Screening on Saturday 28th April 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday April 28th, 2018.

STV series are so short these days, consisting of but 1-cour. Which should be 13 episodes to cover a single season, but some series have even fewer episodes. Thus tonight will be the last episode of the second series of “Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!” (God’s Blessing on this Beautiful World).

KonoSuba II

Fortunately this week we will be holding our monthly survey to determine what shows you, our wonderful JAFWAite audience, like to see in our lineup. Though it can be difficult to order them properly by ordinal scale of popularity. Every month we have a couple of survey forms that were not properly filled in.

Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 21st April 2018

Event Afternoon

JAFWA has the hall from about 12:30PM to 4:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen. I am not certain we have access to the outdoor area, but we will try to keep you off the street.
In the past people have brought along video games and the hardware to play them, and sewing machines for cosplay creating. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, and ethical. Hence selling/auctioning off unwanted relatives will fail to tick all these boxes.
Also we should probably avoid scuffing the floor of the Hall.

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday April 21st, 2018.

The new season of anime has started in Japan, and we have found a couple of sample episodes of 2018 anime series that we suspect you will appreciate. Our first preview episode we thought topical was “to the ends of the Earth”, dues to the fact that around about episode #8 our intrepid heroines travel to the foreign city of Fremantle in order to board their ice-breaker.

Sora Yori mo Toi Basho Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody Fist of the Blue Sky

Due to possible licensing issues, we have had to shelve our plans to screen the first episode of “Violet Evergarden” as a preview episode. Instead, we will re-introduce viewers to the storyline of the manliest of men, albeit it an earlier generation, with pulse-pounding, exploding-head martial arts action.

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

No Screening until Saturday April 14th, 2018

This will be our usual first Saturday of the month rest break, so worry not as JAFWA will return the next week.
Some of us are still getting over a chocolate overload from Easter. And others are looking at Greater Union cinemas and wondering about the “Sailor Moon” stage musical that is being screened on Thursday. Unless, of course, that is another sign of chocolate overdose…

The expected program for April 14th should be as follows:

Screening on Saturday 31st March 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday March 31st, 2018.

Due to weird Luni-Solar calculations, this weekend also happens to be the Easter weekend. Though the Orthodox Christians use a slightly different weird Luni-Solar calculation, so they say April 8 this year.
At any rate, this weekend is the traditional time of remembrance that rabbits are an introduced agricultural pest in Australia, and it is your patriotic duty to dispose of them all. Even the chocolate ones.
Also, Swancon 2018 is on this weekend, but we expect that most you will avoid their Saturday evening and come to JAFWA instead.

Alice to Zouroku

Due to the fact that the first episode of our new, regular series “Alice and Zouroku” will have a double-length first episode, we don’t have room this week for the next episode of “Ancient Magus Bride”. You will just have to enjoy “Lupin III” on its own.

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

The equinox has come and gone, and our old enemy the sun is going down for the count of 6 months.
To celebrate, let us watch a movie about a napping princess. As usual on a movie night, anime cosplay gets in for FREE!

Ancien and the Magic Tablet

Sorry, but we will have to leave you in suspense as to how last week’s episode of the “Ancient Magus Bride” will play out. Hopefully the Lupin III OAV we have tonight may help express our horror of the situation.

We have been having an interesting time watching “Made in Abyss”, but this 1-cour show comes to an end this week. But rejoice, it has been announced that a second season is in production.
We are also going to have two preview items tonight. One of them, “King’s Avatar” (Quan Zhi Gao Shou ????) is actually a Chinese attempt at doing anime, so we at JAFWA thought you might like to compare the cultural and artistic differences between the two countries’ anime.

We return to JAFWA after a refreshing week off, though many will have attended Madfest. Let us not forget that there was an encore screening of “Mary and the Witches’ Flower” at Luna Leederville, and some of us checked out the live action version of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable down at Hoyts Carousel.

The Great Passge

This week we will also start a new series before the Dinner Break. In order to demonstrate Japanese Culture as per JAFWA’s constitution, how better than to show the trials and tribulations of compiling a new Japanese dictionary? This rated rather high in the JAFWA surveys.

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

No screening on Saturday 3rd March 2018

No Screening until Saturday March 10th, 2018

This will be our usual first Saturday of the month rest break, so worry not as JAFWA will return the next week.
Most of you will be interested in going to MadFest at the convention Center.
But be aware that there is a few other things happening that may appeal to you. Starting Thursday at Hoyts Carousel is a limited run screening of the live-action adaption of the “Diamond is Unbreakable” arc of “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure”. It could give spoilers for what we are watching at JAFWA, and since the TV version is 39 episodes long, expect some drastic compresion of the storyline.
And there is the 8PM encore screening of Mary and the Witch’s Flower at Luna Leederville. Since MadFest closes its doors at 6PM, what else will you be doing?

The expected program for March 10th should be as follows:

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday February 24th, 2018.

As the end of the month screening, we are going to do an audience survey during the Dinner Break to determine what our dear JAFWAites enjoy on our program. To expand the selection on the survey, so we hope you will appreciate the preview episode from the new series of “Card Captor Sakura” before the Dinner Break (and try not to miss “Restaurant to Another World” too much).

Card Captor Sakura Clear Card

This week will also have the first draw in our modified Member’s Prize system. Every time one of our signed up members has attended a JAFWA screening in February has entitled them to one entry in this week’s draw. We have some large prizes pooled up, so large in fact that we are having difficulty uploading the pictures of the prizes. Do you want to be our inaugural winner?
