Might look boring but sometimes an anime like this can be good
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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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
