Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 11th June, 2016


Below is the program for June 11th, 2016.

As we enter Winter, is anyone discontent that we farewell of “Sushi Police” this week? The JAFWA committee scrambles to find another worthy 5 minute series.
Along with this week’s preview screening of the first episode of “Joker Game”, we have two new regular series starting. Say Hello to “One Punch Man” and the third chapter of “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders”.

Though the JAFWA screening proves to be a good port of call in this inclement weather, do not trust that your love of exciting anime will heat your blood enough. Remember to bring enough warm clothing, as the club’s heaters struggle to keep the Hall at a comfortable temperature.

Again we would like to thank Lotteries West, who are preparing to provide us with a grant to continue our good work.
