Hundred known as Handoreddo in Japanese is based on a popular light novel of the same name that was first published in 2012. The Hundred light novel series is written by Jun Misaki and illustrated by Nekosuke Ōkuma.
Hundred is a great mecha-harem anime series with action elements loved by people worldwide, which follows Hayato Kisaragi, a teenager who has the highest compatibility level with the technology known as Hundred and as a result, is invited to master his skills at a prestigious military academy aboard a battleship.
The anime television series Hundred has only had one season so far directed by Tomoki Kobayashi and animated by Studio Production IMS. There has been no word on whether or not the director will return for Hundred season 2.
The first 12-episode Hundred television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2016. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting for Hundred Season 2 Episode 1 or some sort of sequel.
If you haven’t seen the series and are interested in its quality, I can promise you that it’s rather lovely! 6.3/10 is a decent IMDb rating, and the program has a 6.33/10 average audience rating on Myanimelist. So, without a doubt, this program is a keeper in my opinion.
About The Anime
This is the storyline of Hayato Kisaragi, who aspires to become a Slayer one day. Hayato can board the Little Garden, a marine academy city ship, to realize his goal. When he walks in, Emile Crossford, his roommate, is met. As time passes, Hayato develops an odd feeling of familiarity with Emile. He starts to wonder whether he knows her from someplace.
However, this isn’t the only thing upsetting him. As soon as Hayato arrives at the school, he is challenged by Claire Harvey, the academy’s most formidable slayer. This is the narrative of Hayato and his quest to become the most potent slayer.
Will There Be a Season 2 Of Hundred?
Hundred Season 2 will never happen. Unfortunately, the Hundred anime was not a financially successful adaptation. That is why the second season of this anime was never planned, and the studio that animated it closed down in 2018. Furthermore, the series concluded in 2018, thus there is nothing to advertise anymore.
The Hundred anime failed to make a profit. The average number of Blu-Ray sales is roughly 1,350, which is low, and there is no merchandise and just one figure manufactured for this series. Also, the latest volume of the light novel sold only approximately 5,000 copies, and that was after the anime adaptation, so I don’t believe there’s any chance for Hundred season 2.
In addition, the company that animated this series, Production IMS, declared bankruptcy in 2018. Volume 16 also marked the end of the light novels. As a result, there is no reason why the production committee would ever agree to fund another season of this series.
The showrunner decides to make the upcoming Season of Hundred, then it might have 12 or more episodes as the past seasons also have 12 episodes. So we can expect at least 12 attacks in the upcoming Season.
Hundred Season 2 Release Date
There is no official release date for Hundred Season 2 because a second season was never confirmed, canceled, or announced, so there is no countdown, and a release date is never going to be announced because a second season will never get announced.
This is one of the anime sequels where I can confidently state that a new season and release date will never be announced. There are simply too many factors working against this series to ever receive additional anime projects. Even Twitter and the official websites haven’t been updated in the last four years.
We will update this post if there is any news or a release date by some miracle for a new Hundred anime project on the Twitter account. If you’ve given up hope that a new Hundred season will ever be produced, you can begin reading the light novel from volume 5 because the anime only covered volumes 1 through 4
Currently, no official announcement has been made about Hundred Anime Season 2. Further information about the third season is likely to be disclosed on occasion. This event will include the Japanese voice casts from the first anime seasons. On the other hand, the second season will debut by 2023, then might have 12 or more episodes as the past seasons also have 12 episodes. So we can expect at least 12 attacks in the upcoming Season.
