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

There will be no JAFWA screening on November 4th – it being the first Saturday of the month, JAFWA’s usual weekend off.
However, since the Japan Film Festival is happening down at Hoyts Carousel in Cannington, it is not a cultural drought. Both the anime movies will be on the weekend. See Japanese Film Festival for details.
There is even special offers for ticket holders – eg Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tarts.

Screening on Saturday 28th October 2017

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday October 28th, 2017.

It has long been considered that a relaxing evening at JAFWA is a good way to relieve the stress of exams.
This week we will be having our monthly survey of how our dear JAFWAites rate the various anime we have screened at JAFWA. As such, this week’s preview item will occur before the Dinner Break.
But with the ending of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders arc last week, we will put in something new that doesn’t need to be surveyed, so maybe this is a good time to show the KonoSuba OAV.

Land of the Lustrous

The JAFWA End of Year marathon screening for 2017 is closing in upon us. Soon we hope to have a first draft of the program for Saturday 16th December, though there is a still a chance to put in a suggestion for what you want to see on the program. I am kind of hoping we can put in an episode of “Trigun”.
Special News – we are negotiating with Madman Entertainment to screen the “Your Name”/”Kimi no Na wa” movie.
