Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday August 24th, 2019.

This week is our first preview episode for August, the double-length first episode of “Kanata no Astra” (in Englisg it is known as “Astra: Lost in Space”). To fit this double-length episode, we have had to delay the next episode of “Dororo”, and show “The Promised Neverland” in its timeslot.

Kanata no Astra

With the eagerly-awaited new theatrical movie “Weathering with You” by Makoto Shinkai out in cinemas from Thursday August 22nd, JAFWA might be able to score some free passes for members. For a chance to acquire this, please like and comment upon our FaceBook event before Saturday.

Weathering With You

A quick alert – Madman has their Winter Stocktake sale on this week. Some older titles discounted, often by quite a lot. Order through JAFWA on Saturday to avoid postage costs.

A reminder that JAFWA member Dale is considering doing a bulk import order of Japanese calendars, to reduce shipping costs. The very first 2020 calendars are starting to be listed, as seen here or here. Is anyone interested in ordering Japanese calendars via Dale?

Screening on Saturday 10th August 2019

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday August 10th, 2019.

We welcome you back for August. This week’s program will show an episode of the venerable “Patlabor” anime, to commerate “Patlabor Day”, said to be August 10th.

Patlabor TV

There are so many good episodes of “Patlabor”, it has been difficult to choose which one to show tonight. For a giant mecha show, some of Patlabor’s greatest episodes have not involved the titular mechs.
To recap: Back in the late 1980’s, a group of artists calling themselves Headgear (manga artist Masami Y?ki, director Mamoru Oshii, screenwriter Kazunori It?, mecha designer Yutaka Izubuchi, and character designer Akemi Takada), took a look at the craze for mecha/giant robots, as personified by Gundam and Macross, and asked themselves how would technology like this develop. Their answer – the crowded, narrow streets of Tokyo and other cities would require heavy construction machinery to take a more humanoid profile in order to fit. And once the mecha were common, then you would have the same issues you would have with other vehicles (eg drunk driving, disgruntled employees, terrorists, etc). And hence the police would need some way to deal with miscreant mechas. Hence the concep of Patlabor would be born.
Animated in 1988/89, and set 10 years in their future, we here at JAFWA invite you to see the past as it should have developed.

And finally, this week is the 74th anniversary of the Atomic Bomb detonations upon Hiroshima and Nagasaki. May we never again resort to the nuclear option.

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday July 27th, 2019.

Thank you for all attending the AGM, and sticking around for the non-election during the Dinner Break. We needed more people to nominate.
We are still so saddened by the arson attack on the Kyoto Animation studio last week. This is the sort of thing that causes us to change the JAFWA program at the last moment, so I hope nobody minded us replacing the early evening preview slot with “Baja no Studio”.

Baja no Studio / Kyoto Animation arson Go Fund me

This will also be our end of month screening, which means we will have a monthly survey to see what has been approved by our dear JAFWAites, along with our monthly Member’s Prize draw.

SBS World Movies continues it Ghibli marathon over each weekend in July, though it is dubbed into English.

What is your favourite episode of “Mobile Police Patlabor”? Saturday August 10th has been declared Patlabor Day, so we should commemerate. But we only have room in the JAFWA program for a single episode. Which one shall it be?

Annual General Meeting, followed by Screening on Saturday 20th July 2019

Annual General Meeting before JAFWA Screening

This it!
After mentioning it for the last couple of months, it is finally upon us!

Please be advised that on the 20th of July 2019 the Japanese Animation Fans of Western Australia will be holding it’s 2019 Annual General Meeting.

The meeting will be held at the Collins Street Centre in South Perth from 3:00pm onwards. The regular screening will commence afterwards, and during the dinner break the committee election will be held.

We request that all current members attend to meet quorum requirements and to have your voices heard!

If you have any matters you would like to have raised at the meeting, please email them through to jafwa.anime@gmail.com. Preferably sufficiently in advance so that we can deal with them.
Currently, this is the list of submitted AGM agenda items.

The JAFWA committee has a few constitutional amendments to make that requires the approval and voting by the JAFWA membership.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday July 20th, 2019.

Thank you in advance for all attending the AGM, and sticking around for the election during the Dinner Break.
Not that we think we need to bribe you to attend this week, or any such thing, this will be more of a reward. This week we will have two preview items, one before the Dinner Break, one after the Late Break. Due to a mistake, at the last JAFWA session I suggested that we would have the first episode of “Dr Stone”. However, we now know that it is a double-length episode so we can’t fit it in next week, it will have to be August. Hopefully our replacement preview item will be acceptable.

Helpful Fox Senko-san Cop Craft

SBS World Movies continues it Ghibli marathon over each weekend in July, though it is dubbed into English. However, on the night of Wednesday 17th July, the next channel over SBS Viceland is showing the live action version of “Attack on Titan”.

Welcome back to JAFWA, for our first screening in July. We will ease you back in, with our usual program, with no significant surprises, as Previews and other goodness are later this month.

Remember to leave Supanova 2019 – Perth convention slightly early this Saturday to attend JAFWA.

With the Winter Solstice past, and the length of days now waxing, perhaps we can convince ourselves to take psychological relief that the end of winter may be in sight. Though to strengthen that placebo cure for the Winter Blues, we have a short movie this week at JAFWA, on the importance of saying goodbye properly.
This will also be our end of month screening, which means we will have a monthly survey to see what has been approved by our dear JAFWAites, along with our monthly Member’s Prize draw.

Screening on Saturday 22nd June 2019

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday June 22nd, 2019.

We thank Madman for providing those movie cels last week for door prizes. And we realise how “useful” buying extra Door Prize tickets can be. Did you watch Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? The Movie: Arrow of the Orion at the cinemas?

A few weeks back a silly little 12 minute show was screened before the main screening as part of the sound and vision check. Several of the attendees who arrived early asked about it, so as this week’s preview episode we will screen the two of the 12-minute episodes of “Isekai Quartet”. It just goes to show how many Isekai (aka “another world”) gernre anime is being produced these days, also it is kind of scary that JAFWA has screened all 4 original titles that this show is a chibi/super-deformed parody of, among all the other Isekai shows we have shown (I am personally hanging out for a second season of “Isekai Shokudou” aka “Restaurant from Another World”).
Hope you enjoy what we have done with the program tonight.
