Sentai Filmworks announces acquisition of SOFTENNI!
Sentai Filmworks has announced its acquisition of the 2011 soft tennis comedy Softenni! Based on the original 2008 manga series written and illustrated by Ryo Azuchi, Softenni! follows the exploits of Asuna Harukaze, a girl with an almost obsessive love for soft tennis, a popular form of tennis developed in Japan using softer, rubber tennis balls. Together with her equally quirky (and sometimes overly enthusiastic) teammates, Asuna does her best to return the challenges that school life and tennis training launch at her!
The anime series was produced by anime studio Xebec (Argevollen, Motto To Love Ru, Negima!) and directed by Ryouki Kamitsubo.
Softenni! will soon be available through select digital outlets, with a home video release to follow.
