Might look boring but sometimes an anime like this can be good :heh:
My friend told me (who had some of the raw) that it's actually quite good. I guess I'll try it when it comes out.

I've seen tennis clubs in many anime, but aside from only hearing secondhand about the big one, I have yet to see an actual tennis anime. If Bamboo Blade can introduce me to kendo, Umisho to swimming and Saki to mahjong, I can certainly be up for a round of tennis.

I thought that about Ookiku Furikabutte, I mean I never liked watching baseball cause it's boring to watch but it's great fun to actually play.
And with that I thought meh when I first checked it out but the more I read the more I found it fascinating and came to love it(even tho I still think watching baseball is boring RL)

Tennis I can enjoy watching and well this looks like it might be alot of fun.
Female middle school soft tennis club?
Me likes the sounds of that:D

Oh and a quick google search about Soft Tennis(yes I didn't know what soft tennis was) makes me think it's just like softball is to baseball, would I be wrong in thinking that?


P.S Midonin's post got me thinking, one series I would love to see a anime for is Baggata Way.
Just like Ookiku Furikabutte, Baggata Way done the same with Lacrosse. wasn't a sport I ever thought much of but I have played it before and did enjoy it.

Sofuteni Casting Revealed;
http://animapple.blogspot.com/2010/1...-revealed.html

...w-t-f?.... Why seiyuu casting is so good?

Bonta Kun 2010-12-27 12:58

Damn I didn't expect that, at best I thought a couple of big names but thats 1 hell of a VA list.
Now I'm really looking forward to this!

Midonin 2011-02-10 13:04

Add this show to the ever increasing list of shows for the spring season, which is constantly increasing.

felix 2011-02-10 13:08

I love tennis, this should be enjoyable.

Midonin 2011-02-10 13:48

Almost forgot.

Website!

Fixed it for you. (female tennis = official pantsu-shot sport of the world :heh:)

Seriously though, I'd be surprise if this one doesn't have that much fanservice and echii content in the anime format.

SonicSpeed 2011-02-10 21:53

Wow...I hope it's like Prince of Tennis.. :D

Midonin 2011-02-10 21:56

The five main girls on the website have the following voices:

Asuna (pink-haired girl): Kanae Itou
Kotone (twintails): Eri Kitamura
Chitose (green hair and glasses): Shizuka Itou
Kurusu (dark-skinned oddball): Satomi Akesaka
Elizabeth Warren (the blatantly American one): Sayuri Yahagi

could be good, ill check it out as i like tennis

Midonin 2011-02-20 22:34

Looks like the OP will be by ULTRA-PRISM (Ika Musume OP, Rio ED). And if that sets the tone for the series, I see good things on the horizon.

Oh yeah it's confirmed !

Ravenblitz 2011-02-21 07:08

light comedy and drama anime suits my taste and... Pantsu of course

Midonin 2011-03-15 21:09

Two bits of news.

The first is the singer of the ED. It's Asuna herself, Kanae Ito. Another sports series with Kanae on the ED, eh? Glad to see her star rising.

For the other, we have our first promo after the website reversioned itself. My score on the promo? 15-Love!

Ultra Prism and Kanae Ito also doing the respective opening and ending themes of Ika Musume. So, it will be on the same style ? Sofuteni looks like the second season of Ika Musume just because the opening and ending themes will be on the same style maybe.

Midonin 2011-03-29 17:17

The ED theme by Kanae Ito translates to "standing on my tiptoes". Taking that into account with what little I know of Kanae's character (she's a dreamer, full of energy), I feel a smile cracking across my face just from thinking about it.

Midonin 2011-03-31 23:02

I have no idea why my interest in this series is as high it is despite the knowledge I have being close to nothing.

That said.

OP, TV size
ED, TV size
