Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 24th September, 2016

Event Afternoon before JAFWA screening

JAFWA has the hall from 12:30PM to 4:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen. Can you talk Sally and Leanne into bringing sewing machines? Maybe some table tennis, freestyle?

These are just a couple of suggestion. What do you want to do? Just so long as it legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.


Below is the program for September 24th, 2016.
The Equinox has come and gone, or perhaps I should say the Equisol, for now our old enemy the sun gains ascendancy. Soon we shall call upon Kris in the library to bring forth the sun disactivator! Now if only the nights were less chilly.

Three new regular series start this week, as voted in by our dear JAFWAite attendees. What will you vote for in the next survey?
And “Hot Springs Hakone-chan” is back for those who missed her last week.

Have you booked a table yet for the JAFWA swap-meet?

There may be eccentric nobility here as well, but there are also friends, and at least she can do her job.

Early morning is a fine time to be out in the woods collecting ingredients for your medicines, as long as you don’t lose track if time and aren’t late opening the shop. But on this day Shirayuki has bigger problems than being late for work; Prince Raj, the ruler of her town, desires a fair maiden to claim as his own. And his informants have named Shirayuki as the fairest, and thanks to her red hair the rarest, of maidens in all of Tanbarun.

Ore Monogatari! (My Love Story!)

Takeo Gouda is tall. No, Takeo Gouda is huge. He’s a high-schooler in a giant’s body. That’s been great for all the school sporting clubs he was part of, but less useful in his attempts to find love. But the real problem there is his handsome best friend Makoto Sunakawa, who ends up getting confessions from everyone Takeo likes. In fact it happens so often Takeo now expects it. And then one day, quite by accident, Takeo meets Rinko Yamato …

Tonight’s Episodes:My Story

It is the day of Takeo’s junior high graduation, and there are tears and emotions aplenty. The remaining members of his judo club are there to see him off, but Takeo rushes his goodbyes and takes off. There’s someone else at school he wants to see before he leaves. He has been working with Satou of the Student Council for some time now, and today he is finally going to tell her how he feels … or at least he was until he found Satou confessing to his best friend Makoto.

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar (Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash)

Haruhiro awoke in this strange land with no memory of where he had come from or how he had got here. He and his companions were given little choice; serve in the militia defending the region from the various monsters or starve, and so they struggle to make a living as soldiers. There is nothing easy about this life and making ends meet is a challenge for six people who, it seems, had never held weapons before. Teamwork may be the only thing that can keep them alive, but for that they actually need to function as a team.

Haruhiro and friends, including Mary, are now sufficiently skilled and practised that they think they can now take on the goblin headquarters and get revenge for Manato’s death. Promise each other that you will all return alive.

One Punch Man

Saitama is a superhero, a man of such incredibly refined fighting prowess he can defeat any opponent with a single punch.

After an invasion of Tokyo from an alternate universe, Youji’s unit is sent through the gateway to this alternate dimension to push back the invaders, taking him away from his beloved anime and manga. But maybe this won’t be all bad … because this parallel universe is straight out of a fantasy manga.

Tonight’s Episodes:The Imperial Capital Quake

Itami and the third recon squad work to assist Princess Pina with the aftermath of, what for jaded Japanese is, the medium level earthquake. But it leads to an official meeting between the Japanese and the Emperor, and a very, very angry Itami rescuing a damsel in distress.

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Re: Life in a Different World from Zero)

Being teleported to a fantasy world means you’re the chosen one, right?

But how can a mere high school student hope to challenge the monstrous and magical forces of this world? After all he only gets one shot at this, right?
