The teen adolescence story revolves around the coming-of-age of boys in a junior high school's soft tennis team, which is on the verge of shutting down. In the video above, the character Tōma Shinjō asks Maki Katsuragi to join the team for his vaunted abilities, and mentions a summer competition. Katsuragi asks for money in return for joining the team.

What is "soft tennis"? How's it different from regular tennis?

From Wikipedia:
Quote:
Soft tennis is a racket game played on a court of two halves, separated by a net. Like regular tennis, it is played by individuals (singles) or pairs (doubles), whose object is to hit the ball over the net, landing within the confines of the court, with the aim of preventing one's opponent from being able to hit it back. Soft tennis differs from regular tennis in that it uses soft rubber balls instead of hard yellow balls
I think Softenni! is the only other anime I can think of that it has a soft tennis theme in it back in 2011, sadly it is barely about that and is more of a wacky ecchi comedy similar to Teekyuu!.

Lol, when I saw that image I immediately thought “Oh, an anime about working at Lawson’s? That had to happen sooner or later.”

Man - potential non-Comiket teen male romance series from the creator of Noein, and you can hear a pin drop? I suppose at this point most anime fans don't even know what Noein is, but still - a little surprising. This is a show that has the potential to be notable on many levels.
