Below is the program for December 5th, 2015.
Special bonus session.
Thanks to the power blackout a couple of months ago, JAFWA’s schedule was upset and we need to make up some time if we want to cleanly finish this year.
This week we finish the series “Akami ga Kill”. Who do you think will survive?
We also have one of the 2015 Young Animator’s Award winners that we have been trying to fit in the program for a while, as well as a couple of regular items and a retro item that won’t fit in the marathon screening next week.
Because this is the first Saturday of the month, the Doctor Who club WestLodge has booked the Hall before us, and they run till 5:30PM or so. Thus JAFWA will not start until 6PM at the earliest, though people can enter about 5:45PM.
All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.
