Screening on Saturday 25th August 2018


Below is the program for the evening of Saturday August 25th, 2018.

This week we screen the episode of “A Place Further than the Universe” / “Sora Yorimo Tooi Basho” where our 4 heroines venture forth to the strange and exotic foreign port of Fremantle in Western Australia, in their quest to reach Antarctica.

And we continie to say good bye to our regular series. Last week both “Omae wa Mada Gunma wo Shiranai” and “Alice to Zouroku” came to their conclusions. This week we conclude “Sakura Quest” and “Ancient Magus Bride”, and several other of our regular series are only 4 or 5 episodes from the end.
Thus it is rather vital that people fill in this week’s survey form so that we, the JAFWA committee, can get a good idea as to what shows should become regular items in the following months. Though I am hearing that more than a few people intend to vote for the next season of “Attack on Titan”.

We will try and sneak in one last preview episode before the Dinner Break survey. We haven’t had a sports anime on for a while, and in this one we suspect that the animators were fascinated by sweat.
