Screening on Saturday 17th March 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday March 17th, 2018.

We have been having an interesting time watching “Made in Abyss”, but this 1-cour show comes to an end this week. But rejoice, it has been announced that a second season is in production.
We are also going to have two preview items tonight. One of them, “King’s Avatar” (Quan Zhi Gao Shou ????) is actually a Chinese attempt at doing anime, so we at JAFWA thought you might like to compare the cultural and artistic differences between the two countries’ anime.

King's Avatar Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens

Screening on Saturday 10th March 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday March 10th, 2018.

We return to JAFWA after a refreshing week off, though many will have attended Madfest. Let us not forget that there was an encore screening of “Mary and the Witches’ Flower” at Luna Leederville, and some of us checked out the live action version of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable down at Hoyts Carousel.

The Great Passge

This week we will also start a new series before the Dinner Break. In order to demonstrate Japanese Culture as per JAFWA’s constitution, how better than to show the trials and tribulations of compiling a new Japanese dictionary? This rated rather high in the JAFWA surveys.

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

No screening on Saturday 3rd March 2018

No Screening until Saturday March 10th, 2018

This will be our usual first Saturday of the month rest break, so worry not as JAFWA will return the next week.
Most of you will be interested in going to MadFest at the convention Center.
But be aware that there is a few other things happening that may appeal to you. Starting Thursday at Hoyts Carousel is a limited run screening of the live-action adaption of the “Diamond is Unbreakable” arc of “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure”. It could give spoilers for what we are watching at JAFWA, and since the TV version is 39 episodes long, expect some drastic compresion of the storyline.
And there is the 8PM encore screening of Mary and the Witch’s Flower at Luna Leederville. Since MadFest closes its doors at 6PM, what else will you be doing?

The expected program for March 10th should be as follows:

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

5:15pm Sakura Quest Ep 6/12

Screening on Saturday 24th February 2018

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday February 24th, 2018.

As the end of the month screening, we are going to do an audience survey during the Dinner Break to determine what our dear JAFWAites enjoy on our program. To expand the selection on the survey, so we hope you will appreciate the preview episode from the new series of “Card Captor Sakura” before the Dinner Break (and try not to miss “Restaurant to Another World” too much).

Card Captor Sakura Clear Card

This week will also have the first draw in our modified Member’s Prize system. Every time one of our signed up members has attended a JAFWA screening in February has entitled them to one entry in this week’s draw. We have some large prizes pooled up, so large in fact that we are having difficulty uploading the pictures of the prizes. Do you want to be our inaugural winner?

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

Screening

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday February 17th, 2018.

This week we are going to be showing the first episodes of a couple of new shows from Japan, just to expand your knowledge of what other anime is produced in Japan. It would be be nice if JAFWA could screen every anime that is produced in Japan, or even the good half, but it is just not possible. Still we have some, what we hope, are interesting samples for you this week.
Hopefully these preview episodes will dull the pain that tonight is the last episode of “Restaurant to Another World”.

Unfortunately, our plans to run a booth at MadFest on the first week of March have fallen through. Time was not on our side.
However, there is still a chance to get involved with the operation of JAFWA. We are looking for some volunteers to help out at a Bunnings Sausage Sizzle on May 5th, for fundraising purposes. Does anyone wish to help cook sausages in a bun, and even < shock/horror > help serve the general public< / shock/horror >?
Please contact President Drew at the next JAFWA screening if you are interested in helping this endeavour.

Apologies, as we meant to screen this week on Saturday January 20th, however the Hall maintenance people have chosen this week to resurface the floor of the Hall, meaning we won’t have access to it.
Still, the floor should be nice and shiny for us when we return on the 27th.

If you can’t wait an extra week for anime, be aware that the excellent anime movie Mary and the Witch’s Flower Will be a select cinemas from Thursday. I am given to understand that there will be sessions in the original Japanese with English subtitles, and sessions dubbed into English, so check carefully which one you go to.

Screening on Saturday 13th January 2018

Screening

We hope you enjoyed the Christmas / New Year break and festivites, and are now eager to resume watching anime at JAFWA.
While we continue screening several regular series – “Restaurant to Another World”, “Made in Abyss”, “Lupin III”, and our popular retro series “Macross”, we hope to start 6 new regular series in January.

Based on the December survey, the following will becomes regular series to be screened at JAFWA starting in January:

  • Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable chapter
  • Knights & Magic
  • KonoSuba II / Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2
  • Saga of Tanya the Evil / Youjo Senki
  • Sakura Quest
  • The Ancient Magus Bride / Mahou Tsukai no Yome

There is a small possibility that we won’t have “JoJo’ Bizarre Adventure” ready for this week, so we may instead show a long promised example of Chinese anime, in the form of “Quan Zhi Gao Shou” aka ???? ala “The King’s Avatar”. While JAFWA is typically focused on Japanese anime, one can lose perspective without the occasional comparison with an example of another country’s animation.
