If you are curious soft tennis is a modified version of normal tennis using rubber balls, and was created after being introduced to the east in the early 1900's. Thus, five airheads entertain us with their insane antics and personalities as they play it. Softenni is one of the most hit or miss comedies I have recently watched.

With a comedy it comes down to the characters and how they interact. The captain Chitose who is unable to hit a single ball, enjoys eating, and is basically the most annoying and least important. Compared to her we have Asuna, who is the instigator of all read more

If you wonder if you should check this out it's better to wait till there's more episodes. Maybe it'll get better in further episodes. If you want some ecchi scenes you better wait for
BD's cause producers censored everything.

Otherwise - don't bother..

I'm basing it on the first episode but, to be honest i couldn't fun anything worth enjoying.

Series tries to be moe but fails.
It tries to be funny but it's clearly forced and fails.
Tries to be ecchi but producers censored every ecchi scene.

Story is forced, doesn't matter much in this genre however...
Art is medicore.. nothing special, nothing bad.
Sound - nothing worth mentioning.

Softenni is primarily a slice of life comedy with ecchi. There is soft tennis in it, but that is more a reason to bring the characters together than a genuine focus in the actual series. I should make it clear that this is NOT a show for someone looking for a sports anime.

Being slice of life there is little substance in ways of the story. The basic setting is the Soft Tennis Club want to win nationals and then go onto Wimbledon. A rival tennis club is introduced part way through the series as are more girls and so on.

Softenni is a series full of nudity and comedy and finds a way to use them both in a masterful way.

Softennis is pretty much about a female tennis team trying to overcome al thel challenges that come their way, whether it's team-work or playing against another team with an extreme mixture of comedy. The two main female protagonists (Asuna and Kotone) are a soft tennis pair that drives the plot forward every step.

If you start watching this show, it will seem weird that it starts out on a farm, but you'll understand why later on.

Characters 8/10
Although the characters are not unique, they show a unique read more
