Synopsis

Akagami no Shirayukihime – (Shirayuki (“Snow white”) princess of the red hair)

Shirayuki is a young pharmacist from the kingdom of Tanbarun who is cheerful, spirited and dedicated to her job. She also has brilliant red hair, which is very rare. When the first prince of Tanbarun decides to claim her unique beauty for himself, Shirayuki flees to the neighbouring kingdom of Clarines to start her life over. There may be eccentric nobility here as well, but there are also friends, and at least she can do her job.

This evening’s Episode:Feelings that Connect and Reach

While standing as Shirayuki’s protector, Obi learns more about her, while Zen finally recognizes his merit and makes him an official retainer of his.

Working!!! (season 3)

The little restaurant of Wagnaria has a very eccentric staff that, against all odds, keep the place running and the customers coming back. Amidst the scheming assistant chef, the blasé boss, the katana wielding head waitress, the androphobe and the freeloader is Takanashi Souta, a high school student lured into working here by his obsession with anything small and cute … like waitress Taneshima Popura.

This evening’s Episode:Fatal Situation

As Popura becomes more aware of the relationships blooming around her, she and Aoi question Otoo about the restaurant’s stance on romantic relationships. Later, Minegishi comes to the restaurant to tell S?ta something and gets punched by Mahiru, leading her to feel she hasn’t gotten over her androphobia. But S?ta will have to encounter something more fearful.

Amaama to Inazuma (Sweetness and Lightning)

Kohei Inuzuka is a teacher and a recent widower, raising his young daughter alone. With a full time job keeping him busy, little Tsumugi has been getting mostly pre-packaged meals. But a chance encounter with one of his students, Kotori Iida, leads Kohei to take up cooking in order to provide proper meals for his daughter.

This evening’s Episode:Uniforms and Pot Rice

K?hei Inuzuka is an assistant teacher who has been raising his daughter, Tsumugi, by himself following the death of his wife, Tae, six months ago, often feeding her pre-made bento lunches. They meet K?hei’s student Kotori, who invites them to her family’s restaurant. That night, K?hei sees Tsumugi craving a proper meal like her mother used to make.

retro – Bubblegum Crisis

In the near future, Tokyo was left flattened as a result from a great earthquake. A new city, MegaTokyo, was then recreated due in no small part from the aid of a multi-million dollar company, Genom Corp. Genom created and mass-produced biomechanical creatures called Boomers to aid in the restoration of MegaTokyo. When the Boomers began to run out of control, the ADPolice at first tried to stop them, but they proved to be far more difficult to deal with than was first imagined. Under the ever looming Boomer threat, a group of four girls from varying degrees of society banded together. Calling themselves The Knight Sabers, they were the only ones with enough firepower and resourcefullness to defend the fledgling MegaTokyo from Genom and its berserk Boomers.

This evening’s Episode:Tinsel City Rhapsody

The Knight Sabers are hired to rescue a little girl from a group of kidnappers, but the girl is far more than she seems…

Ore Monogatari! (My Love Story!)

Takeo Gouda is tall. No, Takeo Gouda is huge. He’s a high-schooler in a giant’s body. That’s been great for all the school sporting clubs he was part of, but less useful in his attempts to find love. But the real problem there is his handsome best friend Makoto Sunakawa, who ends up getting confessions from everyone Takeo likes. In fact it happens so often Takeo now expects it. And then one day, quite by accident, Takeo meets Rinko Yamato …

This evening’s Episode:My Friend and I

On June 15, after seeing his friend Makoto Sunakawa off, Takeo begins his birthday outing with Rinko, following the plan that Makoto had laid out for him. After spending the day bowling and going to a fancy restaurant, Takeo keeps thinking about Makoto, and finally tells Rinko about Sunakawa’s father’s surgery.

ReLife

Kaizaki Arata is 27 years old and has held a full time job for a grand total of 3 months (quitting because it “wasn’t a fit for his talents”). He spends his days getting turned down at job interviews, lying to his friends about having a job, and moping around his apartment. When his parents finally get sick of sending him money he is thrown a lifeline by Yoake Ryou, a representative of the RELife Company. RELife gives jobless deadbeats like Arata a new lease on life… By giving them a pill that makes them look like teenagers again and having them repeat high school.

Tonight’s Episode:Kaizaki Arata ( 27 ) Unemployed

Kaizaki Arata has managed to become a NEET, one of a growing number, a social ill that the Japanese Government hopes to alleviate. Hiding his unemployment from employed friends, and desperately trying to live on an allowance from his parents, despair is in his near future when unexpectedly a stranger named Ry? Yoake offers him a deal – become an experimental guinea pig to test the social effects of a new drug called ReLIFE.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (Yamada and the Seven Witches)

Ryuu Yamada’s, well deserved, reputation as a delinquent is no longer his biggest problem. After an accident on the stairs causes himself and the school’s top student Urara Shiraishi to swap bodies, the discovery of this strange ability makes his life a great deal more complicated. But for the gruff, friendless Yamada, spending some time literally in other people’s shoes might not be such a bad thing..

Tonight’s Episode:Turnover

Yamada is in the staff room, getting chewed out by his teacher for his poor behaviour both in and out of class. It’s not a lecture he wants to hear, he left his previous school just to avoid being known as a delinquent but it seems things are no different here. Having the teacher compare him to the model student Shiraishi is just infuriating, so when Yamada spots her a few moments later on the stairwell, he decides to do something about it …

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Re: Life in a Different World from Zero)

Being teleported to a fantasy world means you’re the chosen one, right? Natsuki Subaru certainly thought so, but it seems he’s not the fated hero, he’s just another guy in a world full of wizards, warriors and demi-humans. Still, there are decent people in this world and Subaru quickly finds people willing to lend him a hand, people he wants to help in return. But how can a mere high school student hope to challenge the monstrous and magical forces of this world? After all he only gets one shot at this, right?

Tonight’s Episode:I Cried, Cried My Lungs Out, and Stopped Crying

Subaru is once again revived at the first day in the Roswaal manor. Realizing that his trust level with the maid twins is important, he asks to work at the mansion as a butler again. All the while trying to learn enough about the fatal curse, and shadow magic, and witches, and … It is possible that Subaru is trying too hard.

Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru (A Corpse is Buried Under Sakurako’s Feet)

Tatewaki Shoutarou has a life outside his high school, one that makes the drama and socialising of his peers seem far less important to him. He assists Sakurako Kujou, an unsociable and obsessive collector of bones and the niece of a prominent forensic scientist. But this eccentric isn’t just interested in bones, she is an expert in them. When she and Shotaro go out collecting, they seem to have a knack for finding human remains, and Sakurako’s keen eye and forensic knowledge can quickly tell what befell the previous owner of the latest set of bones she has become obsessed with.

Tonight’s Episode:The Entrusted Bones, Part 1

Sakurako comes to Sh?tar?’s school for their culture festival, with Sh?tar?’s class running a maid café. Somehow she makes her way to the science classroom, and after voicing some complaints about the animal skeletons set up in the lab, Sakurako is asked by Isozaki to sort through some bones in the science prep room. While doing so, Sakurako explains how she made her first specimen from her dead cat, her indifference to which doesn’t settle well with Sh?tar?.

Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken – Stardust Crusaders (Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure – Stardust Crusaders)

It’s 1989. Fifty odd years have passed since Joseph Joestar did battle with the immortal Pillar Men and now his
Japanese grandson, Jotaro Kujo, finds his life turned upside down. A strange new ability awakens within his
bloodline, granting him great power but threatening to kill his mother.

… An ancient enemy of the family has returned.

Tonight’s Episode:Death 13, part 1

It is time for Jojo’s group to cross the Arabian desert by plane. But Kakyoin has had a restless night, haunted by a dream he cannot remember.

Screening

Below is the program for November 19th, 2016.
Hopefully this week more people will attend. JAFWA has long been a sanctuary from the stress of exams.

We apologise for not starting the new regular 3 minute series “Flying Witch Petit” last week. Between the shock horrifying event at the end of last week’s episode of “Ore Monogatari” and the fact that we were breaking in JAFWA’s new projector and sound system, we substituted in what may or may not be the one-off “Shelter 00” instead, to make the evening more special. “Flying Witch Petit” should therefore start this week. (unless you want to hold it off until January?)
This week we will have a couple of one-off items to pad the program out so we can start all new regular series in 2017. And two episodes of “GATE”. Whoo Hoo! JAFWA is good.

Flying Witch Petit “+”
Utopa “+”

Below is the program for November 12th, 2016.
We return from our week off, where presumably everybody enjoyed the Japanese Film Festival.

It seems that people enjoy having a little 5 minute or less anime series on the JAFWA program. We thought we were going to wait until January before we started a new regular series after “Onsen Yousei Hakone-chan” finished. But instead this week we will start a new series of 3-minute long episodes.
And we realise that you are missing the retro time-slot. There is not enough time before the end of year to screen a retro series, so we found a one-off item from 1994.
All to soften the blow that two of our regular series conclude tonight.
