Sentai Filmworks has announced that the company has acquired the license for the Softenni! anime, which is based on the manga series written and illustrated by Ryo Azuchi.
The series is described as:
Asuna is a girl who loves tennis to the point where she practices her swings with a pitchfork while working on the family farm. At school she is a member of the Soft Tennis Club along with the enthusiastic Kotone, food-crazy Chitose and bizarre yet talented Kurusu. With a big tournament approaching, the girls are taking practice more seriously than ever, but with Asuna’s strange and perverted logic surfacing at every turn and Chitose’s inability to win a single match, can the club emerge triumphant and make it to the nationals?
Sentai Filmworks says the company will be making Softenni! available through digital outlets “soon,” with a home video release to follow.
