Screening on Saturday 26th October 2019

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday October 26th, 2019.

We are entering the final part of the year, when we try to complete as many regular series as possible before the end-of-year marathon, so that we have a clean slate to program for next year. Thus you will see instances of two episodes per night, like “Dororo” this week.
And we say farewell to the escaping orphans of Grace House, as the first season of “The Promised Neverland” concludes this week. Never fear, there is plenty of story still ongoing in the manga, so we should hope that a second anime season will be in production.

Promised Neverland

On December 14th we will have our end of year marathon screening, before we take a break until January, and your Suggestions are welcome as the program has not yet been finalised. The JAFWA committee has already scheduled room for “Akira”, and we have received a request for the movie “Millenium Actress”, as well as the “Girls und Panzer” movie, and something “Gundam”. Any other requests/suggestions?
Be aware, we also intend to run an auction on behalf of our members. Tell us what you want us to auction of yours, preferably well in advance, so we can schedule enough time into the program, as well as inform people so that they can bring plenty of money to bid. Already, a couple of expensive “Attack on Titan” figures have been proffered.

A reminder that JAFWA member Dale is offering to do a bulk import order of Japanese calendars, in order to reduce shipping costs. The 2020 calendars have passed their pre-order discount period, and Dale can get titles as seen here or here, possibly with more to come as the publishing companies confirm their schedules. Is anyone else interested in ordering Japanese calendars via Dale?

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles. With assistance from a grant from
