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?):

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 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.

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).

Screening on the evening of Saturday, May 18th 2024

A pleasure to see so many people returning to JAFWA last week. And nobody had problems with JAFWA operating on Winter hours. Just a reminder to continue coming about 4PM with preparations to go home at 9:45PM. This situation will continue through to September.

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.

This week our JAFWA program, if everything goes to schedule, will say hello to a new regular program item, and also finds room for a couple of preview items this week. Whether these preview items will reach the approval rating of “Bartender” from last week is something you will have to come along to see and appreciate.

  • 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.
  • Our first preview episode will be a slice of life, if humans and yokai co-existed peacefully in village life.
  • Our second preview episode is a remake of an old favourite series once shown many years ago, as a merchant acquires a traveling companion that only appears human when it suits her.

Screening of Saturday 11th May 2024

Screening on the evening of Saturday, May 11th 2024

Welcome to the wonderful month of May! Do remember that due to reduced daylight hours and reduced night-time temperatures, JAFWA will now be operating on Winter hours, so come about 4PM and prepare to go home at 9:45PM. This situation will continue through to September.
We expect that members, such as Collin, who have done extra-curricula anime watching of the “Rascal Does Not Dream” anime will go to see animated double feature “Rascal Does Not Dream of a Sister Venturing Out” and “Rascal Does Not Dream of a Knapsack Kid” expected in various cinemas, for a strictly limited season, from Thursday May 9th.

This week our JAFWA program says hello to a new regular program item, and also finds room for a couple of preview items this week. All this and a mystery item.
– “Oshi no Ko” will screen from episode #2 this week (We showed the movie length first episode back in November, we are not screening it again), involving re-incarnation, revenge and idols. But to recap – Dr. Gorou Amamiya is an avid fan of the idol Ai Hoshino, spurred on partly due to her being the favorite idol of a deceased patient of his named Sarina Tendouji. Gorou is shocked when Ai quietly arrives at his rural hospital 20 weeks pregnant with twins. On her due date, Gorou is killed by Ai’s stalker Ryosuke. He then wakes up and discovers he has been reborn as Ai’s son Aquamarine and lives together with her and his twin sister Ruby. Ruby herself is the reincarnation of Sarina.
– Our first preview episode will be a mecha series where human soldiers defend against an alien mecha invasion, until…..
– Our second preview episode investigates the skill of a master bartender.
– As for the mystery item, this was supposed to be the new series of “Demon Slayer”, but it is not out in Japan yet so we can’t screen it until later this month. Instead another preview item must be watched, out of the many good possibilities out there.

No Screening this Saturday, 4th May 2024

No JAFWA screening until Saturday 11th May 2024!

This Saturday, while you are all out there enjoying life without JAFWA (if you can call such a life “enjoyable”), you could always pop down to Cannington Bunnings for a sausage sizzle and a little exposure to JAFWA. For yes, this Saturday May the Fourth (be with you) JAFWA is running the sausage sizzle stand, infusing them with anime goodness as it exudes from our otaku hearts. Having tried them before, I know they taste delicious!

May is almost upon us, and beginning in May through to September inclusive, we shall operate 1 hour earlier, to take advantage of the Night ascendant (after all, we are only 1 1/2 months from the Winter Solstice). Make certain to arrive for a 4:15PM start at JAFWA screenings from now on.

We expect that members, sucj as Collin, who have done extra-curricula anime watching of the “Rascal Does Not Dream” anime will go to see animated double feature “Rascal Does Not Dream of a Sister Venturing Out” and “Rascal Does Not Dream of a Knapsack Kid” expected in various cinemas, for a strictly limited season, form Thursday May 9th.

When JAFWA returns on May 11th, our program will include a new regular series involving re-incarnation, revenge and idols.

April 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.
Meanwhile we hope everybody is enjoying the “Spy x Family” movie “Code White” in the cinemas, but make certain to enjoy it subbed rather than dubbed.

This week our JAFWA program bids farewell to a couple of regular program items, yet also finds room for another preview item this week.
MS-Gundam: The Witch From Mercury” come to the end of its season as we screen its final two episodes. And to end the night we end the second season of “Goblin Slayer“.
Our preview episode at the beginning involves a young child in a fantasy world discovering she is considered worthless, magically speaking, and the magical slime she befriends. Based off of the manga volumes in the JAFWA library.

Screening on the evening of Saturday, April 20th 2024

April continues, where in Japan the Sakura is blossoming and the school year begins.
Remember that this is the last month we will be operating in Summer hours. Winter hours is coming in May.
We hope that everybody who went to the cinemas enjoyed the “Spy x Family” movie “Code White” after it started on Thursday April 18. As a true JAFWAite you will enjoy it subbed rather than dubbed.

Our JAFWA program bids farewell to a couple of regular items this week, yet also finds room for a couple of preview items this week. (you will have to remain on tenterhooks regarding “Jujitsu Kaisen” a little longer)
Ancient Magus Bride” come to the end of its second season, while “The Eminence in Shadow” has come to the end of its first season (yes, apparently they have made a 2nd anime season).
For the first preview, in a swords and sorcery setting a Princess encounters advanced interrogation techniques. We put this after the Dinner Break, but do hope you have a strong stomach.
For the second preview, we have mysterious tales of urban myths that can’t possibly be real.
