Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 23rd February 2019

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has booked the hall from about 12:30PM to 4:30PM, where it will be 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, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.
All for a gold coin donation (chocolate coins will be confiscated).

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday February 23rd, 2019. After the Event Afternoon.

This week we have our monthly survey to help your JAFWA committee work out what the optimum JAFWA program should be. And we will sneak in one more preview item for consideration before the Dinner Break, so to add it to the survey.

Grimm's Notes

In my opinion, James Cameron’s live action “Battle Angel Alita” movie doesn’t quite live up to the source material, but as Hollywood adaptions of manga/anime go, this is the best one yet.

Last moment notice, at Event cinema Morley anime film Night is Short, Walk on Girl on Thursday 21st, one night only. Check trailer.

Screening on Saturday 16th February 2019

Screening

As explained at last week’s meeting, our regular item “Lupin III” had been polling poorly in the last few monthly surveys, so we held a snap Bean Poll to determine whether we should keep this anime in our regular line up. Of those who voted, it was 11 to keep, 10 to discard. Lupin, once again you have made a death defying escape!

Attendees seemed to enjoy last week’s preview episode so much, that we don’t know what else will properly compare. Finding a single episode of the latest season of anime that can convincingly beat last week’s “The Promised Neverland” is proving difficult, as the committee members were having difficulty on agreeing on any single series, so our compromise solution is to bedazzle you with two different preview episodes this week, as we try to expose you to more than a mere sample of the diversity of anime to be found in Japan.

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday February 2nd, 2019.

Normally JAFWA would not screen on the first week of a month, but we took a week off for Australia Day celebrations, so we are trying to make it up this week.
However, the Doctor Who club Westlodge will be having a club meeting during the afternoon, so we will have to wait until they are finished.
Which means that JAFWA will have to start about 6PM, so we will miss a couple of episodes of anime.

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.
