Saturday 14th April, 2012

JAFWA is starting late
with a special theme night

The tentative JAFWA program for Saturday 14th April 2012 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) Because Swancon and Easter are on the weekend of April 7 this year, Westlodge is wanting to do their session on afternoon of April 14 before JAFWA. In fact they are asking if they could get about 30 minutes of our session so that they can finish up. So JAFWA will be a little short that evening. We are looking to make this week a themed night rather than a regular program. Nephi has been designing the program, and he has revealed that the theme is going to be Comedy/Silly.

Dale’s Suggestive Remarks, based on suggestion sheets handed in at JAFWA:
From March 31 was an unsigned feedback form entitled “Anime Suggestion – Recorder & Ransell“::

3 minute anime about a brother & sister.
Brother is 11 years old but is 180 cm and looks like an adult. Sister is in high school but 137 cm and looks like a grade school student.

Thank you!
I had heard of this title and heard good things about it, but then lost all my references. Now that I have the name again, I can look further into this.

And another unsigned feedback form labelled “New anime“:

Plez poot on
kuromaja-san Touru
Kore wa Zombie Desuka of the Dead
Medaka Box

I am going to be generous and interpret “Plez poot on” as “Please put on”. Other interpretations don’t bear thinking upon.

The first title you mentioned is probably “Kuro-Majo-san ga Touru”, which roughly translates as “Here comes the Black Witch”. I am not aware if this children’s manga has been turned into an anime.
The second title you mention appears to be a combination of two titles – “Kore wa Zombie desu ka” and “high school of the dead”. JAFWA has screened the first episode of both of these series to a somewhat lack-lustre response. The “High school of the Dead” anime is currently available locally from Madman.
“Medaka Box” only just started screening on Japanese TV last week or so. Which means the JAFWA providers might soon get a copy. So stay tuned for a future preview sample.
“AKB0048” is an anime that hasn’t even been screened in Japan yet, based off of the pop group AKB48
Is “Upoote” the original net animation based on cute girl anthropomorphised guns?

Actually, examining your list makes me feel disturbed. An anime based off of pop singers? What will they inflict upon us next…
