Screening on the evening of Saturday, June 25th 2022

We realise that Supanova 2022 – Perth is on this weekend, but it is for the full weekend. You can skip a couple of hours of it to safely attend JAFWA. It is our final screening night of June, the first one after the Winter Solstice. We need the moral support as once again our old enemy the sun claws its way back towards ascendancy.

What do you get this week, as we continue to warm your soul with the cultural goodness that is anime?

  • Firstly, we have the final episode of “Uramichi-Oniisan”, and farewell the stressful world of live children’s TV.
  • Secondly, a preview episode about two mismatched teenagers who discover they were swapped at birth.
  • Thirdly, a demonstration of love and care, as we survey our attendees as to which shows they like.
  • Fourthly, our Monthly Member’s Prize draw!
  • And finally, to end the night, we have the theatrical anime film “Goblin’s Crown”, carrying on from the rather violent TV series “Goblin Slayer”.

Uramichi-Oniisan Couple of Cuckoos Goblin's Crown

Nominate for the JAFWA committee

Official announcement that JAFWA is still taking nominations for election to the JAFWA committee.

Yes! this is when fresh blood enters the governing committee of JAFWA!
If you are have been a signed up JAFWA member for the last 3 months, and resident in WA (preferably the Perth region), please nominate your self for the election in July, by bringing written notification to either the President/Shogun Drew, or our Secretary/Daimyo Glenn.

This is a reminder to think about the upcoming Annual General Meeting and committee elections on July 16th. We request that all signed up members come along that afternoon to find out how the current committee have been doing over the last year, discuss issues to be dealt with, raise motions for actions to be carried out in your names, and then in the evening Dinner Break, vote in the new committee.

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.

Be aware that several cinemas (Hoyts and Event Innaloo) will be screening the theatrical anime movie “Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween” starting Thursday June 2nd. Choose your cinemas and language wisely.
Apologies, as we have already missed “Detective Conan The Movie: The Scarlet Bullet” and “Pompo the Cinephile” earlier this month, when I wasn’t looking.

New regular programs will be entering the program starting June 11th. We are processing the most recent survey results to guide our decision. More news next week.

No Event Afternoon this week!
We have come to the end of the month of May, and you know what that means – our monthly JAFWA Member’s Prize draw will take place. In addition to the chance to win the weekly Door Prize draw.

This week we will have one more preview episode before the Dinner Break.
For during the Dinner Break we shall have the Survey to see what you, our dear JAFWAites, enjoy and appreciate in the JAFWA program. And not just any Survey, for the results of this one will strongly influence the choosing of the new regular program items being introduced in June and July (as the current regular items finish). This survey will include the best results of previous surveys! JAFWA, you decide!

Screening on the evening of Saturday, May 21st 2022

Last week our attendees discovered why we always say “expected program” in these bulletins – there was a last minute change, in that we added a curious little preview item after the Late Break, and pushed an episode of “Cells at Work: Black” to this week. Don’t we make life exciting?
It seems like everyone adjusted well to the new Winter early hours program we started last week. Good thing too, as the Winter weather and darkness dropped in. We will keep these Winter hours until September.

This is another reminder to think about the upcoming Annual General Meeting and committee elections in July. We request that all signed up members come along that afternoon to find out how the current committee have been doing over the last year, discuss issues to be dealt with, raise motions for actions to be carried out in your names, and then in the evening Dinner Break, vote in the new committee.

As well as out normal regular items, we will also screen two preview episodes this week. Firstly, for the sake of World Peace, a master Spy must create a loving, fake family. And secondly, see the Prisoner’s Dilemma played out amongst five classmates.
We also have the final episode of “Fena: Pirate Princess”.

Covid-19 Safety Precautions

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible future waves of CoVid-19, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.

  • Help is always welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19 precautions.
  • No longer need to arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. Contact Tracing, either by the SafeWA app on your keitai (mobile phones), or by signing in at the contact tracing sheet near the entry, is no longer required.
  • We are no long required by City of South Perth to check our attendees’ Vaccination status.

We have reached the end of the month of May already, and the weather will be telling us it is no longer Summery (last week’s sausage sizzle was a last hurrah – mmmm sizzled sausages).

Screening on Saturday 30th April 2022

Screening on the evening of Saturday, April 30th 2022

We thank everyone who attended last week’s marathon anime afternoon. An apology for the movie running over-length, we are a little out of practice with marathon screenings. Hope everybody enjoyed the movie. Perhaps we should have more practice? Something to consider for the AGM in July.
At any rate, the episodes of “non non biyori repeat”, and “uramichi-oniisan” that we were forced to skip last week, will be pushed instead to this week.

We have reached the end of the month of April already. So you know what that means – the monthly JAFWA member prize.
Also, we will have our member survey, where you tell us what you enjoy on the JAFWA program by ranking regular items and recent preview items.
But that is not all! We have a preview episode before the Dinner Break, that will hopefully demonstrate the effort of taking it easy.

Ya Boy Kongming!

Still looking for a couple of volunteers to help out at our next Bunnings Sausage Sizzle fundraiser, to be held Saturday May 7th at Cannington Bunnings.

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.

Covid-19 Safety Precautions

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible future waves of CoVid-19, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
– Help is always welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19 precautions.
– Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. There will be Contact Tracing, either by the SafeWA app on your keitai (mobile phones), or by signing in at the contact tracing sheet near the entry.
– We are now required by City of South Perth to check our attendees’ Vaccine status.

Below is the tentative program for the evening of Saturday April 30th, 2022.
