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.

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.
