WannabeFansubs started up when a group of lame anime
freaks decided that anime wasn't being subbed the way it was supposed
to be, and decided to take matters into their own hands.
Fansubbing started out as a hobby, a part-time job, and sometimes,
as a necessity that arises from not being able to watch hentai and know
what is going on. There were no promises. There were no series. There
were no quality checks and there were no complaints about encodes being
crappy, or pressure to finish a release by a certain deadline. It was
voluntary and exclusive to the group. Everyone did their job because
everyone in the team loved doing it and enjoyed the final outcome, not
because they were part of a group and the project leader starts throwing
work in your face.
That's the way we feel fansubbing should be. So here we are bringing
you rare series that haven't been fansubbed, but definitely deserve
to be! We make no promises. We don't tell you we have the best encodes,
or how fast we can release episodes, but we give you our best, because
we want to be. We may not be a fansubbing group as it is typically perceived
today, but hey, we are 'WannabeFansubs'.

Site and Media
This site is hosted by Banime.com, 2006 redesign and scripting
by SOzuken and azrael. New banners or ideas are continually being
accepted. Please talk to the WannabeStaff
if you would like to contribute.
The Media pages of this site are reserved for informational purposes
only. You can get episode and/or release notes here as well as other
information regarding buying or getting anime media. As a fansubbing
group, WannabeFansubs enjoys translating and subbing anime, but
the mass distribution of such media is questionable, in particular to the
long-term standing integrity of the site. No downloads
of any anime, licensed or not licensed in North America, will be
found on these pages. It is easy to refer to Google or other domains
that have the 'rights' to listing such episodes.
The WannabeFansubs Forums started small in November 2004. It has
since grown into a large and thriving community of School Rumble
fans, featuring fan clubs such as the Tenma,
clubs. There are currently over 4,000 members, many who unfortunately
became dormant after School Rumble Season 1 ended. The Forums nonetheless
have become a relatively established meeting place for devoted fans
throughout the internet.
The Forums are moderated by the Wannabe Staff and the Wannabe Moderators,
both which can be viewed under the Forum's member listings. The
forum policy aims for everybody to be able to join in without being
intimidated or coerced. Moderation is therefore done to encourage
freedom of expression, a non-threatening environment, maybe a few
jokes here and there, but in general for the overall fun and enjoyment
of everybody. WannabeFansubs is, after all, a fansub group, and
we're here as fansubbing fans because it's enjoyable for us as a
hobby, and we hope that through the Forums we can get participation
and make it equally as enjoyable for you, the watching fan.
The Wannabe Wiki is a joint effort by the Wannabe Staff, who provide
technical assistance, and the WannabeFansubs Forums who provide
much assistance with content. The Wiki is open to contribution by
everyone, but we ask that you respect the contribution efforts of
others and abide by any of the rules or conditions that are present.
School Rumble is the main theme of the Wannabe Wiki and thus is
the focus in terms of content. In addition to this, the Wannabe
Wiki is distinctly different from sites like Wikipedia.org, also
because our content is not necessarily strict hard facts or a boring
compilation of lists. We encourage fun, interesting, and unique
ideas to be contributed. See the writing guidelines of the wiki,
and we hope that browsing the wiki will not only be informationally
enlightening, but give you a few chuckles here and there as well.
