My Yagami Idol(s): Tenma-chan as always!



Dear All Our Beloved Staff/Fanboys/Fangirls/Skeptics/Former-of-Such and simply anybody still reading this forum,

I type here today with the biggest bag of mixed feelings I've ever had. Today I do what I should have done but didn't have the heart to do... I've been too scared to admit it, but I loved the people and the anime too much to say goodbye. I can't express how much fun I've had, and how this will always be a chapter in my life that I will remember. We started in October 2004 and have outlived ourselves, and maybe right now we're just looking for some sense of closure. Our life circumstances have changed... (psst, that long awaited gf has come) and if there's one thing I learnt, everybody needs to move on. So here it is... goodbye! (>_<) The time has come to go. We can't push on any further, so this is our letter of resignation.

But before we go... I want to say that I remember all of you who have been with us! A big thanks all of our supporters and fans who have ardently followed our work. I thank all the people who have been with us through the years, and even those who worked against us. Maybe you'll just let this be a fading memory. Or maybe you'll look back one day and smile at all the silly hours you spent with a bunch of virtual wannabes.

Let me reach out by name to all the boys and girls (or once so) who have crossed paths with WannabeFansubs:

Ohmer - good ol' founder and group clown
Zodiacers - the restless founding translator
lainlover - was he even part of the founding?
Niels - our first webmaster!
Sojiro - you know what you did
azrael - our mascot then, still cute now, he's got WF in his blood
MusashiKen - what could we have done without your translation checks
Bantam - thanks for the great website and forum
taqma - you helped Musa with those tough translations
Franky-kun - he's a keeper when it comes to timing
grimlock - helpful lad from KAA
RuFo_ThE_oNe - Were you the French artiste?
Meatbun-man - How have you been?
lefritz - He's still paying for our webserver now!
Koji - Great times with Shiny and sb
Shiny - The 1337 editorz
sssbbb - coolest QC guy ever, i hope you've found a new blulilmunkey *wink*wink
Keitaromangas - Thanks for that sushi treat ;-)
Edward_K - This man brought our distro into the modern age
Swampstorm - Devout fan turn diligent editor
bigeye - great help on the forums
impact - your irc bot is still running amok
Intrus - thanks for being with us
SnhKnives - I loved your AFX in our videos
Lopo - great distro guy
DreadWingKnight - Your BT trackers are infallible
Tatslacker - slacker... but venerable with translations
red - we enjoyed the interview with you
Foressense - you have my respect for life!
Nemo - fantastic editing
Juice - I saw your college presentation about WF!
Hinatanko - our underage girl translator, hotz too ;-D
terrukallan - this guy can do anything!
Delphideo - our grammar improved tons with you
The_Observer - observed our Harima fanclub
BLUE_rex - An avid Eri lover
wark - Mikoto-chin?
AngelsThesis - Thanks for supporting us all this time
TruePsyche - it was short but prolific, thanks for the OVAs
sputnik - You came too late =(

Thanks everybody. This is a really sad moment for me. I'm sorry to have disappointed many of you, but this is the very end of the road and we know it. Let's look back on the great times and jokes we shared happy.gif.

*Bows*
Sayonara minna-san!

It's been fun. I know I personally haven't contributed much to this forum, but I've always had fun here, School Rumble was the meal, and WF was the restaurant. A great combo. I doubt I'll ever forget my time with SR too.

I know this seems like the end, but if SR ever continues in the future, hopefully we'll have a place as good as this to meet again.
That being said, the last piece of the puzzle, chapter 9 of SRZ, has been translated guys! enjoy! See you around!

My Yagami Idol(s): Screw that.



It's been more than a year since I last posted in these forums. All these months I've been busy enough to even stop watching anime. Although, i'm still learning japanese and now watching some J-dramas to spent time in these winter vacations.
Still, it's sad to hear these forums are going to be taken down. And I'm going natsukashii about the little things that happened while I was an active member.

I must say that I'm very thankful for being able to discuss about anime (and many other stuff) with all you people.
Thanks, and live your life the fullest.

- gast!

Yeah, I'll miss SR, this forum, and the people here who are my fellow fans... sad.gif

Thank you everybody for the great times and memories we all shared together.

Thank you Sozuken and the team of Wannabe Fansubs for bringing us School Rumble and a forum that took a good slot in our life. This forum has been in my bookmarks since 2004. biggrin.gif

Heck, the IronArt and WF channel's in IRC still pop up everytime I log in because I never take them off.

I enjoyed messing around with all the fantastic characters and people of this community, it was truly a great ride.

Swampy, Foressense, Juice, Hayashi, Hitotsu, otacu, wark, angelsthesis, hanai, eAthena, townberry, shepard, albert, lord_jag, spiritus, gast, Roque, .....there are so many of you.


You all have a special spot in my heart, along with School Rumble and the lovely Eri-chan. happy.gif


And I hope I can keep in touch with some of you for a while.

Thank you and good bye. sad.gif

Thanks for the "1337 editorz", SOz. I enjoyed the time I spent with the group and wish I could have stuck around longer. It's sad to see you close down, but that's how it is sometimes. I have since moved on and founded my own scanlation/fansub group, FAKKU-Subs. I wouldn't be where I am now or have the skilz I do if you wouldn't have given a noob a chance. Hit up Nikon on Rizon sometime. I'd be nice to catch up.




My sig is better than yours.

School Rumble may have ended, but Jin Kobayashi still lives!

His new work Natsu no Arashi has school rumble parodies and his up coming Honkawa Action! is something to be seen.

So farewell for now.

Thank you guys, and also to all the EFC members. It's been such a memorable time, and up till now this remains one of the very, very few forums in which I'd been active.

I guess this will be my last message here.

It's really nice to know everyone in this forum since almost two years ago until today.

Kinda sad to see this place will becoming the part of history.

Anyway, until the end of time, I will always cherish and remember this wonderful site now and forever.

May God bless you all and cheers!
