Below is the program for the evening of Saturday September 23rd, 2017.

Hold fast! Even though our old enemy the sun has gained ascendancy in the duel of day and night, know that JAFWA is still here to satisfy your anime watching needs.
We have a timeslot opening up in October, so we are previewing the first episode of a couple of items for your consideration. As always, Japan produces for more anime than JAFWA could ever hope to screen, thus as part of JAFWA’s mission to promote the culture of Japan as expressed through anime we try and show first episodes of some of the more interesting examples of anime.

Shoukoku no Altair WorldEnd

The Japanese calendar season is upon us, and as usual the MC Dale is doing bulk orders of 2018 calendars. There is still a discount for pre-ordering the calendars. Anybody wishing to order Japanese anime 2018 Calendars this year? Though Dale says he can order any calendar from that site if you wish to expand your horizons beyond anime.
