Screening on Saturday 19th October 2019

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday October 19th, 2019.

Spring is with us, and we are wondering if we need to take action against our old enemy, The Sun. ie block the skylight.
This week we will screen a couple of preview items to display what other anime Japan is producing this season. One is slice of life Japanese High-School anime that will appeal to gaming nerds, and the other is a remake of a rather violent samurai series, which will replace “Dororo” this week only – find out how they escape the sharks next week.

Houkage Saikoro Club Blade of the Immortal

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 else interested in ordering Japanese calendars via Dale?

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