Event afternoon, then Screening on Saturday 29th May 2021

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 1:00PM 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, and see if your game machine can plug into it. 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 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.

Screening evening of May 29th 2021, after the Event Afternoon

May continues to be a wonderful month for watching anime at JAFWA, even with all the inclement weather we had last week. There is just something special about watching you favourite anime, with a Hall full of fellow otaku just outside of social distancing reach.
All the new series we were intending starting this month, have premiered. We apologise so many of them are isekai and 2nd seasons of a series we have already screened, that was just how people voted in the special survey.
This being the last JAFWA session in May, do recall that we will have this week the usual end of month Survey, along with the Member’s Prize draw.

Quite a few of out members are sad at the news that Kentrou Miura has passed away suddenly, without the chance to finish his very popular manga “Berserk”.
