No screening on Saturday 20th January 2018

No Screening until Saturday January 27th, 2018

Apologies, as we meant to screen this week on Saturday January 20th, however the Hall maintenance people have chosen this week to resurface the floor of the Hall, meaning we won’t have access to it.
Still, the floor should be nice and shiny for us when we return on the 27th.

If you can’t wait an extra week for anime, be aware that the excellent anime movie Mary and the Witch’s Flower Will be a select cinemas from Thursday. I am given to understand that there will be sessions in the original Japanese with English subtitles, and sessions dubbed into English, so check carefully which one you go to.

If you would like to get involved a bit more, be aware that JAFWA is looking for some volunteers to help out at a couple of functions.
Firstly, we are finalising plans to run a ‘cool room’ at MadFest on the first week of March, and we are looking for a couple of volunteers to do a half-day shift to help run it.
Secondly, JAFWA is planning on doing a Bunnings Sausage Sizzle on May 5th for fundraising purposes. Does anyone wish to help cook sausages in a bun, and even < shock/horror > help serve the general public< / shock/horror >?
Please contact President Drew at the next JAFWA screening if you are interested in either of these endeavours.

The expected program for January 27th should be as follows:

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles. With assistance from a grant from

5:15pm Sakura Quest Ep 2/12
5:40pm Knight’s & Magic Ep 2/13

Screening on Saturday 13th January 2018

Screening

We hope you enjoyed the Christmas / New Year break and festivites, and are now eager to resume watching anime at JAFWA.
While we continue screening several regular series – “Restaurant to Another World”, “Made in Abyss”, “Lupin III”, and our popular retro series “Macross”, we hope to start 6 new regular series in January.

Based on the December survey, the following will becomes regular series to be screened at JAFWA starting in January:

  • Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable chapter
  • Knights & Magic
  • KonoSuba II / Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2
  • Saga of Tanya the Evil / Youjo Senki
  • Sakura Quest
  • The Ancient Magus Bride / Mahou Tsukai no Yome

There is a small possibility that we won’t have “JoJo’ Bizarre Adventure” ready for this week, so we may instead show a long promised example of Chinese anime, in the form of “Quan Zhi Gao Shou” aka ???? ala “The King’s Avatar”. While JAFWA is typically focused on Japanese anime, one can lose perspective without the occasional comparison with an example of another country’s animation.

Sakura Quest Knight's & Magic Ancient Magus Bride King's Avatar KonoSuba II Youjo Senki
JoJo: Diamond is Unbreakable

JAFWA Quiz from December 16, 2017

The 2017 JAFWA Marathon quiz – a breakdown of results. We haven’t published whom got what results, rather an overview of the answers. Your quiz sheets can be reclaimed at the next JAFWA (January 13th) if you are curious.

Section 1 – General Knowledge

  1. Robby the Robot recently sold for US$7,500,000.
  2. Potential 2020 Olympic Games competitions may or may not include: running with a piece of toast in mouth whilst late for school, both real-life Mario Kart and Mario-kart as an e-sport, Cosplay Chess, Competitive Anime Watching, Go, and e-sports.
  3. Why is the Dead Sea called the Dead Sea? Too much salt. Everyone knew the answer to this – well done.
  4. Your beloved MC (Dale) has long wished that Studio Ghibli would make a film adaption of “The Nargun and the Stars” by Patrica Wrightson. Should be available at your local library, if you didn’t read it at school.
  5. A camel can drink up to 80L of water at a time. An astute JAFWAite pointed out the flaw – camels don’t use cups.
  6. Fat is stored in a camel’s hump. It’s kept in a specific location to avoid overheating.
  7. What colour is the most commonly occurring on the flags of the world? Red
  8. In a standard deck of cards, the King of Hearts has no moustache, representing purity (as opposed to wealth, war and death for diamonds, clubs and spades respectively).
  9. Koala was nominated with a clear margin as the cutest and most photogenic animal, the humble Selfie-rat Quokka came in second.
  10. The above questions were prepared somewhat well in advance by the JAFWA committee. No-one believed this, including accusations of theft and the recording of presidential hallucinations by the secretary (which isn’t true, we use a Dictaphone to filter out the screams).

Section 2 – Japanese Knowledge

  1. “Good Evening” is pronounced Kom-ban-wa, “Good Day” is pronounced Kon-ni-chi-wa. Well done to all.
  2. What day of the year does the confectionary company Gleico promote as “Pocky Day”? November 11, because 11/11 looks like sticks of Pocky.
  3. Golden Week includes Showa Day, Constitutional Memorial Day, Greenery Day and Children’s Day, taking place from April 29 to May 5.
  4. March is Sakura-viewing time.
  5. Sailor suits for school girls and ensign uniforms for school boys replaced kimonos in acknowledgement of the Japanese Navy’s utterly overwhelming victory off what they know as Tsushima Island… in 1905.
  6. Imperial Russia were so thoroughly beaten that we cannot declare them runners-up. Final Score: Japan sunk all 11 Russian Battleships, 8 cruisers and 6 destroyers, 4380 killed, 5917 captured (including 2 Admirals), 1862 interned; Russia sunk 3 torpedo boats, killed 117, 500 wounded.
  7. When was the Japanese Film Festival on in Perth this year? Early November.
  8. What big budget movie did Anno Hideko of Studio Gainax fame recently direct? Shin Gojira.
  9. What was the name of the Japanese Battlecruiser that escorted Australian troop ships to protect them from German raiders in World War 1? The Ibuki.
  10. The four main islands that form Japan are; Hokkaido in the North, Honshu being the primary island, Kyushu and Shikoku in the South-west.

Section 3 – The Anime Section

  1. What Japanese city was the anime Flying Witch that we recently showed at JAFWA set in? Hirosaki
  2. The Major did not appear in Akira – she appeared in “Ghost in the Shell”.
  3. AC/DC sold the most albums.
  4. What is the term used for a redesign of an anime character to give them a smaller body and bigger head? There were several possible answers here – SD, BB, however everyone answered Chibi. Well Done all.
  5. In Super Dimensional Fortress Macross, Booze is wagered by the crew of Quamzhin’s/Kamjins’s fleet.
  6. In Sailor Moon, the titular character’s earth human name (Tsukino Usagi) can be translated as… Moon Rabbit.
  7. In “Bastard!!”, spells, characters and locations were all rock or heavy metal references. White Snake is the Eastern Kingdom, Judas Priest is the Southern Kingdom, Iron Maiden is the Northern Kingdom, Anthrax is the God that destroyed the old world in 7 days, Slayer is a major invocation spell, Bon Jovi was a noble Knight for the Western Kingdom of Metallicana, Halloween is a major destruction spell, and Anvil was nowhere to be seen in the OVA.
  8. How many episodes of “Card Captor Sakura” were made before 2016? – 70, and 2 movies.
  9. List 3 CLAMP titles that have been turned into anime series: we received quite a few common and a few not-so-common responses to this question, including “XXXHolic”, “Tsubasa Chronicles”, “Chobits”, “Kobato”, “Card Captor Sakura”, “X/1999” and “Magic Knights Rayearth”.
  10. What English author penned the novel that Studio Ghibli turned into the film “Howl’s Moving Castle”? – Dianna Wynne Jones.
  11. What English author penned the novels that Studio Ghibli turned into the film “Arriety”? – Mary Norton.
  12. What studio is bringing out the anime movie “Mary and the Witches Flower”? – Studio Ponoc is, formed by alumni of Studio Ghibli.
  13. In “Little Witch Academia”, the protagonist’s full name is Atsuko Karagi.
  14. How many anime movies/OAVs has Makoto Shinkai created as of 2017? 6
  15. In reference to the above question, how many can you name? I think this was our most challenging question. The possible results included “Voices of a Distant Star”, “The Place Promised in Our Early Days”, “5 Centimetres Per Second”, “Children Who Chase Lost Voices”, “The Garden of Words”, and “Your Name”.
  16. What were the two main roles that voice actress Megumi Hayashibara portrayed in “Neon Genesis Evangelion”? The (somewhat) replicable Ayanami Rei, and Pen Pen.
  17. Which anime studio created “Neon Genesis Evangelion”? – Studio Gainax
  18. Who was the first company to commercially release anime in Australia? The British distributer Manga Entertainment, in the mid-90s.
  19. What is the name of the first Super Robot? Tetsu-jin 28, in 1956. Partial points were awarded for “Mighty Atom”, who, whilst being super, is not a genre Super Robot.

Section 3 – The JAFWA round

  1. What is your favourite anime that JAFWA screened in 2017, and why? “Grimoire of Zero”, “Re:Creators”, and “Erased” were all honourable mentions, with “Little Witch Academia” being the popular choice.
  2. Not many people borrowed from the JAFWA loaner library in the last year – it’s free, and has a very large range of titles (we cannot bring them all in at once, but there is a list with Kris the Librarian, who can bring in any title you request for the next week).
  3. On a typical JAFWA screening, such as November 11, JAFWA will screen 10 episodes.
  4. JAFWA resumes on 13 January 2018.
  5. The current JAFWA committee members are:- Dale, David, Drew, Glenn, Greg, Katie, Mark, and Paul.
  6. Which associated club usually uses this Hall on the Saturdays that JAFWA does not? Westlodge, the Doctor Who Fan club.
  7. Based on attendance, what was the most popular show ever screened by JAFWA? A bonus point if you know (~ nearest 50) how many patrons attended to watch the show? One respondent knew this – 378, when JAFWA was screening the latter episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion.
  8. One point each – how many Australia-based companies and shops provide JAFWA members with a sweet discount? Possible answers include Madman (20%), Siren and Hanabee, Tactics (10%) and Little Robot in Myaree (5%).
  9. How many JAFWA-affiliated clubs in Perth can you name? We want the names. POWA at ECU Joondalup, UWAnime at UWA, the Gamer’s Guild in Ashfield.
  10. Who is JAFWA’s parent/founding club (yup, JAFWA is a part of a larger club organisation)? Since foundation, JAFWA petitioned for, and became the Zeta chapter of Cal-Animage in the US.

Section 5 – The Multimedia round

  1. B – The Kind-hearted Child of Science did not slice the legs off a fellow combatant.
  2. Possible answers include any of the Retro-item shows, or follow-up seasons of popular shows such as “Jojo’s”, “Assassination Classroom”, “Log Horizon”, “Sword Art Online” and “Working”.
  3. D – Ido and Maya combine the working parts of their two I-machines into one and use their damaged mining rig to surf an explosion off the planet in episode 2.
  4. Atom loses its right eye.
  5. C, B, D, A. In episode six of Lupin III – The Italian Adventures, Elena gives Zenigata her sob story about being hounded forever over a fortune that doesn’t exist, the detective fakes some injuries and tries to lie to the assembled press and convince them Lupin has already escaped with the money. Lupin then shows up in police uniform and leads the press and police away just before Zenigata gets caught out in his lie. Then once everyone leaves Elena then goes to check on the fortune that actually does exist and finds Lupin doubled back and she has now led him right to her giant pillar of gold bars. At which point Zenigata reveals that he also hung around by leaping in front of Elena to protect her from the advancing crooks. Lupin decides to let Zenigata have this victory and covers the gang’s escape with a smoke bomb.
  6. Souta has to hide Poco’s true identity from other people… 6 times.
  7. Aqua is most often seen creating water.
  8. Who is the first witch that Atsuko sees? Shiny Chariot, also known as Professor Ursula, when she is still a child and attends one of her concerts long before coming to the academy. Yes, this was a trick question. It asked who the first witch Atsuko sees was, not who was the first witch she sees on her way to Luna Nova Magical Academy, the video clip was meant to mislead you.
  9. Captain Heinrich Seeleman and Sarah Gold argue over shrimp and minced meat in sandwiches, whilst Admiral Flugel and Artorius discuss curry over pork cutlet. The REAL answer is… Pork Cutlet Curry Sandwiches.
  10. Bubblegum Crisis was a popular answer, and set in the year 2032. It is worth noting that Macross the First was released around 2008, a manga re-telling of the original story but updated to include known technological changes, such as mobile phones.
  11. D – Souta’s old high-school friend Shinobu Nakajima does not appear in episode 8 of “Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kemari”.
  12. Acceptable answers would have included but weren’t limited to: 18if, Restaurant to Another World, JJBA (Iggy), Kobayashi-san’s Dragon Maid, Little Witch Academia, Re:Zero (Puck), Pocco’s Udon World for the titular character, and Yokai Apartment.
  13. In Re:Creators, anime heroine Selesia Upitiria and ordinary human Souta Mizushino have their first encounter with the mysterious girl in military uniform – Altair – with the following events in order: D, A, C, B. Selesia borrows the car, and after getting the hang of driving she guesses at the button on the dashboard that must activate the vehicle’s “weapon”. Then Altair attacks them from above with a hail of swords before appearing on the road in front of them, prompting Selesia to send the car ramming into her as she and Souta leap out before it hits Altair’s wall of swords, crashes and flips. Selesia and Altair then take to the skies to duel, and Souta is left on the ground where he notices their airborne battle is appearing on news feeds. Finally, the fight ends when Meteora appears and starts firing rockets at Altair.
  14. Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency had ‘Roundabout’ by 80’s Prog-rock group Yes as it’s ending theme. A good decision.

Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 25th November 2017

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, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.
We can brainstorm questions for the Quiz to be held at the End of Year Marathon. Though that might give the attendees of the Event Afternoon an unfair advantage.

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday November 25th, 2017.

It is coming up on the end of year 2017, and we are trying to finish as many series as possible before December 16, so we can start 2018 with all new regular series. As such we are going to show double episodes of a few series to help this come about. And we want “Macross” and “Lupin” to finish on an episode that is a good place for the year end Break. So some of the other regular shows might be pushed about a bit, sorry.
Meanwhile, we had better survey and find out what our dear JAFWAites liked amongst the preview episodes, to get an idea what our new series for 2018 will be. Be warned, I hear at least one person will be making a concerted campaign to convince people to highly rate her favourite show.

Macross
Lupin III

The JAFWA End of Year marathon screening program for 2017 is receiving its final tweaks. It should be a good one. A warning, there will be a quiz. Stay tuned!

Screening on Saturday 18th November 2017

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday November 18th, 2017.

The end of 2017 is rapidly approaching, as are several of our regular series. Tonight will see the final episode of “ID-0” and “KonoSuba”. Did you enjoy these series?
This will mean that when JAFWA returns in 2018 we will need some new regular series. In order to tie in with the End of Year Marathon where we hope to show the OAV episodes, for those of you not already familiar with the manga, we will show the first episode of “The Ancient Magus Bride” TV series.
As another possible candidate, we provide the somewhat gruesome “Ousama Game” (“King’s Game”), that amongst other things shows how extreme stress can be terrible on Japanese High-schoolers.

The Ancient Magus Bride
Ousama Game

We are still tweaking the JAFWA End of Year marathon screening program for 2017. A warning, there will be a quiz. Stay tuned!
