This it!
After announcing it since JAFWA’s return last month, it is finally upon us!

Please be advised that on the 18th of July 2020 the Japanese Animation Fans of Western Australia will be holding it’s 2020 Annual General Meeting.

The meeting will be held at the Collins Street Centre in South Perth from 3:00pm onwards. The regular screening will commence afterwards, and during the dinner break the committee election will be held.

We request that all current members attend to meet quorum requirements and to have your voices heard! Please arrive about 10 minutes early.

If you have any matters you would like to have raised at the meeting, please email them through to jafwa.anime@gmail.com. Preferably sufficiently in advance so that we can accurately prepare our response.
Currently, this is the list of submitted AGM agenda items.

  • 30th Anniversary preparations.
  • Reschedule the End of Year marathon.

Screening of July 18th 2020

The JAFWA screenings continue, tough we had a last minute change with the program that continues to echo though out this month. We accientally left out “Mob Psycho 100”, meaning we are delaying the start of “Somali and the Forest Spirit” by a few weeks. Sorry.
And tonight, a couple of regular series are ending – “Non Non Biyori”, and “Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld”. Those both these series have another series we could watch. Interested?

Though first, JAFWA’s annual elections are coming up during the Dinner Break. Or at least they should be. Nobody but the current committee seems to have nominated to be elected to the JAFWA committee. Even though our Shogunic President opened the nominating process so that you can nominate any fully signed up (for at least the last 3 months) adult JAFWA member resident in WA for nomination as a committee member – it is up to the nominated to “defend” themselves.
So tremble in dread. Your current committee are back by default.

Non Non Biyori SAO: Alicization - War of Underworld

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of Corona, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
Help would be welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19. Set Up begins ~4:45pm, while the Screening should begin at 5:15pm, or later should the set-up not yet be complete. Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. And we need to wipe the chairs down before they are stacked away.

Below is the expected program for the evening of Saturday July 18th, 2020.

In the UW, the flow of time proceeds a thousand times faster than in the real world, and Kirito’s memories of what happens inside are restricted.
