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.

The expected program for December 8th is expected to be something like as follows:
