Screening on the evening of October 16th 2021

Welcome to another wonderful week of JAFWA welcomes you to the month of October. Time is passing quickly, and we will need to know how many to book our end of year Dinner for soon.
Also, non-JAFWA directly related, tickest are selling fast for the Japanese Film Festival. Don’t miss out.

This week we are showing 3 preview episodes to overwhelm you (though one is from well before the latest anime season), as the end of the JAFWA is rapidly approaching, and there is so much anime titles in Japan that we hope to entice you with, and not enough JAFWA sessions left to do it in.

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 changed the bookings for August for this trial, now completed. – Resolution 19 to 2 that we should have 1 hour earlier starting next May through to August.
  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.

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.

JAFWA member Roy has submitted an interesting design for the logo which is under review. Any other budding artists at JAFWA who want to gives it a try?
