Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 30th July, 2016


Below is the program for July 30th, 2016.

The Election has been decided, with Nathaniel “Nephi” Mitchell graciously bowing out leaving the way for Paul “Redraw” Clune to join the JAFWA committee.

Tonight is going to be a movie night, but we haven’t found a full-length movie that seem appropriate, so instead we will have a selection of shorter movies and OAVs.
Typically on a movie night we offer free entry to those people in anime cosplay, but we suspect most people would prefer to rug up a bit more than the typical anime costume provides.

Another reason to attend – we will be auctioning off good stuff during the Dinner Break. Bring Lots of Money.

Again we would like 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.

Flying Witch

The cheerful and pleasant Kowata Makoto has come to Aomori to complete high school. She will be boarding with her cousin Muramoto Kei. Nothing unusual there right? Well, not quite.

It seems that Mari’s father invented a time machine …

Mari Hayase is more likely to take after her patissier mother than her scientist father. Not that her family has seen or heard from her father in 3 years, which isn’t too remarkable for him. But when she visit’s her friend Waka’s house, she discovers that Waka’s brother has one of her father’s books. And that the necklace that her father gave her, triggers and transports her through time. A Japanese schol uniform is considered scandalous in England of several centuries ago. Will Waka get her friend back? Will Mari find a clue to where, and when, her father is?
