Screening on Saturday 14th March 2020

Welcome to the wonderful month of March, as the JAFWA screenings resume.
While the Bureau of Meteorology might say Autumn has already started, most countries (Japan included) officially state that the Seasons change on the Equinoxes/Solstices. With human induced climate change becoming ever more obvious, perhaps the Bureau of Meteorology should consider updating their dating scheme.

Hope you all enjoyed the Perth Japan Festival last Saturday!

After a family tragedy turns her life upside down, plucky high schooler Tohru Honda takes matters into her own hands and moves out into a tent. Unfortunately for her, she pitches her new home on private land belonging to the mysterious Sohma clan, and it isn’t long before the owners discover her secret.

As punishment, Tohru hugs the boy, which turns him into a sheep.
