Screening on Saturday 11th August 2018


Below is the program for the evening of Saturday August 11th, 2018.

This week has the anniversaries and the greatest instantaneous devastation ever meted out by humans upon humans. Never forget, that in 1945 nuclear weapons were first used in war, on August 6 above Hiroshima, and on August 9 above Nagasaki. Join me in wishing that nuclear weapons will never be used in war ever again.

During last month’s survey, it was seen that a couple of people wrote in “Made in Abyss”, that wonderful little show we screened between October last yeat and March this year, where a pre-pubescent dungeon delver dragged along an amnesiac cyborg to look for her missing mother. The series did beg a sequl to see what happens next. According to Wikipedia, two compilation films, titled Made in Abyss: Tabidachi no Yoake (“Journey’s Dawn”) and Made in Abyss: Hourou Suru Tasogare (“Wandering Twilight”), will be released in January 4, 2019 and January 18, 2019, respectively. A sequel was announced at an event in November 2017.
But that is not soon enough!

While we don’t have any more “Made in Abyss” at the moment, we will preview this week “Cells at Work!” which follows the adventures and battles of various anthropomorphic blood cells as they go about their duties supporting and defending the body corporate/corporeal. Due to the nature of the show, it is technically a very bloody episode 😉
Makes me kind of wish we had more volumes of the manga in the JAFWA library.
