Screening on Saturday 21st September 2019

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday September 21st, 2019.

This week should be the Spring Equinox, a night-time of equal length to day-time, as daylight waxes and night darkness wanes. Why not watch good anime this night, the official first day of Spring? In order to heighten the joy, your beloved committee has found two preview episodes for this week, out of the large number of anime titles that Japan produces each Season.
As per the audience preference, we are going to split up the two episodes of “Isekai Quartet”, to spread the joy.

Fire Force B.E.M.

On December 14th we will have our end of year marathon screening, and your Suggestions are welcome. The JAFWA committee has already scheduled room for “Akira”, and we have received a request for the movie “Millenium Actress”, as well as the “Girls und Panzer” movie. Any other requests/suggestions?
Be aware, we also intend to run an auction on behalf of our members. Tell us what you want us to auction of yours, preferably well in advance, so we can schedule enough time into the program, as well as inform people so that they can bring plenty of money to bid.
