Neko no Hi

JAFWA continues its mission to make people embrace the cultural diversity of Japanese anime, and this week we demonstrate some of the other anime available in Japan, in a spin-off of a popular franchise from 2011.

This is official notification that JAFWA is plaaning to have a Special General Meeting of its signed up members during the Dinner Break of Saturday 22nd February. As attendees may recall, the air conditioning was not sufficient at the Marathon screening in December, and we wish to consult with our members about what we do this year.

On a side note, we had an unexpected addition to the program last week, the 5 minute “Out of Sight”. We hope no one minded, but I thought it was a nice contrast to the super sensory ESP of the dhow before hand.
We thank Greg for finding this little gem. Does anyone else have any cute short items we can play?
