Screening on Saturday 23rd June 2018


Please be advised that on the 21st of July 2018 the Japanese Animation Fans of Western Australia will be holding it’s 2018 Annual General Meeting.

The meeting will be held at the Collins Street Centre in South Perth from 3:00pm onwards. The regular screening will commence afterwards, and during the dinner break the committee election will be held.

We request that all current members attend to meet quorum requirements and to have your voices heard!

If you have any matters you would like to have raised at the meeting, please email them through to
Or leave your query or statement at the front desk via the suggestion box.

The JAFWA committee has a few constitutional amendments to make that requires the approval and voting by the JAFWA membership.

We look forward to seeing you there!


Below is the program for the evening of Saturday June 23rd, 2018.

While this may be the weekend of SupaNova, do recall that they close the doors at 6PM. For after that, there is JAFWA!
We are starting a new regular series this week, where the characters get to visit Fremantle. Let us find out how close to reality they get it. And since there is far more anime being produced in Japan than we can ever hope to screen at JAFWA, we try to make up for that by occasionally screening a sample episode from some anime that seems worthy. Believe it or not, we have two such sample episodes this week!

This is official notification that we are now taking nominations for the upcoming JAFWA committee elections, to be held during the Dinner Break of July 21, after the AGM. Nominations are open to all members paid up for at least the last 3 months, and permanent residents of WA. Sally has already nominated.
Also, we are asking for any issues members want raised at the AGM. Basically this is a notice of inclusion for matters for the official agenda, as per the constitution. So far we have a request to make a constitutional change to the definition of one of the classes of membership.
