Screening on the evening of Saturday, July 27th 2024

The month of July comes to an end and with the excitement of the AGM and elections now past it is once again time for JAFWA to perform its anime screening of goodness. While we seek a replacement for “Non Non Biyori nonstop”, we will have a preview item to add numbers to the survey.
Yes, you heard that correct – we will be having quick survey during the Dinner Break to see which items are enjoyed by the membership, so please be honest and scalar. Who knows – you might want to vote for the second season of “Oshi no Ko“, as the first season finishes this week.
Not to mention that it will also be the monthly Member’s Prize draw!
Preview, prize and pop-quiz. (short of being in quarantine isolation) Why aren’t you coming along?

Oshi no Ko

For those of you who are interested, the Japanese Film Festival has gone from showing a series of Japanese movies online, to now showing TV episodes.

On the night nearest your birthday, you can nominate something to play during the Dinner Break (limited to 30 minutes max). You may have to help us source this material, so plan in advance please.

AGM followed Screening of Saturday 20th July 2024

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING before JAFWA Screening

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

Please be advised that on the 20th of July 2024 the Japanese Animation Fans of Western Australia will be holding it’s 2024 Annual General Meeting.

The meeting will be held at the Collins Street Centre in South Perth from 2:00pm onwards. The regular screening will commence afterwards, and during the dinner break the committee election will be held. As well as a Special General Meeting.

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.

AGM Adenda item

Fellow JAFWA Member,

The JAFWA Board of Committee formally announces that on 20 July 2024 – the day of the JAFWA 2024 AGM – the Board will propose changes to the JAFWA Constitution and By-Laws to update how the club operates and how the Committee may operate.

The details to be discussed at the AGM are:

  • Changes to the wording of section 8 of the By-Laws regarding the usage of Cheques to move monies of a value of greater than $100, and associated terminology, to be updated to include the electronic transfer of funds and associated terminology; and
  • Clarification as to whom the JAFWA committee may loan monies, the terms of the amount loaned, and instances where said loans require the approval of the JAFWA Membership.

These details will be clarified at the AGM, however to ensure that we have a greater number of members available to vote, the vote will be by SGM to be held at 6:00pm during the dinner break.

Date: 20/07/2024
Time: 6:00pm
Location: Collins Street Centre South Perth

Screening on the evening of Saturday, July 20th 2024, after the AGM

With the necessary AGM business out of the way JAFWA performs its anime screening of goodness. This week we have one more OAV episode of “Non Non Biyori nonstop” to help the passing of this slice of life anime.
Also, our first preview episode of July. Remember the old sentai shows, where 5 or so heroes are empowered as Rangers to defeat the alien overlords, their disposable minions and the monster of the week? How it would go on and on. And how after 13 years one of the disposable minions seeks to upset the status quo, by sneaking off and transforming into the most despicable monster of all…

!

Go Go Loser Ranger

Now hopefully there will be enough nominees for the JAFWA annual election to be held during the Dinner Break of our beloved JAFWA screening this week. But things are not looking promising, so the AGM is going to move for an SGM during the Dinner Break. Only signed up JAFWA members can vote in the AGM, so we will be providing voting tokens valid voters.

For those of you who are interested, the Japanese Film Festival has gone from showing a series of Japanese movies online, to now showing TV episodes.

If you don’t want to sponsor an entire night like Lindsay did in March, and the one coming in November, there is the other scheme for our signed up members. On the night nearest your birthday, you can nominate something to play during the Dinner Break (limited to 30 minutes max). You may have to help us source this material, so plan in advance please.

And there is the end of year irregular screening to consider. What do you want to see in it?

Screening of Saturday 29th June 2024

Screening on the evening of Saturday, June 29th 2024

June comes to an end, as has that fandom fixture and JAFWA friend for many years Tokyo Underground has closed. We thank Bronwyn for her many years of wonderful service and best wishes for her activities in the future (who knows, she may finally have enough free time to attend JAFWA).
With the ending of this first month of Winter (according to the Bureau of Meteorology) and you know what that means – it is the monthly Member’s Prize draw!
Also, we will be having quick survey during the Dinner Break to see which items are enjoyed by the membership, so please be honest and scalar.

For those of you who are interested, the Japanese Film Festival has gone from showing a series of Japanese movies online, to now showing TV episodes.

This week, the long-awaited final movie of the final part of the final season of “Attack on Titan” is going to be finally shown (though the end credits suggest the possibility of continuation). We realise that Supanova – Perth may be happening this weekend but you won’t be missing attending JAFWA, as there is a whole other day you can attend the Convention.

Screening of Saturday 22nd June 2024

Screening on the evening of Saturday, June 22nd 2024

A fixture of the Perth fandom scene for many years, and a long-time supporter of JAFWA, we are saddened by the news that Tokyo Underground is closing. Their final day of trading has probably now passed, as they have to vacate premises at the end of this month, June 30th. Bronwyn and her shop shall be missed.

The Japanese Film Festival is showing a series of Japanese movies online, including the live-action “ANIME SUPREMACY!” (2022 / Drama, Anime, Business) a delightful story about people pouring their passion into anime production.

JAFWA‘s June program has stabilised, unlike the financial situation at Studio Gainax (they declared bankruptcy if you hadn’t heard). So many wonderful memories and experience their anime brought to JAFWA audiences, and yet from the ashes of their anime empire is it possible that new wonderful anime arise, as their animators go to other studios? We shall eventually see, but for now it is the winter of our discontent.

Just out of curiousity, which of the following Studio Gainax works that we have shown at JAFWA have you enjoyed (and maybe want to see again?):

Screening of Saturday 15th June 2024

Screening on the evening of Saturday, June 15th 2024

Last week was a rather interesting one, where the attending audience of JAFWA did vote on which episode of the 3 new series to watch. We were bemused with “Shuumatsu Train”, charmed by “Spice and Wolf” and suitably thrilled with “Witch and The Beast”. That won’t happen this week with the 4th new series introduced this month, as this one will definitely start at episode #1.

This week we are going to also try and fit in the one and only preview item that June can accommodate, since the second of the “Attack on Titan” movies will take up so much of our program at the end of the month. Don’t forgot to be here when JAFWA tees off at just after 4PM this Saturday, with both our usual program and the special inclusions:

  1. Our June preview episode will be for “Ooi! Tonbo“, where a local island kid gets involved with the sport of golf.
  2. And our new regular series will be the 3rd season of the oft request “KonoSuba” where our re-incarnated protagonist learns to live and survive in a swords and sorcery world with some very “unique” companions.
Ooi! Tonbo
Konosuba 3

A fixture of the Perth fandom scene for many years, and a long-time supporter of JAFWA, we are saddened by the news that Tokyo Underground is closing. Their final day of trading is going to be at the end of this month, June 30th, and they have already begun marking down prices for the final sale. We encourage you to check this out.

TU closing

If you don’t want to sponsor an entire night like Lindsay did in March, and the one coming in November, there is the other scheme for our signed up members. On the night nearest your birthday, you can nominate something to play during the Dinner Break (limited to 30 minutes max). You may have to help us source this material, so plan in advance please.

The other big decision coming up is the JAFWA annual election to be held during the Dinner Break of the JAFWA screening of July 20th. This will be later in the evening after the AGM that we need all signed up JAFWA members to attend when it starts in the afternoon at 2PM in the same Hall.

Screening of Saturday 9th June 2024

Screening on the evening of Saturday, June 9th 2024

As the Australian Bureau of Meteorology tells us, it is now officially Winter. And as the June darkness and rain descends upon, it is ever more required that we warm our souls by anime’s satisfying glow, in the company of your fellow otaku.
I probably won’t need to remind people that JAFWA is currently operating on Winter hours. Just continue coming about 4PM with preparations to go home at about 9:45PM. This situation will continue through to September. Blame it on the lack of daily sunshine and warmth.

Excitement abounds this week, with one regular series ending and three (3 count them 3) new regular series starting this week at JAFWA. Unfortunately that means that we will not have any room for a preview episode this week, but then again your dutiful committee members need some time to browse through the great crops of anime produced in Japan and winnow it down to a few, worthy anime previews.

There is still some discussion about which 3 regulars series start this week, but tentatively:

  1. Where Does the Doomsday Train Go?“, where some rural school-girls go on an odyssey to Tokyo to find a friend before the doom of this post-apocalyptic world embraces them.
  2. Spice and Wolf” a remake of a beloved series where a medieval merchant hosts the travels of the Wise Wolf Holo.
  3. And towards the end of the night shall be “Witch and Beast” in a world where witches are rightly feared, something more fearsome hunts them.

No Screening this Saturday, 1st June 2024

No JAFWA screening until Saturday 8th June 2024!

This Saturday, while you are all out there enjoying life without JAFWA (if you can call such a life “enjoyable”), spare an appreciative thought for your respected JAFWA committee members hard at work designing the program for June. We are feeling the effects of all the regular series that came to an end during April and May so the when JAFWA returns on June 8th, our program will have holes requiring a few new regular series that are yet to be decided. Your beloved committee’s decision on filling those 3 holes in the program will be skewed by the survey performed last week, so we hope you rated the options wisely.

We expect that members who have done extra-curricula anime watching of the “Haikyuu” sports anime will go to see the animated feature ” HAIKYU!!: THE DUMPSTER BATTLE” expected in various cinemas, from Thursday June 30th.

If you don’t want to sponsor an entire night like Lindsay did in March, there is the other scheme for our signed up members. On the night nearest your birthday, you can nominate something to play during the Dinner Break (limited to 30 minutes max). You may have to help us source this material, so plan and inform us in advance please.

Screening of Saturday 25th May 2024

Screening on the evening of Saturday, May 25th 2024

And thus May comes to an end and you know what that means – it is the monthly Member’s Prize draw! Also, we will be having quick survey during the Dinner Break to see which items are enjoyed by the membership, so please be honest and scalar. I probably won’t need to remind people that JAFWA is operating on Winter hours. Just continue coming about 4PM with preparations to go home at 9:45PM. This situation will continue through to September. Blame it on the lack of daily sunshine and warmth.

Once again apologies that we did not screen “Demon Slayer” last week. We didn’t screen it the first week of May because for some reason it didn’t show in Japan. It showed in Japan last week, but we found out too late that it was a double-length episode, so we couldn’t fit it in the program last week (instead showing an extra episode of “Oshi no Ko”). Hence we screen it this week!

A fixture of the Perth fandom scene for many years, and a long-time supporter of JAFWA, we are saddened by the news that Tokyo Underground is closing. Their final day of trading is going to be June 30th, and they have already begun marking down prices for the final sale.

TU closing

This week our JAFWA program has some excitement, in the form of:

  • If all goes according to schedule the the fourth and final series of “Demon Slayer” will begin screening this week, as we enter the Hashira Training story arc.
  • A preview episode for inclusion in the survey, about youthful grandparents.
  • We farewell our beloved “The Masterful Cat is Depressed Again Today” with its final episode.
  • And finally, we begin the complete the awesome “Attack on Titan” series with the first of two conclusionary movies (the second in June).
