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:

JAFWA still in hiatus for the rest of May 2020

President Drew’s Announcement on the hiatus of JAFWA

please read it here.

The President’s poll on the re-opening of JAFWA

We have been in communication with the City of South Perth regarding the lifting of restrictions and the return of JAFWA.

The Collins Street Centre is now open for business.

There is still a maximum occupancy, under the Emergency Health Act, of 20 in the main hall and 12 in the upstairs room. This leaves JAFWA with three options:

  1. Open for June (13th), capping attendance in the main hall to 20 – this affects us mostly before the dinner break
  2. Waiting until the next stage of restrictions lift to recommence JAFWA with full capacity available (likely to occur around the same time as restarting in June)
  3. Waiting until the spread is further contained to minimise risk to JAFWA attendees.

I am well aware that if we do reopen early, we will have a reduced attendance due with those at risk maintaining their distance. We won’t know the full extent of how this will impact us until we open.

There are also health compliance commitments to maintain – we will need to clean down the areas we use (kitchen tops, etc) as well as the equipment we use (tables and chairs both before and after the session, and JAFWA equipment).

Which of these options do our JAFWAites prefer?

No Screening on this week or for the rest of this month.

JAFWA is still on Hiatus until the current pestilence passes. Though as the above poll indicates, JAFWA may resume as soon as June.
Whechever 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!

JAFWA still in hiatus at beginning May 2020

President Drew’s Announcement on the hiatus of JAFWA

please read it here.

President Drew’s question of the Week

Hello fellow JAFWANs

Firstly, I hope that all of you are doing okay in these trying times. As of yet we have no idea as to when normalcy will return to our lives. Please do all you can to keep positive, and we look forward to seeing you at JAFWA when we recomence in the future.

Now for a discussion topic: the first JAFWA Anonymous Anime Opening Poll (JAAOP).

This may very well be hard for some of us to choose, but stay with me on this.

  1. Please post or link (link preferably) up to three of your favourite opening themes, clips if possible.
  2. Either
    (a) Send an email with the links (and your identity so I know who it is) to jafwa.anime@gmail.com or
    (b) post under this Facebook entry the links to your openings.

Let’s see what JAFWANs liked at the start of the show!

To start things, here’s my three.

First up – the Top Gun of MS Gundam, Kido Senshi Gundam 0083
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoplnxPv-J0 The Winner

Next the first opening to Hokuto no Ken – You Wa Shock!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ks3WAHefLDk

Last but not least the First opening to Shin (Change!!) Getta Robo: The Last Days of Earth
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoNmzoP3CF8

Drew.

No Screening on this week or for the forseeable future.

JAFWA is still on Hiatus until the current pestilence passes.
Never fear, JAFWA shall return with the panacea of anime goodness, when good order is restored. When the situation allows for JAFWA to resume, our expected screening can be seen here.

Latest news from the Japanese Film Festival can be found here. Includes a link to a free documentary “10 Years with Hayao Miyazaki“.
COVID-19 has had a negative impact on anime in Japan, as seen here.

And so long as Madman keeps operating, we will keep ordering stuff for you from their online catalogue 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.

Artists are bringing back Amabie, a ‘youkai’ associated with protection from disease.

In the weeks to come we will be implementing various challenges and FaceBook polls, so keep tuned. Do you have any suggestions what to Poll?

Does anyone have a haiku to express the current situation? If so, please share it on FaceBook with us, or email it to JAFWA Members here.

Haiku is a short form of Japanese poetry in three phrases, typically characterised by three qualities:

  • The essence of haiku is “cutting” (kiru). This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a kireji (“cutting word”) between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colours the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.
  • Traditional haiku often consist of 17 on (also known as morae though often loosely translated as “syllables”), in three phrases of 5, 7, and 5 on, respectively.
  • A kigo (seasonal reference), usually drawn from a saijiki, an extensive but defined list of such terms.

eg a bad example (stolen from the FB Perth Nerd Herd page):
Take me down to Hai-
ku city where the grass is
green, and the dammit.

President Drew’s Announcement on the hiatus of JAFWA

My fellow JAFWANs,

On 22 March a Federal announcement was made on public gatherings. Given how JAFWA uses the hall and our size, we met the requirements to continue operation.

However, the City of South Perth has decided to err on the side of caution, and at 12:20 on 23 March 2020 I was notified that the City of South Perth has therefore cancelled all bookings effective immediately.

As JAFWA has a long-term booking, these will be immediately rebooked once the hall is re-opened.

It is very unfortunate, but also a practical way to protect all at our club and our society. JAFWA is a grand part of society, and so JAFWA must do its part to minimise infection spread.

Therefore, effective immediately, all JAFWA memberships are extended for the duration of the Social Gathering freeze (a pause on your membership until JAFWA reopens). As a sign of good faith from the City of South Perth, JAFWA has been granted permission to retain the keys to the premises. They expect that JAFWA will return, as does your JAFWA committee.

JAFWA will return once the Social Gathering freeze is over, and as current president I hope and expect to see all your wonderful faces present when we do recommence our club activities. The first screening back, whenever that may be, will be that same programme as per 27 March 2020. Members recorded on the current March 2020 attendance sheet will be used for a Membership prize draw that night.

JJAFWA belongs to you. Please keep healthy over the upcoming period, and stoke the fires of enthusiasm for your club. We will be communicating via Facebook and a members-based email group on upcoming shows that we hope to screen, anime news and some small competitions. Discussions and questions are welcome!

Finally, my personal email is attached. Please contact me/the committee if you need or want to talk – the JAFWA committee does indeed care about our members and their health, as the club wouldn’t be what it is without your support. We can be contacted via:
jafwa.anime@gmail.com (our main general contact);
JAFWA via Facebook;
drewedgar1981@gmail.com – me directly (and please no signing me up for spam). If for any reason you may be affected by Corvid-19, my inbox is always open.

Many thanks for your support for JAFWA, I look forward to seeing you ASAP!

This would have been our usual once a month break, to recharge our batteries, and let you dear JAFWAites enjoy/suffer through the messy organic thing called ‘Life’ (extra messy in the time of pandemic). So long as you maintain proper Social Distancing and other necessary measures (sorry to plague you with the conditional modifiers, responsible as you all are).

Screening to be, date to be advised

The meeting of March 21 was quite the success, with everybody maintaining their 1.5 metre spread, except the couple of groups who huddled together, similar to how they arrived. Sanitiser flowed freely, and we definately resisted the ‘Rona. Long may we reign healthy!
Still, the updated regulations now say that JAFWA is On Hold. The following is what will happen when JAFWA returns!

Now that the third season of “Psycho Pass” has finished on its cliff-hanger, we shall next celebrate with a full length anime film to fill the gap before we begin some new series regularly. We technically don’t have anything pandemic related, though our movie 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.

There was a possibility that JAFWA and anime club POWA (screening Sundays in Joondalup) might join forces to host an Anime Quiz Night, perhaps on July 4th. Anybody interested?

JAFWA was going to do a Bunnings Sausage Sizzle on May 2nd, down at Cannington. Bunnings has now indicated that it will be cancelled. We appreciate those volunteers who had volunteered to help out.

However, we shall also say farewell to the complex plot of “Psycho Pass”, with the final episode of season 3.

Welcome to the wonderful month of March, as the JAFWA screenings resume.
While the Bureau of Meteorology might say Autumn has already started, most countries (Japan included) officially state that the Seasons change on the Equinoxes/Solstices. With human induced climate change becoming ever more obvious, perhaps the Bureau of Meteorology should consider updating their dating scheme.

Hope you all enjoyed the Perth Japan Festival last Saturday!
