Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 20th August, 2016


Below is the program for August 20th, 2016.

We are going to have a Bean Poll as to whether to continue regular screening of “Fairy Tail”, since it has been polling poorly in the monthly surveys. If you vote ‘No’, be aware that we don’t yet have a replacement regular item. We would have to vote on that the next week. The suggestion for replacement show so far are “Fairy Tail Zero”, “Bunkou: Stray Dogs” and “Sailor Moon”. Our Suggestion box is open to other ideas. I am half hoping that somebody suggests the retro series “Card Captor Sakura”.
Unfortunately this seems to have distracted people from the idea of having an auction during the Dinner Break. Do you want to bring lots of money to bid on anime-related items during the Dinner Break this Saturday?

Though if you want distractions, we are not going to have just, not even just two, but three preview episodes this week.

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.
