Below is the program for the evening of Saturday March 23rd, 2019. The Equinox has passed, and night is once more ascendant, though the weather may pretend otherwise.

This week we also show a preview episode of some different anime, based on a write-in suggestion that passed the JAFWA committee’s scrutiny.
We also have a second preview item after the late break – think Sailor Moon, if militarised.
