Screening on Saturday 11th September 2021

Screening on the evening of September 11th 2021

After the grand experiment of starting (and ending) an hour earlier in August, this month we return to holding JAFWA sessions starting at 5:15PM. Mainly due to our old enemy the sun, trying to once more take ascendency in the sky.

However, we will be organising a formal poll of your ideas regarding our August experiment, and the possibility of a permanent change to our Winter operating hours.

Recently, anime sessions have been released in 1-cour (ie a Season of 12~13 weekly episodes) blocks, where a series that would have 24 episodes across two Seasons (ie 2 cour) is instead is released in two half series. And so it is with the second season of “That Time I Was Re-incarnated as a Slime”.
This week we hit the midpoint (ie end of part 1) of the second series, so after tonight we will take a hiatus for a while before considering showing part2 of the second season of “That Time I Was Re-incarnated as a Slime”. Meaning next week we get to see a new regular series, so stay tuned.

This week we will be starting a new regular series, and the third series of “Fruits Basket” was chosen from the monthly survey rankings. We will also have two preview episodes, the intriguing “Sonny Boy”, and the “Cells at Work: Code Black”, set in an unhealthy body with unhealthy habits.

Annual General Meeting resolutions

Resolutions that occurred during the AGM on July 17th include:

  1. Experiment with earlier hours during the coldest part of Winter. We have changed the bookings for August for this trial.
  2. Have a celebratory Dinner for the JAFWA committee members and general members, to be held on the evening of Saturday December 18th 2021, in lieu of a screening.
  3. New mascot design – will try asking at the next Artist’s Alley.
  4. Tell people they can sponsor an anime night.
  5. Obtain new mascot design.

We will be attempting to implement these as soon as practical.

Currently we are looking for suggestions for a location for the dinner, and we are taking expressions of interest for attendees.
We will need to make the booking by the end of October, so places and attendance by then.
