Saturday 10th September, 2011

No JAFWA on September 3rd.
Take the weekend off to enjoy Life, or even attend WestLodge.

The tentative JAFWA program for Saturday 10th September 2011 is below. To be held in the Collins Street Community Center on Collins Street just off Canning Highway in South Perth.

Things of Note:
1) The last Bean Poll said we should keep showing “Fairy Tail” by a vote of 25 to 14.
2) “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood” finished with a spontaneous round of applause from the audience.
3) We start screening a new TV series, the CLAMP version of Blood the Last Vampire, with stylish blood and gore of vampire extermination.Blood-C, the complicated CLAMP version
4) And we have the final theatrical episode of “Break Blade“, post-apocalyptic mecha action and political intrigue from the light novel series “Broken Blade”. Break Blade japanese image
5) Do we wish to order calendars from Japan this year?
6) A reminder that the Hall does not have adequate heating, so come prepared with enough layers of clothing for the Winter Season.

Dale’s Suggestive Remarks, based on suggestion sheets handed in at JAFWA:
First time suggestee Caitlyn Boxshall on 20/Aug/2011 writes on the Topic of Anime Suggestions:

  • Durara
  • Darker Than Black
  • Ao No Exorcist
  • No.6

The series “Durara” does not look like it will be entering the JAFWA program any time soon. Not even as a preview sample. We have too much taste.

JAFWA did preview “Darker than Black” back in 2007, but there did not seem to be too much interest at the time. Now that it is available locally on DVD through Madman, it seems unlikely we would devote any of our limited program time to this intriguing title.

Flipping Heck! I have checked the records and it appears that JAFWA has not previewed “Ao no Exorcist”. And I thought that we had – dabnabbit. It is a rather pretty show with a new variation of a under-used theme, presented with a moderately interesting story-line. I had hoped that JAFWA could screen at least a preview of this show, but it looks like our limited timeslot problem raised its ugly head and left no room for this to be sampled.
What did we preview instead? Looks like “Yumekui Merry”, “Tegami Bachi”, “Stein;s Gate” and a few others. Oh, I see, we needed room to screen “Break Blade” one night so we took the “Ao no Exorcist” preview out of the program and forgot to put it back in. Sorry!

Just because “No. 6” looks like it had an incipient yaoi relationship developing in the first episode we sampled, it seems to have excited more than a few members of the female portion of the audience. I wonder how I can use this to my advantage?
