2011 comedy about soft tennis picked up for home video distribution

North American anime distributor Sentai Filmworks announced on Thursday that it has licensed the 12-episode 2011 comedy anime Softenni! for digital and home video distribution.

Sentai Filmworks describes the story:

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!

Ryo Aduchi launched the original manga in 2009 and ended the series in 2012. JManga began publishing the manga in English online in 2012 before shutting down in 2013.
