Yes, the end.

This is it. The site has been moved to a new server, it's resting place for all eternity. My work here is done, and it's time for us to take our place in history.

Truly the end...?
Posted Sunday, 02 August 2009 by lefritz
I am saddened to say that after reading SOzuken's post, I have made the difficult decision to cancel the server that this site is run on. The lease of the server runs out on August 15th, and on that day it will be shut down. It does sadden me to make this move, and I hope you all can forgive me; I know that this site has meant a lot to a great many people in the past.
However, I hope that my retreat from hosting will not be the last act of WF. I would love it if someone else would take up the role of hosting this wonderful forum. To this end, I have taken a back-up of the whole site today, and intend to do so on the 14th as well, and have this backup on my personal computer. If anyone wants to get a small hosting plan organised and upload the site onto this then they will have my full support (although I feel I must ask for SOzuken's permission first...), and I will help in any way possible - not least by providing the backup of the site. The server needs only a small bandwidth allocation, you guys are pretty light on usage, but does need mysql or similar to run (in theory about 8 databases, but in reality only one or two are needed). Also, the backup is 2GB big, so it needs more hard-drive space than that. SOzuken holds the domain name, but I'm sure he'd be happy to transfer everything over to someone else.
I really do hope that this site can keep going, you guys are all awesome.
If you want to get in contact with me (for any reason) it's "lefritz at gmail.com".

Sayonara ~ (Forum Shutdown)
Posted Thursday, 23 July 2009 by SOzuken
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.

School Rumble 3rd Term - Episode 25
Posted Wednesday, 30 July 2008 by Nemo
After much anticipation, WF has released the first School Rumble San Gakki OVA. While this is listed as Episode 25, it is one of two OVA episodes that are being bundled with the last two volumes of the School Rumble manga series in Japan.
Episode 26, which is expected to be the conclusion of the series, is scheduled to be out in September. Right now, there is no confirmation that "Episodes 1 - 24" will ever be produced. There is a summary of the episodes on the official School Rumble website, but it's in Japanese.
I would like to give a special thanks to 4cat, TruePsyche, Swampstorm, terrukallan and everyone who worked on the show. Also to azrael, Hinatanko, Keitaromangas, DreadWingKnight and our QC team for their support. Finally, everyone needs to join me in thanking SOzuken - our fearless leader. This group would not exist if it weren't for him and his affection for the School Rumble universe.
I will answer some Frequently Asked Questions in the forum discussion below.
- Nemo out
