Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 10th September, 2016


We spring into Haru, with the program for September 10th, 2016 below.

We return to JAFWA after having said goodbye to a faithful old series. “Fairy Tail” is shown no more, a more family (restaraunt) friendly anime has been chosen in its place, the third season of “Working!!!”. Once more we shall delight in the everyday goings on of eccentric restaraunt, you yourself have friends no more eccentric than these people I suspect.

Due to the series that won the survey last session, we have had to re-arrange the program somewhat. Too many of these series are more than 1-cour in length, thus we won’t be able to finsish screening them by the end of year, though we are trying to arrange them nicely. While we will have to put off the next retro series until October, we can sneak in a single preview episode this night.

Working!!! third series

The little restaurant of Wagnaria has a very eccentric staff that, against all odds, keep the place running and the customers coming back. Amidst the scheming assistant chef, the blasé boss, the katana wielding head waitress, the androphobe and the freeloader is Takanashi Souta, a high school student lured into working here by his obsession with anything small and cute … like waitress Taneshima Popura.

It’s another day at Wagnaria, so naturally it’s another day in which live-in waitress Yamada has broken another plate. Inami continues to struggle with her fear of men, although she can actually deliver food to male customers now … without knocking them senseless. Head chef Satou continues to vent his frustration at how oblivious Todoroki is of his feelings by messing with Popura, and fellow chef Souma just messes with everyone. And although Takanashi is constantly frustrated by Yamada’s constant dish-breaking, something small seems to have cheered him up just now.

Flying Witch
