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.

Synopsis

Yoshino Koharu is a young girl trying to look for a job in Tokyo, but is only met with a series of rejections. However, she has a seemingly lucky break when she receives a job offer to work with the tourism board of the economically struggling Manoyama village as their “Queen”. With no other choice, Yoshino accepts the offer and travels to Manoyama only to find out that she was hired based on a case of mistaken identity and that her contract term is for one year instead of the one day, as she had initially thought. With nowhere else to go, Yoshino reluctantly becomes Queen of Manoyama.

This evening’s Episode:The Lady’s Scales

Taking charge of the Tourism Board’s event, Shiori decides to turn it into a contest where participants compete by making the best Soumen dish, with the winning recipe becoming Manoyama’s signature dish. Yoshino meets Dokushima and commissions him to develop a special Soumen making aecade-machine while Shiori and the others talk with Kumano again, who mentions that he had originally gone to France to train as a cook to impress Sayuri. Can Shiori’s Happy Soumen recipe win the contest?
