Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 17th September, 2016


Below is the program for September 17th.
It is movie night, and you know what that means – free entry for anime cosplay!
NOTE also, that this is the nearest day to International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19th), so cosplay from the time men were scurvy, women were wenches, and the saying “cold enough to freeze the balls off of a brass monkey” originated will also be accepted.

Tonight we also bid a fond farewell to both “Flying Witch” and “Erased – the town without me”. We have previously given clues as to what will replace these regular series. But before then a couple of preview items, though time constraints mean we won’t have “Hot Springs Fairy Hakone-chan” tonight.

This will also be the last JAFWA screening before the Spring Equinox. After this our old enemy the sun will be in ascendance. After this week we shall call upon Kris in the library to bring forth the sun disactivator!

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.
