Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 21st April 2018

Event Afternoon

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, and ethical. Hence selling/auctioning off unwanted relatives will fail to tick all these boxes.
Also we should probably avoid scuffing the floor of the Hall.


Below is the program for the evening of Saturday April 21st, 2018.

The new season of anime has started in Japan, and we have found a couple of sample episodes of 2018 anime series that we suspect you will appreciate. Our first preview episode we thought topical was “to the ends of the Earth”, dues to the fact that around about episode #8 our intrepid heroines travel to the foreign city of Fremantle in order to board their ice-breaker.

Sora Yori mo Toi Basho Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody Fist of the Blue Sky

Due to possible licensing issues, we have had to shelve our plans to screen the first episode of “Violet Evergarden” as a preview episode. Instead, we will re-introduce viewers to the storyline of the manliest of men, albeit it an earlier generation, with pulse-pounding, exploding-head martial arts action.
