Screening on Saturday 15th May 2021

A wonderful evening was had last Saturday, and we expect another wonderful night of watching anime this week, barring the vagaries of Reality.
Any last minute changes should be found on our FaceBook page or on our webpage.
Just a reminder to come early, if permitted, as the COVID countermeasures limit the number of people we can admit.

Two more regular series join the program this week, while two finish. Then there is the preview episode to show a sample of what other anime Japn produce.
