Screening on Saturday 29th July 2017


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

This week we intend to survey our JAFWAites, during the Dinner Break, to determine what’s hot and what’s not (apart from the weather). So remember all the preview items we have shown in the last couple of months, and tell us what you want to see in the JAFWA program!
We will show a one-off item this week, just after the Late Break.
Our new retro series “Gunsmith Cats” starts this week, last screened at JAFWA in April 1997. Many thanks to Greg McLeod for reminding us of this JAFWA heritage.

We say goodbye to the second season of “Attack on Titan” tonight. There is a promise (but can we believe it?) that the third season will be out in 2018. At any rate, we have a bequest for the membership prize this week – ab Attack on Titan cosplay outfit. Is your membership up to date?
