It didn't exactly stand out, but it's similar enough to other series I'm familiar with to give it a shot.

I take it Emile/Emily is the one from the flashbacks and Hayato blocked that out?

MC is reminding me of Ichika from IS and Charlotte as the main heroine due to pretending to be a trap. Clearly obvious though.

Definitely got an IS feel from this episode. With him having a duel on the first day, being new to the whole Hundred thing, and getting friendly with the trap.



Same here. There's the whole "he's got the highest score"/he's the only guy who can use it thing, the almost instant harem for unexplainable reasons, a character named Charlotte who goes by Char, a reverse-trap who ends up the MC's roommate, and even the girls' archetypes are similar, although shuffled around (such as the reverse-trap isn't the shy and reserved one, but the genki, etc). The upside to Hundred though, is that it looks like there's actual enemies from a serious threat they'll have to face off against, which I couldn't find anywhere in the first season of IS, and the second season is low on my to-watch list after hearing how they went even more slice-of-life with it. So far, Hundred is faring better for me than IS. To make a handy-dandy flowchart here to see how my views change over the season, here's my order of interest in this genre:

Asterisk Wars > Anti-Magic Academy >= Sky Wizards' Academy > Hundred > Infinite Stratos

So, for this season, the main shuffling that could occur is Asterisk Wars somehow falling down lower (although I doubt that'll happen unless they really crap all over the second cour here), and Hundred at least getting on equal footing or better than Sky Wizards' Academy. Also, I'm too lazy to look up the greater than or equal to key codes or to copy-paste it from somewhere, but that's what I meant with the ">=". Both AMA and SWA are pretty good and enjoyable, but I think AMA might pull just a tiny bit ahead as I kinda like the more consistent darker tone. SWA had it, but not as prevalent as in AMA. Hundred seems like it may go to some dark places judging by that opening sequence, and since there's some Nitro+ writer behind this story, I wouldn't put it pass them. Hundred could either be just another generic battle harem, or it could be a surprise for this season. I'm probably gonna watch it all the way through, as there's a couple cute girls in it, I want to see Emilia as Emilia instead of Emile, and it's enjoyable enough to watch while eating dinner after taking Schedule 2 painkillers.

Episode 1

These battle harem shows are like a drug for Japanese studios, they just can't stop making 'em.

Ah well, they're a guilty pleasure for me so I like to watch them even though they're basically all the same and fairly terrible. And I always watch to see if there's a diamond that pops up, like Chivalry of a Failed Knight.

This was enjoyable though, it could have been a lot of worse I guess. They're pulling a Tokyo Ravens here with "Emile" being a boy and the MC having no idea (or I guess most people not knowing). Like, she looks nothing like a boy and the MC even walked in on her putting on panties.... *sigh* it's just hard to give it the suspension of disbelief, when they aren't even trying that hard...

Still, I hope for some cheap, feel-good romance and some solid ecchi scenes. That's about all you can hope for out of these type of animes.

Meh, I'm not overly ecstatic about it. I'll watch a few more episodes and if it turns out all right than I'll continue it just for the heck of it. But yeah the first episode is the basic intro to most school battle anime's. It was just in a slightly different format, as in no sexual harassment starting the fight.

This was horrible. Worse than Bahamut. Similar style.

Man, I just watched the show yesterday, and I'm not saying it will be some XXXX, but the show reminds me of inifinite Stratos.
Hopefully the MC is not a giantic wuss. I might drop it after the battle between Hayato and Clarie.

P.S. Emile/Emily doesn't even look like a boy.

Made a review that I am quite proud of. I put in just as much effort as the creators did. Check it out if you like

All the harem battle school boxes ticked.
Nothing new but I like to watch them anyway as I am interested in anime design.

It is quite unlikely that I will bother watching this past the first episode.

Ep 1

Even though I've seen this done a million times, when Emile was introduced as a guy I just rolled with it. Halfway through it felt weird that the best girl so far was actually a dude, and then the hotel scene came up and clarified that. No idea how I actually believed she was a male for the first 12 minutes but whatever.

Generic, sure but I'll at least stick around until more girls are introduced. Claire definitely isn't going to be my favorite but Emile seems alright. Maybe we'll get some decent ecchi and/or action out of the series?




Hmm...




That's better.

I want to know why Emile is hiding her gender. If the only reason is so she can be roommates with MC-kun, I'll be disappointed.

Got a lot in my queue this season, only dropped a few in the first round. This show might go in the next week or two.

Episode 2

The battle starts with Hayato grabbing Claire's boobs by accident thanks to his inexperience with the Hundred. Hayato shows that he could arm the Hundred even with just two days of training, and that led to Claire using her trump card leading to his defeat, but even though Claire won the duel, she lost to herself, thus she decides that nobody is leaving. Then Hayato, Emile, and Karen all go out together to explore the business district, and Claire asks Hayato to join the student council. Emile also wants to join, but she doesn't meet the requirements, so she battles Liddy, and then an emergency happens with Savages on the attack. With Charlotte's advice, both Hayato and Emile are joining the battle. Well, that boob grab at the beginning was really irritating to watch, but the rest of the episode was decent, at the very least better than the first episode. But still, I'm not all that impressed with this show. I'll give it another episode before making a decision on this now that Hayato is fighting for real.
