Screening on Saturday 8th August 2020

The JAFWA screenings continue in August. Though we should probably take a a moment to recall that this week marks the 75th anniversary of the two times that nuclear weapons were used in warfare – may it never happen again.
To cheer ourselves up, let us watch a weird and wacky preview from Japan, which makes me wish that the “Steel Ball Run” chapter of “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure” would be animated. And we start our new regular series “Somali and the Forest Guardian”, that was delayed from last month.

Appare-Ranman Somali and the Forest Spirit

As a side note, quite a few people seem to think 2020 is not a very good year. Be aware that we are approaching the new calendar season, and a few Japanese calendars have been pre-listed already, such as here and here. Do you want to be cheered up by 2021?

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of Corona, 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. Set Up begins ~4:45pm, while the Screening should begin at 5:15pm, or later should the set-up not yet be complete. Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. And we need to wipe the chairs down before they are stacked away.

Below is the expected program for the evening of Saturday August 8th, 2020.

Screening on Saturday 25th July 2020

Thankyou for all who attended JAFWA’s Annual General Meeting last week. I hope you are all happy with how your committee performed during the last year.
However, due to lack of nominations, there was insufficient to hold an election and your current committee are back by default. It would please me much if you would now tremble in fear.
To enforce the trembling in Fear, there is the new regular series “Isekai Quartet” season 2.

The JAFWA screenings continue, though we once again had a last minute change with the program. We realised that we needed to put in a preview item last week, so that it could make it onto the survey for this week. Yes! our monthly survey is back, and can our monthly member’s draw be far behind?
And tonight, before the Dinner Break and survey, we will sneak in one more preview episode of a series we supsect that our dear JAFWAites might appreciate. After Dinner we have the last episode of “Mob Psycho 100”.

Arte Isekai Quartet 2

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of Corona, 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. Set Up begins ~4:45pm, while the Screening should begin at 5:15pm, or later should the set-up not yet be complete. Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations.

Annual General Meeting and Screening on Saturday 18th July 2020

Annual General Meeting before JAFWA Screening

This it!
After announcing it since JAFWA’s return last month, it is finally upon us!

Please be advised that on the 18th of July 2020 the Japanese Animation Fans of Western Australia will be holding it’s 2020 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! Please arrive about 10 minutes early.

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 accurately prepare our response.
Currently, this is the list of submitted AGM agenda items.

  • 30th Anniversary preparations.
  • Reschedule the End of Year marathon.

Screening of July 18th 2020

The JAFWA screenings continue, tough we had a last minute change with the program that continues to echo though out this month. We accientally left out “Mob Psycho 100”, meaning we are delaying the start of “Somali and the Forest Spirit” by a few weeks. Sorry.
And tonight, a couple of regular series are ending – “Non Non Biyori”, and “Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld”. Those both these series have another series we could watch. Interested?

Though first, JAFWA’s annual elections are coming up during the Dinner Break. Or at least they should be. Nobody but the current committee seems to have nominated to be elected to the JAFWA committee. Even though our Shogunic President opened the nominating process so that you can nominate any fully signed up (for at least the last 3 months) adult JAFWA member resident in WA for nomination as a committee member – it is up to the nominated to “defend” themselves.
So tremble in dread. Your current committee are back by default.

Non Non Biyori SAO: Alicization - War of Underworld

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of Corona, 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.

Screening on Saturday 11th July 2020

Tis the season of Winter, but never fear. For JAFWA returns this July with anime cheer!
The JAFWA screenings continue, with 4 new regular series starting this week.

Though first, JAFWA’s AGM and annual elections are coming up (next week). Once again we cry forth the offical announcement of the upcoming AGM and election, to be held on July 18th, at 3PM before the JAFWA screening. So please prepare and present questions before-hand for our regularly scheduled July AGM, and consider nominating for the JAFWA elections. And, according to our President, you can nominate any fully signed up (for at least the last 3 months) adult JAFWA member resident in WA for nomination as a committee member – it is up to the nominated to “defend” themselves.
This week shall be the last one we can take nominations. The nominated need time to be informed and to prepare.

As you recall from last session, we have re-instated the retro item slot, which we will also continue this week, to see anime as it used to be (in this case 2005).

As for our new regular series, we will have “Somali and the Forest Spirit” and the second series of “Fruits Basket” near the beginning of the night. While “Vinland Saga” will be shown at the end of the night, as it may prove to be even more violent than “Mahjong Legend Akagi”.
As for the final item, the survey votes suggest it will be either “Darwin’s Game” (which we will show from episode #2, as #1 was shown just a few weeks ago) or “In/Spectre” (aka “Kyokou Suiri”) – the final decision has yet to be made. You may now shiver in anticipation.

Fruits Basket season 2 Somali and the Forest Spirit Darwin's Game In/Spectre Vinland Saga

Screening on Saturday 20th June 2020

The JAFWA screenings continue, after a successfuly resumption last Saturday.
Well, apart from the cooking issues for the free sausage in a bun. We think we have worked out the issues with the applied heat devices, and should have our regretably delayed welcome-back sausage-in-a-bun celebration this week.

As per last week we will be taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of Corona, 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.

Though the JAFWA schedule may have been thrown askew over the last couple of months, we are endeavouring to return to normality (if anyone can actually define what “normal” is). As such, we are going to have a couple of preview items this week, as possible candidates for when some of our regular series come to an end. We hope you understand that these two items are not quite as recent as when we originally decided to preview them.

Darwin's Game

It has been confirmed that JAFWA’s AGM and annual elections are coming up. Once again we cry forth the offical announcement of the upcoming AGM and election, to be held on July 18th.

Screening on Saturday 13st June 2020

WIth latest round of COVID-19 restrictions being lifted, I feel like crying forth

Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu!

Which has various possible translations, but it this context it can be expressed by the sentiment

We’re Back Baby!

Welcome to the fantabulously wonderful month of June, as the JAFWA screenings resume, as you can see on our FB page.
While the Bureau of Meteorology might say Winter has already started, most countries (Japan included) officially state that the Seasons change on the Equinoxes/Solstices. But with JAFWA’s return, it is sunny days in my heart.

Naturally we will be taking precautions to limit the possible second wave, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning, 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 in set up and pack up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19. Set Up begins 4:45pm, while the Screening should begin at 5:15pm, or later should set up not be complete. Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations.

We might think we have had our fill of all things pandemic related, We are still drawn to epidemics of violence, and our movie this week will feature that which has plagued mankind all of our history, be it this world or isekai. Prepare for the war-time action and magic of “The Saga of Tanya the Evil”!

Saga of Tanya the Evil

Be aware that due to violence portrayed, the movie will be last in the program, and it is long enough that we will have to put our Late Break somewhat early.

Technically JAFWA’s annual elections and AGM are coming up. In normal circumstances, this week would be the offical announcement of the upcoming AGM and election. So please act as if we are going to have our regularly scheduled July AGM, and consider nominating for the JAFWA elections.

No Screening on Saturday 6th June 2020

President Drew’s Announcement on the hiatus of JAFWA

please read it here.

No JAFWA this week, but next week?

This would normally be our week off.

Hello fellow JAFWANs,

We have received responses to the last post both via Facebook and email, covering solid ground as to when and how JAFWA reopens. I thank you all who participated and voiced their thoughts and concerns.

I have looked over all the responses, and feel that the best path forward for JAWA is to wait until the restrictions lift further, and more so when the risk to JAFWA attendees is reduced. I would rather restart at a time when all can return.

With his in mind, the committee will wait until the next announcements (June I believe). There will be another post a similar question around that time, and I ask you all to again provide your feedback.

When I announced in March that JAFWA would be on hiatus, I made the decision to pause memberships. When we return, new (and fancy) membership cards will be issued with extensions to existing memberships to cover the time lost.

Regards

Drew Edgar

We have been in communication with the City of South Perth regarding the lifting of restrictions and the return of JAFWA, and the Collins Street Centre is now open for business. We are at the next stage of lifting of pandemic restrictions, so all our members can attend, so long as we follow the appropriate health compliance commitments. We here at JAFWA are eager to do so!

So what are our dear JAFWAites’ opinions on resuming JAFWA on June 13th? Please comment on our FaceBook page as to whether and how we should re-open.

Whichever way you vote, JAFWA shall return with the panacea of anime goodness, for when good order is restored. When the situation allows for JAFWA to resume, our expected screening can be seen here.
As always, be excellent to each other!

And until then, as long as Madman keeps operating, we will keep ordering stuff for you from their online catalogues with our club discount. Just e-mail us your orders, and we will respond with how to direct transfer the deposits and options for delivery. So far we have had a couple of JAFWAites pre-order stuff from the online catalogues.

With all the Travel bans, all is not lost if you need to reach out to Japan. We suggest you (remotely) visit our current favourite local shop (jump-start the economy):

The latest Japanese Spring 2020 season of anime is underway in Japan. Do any of these or these titles look like they are worth previewing at JAFWA when we return? I am hoping for 2nd season of “Fruits Basket”, but also a desire for “Gleipnir”.

The resumption of the expected program for when next we screen is as follows:

presuming the Pandemic progression does not cause them all to cancel, as it did for Swancon.
