Screening on Saturday 19th January 2019

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday January 19th, 2010.

What a wonderful return to JAFWA it was last week. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

This week we start screening the next new regular series. Its start was delayed a week so that we could fit in the retro “Battle Angel” (technically the Japanese name is transliterated as “Gunnm”, from 1993). We are hoping the upcoming release of the James Cameron movie, expected in cinemas in February, will be worthwhile.

Hinamatsuri
