Election Nominations

JAFWA will be holding its annual committee elections on July 21st, starting from 7PM, during the Dinner Break.

We are still accepting nominations until the end of the JAFWA session on July 14th. To nominate, you must be a signed up current JAFWA member for at least the last 3 months, resident in WA.

The JAFWA committee is 8 people with a love of anime and a desire to keep JAFWA running. Once elected, these 8 worthies decide amongst themselves whom will hold which position and duties. For years, there has been a rumour that they fight for the position of President, which goes to the loser.


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 July 14th, 2018.

We enter the second half of the year, refreshed after a bracing winter week off, eager with anticipation for next week’s AGM and elections.
We start no new regular series this month, but each week we will fit in a preview episode from the Japanese Spring anime season. This week, we take a cynical look at professional Baseball, from the point of view of a low earning player. Can he deliver the money pitch in “Gurazeni”?
