Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 21st May, 2016


Below is the program for May 21st, 2016.

So many changes to the JAFWA regular program. Last week we farewelled “Shirobako” and “Death Parade”. This week we see the final episodes of “Noragami Aragato” and “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure ” (season 1).
But despair not, you have successfully voted in the next generation of JoJo, and we will see the ‘Stardust Crusaders’ chapter start in a few weeks time (consider how long it would normally take to produce the next generation).
That is not the only new regular items in the JAFWA program. This week marks the beginning of regular screenings of “GATE”, “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress” and “Erased”! With more to come next week. Note: since we screened the first episode of “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress” only a couple of sessions ago, we will go directly onto episode #2 this week.

A word of warning. The Autumn Equinox has come and gone, and old enemy the sun has been defeated once more. But as a certain series of books warn us “Winter is coming”. We no longer need to use the Hall’s ventilation to cool us, from now on we need to rug to keep warm.

We have almost forgotten to thank Lotteries West, who are preparing to provide us with a grant to continue our good work.

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.
