This it!
The long announced AGM finally upon us!

Please be advised that on the 17th of July 2021, the Japanese Animation Fans of Western Australia (inc.) will be holding it’s 2021 Annual General Meeting.

The meeting will be held at the Collins Street Centre in South Perth from 3:00pm onwards. The regular screening will commence afterwards, and during the dinner break the committee election should have been held (lack of nominees).

We request that all current financial members attend to meet quorum requirements and to have your voices heard! Please arrive about 10 minutes early.

If you have any matters you would like to have raised at the meeting, please email them through to Preferably sufficiently in advance so that we can accurately prepare our response.
Currently, this is the list of submitted AGM agenda items.

  • Should the screenings go as late as they do during winter (the hall gets quite cold)?
  • Rescheduling the marathon. Is it worth it to do the marathon anymore?

Screening of July 17th 2021

Once the AGM is over, stay for the anime!

It will be the usual program, minus one regular item to allow us to preview a first episode of a new and interesting anime. A somewhat different take on a classic Japanese tale.
