Screening on Saturday 22nd May 2021

May has turned out to be a wonderful month for watching anime at JAFWA. The shows, the people, even the Door Prizes just seem so much more special. We hope to see you all this week, after Tokyo Alley 9 – Travel which will be happening a few blocks away.
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, generous as that limit is.

Two and a half more regular series join the program this week. And there will be another preview episode to show a sample of what other creative and weird anime Japan produces.
