Screening on Saturday 18th March, 2016

Below is the program for the evening of March 18th, 2017.

Be aware that this week we have a couple of Free Passes to OzComicon in the Door Prizes.

We are asking for volunteers to help person our Bunnings sausage sizzle stand on Saturday 1st April at Cannington. Up you up for it?

Zekky? Gakky? Kiss Him, Not Me

The final episode of “Working!!” is unexpectedly double length, so we won’t have room for “Sweetness and Lightning” this week. Spooky isn’t it.
The Dinner Break will also be shortened to account for tonight’s episode of “Bubblegum Crisis”.

JAFWA attended the inaugural 2017 Madman Anime Festival Perth – a fantastic weekend of anime and manga enthusiasts, and those of us who enable such enthusiasm. We met many wonderful new friends and got to promote our club with great success. A big thanks to Nathan Kershaw from Madman for all his support and energy in arranging and supporting us. We look forward to the next Madman event in Perth!

In fact we would like to say Thank You to all the generous organisations that help support JAFWA – Madman, Tactics, Little Robot, Shumi Shop, Tokyo Underground, Comic Zone, and Quality Comics.
