Screening

Below is the program for extra-long, 25th Anniversary celebration on December 12th, 2015.

Yes, we said extra-long, 25th Anniversary celebration.

This news makes us feel old. We look back on the history of JAFWA and we find so many great anime was shown during the years. So we are going to make this a Retro screening night, where we screen samples of the best and most influential anime from JAFWA’s screening history, and then trim that down into something that won’t overfill Saturday.

Of course, if our more recent JAFWAite members find some of this old-school anime appealing, let us know and we may be able to arrange to screen the entire anime series in 2016. We next return on January 9th.

The unique thing about this video store was that the videos in the store contained “video girls”, girls which literally come to life and out of the user’s television when the video tape is played to cheer the renter up.

Synopsis

Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic (Kiniro Mosaic, Season 2)

It’s Alice’s second year in Japan. Her second year living with Shino, going to school with Shino and being with Shino and all her other friends in Japan. It’s time for another year of fun.

Tonight’s Episodes:Because I Love You More Than Anything” (finale)

The worst week of summer vacation for Shino has begun. Karen and Alice are now back in England and she’s already going through blonde hair withdrawal (and having some very weird dreams). Youko and Aya are there to keep her company, but its Alice and Karen that she is missing. For Alice the trip was a chance to see her parents and her dog Poppy again, but she misses Shino just as much as Shino misses her.

Kamisama Hajimemashita, 2nd Season

Momozono Nanami continues to serve as the Earth Deity of the Mikage Shrine, and the fox spirit Tomoe continues to serve as her familiar. Their feelings for each other are becoming harder to ignore, but Nanami’s duties as an Earth Deity won’t wait. And an old friend of Tomoe’s is starting to stir up trouble.

Tonight’s Episodes:The Diety Goes Back to Being a Child

Jiro gained a better understanding of compassion and caring for others, having fallen for Nanami and risking his life to protect her from the lightning beast of Mt Kurama, which Yatori had fed the Sojobo’s soul to. However he was observant enough, and wise enough, to realize Nanami’s heart belonged to another and let it go. But although the devious yokai was flung from Mt Kurama by Nanami’s barrier, Yatori wasn’t destroyed by it. He continues to work with Akura-oh/Kirihito to recover the more powerful youkai’s body from the Netherworld.

Fairy Tail 2014

Magic and mayhem in the nation of Fiore. The members of the infamous mage’s guild Fairy Tail spend their days sorting out problems for the residents of Magnolia and battling the odd apocalyptic demon or dark guild. Of course they don’t let little things like that get in the way of having fun.

Tonight’s Episodes:The Hungry Wolf Knights

Gray and Rufus have their big battle, with Rufus’s copy-cat Memory Make magic giving him a distinct advantage. Eventually however, Gray gets the better of him by mixing his ice making techniques faster than Rufus can follow and simply powering through his counter attacks. And all the while Lucy, Natsu and the others continue to traverse the labyrinth beneath the castle. An attempt to lure in guards by putting Lucy and Mirajane on display turns out to have been a wasted effort … or was it? Perhaps there was someone watching them after all.

Shirobako (White Box)

Aoi Miyamori and her four friends made up the Animation club at their high school, and all five of them aimed to go into the Anime industry after graduation. Now Aoi, like her friends, has made her dream come true. She works for Musashino Animation, a little studio in Tokyo. The job comes with all sorts of challenges and stresses but Aoi wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t something she wanted to do.

Tonight’s Episodes:What Do You Think I Was Trying to Say?

Although Shigeru’s advice didn’t seem to help Ema much with her cat animations, his involvement brings in Yumi, who is able to help her over the slump. It relieves some of the stress on Aoi, and allows her to spend time with her sister while she is in Tokyo. The crisis has been averted, the key frames are done, and everything is back on track… if only the problem of director Seiichi and the unfinished storyboards for the final episode could be solved as easily.

Noragami OAV (Stray God OAV)

Hiyori Iki is introduced to the world of spirits and deities after her first encounter with Yato, a homeless war god, results in a near death experience. Now Hiyori needs the ambitious Yato to help stop her soul from disconnecting from her body, but a god who doesn’t even have a shrine, let alone worshippers, doesn’t really inspire much confidence.

Tonight’s Episodes:The Promise of that Spring Day

It is autumn, and that means it is time for that signature Japanese pastime; Cherry Blossom Viewing. This will be the first time Hiyori has gone to watch the cherry blossoms without her family, but that doesn’t mean it should be a low-key affair. She has invited all her new friends from the spirit world to join her; Yato and Yukine obviously, but also the energetic poverty god Kofuku and her regalia Daikoku. And then the venerable god of academics Tenjin and his retinue. But there’s also one other group…

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (Assassination Classroom)

The students of Class 3E are the lost causes of Kunugigaoka Junior High. But they have been given one last chance to redeem themselves. Their new teacher is not human, he’s a monster that blew a hole through the moon and now threatens to do the same to Earth in twelve months’ time. If the students can manage to kill him before then, they get 10 billion yen and the gratitude of the worlds’ governments. So, it’s time to assassinate the teacher! Which is kind of a shame, because he’s a really good teacher.

Tonight’s Episodes:Karma Time – 2nd Period” and “XX Time

Class E has successfully infiltrated the hotel and Smog, the first of the mystery attacker’s henchmen, is down. However Smog managed to paralyse Karasuma-sensei in his initial strike, and now they are facing the second henchman; Grip, a man able to crush people’s skulls with his bare hands. Karma, however, doesn’t think much of this henchman, especially since his first move is to try and call for reinforcements. So now it’s a fight between the two of them, Karasuma doesn’t like it but Koro-sensei points to Karma’s face; he’s taking this fight seriously.

Akame ga Kill (Red-Eye Kill)

Tatsumi was hoping to find enough money in the capital to save his poverty stricken village, what he found instead was corruption and slaughter. The prime minister is the power behind the throne, manipulating the infant emperor for his own gain, and the common folk of the empire suffer under his reign. A group of assassins known as Night Raid prowl the city, leaving a trail of corpses in their wake. But as Tatsumi quickly discovers, they may be the only hope the empire has.

Tonight’s Episode:Kill the Little Sister

Although Mine initially planned on sneaking out alone, the rescue of Tatsumi instead involves all the still-living members of Night Raid. With Budo guarding the arena where the execution was set to occur and Esdeath herself carrying out the execution of her beloved, the task of rescuing Tatsumi is far from easy. Mine kills Budo at the cost of her weapon and eventually herself, and Susanoo sacrifices himself to hold off Esdeath so the others can escape. With Mine dying in Tatsumi’s arms after making her confession, Night Raid is now down to just four members.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Shirou Emiya, a high school student and amateur magus living in Fuyuki City, finds himself a participant in the Fifth Holy Grail War. A secret tournament between mages and their servants, reincarnated heroes and legendary figures, to claim the Holy Grail; a chalice that can grant any wish.

Tonight’s Episode:The Dark Sword Bears its Fangs

Rin and Shirou avoid a confrontation with Shinji’s overpowered Servant Gilgamesh by threatening the master instead. After burying Illyasviel, Rin again confronts Shirou about his self-sacrificing attitude to helping others. Despite Gilgamesh’s display of raw power the two decide Caster should still be their first priority and they are aided in their plans to deal with her by an offer of alliance from Lancer. This proves fortuitous when Archer tries to block their path into the church.

Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken (JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure)

The Joestar’s are a wealthy English family, but one with a dark fate. Ever since the days of Jonathon Joestar and his adopted brother Dio Brando, and the succession struggle that came about from Dio’s greed, the Joestar family line has found itself embroiled in supernatural horror and world-threatening ambition. And it always falls to the current Jojo, whoever it may be, to stop the madness.

Tonight’s Episode:Jojo vs the Ultimate Lifeform

The Nazi’s have gone ahead and awakened the “Pillar Man”, who General Stroheim has decided to name Santana, and it is just as catastrophic a mistake as Speedwagon warned them it would be. Easily as durable as the vampires created by his masks, this being absorbs entire bodies rather than just blood. And he seems to draw knowledge from those he consumes as well, learning the language of his captors in a matter of minutes. Jojo may have arrived, but can even he stop this thing?

The problem is, Jiro is going down there as well … and he still looks angry.

Screening

Below is the program for October 31st, 2015.

Movie Night! – come in anime cosplay for free entry. Since American cultural imperialism is forcing a very distorted version of a Celtic-derived festival upon us, we thought we would watch the “Heisei Tanuki Wars – Pon Poko” for a proper paranormal parade.

Though as we learnt last week week with the finale of “Amagi Brilliant Park”, we have to ration the awesomeness of anime or risk blowing the circuit breakers. Fortunately the Hall had two power supplies, though I was a bit worried that “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” might trip the second circuit breaker.

But the nefarious Yatori is still somewhere within, still whispering in Jiro’s ear and working towards his own goal.

He could have avoided any kind of dispute between Endou and Yuichirou of the studio’s CG department, but instead created a major feud that resulted in Endou quitting. Endou has reconsidered his rash decision (no thanks to Takanashi) and even taken a look at the CG version of Episode 8’s ending. But Takanashi’s talent for mayhem knows no bounds. The explosions at the end of Episode 8 have to match Episode 9’s beginning, and Aoi has just received a call from one of the animators for Episode 9 …

Log Horizon 2

Life continues for Shiroe and the others trapped within the world of Elder Tale. The city of Akihabara is now prosperous and thriving thanks to the efforts and innovations of the adventurers.

Tonight’s Episodes:The Pioneers” Finale

The Eternal Moths have now progressed to putting even adventurers to sleep. And to complicate matters they have turned the former adventurer city of Shibuya, and its precious communications tower, into a raid zone. When Shiroe leads a raid party to the new “Calling Fortress” his uncertainty about whether to save the tower or help the People of the Land gets them almost completely wiped out. But once his friends strengthen his resolve to do the right thing, Shiroe decides on a new course of action … save them both.

Amagi Brilliant Park

Amagi Brilliant Park is an amusement park, a place of magical wonder and whimsy. Or at least it’s supposed to be. The park has fallen on hard times and that’s bad news for the staff. Who genuinely are magical. There’s no place for these oddballs from a fantasy world except an amusement park, so they need theirs to stay open. That’s where Kanie Seiya comes in, a pompous high school student and burned out child star is the perfect person to manage this particular mad-house.

Tonight’s Episodes:Not a Good PV!” Finale

The park has been saved. Takaya from Amagi Development, who was actually the vengeful wizard in disguise, has been seen off. Even Princess Latifa’s curse has been averted by the amassed Animus created by all the visitors to the park. And Kanie has decided to stay on as park manager, after his sister pointed out he had never been happier than when he was working at Amagi. Of course, meeting one year’s quota doesn’t mean they are guaranteed to meet the next years. So first things first, put out a decent promotional video for the park.

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (Assassination Classroom)

The students of Class 3E are the lost causes of Kunugigaoka Junior High. But they have been given one last chance to redeem themselves. Their new teacher is not human, he’s a monster that blew a hole through the moon and now threatens to do the same to Earth in twelve months’ time. If the students can manage to kill him before then, they get 10 billion yen and the gratitude of the worlds’ governments. So, it’s time to assassinate the teacher! Which is kind of a shame, because he’s a really good teacher.

Tonight’s Episodes:Finals Time” and “School’s Out Time – 1st Period”

Itona and Shiro made their second attempt on Koro-sensei, tricking Terasaka into endangering the entire E Class in order to drive Koro-sensei into a corner, but Terasaka makes up for this by being the punching bag in Karma’s counter-strategy. With that out of the way it’s time to prepare for the end of year exams, and Koro-sensei is offering a huge reward as incentive; every student that comes top in the school for a subject gets to shoot off one of his tentacles, reducing his overall speed and thus making him easier to kill.

Akame ga Kill (Red-Eye Kill)

Tatsumi was hoping to find enough money in the capital to save his poverty stricken village, what he found instead was corruption and slaughter. The prime minister is the power behind the throne, manipulating the infant emperor for his own gain, and the common folk of the empire suffer under his reign. A group of assassins known as Night Raid prowl the city, leaving a trail of corpses in their wake. But as Tatsumi quickly discovers, they may be the only hope the empire has.

Tonight’s Episode:Kill the Fated

The Path of Peace, it seems, is important to both the Revolutionary Army and the Prime Minister.

With the Yeager’s having arrived (despite Kurome not being fully recovered) the Raksha Demons go on the offensive. However, for all their boasting they really aren’t up to the task of facing skilled Imperial Arms users … three of the four Raksha’s are dead without Night Raid losing any more members.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Shirou Emiya, a high school student and amateur magus living in Fuyuki City, finds himself a participant in the Fifth Holy Grail War. A secret tournament between mages and their servants, reincarnated heroes and legendary figures, to claim the Holy Grail; a chalice that can grant any wish.

Tonight’s Episode:A Legendary Showdown

Despite both having lost their servants, Rin and Shirou both agree to continue fighting in the Holy Grail War. They decide that their best option is to seek an alliance with Illyasviel, since the mage controlled Heracles might be useful against the out of control Medea. Unfortunately they are not the only ones interested in her, Shinji and his new servant get there first. Their interest, however, is not in an alliance. Shinji’s servant knows that the Grail’s vessel is contained within Illyavsiel herself…

Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken (JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure)

The Joestar’s are a wealthy English family, but one with a dark fate. Ever since the days of Jonathon Joestar and his adopted brother Dio Brando, and the succession struggle that came about from Dio’s greed, the Joestar family line has found itself embroiled in supernatural horror and world-threatening ambition. And it always falls to the current Jojo, whomever it may be, to stop the madness.

Tonight’s Episode:The Game Master

Speedwagon has discovered, too late, that Straizo was not someone he could trust when it came to the Stone Mask. Or to a whole room full of stone masks. Now Straizo has made himself a vampire, with Speedwagon’s blood, and come to New York to kill the only people left who know of the mask, its powers and its weaknesses; the elderly Erina and her grandson Joseph Joestar. The new JoJo is the primary target, before his Hamon powers become a threat to Straizo. Unfortunately, he has underestimated both Jojo’s intelligence … and his capacity for doing crazy things.

The older tengu he was searching for turns out to be Nanami’s classmate and singing idol Kurama, but just finding him may not be the end of it.
