nonplussed by this, and his only condition was medical care for his ill and possessive little sister.

“Emile”, his new roommate, is just as passionate and possessive, and seems to share some history with him that he doesn’t remember. Also, that’s totally a girl, a fact the show isn’t even subtle about, but somehow Hayato manages to miss despite walking on Emile coming out of the shower. Seriously, it’s really, really obvious ; the only question is whether she’s doing it to get closer to Hayato, or she has other motives besides that.

Claire, the asshole student council president (with the mandatory drill hair), decides to expel on the spot the couple of girls who came late because they were waiting for Hayato at the airport (and he successfully dodged them). With Emile cutting in, this eventually leads to Hayato being challenged to a duel by her to prevent the three of them from being expelled.

Production Values

Other clue that Emile is a girl : the camera keeps perving on her. Not that those battle suits leave much to the imagination.

What did I think of it ?

Oh, dear. My kryptonite genre, and its worst clichés are already piling up like clockwork. (At least they don’t even try and pretend that Hayato is an underdog.) I’m actually mildly interested by what’s going on with Emile, but since that would entail watching more of Hayato being a complete non-entity of a protagonist…

Nope, just nope. Not bothering with any more of this.

I've been kinda blogging about anime for years... but mostly on forums (such as RPG.net's Tangency) and other sites. This site is an archive for all that stuff, just in case.
