Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday January 19th, 2010.

What a wonderful return to JAFWA it was last week. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

This week we start screening the next new regular series. Its start was delayed a week so that we could fit in the retro “Battle Angel” (technically the Japanese name is transliterated as “Gunnm”, from 1993). We are hoping the upcoming release of the James Cameron movie, expected in cinemas in February, will be worthwhile.

Hinamatsuri

Be aware that JAFWA will not have a session on the Australia Day Weekend. We will make up for it with a short session from 6PM on Saturday 2 Feb, after the Westlodge club meeting.

O-kaeri nasai!

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday January 12th, 2010.

We return from our annual End-of-Year break, where we all hopefully recharged our batteries during the assorted Solstice and New Year Celebrations.

While we have a couple of regular series carrying on over from last year, mostly we are starting brand new regular series on Saturday, based off of the survey results from our dear JAFWAites. Including the next chapter of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure saga, though technically this arc’s protagonist is GioGio.
Apart from the retro “Battle Angel” from 1993, which we are screening in commemeration on the upcoming release of the James Cameron movie, expected in cinemas in February.

No screening on Saturday 5th January 2019 – enjoy the New Year

No Screening until Saturday January 12th, 2019

“Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu!” is the traditional Japanese greeting offered at the New Year.
So as 2019 dawns we offer to you, our dear JAFWAites, salutations and warm greetings to welcome in the New Year. Remeber that it is merely only another week of anime drought before JAFWA prepares to return.
Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu!

We continue our annual End-of-Year rest break, where as mentioned we attended various Solstice related festivities and prepare to welcome in the New Year. Worry not as JAFWA will return in 2019 (we have booked the Hall and everything).
Until then, enjoy the festivities, and try not to suffer too much from anime withdrawal. Be aware that SBS Vicelend intends to screen “Howl’s Moving Castle” on Monday 31st Dec, and “Laputa Castle in the Sky” on Thursday January 3rd, both at midday.
What are your suggestions for your favourite seasonal anime?

We have finally organised the JAFWA program for January, based on the last survey results. I hope you will be favourably impressed with the program shown below. Be aware that dues to including the retro show “Battle Angel”, we will be delaying the start of one more regular item. Are you psychic enough to guess what it us?

No screening on Saturday 29th December 2018 – enjoy Christmas and prepare for the New Year

No Screening until Saturday January 12th, 2019

Merry Christmas one and all!
And in case this doesn’t align with your particular creed, please translate my salutations and well-wishing into the appropriate festive/seasonal equivalent. And don’t forget the Japanese often eat that traditional Christmas meal of KFC chicken.

We continue our annual End-of-Year rest break, where as mentioned we attend various Solstice related festivities and prepare to welcome in the New Year. Worry not as JAFWA will return in 2019 (we have booked the Hall and everything).
Until then, enjoy the festivities, and try not to suffer too much from anime withdrawal. In this season of jolliness, we are pleasantly surprised to discover that on Christmas Day SBS Vicelend intends to screen “Spirited Away” on Tuesday 25th Dec at 12:00pm.
One of my favourite Christmas anime is “Tokyo Godfathers”. What is your favourite Christmas anime?

We are still organising the program for January, based on the last survey results, but I will give a single hint at this stage – I can say that a historic hunt for stolen gold wil join our titanic lineup. And don’t forget that we will be continuing the regular series “Lupin III”, “Overlord”, and “Sword Art Online: Alicization”.
We thank the audience on Dec 15 who voted strongly for us to include the old 2-part OAV “Battle Angel Alita” anime into the program for January.

No screening on Saturday 22nd December 2018 – Prepare for Christmas

No Screening until Saturday January 12th, 2019

This is of annual End-of-Year rest break, where we attand various Solstice related festivities (X-mas is particularly popular) and welcome in the New Year. Worry not as JAFWA will return in 2019 (we have booked the Hall and everything).
Until then, enjoy the festivities, and try not to suffer too much from anime withdrawal. Be aware that TV may help – “My Neighbour Totoro” Tuesday 18th Dec SBS VICELAND 12:00pm to 1:35pm, and “Summer Wars” Thursday 20th Dec SBS VICELAND 12:00pm to 2:05pm.

We are still organising the program for January, based on the last survey results, but I will give a single hint at this stage – it is safe to say that one isekai program has made it into our colourful lineup. We will be continuing the regular series “Lupin III”, “Overlord”, and “Sword Art Online: Alicization”.
And the audience on Dec 15 vote strongly for us to include the old 2-part “Battle Angel Alita” anime into the program in January.

Below is the program for the afternoon and evening of Saturday December 15th, 2018.

It is our end of year marathon, from 1:30PM till close to 11 PM, before we go on break until January 12th to recharge our batteries. And enjoy the assorted Solstice Celebrations and ring in the New Year.

We have wittled down all the various suggestions received for this night, and hopefully created a program that will leave you sufficiently sated until JAFWA returns in January. We will be doing a pizza run, possibly having a quiz, giving away prizes and watching some good anime. Though unfortunately there was not enough demand for a platter of sushi.

Screening on Saturday 8th December 2018

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday December 8th, 2018.

This will be the final, regular screening of JAFWA for 2018. After this week there will only be next week’s marathon special screening, then the mundane/non-JAFWA end-of-year festival season, until JAFWA’s return in 2019.

Our plan to finish as many regular series as possible by the end of year is well under way. This evening will be the final episode of “Death March to a Parallel World Rhapsody”, as well as the two final, pulse-pounding, dora-dora-dora episodes of the ‘Diamond is Unbreakable’ chapter to the saga that is “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure”.
We don’t have enough room in the program this week for the final episode of either “Card Captor Sakura – Clear Card” or “Cells at Work!”. We will show those final episodes next week during the marathon screening.

This week we have the final of our Dinner Break surveys. Not to determine what you like in the program, but to find out what you want to see next year. Culled from the many previous surveys, plus some series you don’t need to see a preview to know that you want to see it.

No screening on Saturday 1st December 2018

No Screening until Saturday December 8th, 2018

This will be our usual first Saturday of the month rest break, so worry not as JAFWA will return the next week. However, we shall only have 1 regular screening in December. Followed by the extra long end-of-year marathon the week after.
Then we have a break for assorted pagan festivals (apparently Xmas is popular) before returning in 2019 with a lot of new series.

So come along on December 8th and witness a couple of our regular series reach their end. Say farewell to “Death March to a Parallel World Rhapsody”, and strap yourself in for the thrilling conclusion to the ‘Diamond is Unbreakable’ chapter of “Jojo’s Bizarree Adventure”.

Screening on Saturday 24th November 2018

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday November 24th, 2018.

But first, some bad news. Due to scheduling mistakes, we no longer have the Event Afternoon on November 24th. Sorry. There will still be the normal JAFWA session after 5PM.

Since we are hoping to finish as many series as possible by the end of year, so that we don’t have too many cliffhangers lasting a month or more before we return in 2019, this week we will have two episodes of “Card Captor Sakura”. And to make things special, two episodes of “Overlord” season 2.
And yet we still have room for another preview episode – this one being a write-in on one of the recent surveys. Thus we have already had one person trying to vote it in to the JAFWA program.

Beatless

And it is that time of month again. Before we hold the monthly Member’s Prize Draw, we will do our Dinner Break survey where we find out our dear JAFWAites attitudes on what JAFWA is currently screening and the various preview episodes that we screen. It is a simplistic system based on an ordinal scale, where you vote “1” for your favourite title, “2” for second favourite, and so on, for as many titles as you feel qualified to rate.

The question has been raised again, is “Cells at Work!” too bloody to show early in the night, when we have our family friendly shows. Please add your opinions to our FaceBook page.

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

And yet we still have room for another preview episode – once again demonstrating the current fad for the isekai (other world) genre, where a human being from modern day Earth is sucked into a fantasy world and somehow becomes the most powerful. And yjough this does not appear to leave musch room for variation, somehow the Japanese authors manage to make novel and intriguing variations on this theme. Come and see for yourself.
