Screening on Saturday 26th May 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday May 26th, 2018.

This week we say good bye to yet another of our regular items, in this case “Knights and Magic”. After this we will have no Isekai (“other world”) themed shows in our regular program, where an ‘ordinary’ earth-human character is somehow translated to a fantasy world.

We are also intending to screen a movie this week – “Lupin III” in the “Italian Game”, which covers the entirety of his campaign in Italy, from how he met Rebecca before the marriage in the first episode in the TV series we recently watched.

Lupi III Italian Game

It is the time of month when we survey our dear JAFWAites, and what they would like to see on the JAFWA program. This time we are doing a special survey to see which new series enter the JAFWA program as regular items in June. We will have 4 timelsots opening up, and we need your assistance to determine what to put in them. As usual, we use an ordinal scale to vote in the survey, mark your favourite candidate show as number 1, your second as number 2, third as number 3, and so on until you run out of shows or favourites. This will also help for July when another timeslot will open up.

It is also the time of month when we do our monthly Member’s Prize draw. Make certain not to miss it!

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

Screening on Saturday 19th May 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday May 19th, 2018.

It appears I made a mistake last week claiming that we had said farewell to Perth’s summer, as it made a surprising resurgence. Technically, Winter officially starts in Australia at the beginning of June, so we can have non-Winter for a few more weeks. Still, this week we say good bye to yet another of our regular items, in this case “Youjo Senki”, which literally translates as “The Military Chronicles of a Little Girl”, but which the author wishes to be known in English as “The Saga of Tanya the Evil”. Translating between languages can indeed be a bit of an art.

This week we will also have two preview items for you to examine. It is no secret that we will have several timeslots open up for new regular series to begin in June. You can accept the possibilities that JAFWA presents (remember that there is way more anime produced in Japan than we can ever show at JAFWA, so trust your JAFWA committee to filter it for you), or present your own suggestions, like last week’s “Persona 5”, and I believe another JAFWA member is very close to suggesting “Piano no Mori”, but hasn’t yet officially put in the request.

Gun Gale Online Megalo Box

It is also that time of year, with the AGM approaching in July, that our dear JAFWAites need to consider how the JAFWA committee has been doing, and more importantly step up and nominate themselves for the elections, so that some us may get some well-deserved rest.

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

Screening on Saturday 12th May 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday May 12th, 2018.

As we enter May, we realise that Perth’s summer is but a fading memory. We are in the season of farewells, “Lupin III” being tonight’s farewell. But not a final farewell, as there are more adventures of the world’s greatest thief on the horizon.
It is also that time of year, with the AGM approaching in July, that our dear JAFWAites need to consider how the JAFWA committee has been doing, and more importantly step up and nominate for the elections so that some us may get some rest. Did you enjoy the Bunnings sausage sizzle we ran last week, on the Revenge of the Fifth?

Omae wa Mada Gunma wo Shiranai Persona 5 Golden Kamuy

This will be our usual first Saturday of the month rest break, so worry not as JAFWA will return the next week.

Screening on Saturday 28th April 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday April 28th, 2018.

TV anime series are so short these days, consisting of but 1-cour. Which should be 13 episodes to cover a single season, but some series have even fewer episodes. Thus tonight will be the last episode of the second series of “Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!” (God’s Blessing on this Beautiful World).

KonoSuba II

Fortunately this week we will be holding our monthly survey to determine what shows you, our wonderful JAFWAite audience, like to see in our lineup. Though it can be difficult to order them properly by ordinal scale of popularity. Every month we have a couple of survey forms that were not properly filled in.

Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 21st April 2018

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, and ethical. Hence selling/auctioning off unwanted relatives will fail to tick all these boxes.
Also we should probably avoid scuffing the floor of the Hall.

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday April 21st, 2018.

The new season of anime has started in Japan, and we have found a couple of sample episodes of 2018 anime series that we suspect you will appreciate. Our first preview episode we thought topical was “to the ends of the Earth”, dues to the fact that around about episode #8 our intrepid heroines travel to the foreign city of Fremantle in order to board their ice-breaker.

Sora Yori mo Toi Basho Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody Fist of the Blue Sky

Due to possible licensing issues, we have had to shelve our plans to screen the first episode of “Violet Evergarden” as a preview episode. Instead, we will re-introduce viewers to the storyline of the manliest of men, albeit it an earlier generation, with pulse-pounding, exploding-head martial arts action.

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

Screening on Saturday 31st March 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday March 31st, 2018.

Due to weird Luni-Solar calculations, this weekend also happens to be the Easter weekend. Though the Orthodox Christians use a slightly different weird Luni-Solar calculation, so they say April 8 this year.
At any rate, this weekend is the traditional time of remembrance that rabbits are an introduced agricultural pest in Australia, and it is your patriotic duty to dispose of them all. Even the chocolate ones.
Also, Swancon 2018 is on this weekend, but we expect that most you will avoid their Saturday evening and come to JAFWA instead.

Alice to Zouroku

Due to the fact that the first episode of our new, regular series “Alice and Zouroku” will have a double-length first episode, we don’t have room this week for the next episode of “Ancient Magus Bride”. You will just have to enjoy “Lupin III” on its own.

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.
