Screening on Saturday 29th April, 2016

Below is the program for the evening of April 29th, 2017.

Tonight we say good bye to the regular series “Sweetness and Lightning”. It seems such a shock that JAFWA has already screened enough times this year for a full 1-cour series to have been fully screened.
During the month of May we will re-arrange the JAFWA program slightly so that “Ore Monogatari” (“My Love Story”) will occupy the vacant time slot, but in June we will have a fuzzy golden furball replacement regular series.

Tonight, however, we will have a preview item, the first episode of “Seikaisuru Kado”. This will be before the Dinner Break so that it may be included in the survey so that we can find out what you, our lovely audience enjoy. Bring extra friends to bias the survey results.
