Screening on Saturday 26th September 2020

Hopefully we won’t have another blowy weather as we did last week on International Talk Like A Pirate Day, which caused us to shiver our timbers a little. Though it did add the correct atmospherics at one point, during the Eizouken episode.
So rejoice that the screenings continue here at JAFWA.

As we await the upcoming anime season starting in October, we preview another episode suggested by one of our dear JAFWAites, from the monthly Survey. Which should remond us that this month’s Survey (and Monthly Member’s Prize draw) is also happening this week. Don’t miss it!
And we also have the second instalment of the Psycho-Pass movie trilogy.

New Game Psycho Pass Sinners of the System 2

JAFWA’s 30th anniversary is quickly approaching, and a reminder that we still have a limited number of tickets for a Japanese Tea Ceremony on the day. Buy your ticket early! President Drew will be selling them this week.

As a side note, quite a few people seem to think 2020 is not a very good year. Be aware that we have entered the new calendar season, and some Japanese calendars have been listed already, such as here and here. I have already taken an order. Do you also 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.
