Screening on Saturday 19th June 2021

Come all ye wonderful JAFWA members, and nominate for the upcoming annual JAFWA election (see below) and join the committee. Decide upon your election strategies, such as suggesting that there are too many isekai shows in the current program. Nominees will be invited to the next JAFWA committee meeting to see how it is done.

We thank Sally for last week’s sausage sizzle, and apologise that the extractor fan in the kitchen wasn’t working. Oh, but didn’t it smell wonderful.

This week at JAFWA we have a couple of preview items, one of which can pretend to be historical. Come along for the cultural immersion.

Screening on Saturday 12th June 2021

This is it, the start of the official nomination period for the upcoming annual JAFWA election for the committee (see below). Already Audrey is preparing her platform around the assertion that there is too many isekai shows in the current program. Do you support her? Do you oppose this assertion?

It was a very successful Sausage sizzle we had at Bunnings Cannington last Saturday. Many thanks to everyone who participated. In the afternoon Sally was our chef extraordinaire, and she hopes to share her skills this week at JAFWA with a sausage mini-sizzle for all our attendees. Unless you are extremely vegan, you do not want to miss out on a sausage-in-a-bun cooked by Sally.

June gets off to a good start at JAFWA, as we have managed to sneak in one of the movies from our cancelled marathon screening in April. This is the sequesl to the TV series we screened at JAFWA a few years back, for those who you who have fond memories.

Event afternoon, then Screening on Saturday 29th May 2021

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 1:00PM 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, and see if your game machine can plug into it. 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.

Screening evening of May 29th 2021, after the Event Afternoon

May continues to be a wonderful month for watching anime at JAFWA, even with all the inclement weather we had last week. There is just something special about watching you favourite anime, with a Hall full of fellow otaku just outside of social distancing reach.
All the new series we were intending starting this month, have premiered. We apologise so many of them are isekai and 2nd seasons of a series we have already screened, that was just how people voted in the special survey.
This being the last JAFWA session in May, do recall that we will have this week the usual end of month Survey, along with the Member’s Prize draw.

Quite a few of out members are sad at the news that Kentrou Miura has passed away suddenly, without the chance to finish his very popular manga “Berserk”.

Screening on Saturday 22nd May 2021

May has turned out to be a wonderful month for watching anime at JAFWA. The shows, the people, even the Door Prizes just seem so much more special. We hope to see you all this week, after Tokyo Alley 9 – Travel which will be happening a few blocks away.
Any last minute changes should be found on our FaceBook page or on our webpage.
Just a reminder to come early, if permitted, as the COVID countermeasures limit the number of people we can admit, generous as that limit is.

Two and a half more regular series join the program this week. And there will be another preview episode to show a sample of what other creative and weird anime Japan produces.

probable Screening on Saturday 8th May 2021

The pandemic lockdown prevented us from screening last time, with much wailing and gnashing of teeth for those hoping for a marathon length anime binge (not to mention the pizza and sushi). We are being optimistic and planning to screen a normal program this week. Always remember that another lockdown may be called, so keep on eye-on FB or our webpage for confirmation that JAFWA is still permitted to screen.
Just a reminder to come early, if permitted, as the COVID countermeasures limit the number of people we can admit.

This week we finish the series we meant to finish in April, therefore there is only room to start four new regular series this week.

No Screening on Saturday 1st May 2021

No JAFWA on the first Saturday of May (1st).

Life! that glorious thing called “Life” can be enjoyed and celebrated this week!
Hopefully this will get us over the disappointment of missing out on JAFWA (a marathon-length and movie filled session at that!) last time, thanks to the lockdown to prevent the pandemic from plaguing us. Your JAFWA committee is scrambling to fix the programs to account for the dispersement of last week, so bear with us if there are a couple of holes in it at this short notice. It will be good to go next time.

cancelled Marathon Screening on Saturday 24th April 2021

Cancelled!

The last minute 3 day Lockdown pre-empts JAFWA’s glorious marathon.

see below for what it would have been. Don’t yet know when we can reschedule the marathon. May screenings should be as normal.

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

Woo Hoo! This year we are having our annual marathon length screening in April, when the Sakura bloom in Japan, rather than hot December. Remember that JAFWA starts screening at 1:30PM today.
Just a reminder to come early, as the COVID countermeasures limit the number of people we can admit.

We will have animated movies, as well as finish off several of our regular series so we start afresh in May.
We will also do a pizza run, and have a sushi platter. Don’t miss it!

Unfortunately nobody expressed enough interest for us to try doing an auction during the marathon screening.

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of CoVid-19, 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. Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. There will be Contract Tracing, either by the SafeWA app on your keitai (mobile phones), or by signing in at the contact tracing sheet at the front desk. And we need to wipe the chairs down with disinfectant before they are stacked away.

Screening on Saturday 17th April 2021

We are coming to the end of a few regular series this week at JAFWA, so this week we will hold a survey to help decide what new regular series (we need at least 4) we put on the program in May.
Just a reminder to come early, as the COVID countermeasures limit the number of people we can admit.

This week we farewell our supernatural mystery solver in “In/Spectre”. And we will have a double episode of “Revolutionary Girl Utena”, to help speed up the arrival of May.
But best of all, we have decided on one of the new regular series that is to start – the second series of Re:Zero. But since it has been a while since we have seen the first series, we thought we would first put on an OAV to help remind you of the series. So after the terrible doom and gloom our protagonist suffered in the first series, our protagonist and friends get to relax and enjoy some winter fun.
