No screening on Saturday 22nd December 2018 – Prepare for Christmas

No Screening until Saturday January 12th, 2019

This is of annual End-of-Year rest break, where we attand various Solstice related festivities (X-mas is particularly popular) and welcome in the New Year. Worry not as JAFWA will return in 2019 (we have booked the Hall and everything).
Until then, enjoy the festivities, and try not to suffer too much from anime withdrawal. Be aware that TV may help – “My Neighbour Totoro” Tuesday 18th Dec SBS VICELAND 12:00pm to 1:35pm, and “Summer Wars” Thursday 20th Dec SBS VICELAND 12:00pm to 2:05pm.

We are still organising the program for January, based on the last survey results, but I will give a single hint at this stage – it is safe to say that one isekai program has made it into our colourful lineup. We will be continuing the regular series “Lupin III”, “Overlord”, and “Sword Art Online: Alicization”.
And the audience on Dec 15 vote strongly for us to include the old 2-part “Battle Angel Alita” anime into the program in January.

The expected program for December 8th is expected to be something like as follows:
