probable Screening on Saturday 8th May 2021

The pandemic lockdown prevented us from screening last time, with much wailing and gnashing of teeth for those hoping for a marathon length anime binge (not to mention the pizza and sushi). We are being optimistic and planning to screen a normal program this week. Always remember that another lockdown may be called, so keep on eye-on FB or our webpage for confirmation that JAFWA is still permitted to screen.
Just a reminder to come early, if permitted, as the COVID countermeasures limit the number of people we can admit.

This week we finish the series we meant to finish in April, therefore there is only room to start four new regular series this week.
