Screening on the evening of September 25th 2021

Remenber that we have returned to holding JAFWA sessions starting at 5:15PM. Mainly due to our old enemy the sun, trying to once more take ascendency in the sky. The Equinox will have passed, amd nights grow shorter than the daylight.
Our formal poll of regarding our grand experiment of starting (and ending) an hour earlier in May through Augusthas passed 19 to 2.

This being the last JAFWA session in August, expect usual end of month Survey during the Dinner Break this week. There will be a few new timeslots opening in the program starting next month, and the surveys help the JAFWA committe decide upon what to put on.
Followed by the monthly Member’s Prize draw.

This week, 2 of our regular series finish (though Attack on Titan still has part B of the final season to come out).
This week we will also preview another anime series from Japan, and witness how burn-out affects actors in a children’s TV show.

Screening on Saturday 11th September 2021

Screening on the evening of September 11th 2021

After the grand experiment of starting (and ending) an hour earlier in August, this month we return to holding JAFWA sessions starting at 5:15PM. Mainly due to our old enemy the sun, trying to once more take ascendency in the sky.
However, we will be organising a formal poll of your ideas regarding our August experiment, and the possibility of a permanent change to our Winter operating hours.

Recently, anime sessions have been released in 1-cour (ie a Season of 12~13 weekly episodes) blocks, where a series that would have 24 episodes across two Seasons (ie 2 cour) is instead is released in two half series. And so it is with the second season of “That Time I Was Re-incarnated as a Slime”.
This week we hit the midpoint (ie end of part 1) of the second series, so after tonight we will take a hiatus for a while before considering showing part2 of the second season of “That Time I Was Re-incarnated as a Slime”. Meaning next week we get to see a new regular series, so stay tuned.

This week we will be starting a new regular series, and the third series of “Fruits Basket” was chosen from the monthly survey rankings. We will also have two preview episodes, the intriguing “Sonny Boy”, and the “Cells at Work: Code Black”, set in an unhealthy body with unhealthy habits.

Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 28th August 2021

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

It has been 3 months since the last one. JAFWA has the hall from about 12:00PM to 3:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen, and see if your game machine can plug into it. I am not certain we have access to the outdoor area, but we will try to keep you off the street.
In the past people have brought along video games and the hardware to play them, and sewing machines for cosplay creating. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.

Early Screening on the late afternoon and evening of August 28th 2021

This month we are experimenting with holding the JAFWA sessions an hour earlier, to counteract the cold Winter.
So remember to turn up for a 4:15 start! During the month of August only. Next month we go back to the normal 5:15PM start.

This being the last JAFWA session in August, expect usual end of month Survey during the Dinner Break this week. There will be a few new timeslots opening in the program starting next month, and the surveys help the JAFWA committe decide upon what to put on.
Followed by the monthly Member’s Prize draw.

This week will be the final episode of “Ascendance of a Bookworm”. A pleasant little isekai show, that did not suffer from being overpowered in the fantasy department.

No Screening on Saturday 7th August 2021

No JAFWA on the first Saturday of August (7th)

Life! that glorious thing called “Life” can be enjoyed and celebrated this week!
So long as appropriate contagion control measures are followed by everybody.
Before we return, you get to celebrate, in your own personal way, International Patlabor Day on August 10th

JAFWA intends to return on August 14th, pandemic permitting.

Big News!
As part of the AGM resolution of that it is too cold in Winter to screen anime late, JAFWA is going to do a trial run of being 1 hour earlier in August. Meaning doors open ~4PM, and we send you home about 9:45PM.
After August we will do a bean poll to see how you enjoyed the altered hours. September will be the normal hours.

Annual General Meeting resolutions

Resolutions that occurred during the AGM on July 17th include:

  1. Experiment with earlier hours during the coldest part of Winter. – We have changed the bookings for August for this trial.
  2. Have a celebratory Dinner for the JAFWA committee members and general members, to be held on the evening of Saturday December 18th 2021, in lieu of a screening.

We will be attempting to implement these as soon as practical.

Currently we are looking for suggestions for a location for the dinner, and we are taking expressions of interest for attendees.
We will need to make the booking by the end of October, so places and attendance numbers by then.

Screening on Saturday 31st July 2021

The honeymoon session with new (old) JAFWA committee in charge went rather well, with quite a few people enjoying the bonus item we screened. The committee would appreciate it if other such items were brought to our attention.
Please continue giving appropriate obesience to your beloved committee members. I am sure that Drew, Glenn, Mark, Sally, Dale and Greg would appreciate it.

This being the last JAFWA session in July, expect usual end of month Survey during the Dinner Break this week. We have had a few preview episodes recently, that you will need to decide between. And we will throw in one more this evening – since last week’s preview episode was half-length, this week’s preview episode will be double-length.
Followed by the monthly Member’s Prize draw.

Screening on Saturday 24th July 2021

All praise to our new (old) JAFWA committee overlords
We had a successful AGM, and due to lack of anybody else nominating, a non-election for the JAFWA committee. So your beloved committee members continue to be Drew, Glenn, Mark, Sally, Dale and Greg.

The gap in the program caused by the end of “Cells At Work” will be filled in August with a new regular series. This week, we will have not one, not two, but three preview episodes to whet your appetite for the cultural profundity of anime. A slice of life, a robot’s battle against destiny, and steampunk vampires – what more can you ask for?
And we might even manage to sneak in a bonus item.
