Screening on Saturday 26th September 2020

Hopefully we won’t have another blowy weather as we did last week on International Talk Like A Pirate Day, which caused us to shiver our timbers a little. Though it did add the correct atmospherics at one point, during the Eizouken episode.
So rejoice that the screenings continue here at JAFWA.

As we await the upcoming anime season starting in October, we preview another episode suggested by one of our dear JAFWAites, from the monthly Survey. Which should remond us that this month’s Survey (and Monthly Member’s Prize draw) is also happening this week. Don’t miss it!
And we also have the second instalment of the Psycho-Pass movie trilogy.

New Game Psycho Pass Sinners of the System 2

JAFWA’s 30th anniversary is quickly approaching, and a reminder that we still have a limited number of tickets for a Japanese Tea Ceremony on the day. Buy your ticket early! President Drew will be selling them this week.

As a side note, quite a few people seem to think 2020 is not a very good year. Be aware that we have entered the new calendar season, and some Japanese calendars have been listed already, such as here and here. I have already taken an order. Do you also want to be cheered up by 2021?

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of Corona, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
Help would be welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19. Set Up begins ~4:45pm, while the Screening should begin at 5:15pm, or later should the set-up not yet be complete. Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. And we need to wipe the chairs down before they are stacked away.

Screening on Saturday 19th September 2020

Life here is WA has been spared the worst of the pandemic, and we are carefully celebrating, as with the recent South West Festival of Japan down in Bunbury. And let us not forget that screenings continue here at JAFWA.
As you may have noticed last week, our banner sign has attracted some of the more curious of the South Perth residents, and we hope to see more new faces in the following weeks. Excellent wishes to these new friends of ours.

While the pandemic has upset the production of anime in Japan for a few months, the upcoming season in October looks to be chock full of delights, though more than a few seem to be sequel seasons to popular anime. The current paucity of titles is soon to explode, but none-the-less we may have found a couple of preview episodes, based off of comments from our dear JAFWAites in the monthly Surveys, for your consideration.

Screening on Saturday 12th September 2020

How the year goes so fast. According to the Bureau of Meterology it is now Spring, and JAFWA lifts your heart and soul as the screenings continue.
Thanks to everyone who came to the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle. Somehow the JAFWA effort makes them tastier.

Along with our regular program, we include the puntastic preview episode of another anime produced in Japan, but not yet fitted into the JAFWA program, for your consideration. Please enjoy.

Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 29th August 2020

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 1PM 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 nerf guns, 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, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.

Screening

This final weekend in August, the last one before the Bureau of Meterology says it is Spring, JAFWA warms you heart and soul as the screenings continue.

As per usual during the last screening in the month, two rather interesting things happen. Thye first is our monthly survey, as we attempt to determine what you, our dear JAFWAite audience members like seeing in our program, by means of an ordinal scaling method.
The second thing is that it will be a our monthly member’s prize draw. Each week in August that our JAFWA members have attended, gets them 1 chance in the prize draw. Have you been atending JAFWA enough?

We will even include a preview episode of some of the other anime produced in Japan, for your consideration.
JAFWA is also hoping to show the first of the 3 “Psycho Pass: Sinners of the System” movies, though we are having some technical difficulties, and may not be able to provide it this week.

Houkago Teibo Nisshi Sinners of the System

As a side note, quite a few people seem to think 2020 is not a very good year. Be aware that we are approaching the new calendar season, and a few Japanese calendars have been pre-listed already, such as here and here. Do you want to be cheered up by 2021?

Screening on Saturday 22nd August 2020

Though Winter tries to impede us, the JAFWA screenings continue throughout August.
On a personal note, I was very gratified to see so many people show up last week. Though it was beginning to cramp the social isolation rules about how much space everybody requires. If it continues, we may have to see about re-aligning the tables to let more people in.

But that is a matter for your elected JAFWA committee. Our dear audience members can relax and enjoy the cultural aspects of the smorgasbourd of anime episodes we have on display. We shall even include a preview episodeof some of the other anime produced in Japan.

Screening on Saturday 15th August 2020

The JAFWA screenings continue throughout August.
Though I feel like I let down the team by not properly celebrating Patlabor Day on August 10th. Do you know where you Ingrams are?

Still the excitment continues at JAFWA, as we start another regular series this week, the oft requested “Eizouken”. With a bonus of two different preview episodes to tantalise your anime palate.

Screening on Saturday 8th August 2020

The JAFWA screenings continue in August. Though we should probably take a a moment to recall that this week marks the 75th anniversary of the two times that nuclear weapons were used in warfare – may it never happen again.
To cheer ourselves up, let us watch a weird and wacky preview from Japan, which makes me wish that the “Steel Ball Run” chapter of “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure” would be animated. And we start our new regular series “Somali and the Forest Guardian”, that was delayed from last month.
