== Hundred ==
Another “IS clone”
Predictable plot and characters.
One of the worst “IS clones” I’ve seen and that’s saying something.
Seriously, art’s garbage.
Character and mecha designs of note.
Seriously not even the little sister character is cute like wtf. That’s a sin.
I saw Hundred advertised by Crunchyroll, so I gave it a shot. If a big shot anime streaming service like Crunchyroll is showing it off, it must be good, right? Wrong.
Hundred is so predictable, I was able to call out scenes just before they actually came up. “Oh I’m gonna guess the MC has a sword for a weapon. Yep there it is.” “Oh and now he’s gonna open the door to someone undressing. Yep.” “Oh he’s got a special hidden power he doesn’t know about. Yep.” There’s no mystery, development, or originality. The characters aren’t even cute nor are the battle suits any cool. The shonen lover in me is disappointed. Predictability is not completely out of the ordinary in this type of show; like I said in Undefeated Bahamut Chronicles, shows of this type follow a pretty generic formula. But when they’re executed so poorly to the point where the show’s not even fun to watch anymore, the formula becomes tedious instead of familiar.
The only point of interest is that there are two opposing factions rather than just one. Usually, the enemy is another human faction (see Infinite Stratos or Undefeated Chronicles Bahamut) or supernatural monsters (with minor internal human conflicts). This show actually has both with the Variants (monster/human hybrids) and Savages (monster). Unfortunately, more does not mean better as neither is fully fleshed out and they just kinda fall flat on their face. It doesn’t help that the home team is also boring.
|+ Fights are okay.
+ Pink haired girl is okay I guess. She’s kinda useless though.
+ Title’s short and thus easy to remember.
|– Unmemorable characters. I don’t even remember the main character’s name.
– Everyone and their mother is a childhood friend for some convoluted reason.
– Skin tight suits can be cool or sexy. In this case, it’s not.
– Voice acting lineup has nobody of note to remember. In other words, acting is poor.
Overall: 2/100 (Poor)
