Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 30th September 2017

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 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. I am not certain we have access to the outdoor area, but we will try to keep you off the street.
In the past people have brought along video games and the hardware to play them, and sewing machines for cosplay creating. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.


Below is the program for the evening of Saturday September 30th, 2017.

We say farewell to a couple of our regular series this week – “Atom: The Beginning” and “Poco’s Udon World”. Though we will preview a sporting anime this week – “Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun”, which roughly translates as “Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun”.
It is that time of month when we survey you, our faithful JAFWAites, to find out what you like about our program. It will help us decide what to fill in the empty timelsots in October.
