Screening on Saturday 27th January 2018


Welcome Back! Below is the program for the evening of Saturday January 27th, 2018.

Apologies for not having access to the Hall last week, it was due to factors beyond our control. But anime at JAFWA returns this week, and since “Mary and the Witch’s Flower” was out in cinemas last week we hope you didn’t suffer too much.

Mary and the Witch's Flower

If you would like to get involved a bit more, be aware that JAFWA is looking for some volunteers to help out at a couple of functions.
Firstly, we are finalising plans to run a ‘cool room’ at MadFest on the first week of March, and we are looking for a couple of volunteers to do a half-day shift to help run it.
Secondly, JAFWA is planning on doing a Bunnings Sausage Sizzle on May 5th for fundraising purposes. Does anyone wish to help cook sausages in a bun, and even < shock/horror > help serve the general public < / shock/horror >?
Please contact President Drew at the next JAFWA screening if you are interested in either of these endeavours.

With no other choice, Yoshino accepts the offer and travels to Manoyama only to find out that she was hired based on a case of mistaken identity and that her contract term is for one year instead of the one day, as she had initially thought.
