Screening on Saturday 17th March 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday March 17th, 2018.

We have been having an interesting time watching “Made in Abyss”, but this 1-cour show comes to an end this week. But rejoice, it has been announced that a second season is in production.
We are also going to have two preview items tonight. One of them, “King’s Avatar” (Quan Zhi Gao Shou ????) is actually a Chinese attempt at doing anime, so we at JAFWA thought you might like to compare the cultural and artistic differences between the two countries’ anime.
