The latest issue of Mag Garden’s Monthly Comic Blade magazine has announced that Ryo Aduchi will finish his Softenni manga series in the next issue on 30 November. Launched back in 2008, the manga follows middle school student Asuna Harukaze and her teammates, who are members of the school’s soft tennis team. They are all intent on winning the soft tennis national championship but must also deal with their adventurous school lives.
A television anime adaptation of softenni was released by Xebec in April 2011. The manga now has seven volumes, and JManga, having added the series to its online catalogue in May, has released the first three volumes in English on its website.
