o The deadline of our first contest, the ID contest, had ended a long time ago and the winner has been decided. Our new deviantID will be the work drawn by Niji-iro Congratulations! : ) Her prize is a request drawn by one of the members: wolfie-janice.
o I'm currently looking for new mods, because sonteen12 and edwardgrape are a bit busy. New members are still coming which makes me very happy, however, I can't handle everything by myself. I need two people who have a lot of time and are willing to manage this place. The job is to : reply to messages, add members, submit artwork in our club gallery, etc. It's not a lot of work but it requires logging in here at least 3 times a week. Please send notes to me if you're interested!
o The ID contest has a new deadline: 1 July. You can still submit works! ^^
Oofuri is a short name for "Ookiku Furikabutte"(Take a Big Swing!) The original manga was created by Asa Higuchi, a talented female mangaka who have earned several big awards for her work.
Oofuri is not just your regular-everyday sport series. The story deals more with the emotions and relationships between the characters. There's Ren Mihashi who has very low self-esteem for a pitcher, Takaya Abe who likes to be in control all the time as a catcher, Yuuichirou Tajima who is a natural genius at batting but goof off at every chance he gets, and Azusa Hanai who takes responsibility as the captain of the team while dealing with his own issues. There are many other interesting characters which make the series as entertaining as it is, but we couldn't possibly list them all here. Oofuri will definitely give you a joyful time, so go and check it out everyone! Now, let's play ball!!
