Screening on Saturday 12th October 2019

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday October 12th, 2019.

It looks like we have survived MadFest for another year and now we entice you with JAFWA’s little program.
This week we have finally managed to find a timeslot to preview a little series that has a certain appeal. Unfortunately, like many anime series, this one has added eye-catch to the first episode, in the form excess blood spill. Hope no-one minds too much.

Demon Slayer

On December 14th we will have our end of year marathon screening, before we take a break until January, 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, and something “Gundam”. 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. Already, a couple of expensive Attack on Titan figures have been proffered.

A reminder that JAFWA member Dale is offering to do a bulk import order of Japanese calendars, in order to reduce shipping costs. The 2020 calendars have passed their pre-order discount period, and Dale can get titles as seen here or here, possibly with more to come as the publishing companies confirm their schedules. Is anyone interested in ordering Japanese calendars via Dale?

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles. With assistance from a grant from
