No Screening this Saturday, 3rd December 2022

No JAFWA until Saturday 10th December 2022

JAFWA is taking a break from screening this week, to enjoy that wonderful thing known as “Life”. It will be the first weekend in Summer, I am sure we can find something to do (even go to the cinemas and see the “Quintessential Quintuplets” movie, the sequel to the TV series we didn’t show at JAFWA).

We thank the Japanese Film Festival for bringing us a wide variety of films over November 21->27.

While JAFWA has learnt its lesson in holding a marathon screening on a hot summer day, JAFWA’s final screening of 2022, on Saturday 10th December, will be a irregular, normal duration program. We have nearly finalised the program, now that we have gained permission to screen the movie “Belle”.

Below is the tentative program for the evening of Saturday December 10th, 2022.

Event arvo and Screening on Saturday 26th November 2022

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about ~1PM to 4:30PM, 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. 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.

Sally had a wicked look in her eye as to what to do this Event Arvo.

Screening on the evening of Saturday, November 26th 2022

The month of November seems to be so busy with events for the fannish minded. Last weekend’s big event was the [ KaiCon ] Kaiga Anime Convention 2022 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, later this week is the start of the Japanese Film Festival, and this Saturday JAFWA is hosting an Event afternoon of make your own fun. This weekend is also the closest screening to the 32nd birthday of JAFWA. Maybe I will bring sushi to celebrate!

On a somewhat somber note – this is JAFWA’s last regular screening of the year. We will be finishing two regular series, and holding a survey to help decide what the program will be when we resume regular screening in January.
Also, this is the last opportunity to put in requests for the special screening of December 10th.

While many people will be enjoying [ KaiCon ] Kaiga Anime Convention 2022 on this weekend at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre,


don’t forget to stop by JAFWA in the evening for some anime screening.

The less said about the mixup in “Golden Kamuy” episodes last week, the happier the rather contrite and very apologetic MC will be. Sorry.

Screening on the evening of Saturday, November 12th 2022

The month of November dawns, and we once again praise our Librarian Kris and his Sun Disactivator. Technically JAFWA is starting a new regular series this week, but strictly speaking it is the continuation of the wonderful “Golden Kamuy” as our intrepid gold seekers invade Imperial Russia.
And we will sneak in a preview episode aimed at the DIY enthusiasts, called “Do It Yourself”.

And we have scored some passes to see “One Piece: Red” at the cinemas. Can anyone say “Door Prizes”?

No Screening this Saturday, 5th November 2022

No JAFWA until Saturday 12th November 2022

JAFWA is taking a break from screening this week, to enjoy that wonderful thing known as “Life”. We on your beloved JAFWA committee will be doing a Bunnings Sausage Sizzle at Cannington Bunnings on Saturday 5th November. Come down and have a sausage in a bun or three, for we put as much care into making them as our JAFWA program.

As mentioned below in the “Dates of Interest” section, the latest One Piece: Red anime film starts in various cinemas (check your local cinema) this week, so you can avoid anime withdrawal.

Screening on the evening of Saturday, October 29th 2022

A reminder that the Japanese Film Festival is upon us. Book tickets early or risk missing out

The month of October draws to an end, though the program at JAFWA starts a two more new regular series – Firstly the second season of “Spy x Family”, and the long requested next season of “Ascendance of a Bookworm”.
“Golden Kamuy” will not be on this week, but we intend to see its return in November. This week enjoy two episode of “Tokyo Revengers”.

Also, we have our monthly member’s draw, and the monthly survey.

Spy x Family Ascendance of a Bookworm

Don’t forget that we have gone back to our normal 5:15PM start.

Japanese Calendars

It is that time of year again – when Japanese calendars for 2023 are available order. The JAFWA MC is personally taking orders up till the end of October (ie this week). I have received an order already, and I will probably fulfill the order from here. It is early yet, so not all of the calendars have been listed so far. The link I gave pointed to only Anime calendars, but the left menu shows other categories if you are interested.
This site may be slightly more up-to-date in titles being listed.

The Australian dollar is not buying much these days, but probably more than last year, and if we bundle our orders together, we should be able to get cheaper shipping rates. So long as we don’t miss the pre-order period.

Cash for Containers

As people may have noticed, JAFWA collects the recyclable containers (cans and bottles) that are disposed of by our attendees. It helps in a small way.

The month of October still has an extra change to the program at JAFWA, in the form of a cutting-edge devilishly popular preview episode, and a special to whet your appetite for the “Dr Stone” 3rd series expected in 2023.
Two more new regular series will start the week after.
And don’t be sad about the second series of “Golden Kamuy” this week, for we will see its return in November.

First an alert that the Japanese Film Festival is upon us. Book tickets early or risk missing out

The month of October brings further changes to the program at JAFWA.
Firstly, we weren’t able to implement all the new programs we originally intended to implement. Nor did we have room for a retro series. We got too ambitious. Sorry.
Secondly, we are going to start a new regular series this week – the second season of “The Devil is a Part-Timer”. Why did they wait so long to produce this sequel???
Thirdly, our beloved series “Spy x Family” finishes this evening, with two episodes. There will be a brief hiatus before the second series appears.
Fourthly, we will have a preview item this week, based off of a series of computer games.
Fifthly, we went with “Tokyo Revengers” because it turns out that “Jujutsu Kaisen” is commercially available locally.

Devil is a Part-timer Spy x Family Legend of Mana Tokyo Revengers

Don’t forget that we go back to out 5:15PM start.

Screening on Saturday 8th October 2022

Screening on the evening of Saturday, October 8th 2022

Most importantly! JAFWA will return to our regular hours in October. Come along at 5PM!

The month of October is upon us all too soon at JAFWA. And the JAFWA program is going through changes!
Not only will we be screening the final two episodes of the 3rd season of “Log Horizon”, we have four new regular series to start screening this week. We have analysed the survey results from the last time and guide us towards the best possible program, with further series to add later this month. Be prepared for a pleasant surprise when you come to JAFWA this week.

Shadows House Legend of Galactic Heroes Made in Abyss Jujutsu Kaisen

Don’t forget that we go back to out 5:15PM start.

Japanese Calendars

It is that time of year again – when Japanese calendars for 2023 are available order. If I (the JAFWA MC) get enough interest, I will probably order from here. It is early yet, so not all of the calendars have been listed so far. The link I gave pointed to only Anime calendars, but the left menu shows other categories if you are interested.
This site may be slightly more up-to-date in titles being listed.

The Australian dollar is not buying much these days, but probably more than last year, but if we bundle our orders together, we should be able to get cheaper shipping rates. We have probably missed the pre-order period.

Cash for Containers

As people may have noticed, JAFWA collects the recyclable containers (cans and bottles) that are disposed of by our attendees. It helps in a small way.

if you too would like to help JAFWA, and get rid of your unwanted recyclable containers, then please take them to Containers for Change, and quote JAFWA’s account number – C10505693.

JAFWA is taking a break from screening this week, as we process the survey results and decide what new series begin their regular showing at JAFWA (more info next week).
