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?
