Screening on Saturday 16th February 2019

Screening

As explained at last week’s meeting, our regular item “Lupin III” had been polling poorly in the last few monthly surveys, so we held a snap Bean Poll to determine whether we should keep this anime in our regular line up. Of those who voted, it was 11 to keep, 10 to discard. Lupin, once again you have made a death defying escape!

Attendees seemed to enjoy last week’s preview episode so much, that we don’t know what else will properly compare. Finding a single episode of the latest season of anime that can convincingly beat last week’s “The Promised Neverland” is proving difficult, as the committee members were having difficulty on agreeing on any single series, so our compromise solution is to bedazzle you with two different preview episodes this week, as we try to expose you to more than a mere sample of the diversity of anime to be found in Japan.
