D-Selections Performs ‘Hundred’ School Battle Anime’s Opening Theme


The official website for the upcoming television anime of Jun Misaki‘s light novel series Hundred announced on Sunday that D-selections will be performing the series’ opening theme “BLOODRED.”

D-selections is a group made up of a collection of artists from DIVE II Entertainment, and includes: Tatsuyuki Kobayashi, Azuki Shibuya, Yūki Wakai, Yoshino Aoyama, and Mayu Yoshioka.

The anime’s cast includes:

Most of the cast members are reprising their roles from the drama CD, although Satou is joining the cast as Souffle and Horie is replacing the late Miyu Matsuki as Charlotte.

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. Shuehei Naruse will compose the music for the anime and DIVE II Entertainment will handle music production.

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.
