Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 29th August 2020

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 1PM to 4:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen. I am not certain we have access to the outdoor area, but we will try to keep you off the street.
In the past people have brought along nerf guns, video games and the hardware to play them, and sewing machines for cosplay creating. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.


This final weekend in August, the last one before the Bureau of Meterology says it is Spring, JAFWA warms you heart and soul as the screenings continue.

As per usual during the last screening in the month, two rather interesting things happen. Thye first is our monthly survey, as we attempt to determine what you, our dear JAFWAite audience members like seeing in our program, by means of an ordinal scaling method.
The second thing is that it will be a our monthly member’s prize draw. Each week in August that our JAFWA members have attended, gets them 1 chance in the prize draw. Have you been atending JAFWA enough?

We will even include a preview episode of some of the other anime produced in Japan, for your consideration.
JAFWA is also hoping to show the first of the 3 “Psycho Pass: Sinners of the System” movies, though we are having some technical difficulties, and may not be able to provide it this week.

Houkago Teibo Nisshi Sinners of the System

As a side note, quite a few people seem to think 2020 is not a very good year. Be aware that we are approaching the new calendar season, and a few Japanese calendars have been pre-listed already, such as here and here. Do you want to be cheered up by 2021?

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of Corona, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
Help would be welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19. Set Up begins ~4:45pm, while the Screening should begin at 5:15pm, or later should the set-up not yet be complete. Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. And we need to wipe the chairs down before they are stacked away.
