Screening on Saturday 26th May 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday May 26th, 2018.

This week we say good bye to yet another of our regular items, in this case “Knights and Magic”. After this we will have no Isekai (“other world”) themed shows in our regular program, where an ‘ordinary’ earth-human character is somehow translated to a fantasy world.

We are also intending to screen a movie this week – “Lupin III” in the “Italian Game”, which covers the entirety of his campaign in Italy, from how he met Rebecca before the marriage in the first episode in the TV series we recently watched.

Lupi III Italian Game

It is the time of month when we survey our dear JAFWAites, and what they would like to see on the JAFWA program. This time we are doing a special survey to see which new series enter the JAFWA program as regular items in June. We will have 4 timelsots opening up, and we need your assistance to determine what to put in them. As usual, we use an ordinal scale to vote in the survey, mark your favourite candidate show as number 1, your second as number 2, third as number 3, and so on until you run out of shows or favourites. This will also help for July when another timeslot will open up.

It is also the time of month when we do our monthly Member’s Prize draw. Make certain not to miss it!

Sakura Quest

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 Queen’s Return

Summer Vacation now over, Yoshino, Maki, and Sanae return to Manoyama, where they encounter the Spanish tourists at the palace. Shiori and Ririko explain that they are part of a group called “Cryptid Twelve”, who came to Manoyama to find the mythical Chupakabura. Coincidentally, the city is about to perform the “drying”, which is a procedure that hasn’t been done in 70 years where the Sakura Pond is completely drained in order to control the black bass population.

Knight’s and Magic

A world where medieval knights use giant robots called Silhouette Knights to fight against demon beasts, magical ravenous animals that devour everything on sight. Tsubasa Kurata is a mecha otaku from Japan who gets killed in a car accident. Tsubasa is reincarnated in this new parallel world as Ernesti “Eru” Echevallia, a boy born into a noble family. Tsubasa’s previous otaku memories inspire Ernesti into creating his own Silhouette Knight in order to defend his kingdom.

The battle for Delvancul continues. After drawing the Vyver mech away from the battlefield, Eru’s party launches an attack with improved Javelin missiles, but in response, Doloteo activates the Vyver’s Dragon Blood reactor that surrounds the flying ship with a massive energy shield. Meanwhile on land, an infiltration party attempts to hijack the drawbridge controls, to allow the Kuschperchan forces to invade.
