Saturday 12th May, 2012

The tentative JAFWA program for Saturday 12th May 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) Warning! JAFWA committee elections coming for June 16. To be a valid nominee you need a current financial memberships from now on.
2) The recent Bean Poll was 25 to 3 in favour of retaining “Tiger and Bunny” in the JAFWA program. Please do not hurt the 3 dissenters. For fans of this series, be aware that Siren Entertainment have the Australian licence so they are likely to bring out a DVD set sometime soon.


Dale’s Suggestive Remarks, based on suggestion sheets handed in at JAFWA:
From 14 April 2012 is the suggestion:

(Kids on the Slope)

Great animation, directing and music compositions by the same people who worked on Cowboy Bebop.

I have not yet had a chance to see this anime, which apparently started screening in Japan in April. However with Shihichirou Watanabe directing and music by Yoko Kanno, this anime sounds like it has a top class pedigree. Once more Jazz shall rule!
I command my JAFWA minions to obtain me a copy so that I may be properly educated. And then maybe we will show the rest of the JAFWA audience.

From 21 April 2012 is the unsigned suggestion:

Play Black Lagoon
Black Lagoon – Roberta’s Revenge

JAFWA did try screening the first episode of “Black Lagoon” back in 2008 but there was not enough interest to put it as a regular item in the JAFWA program.
Since then Madman has picked up the Australian licence and have released the first 2 seasons locally. However, I have not heard if Madman has the rights to the 3rd season -“Roberta’s Blood Trail”.
I am always reluctant to screen a later series of a show if JAFWA has not screened the first season, mainly because so many JAFWAites will simply not be familiar with the story and characters. Still, I will ask the programming committee if they might find room in our crowded schedule for a preview item, if a preview copy can be found.

From 21 April 2012 is yet another unsigned sheet, this time from Greg labelled “Suggestions”:

I suggest Black Rock Shooter the TV series be shown by JAFWA. It has very good action scenes with incredible backgrounds. It would be good to replace ‘c’ when it finishes.

I must admit that the original “Black Rock Shooter” OAV was intriguing.
And I know it was Greg who wrote this Suggestion because he was so kind as to provide JAFWA with the first several episodes of the TV series. SO few people have any idea as to how useful that is.
Hopefully the JAFWA committee will soon be entranced.
