Event Afternoon before JAFWA screening

JAFWA has the hall from 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. Can you talk Sally and Leanne into bringing sewing machines? Maybe some table tennis, freestyle?

These are just a couple of suggestion. What do you want to do? Just so long as it legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.

Screening

The Equinox has come and gone, or perhaps I should say the Equisol, for now our old enemy the sun gains ascendancy. Soon we shall call upon Kris in the library to bring forth the sun disactivator! Now if only the nights were less chilly.

Three new regular series start this week, as voted in by our dear JAFWAite attendees. What will you vote for in the next survey?

There may be eccentric nobility here as well, but there are also friends, and at least she can do her job.

Early morning is a fine time to be out in the woods collecting ingredients for your medicines, as long as you don’t lose track if time and aren’t late opening the shop. But on this day Shirayuki has bigger problems than being late for work; Prince Raj, the ruler of her town, desires a fair maiden to claim as his own. And his informants have named Shirayuki as the fairest, and thanks to her red hair the rarest, of maidens in all of Tanbarun.

And then one day, quite by accident, Takeo meets Rinko Yamato …

He and his companions were given little choice; serve in the militia defending the region from the various monsters or starve, and so they struggle to make a living as soldiers. There is nothing easy about this life and making ends meet is a challenge for six people who, it seems, had never held weapons before.

Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 10th September, 2016

Screening

We spring into Haru, with the program for September 10th, 2016 below.

We return to JAFWA after having said goodbye to a faithful old series. “Fairy Tail” is shown no more, a more family (restaraunt) friendly anime has been chosen in its place, the third season of “Working!!!”. Once more we shall delight in the everyday goings on of eccentric restaraunt, you yourself have friends no more eccentric than these people I suspect.

Due to the series that won the survey last session, we have had to re-arrange the program somewhat. Too many of these series are more than 1-cour in length, thus we won’t be able to finsish screening them by the end of year, though we are trying to arrange them nicely. While we will have to put off the next retro series until October, we can sneak in a single preview episode this night.

How about, after 366 TV episodes, “Bleach” anime has finally ended. When we first started screening “Bleach” at JAFWA, it was thought that it was 1-cour show, perhaps 2-cour at most. How wrong we were. Memories.

Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 27th August, 2016

Screening

Tonight is the final episode of the original “Oh! My Goddess”, and tonight’s episode is longer than normal. We will start maybe 5 minutes earlier. Hopefully it will not be as apocalyptic as the Olympics in “Akira”.

The results of the Bean Poll are in. A mere 9 people voted for JAFWA to continue screening “Fairy Tail”, while 21 voted otherwise. Thus tonight we will screen one last episode of “Fairy Tail” before replacing it in September. In order to replace it, this week we will have a survey to determine what we replace it with.
Not to mention we have nearly finished “Flying Witch” and “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress”, so we are looking for replacement series for those two as well.

For the replacements for “Fairy Tail” and “Flying Witch”, we will be deciding from:- “Working!!!”, “Time Travel Shoujo”, “Akagami no Shirayuki-hime/Snow White with the Red Hair”, “Amanchu!”, “Ore Monogatari!/My Love Story”, and “Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso/You’re Lie in April”.

For the replacement for “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress”, we will be deciding from:- “Beserk (2016)”, “Re:Zero Kara Hajimeri Isekai Seikatsu/Re:Life in Another World Starting from Zero”, “Overlord”, “Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru/A Corpse is Buried Under Sakurako’s Feet”.
Vote wisely.

Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 20th August, 2016

Screening

Below is the program for August 20th, 2016.

We are going to have a Bean Poll as to whether to continue regular screening of “Fairy Tail”, since it has been polling poorly in the monthly surveys. If you vote ‘No’, be aware that we don’t yet have a replacement regular item. We would have to vote on that the next week. The suggestion for replacement show so far are “Fairy Tail Zero”, “Bunkou: Stray Dogs” and “Sailor Moon”. Our Suggestion box is open to other ideas. I am half hoping that somebody suggests the retro series “Card Captor Sakura”.
Unfortunately this seems to have distracted people from the idea of having an auction during the Dinner Break. Do you want to bring lots of money to bid on anime-related items during the Dinner Break this Saturday?

Though if you want distractions, we are not going to have just, not even just two, but three preview episodes this week.

Week off Saturday 6th August, 2016

Screening

There will be no JAFWA screening on August 6th, for it is our usual beginning of month weekend off.

Go out and experience this thing called “Life”.

Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 30th July, 2016

Screening

Below is the program for July 30th, 2016.

The Election has been decided, with Nathaniel “Nephi” Mitchell graciously bowing out leaving the way for Paul “Redraw” Clune to join the JAFWA committee.

Tonight is going to be a movie night, but we haven’t found a full-length movie that seem appropriate, so instead we will have a selection of shorter movies and OAVs.
Typically on a movie night we offer free entry to those people in anime cosplay, but we suspect most people would prefer to rug up a bit more than the typical anime costume provides.

Another reason to attend – we will be auctioning off good stuff during the Dinner Break. Bring Lots of Money.

Again we would like to thank Lotteries West, who are preparing to provide us with a grant to continue our good work.

Synopsis

Fairy Tail second series

While searching for Ultear, Jellal and Meledy are approached by Doranbolt, who reveals that he has wiped the Magic Council’s memories of the dragon attack.

Flying Witch

The cheerful and pleasant Kowata Makoto has come to Aomori to complete high school. She will be boarding with her cousin Muramoto Kei. Nothing unusual there right? Well, not quite.

It seems that Mari’s father invented a time machine …

Tonight’s Episodes:Gilbert the Sage

Mari Hayase is more likely to take after her patissier mother than her scientist father. Not that her family has seen or heard from her father in 3 years, which isn’t too remarkable for him. But when she visit’s her friend Waka’s house, she discovers that Waka’s brother has one of her father’s books. And that the necklace that her father gave her, triggers and transports her through time. A Japanese schol uniform is considered scandalous in England of several centuries ago. Will Waka get her friend back? Will Mari find a clue to where, and when, her father is?

Movie Timeslot Item 2 – Charlotte OVA

Otosaka Yuu has the ability to take over other people’s bodies, albiet only for a few seconds.

Koutetsujou no Kabaneri (Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress)

Ikoma is a lowly engineer in the walled city of Arawakin, one of a series of city-stations linked together by rail lines and serviced by massive, armour-plated steam trains.

Fujinuma Satoru is just another failed manga artist, making ends meet as a cynical pizza delivery boy. But there is one thing in his life that is genuinely extraordinary. From time to time, Satoru finds himself involuntarily transported a short distance back in time, giving him the chance to prevent an imminent disaster. He never knows exactly what he’s supposed to prevent, but that doesn’t stop him from trying. For all his cynicism Satoru wants to help others, because there is one instance from his childhood, far enough back that he barely remembers any of it, where he failed.

Tonight’s Episodes:Out of Control

… An ancient enemy of the family has returned.

Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 23rd July, 2016

Screening

Below is the program for July 23rd, 2016.

Thank you to everyone who attended the AGM last week. I hope you all found it worthwhile.

But the big surprise was the election. Hard to imagine that Paul Clune and Nathaniel Mitchell got the exact same number of votes, so we can’t yet tell who is in the committee, and who is not. You will have to come along this week and help decide. Much as we have a morbid fascination with the idea of tying them together at the wrist and giving each of them a knife, we do have to clean up the Hall at the end of the night, so a less violent election decider will have to take place.
Not to mention that we have a selection of fine anime to watch. Including a world domination preview (which somehow appeals to me), and a fine retro show from yesteryear.

Another reason to attend – we will be auctioning off good stuff during the Dinner Break. Bring Lots of Money.

Or you could use the money on the Madman Mid-Year sale. We save on postage costs if we order in bulk, and I have no idea if the club’s discount will stack with the sale.

Again we would like to thank Lotteries West, who are preparing to provide us with a grant to continue our good work.
