Asuna Harukaze is a girl who loves tennis to the point where she practices her swings with a pitchfork while working on the family farm. At school she is a member of the Soft Tennis Club along with the enthusiastic Kotone, food-crazy Chitose and bizarre yet talented Kurusu. With a big tournament approaching, the girls are taking practice more seriously than ever, but with Asuna’s strange and perverted logic surfacing at every turn and Chitose’s inability to win a single match, can the club emerge triumphant and make it to the nationals?
Winning a game of Mahjong is hard; getting the same score every time is practically impossible. So imagine the surprise of the school Mahjong club when Saki Miyanaga walks in and does just that. Despite her dislike for the game, her talent is obvious and it's up to the club members - the top-heavy Nodoka, the energetic Yuuki, the cunning Mako and the permanently in control club president Hisa - to persuade her to join the club and help them reach the Nationals. But even then, will their combined skills be enough to overturn some of the toughest high school players the country has to offer?
Saki and Softenni are both sport animes without falling too much into the genre. In Saki, we learn about Mahjong and in Softenni, we learn about soft tennis. However, they also rely heavily on the characters to keep up the stories pace and on sporadic humor.
Kanae, Marimo, Nasuno and Yuri are four friends who make up a tennis club at school. Whether they're going to a bakery to eat cakes, wrestling Yuri's panties from Marimo's mouth or actually playing tennis for once, the girls always manage to have a fun time in the process.
Both shows seem to revolve around school girls that are interested in tennis but hardly any tennis gets played "properly" anyway. Teekyuu is basically what you'd get if you shortened Softenni's episodes down to 3 minutes of comedy fun. I'm sure you'll enjoy one if you liked the other.
Kaname Okimura wants to learn how to swim, but has been afraid to due to a childhood accident. So how does he approach his fear of water? By joining Umisho's swimming club... but as the manager. Things are easy and slow going for Okimura, until an eccentric family moves into town, literally floating their home to the shore! Okimura watches as the hyper and childish Amuro Ninagawa and her father make their entrance, only to find out that Ninagawa is as agile as a fish in the sea she lives on. Her swimming style may be unorthodox, but she's quickly recruited into Umisho's swimming club, spicing up school life and making things interesting and complicated for Okimura...
Sports, nonsense and fanservice. Even if the activities the characters practice are completely different, the way they interact with each others and their weird antics, combined with a lot of fanservice shots and idiotic events that feel very out of place but will probably make you crack a smile, make for a good suggestion for those who enjoyed one of these series.
Umisho is heavier on the fanservice side, while Softenni is more about defying common sense for comedic results. Anyway, I'm sure fans of this kind of anime won't be disappointed.
Funko, Shigu, Eru and Ichiroku seem to be typical school girls on the surface, but they're actually powerful, dangerous guns that must be treated with care and respect! Together, they attend Seishou Academy, a special place where not only are all of the students guns, the teachers are as well. That is, except for one new educator who arrives, unaware of the crazy, dangerous times that lie ahead!
Both are ecchi focused around a group of girls. Plus the characters have very similar personalities: an aggressive girl who has a bit of an ego, a perverted girl who as a thing for her teacher, and a ditzy girl with larg breasts.
