Screening on the evening of November 27th 2021

Having a good day at Kaiga Anime Festival Kaicon at the Claremont Showgrounds? Round it off with an evening at JAFWA this Saturday. Technically this month is the 31st Anniversary of JAFWA. Are you celebrating in a good way? 🙂

Have you booked interest in JAFWA’s end of year Dinner yet? We have booked for 18 people at Yuki in Willeton, for 6:30PM on Saturday 18th December. If anymore people wish to come, inform us immediately so that we can adjust the booking. Alo, if you wish to order anything spical, such as sukiyaki.

The end of the year is rapidly approaching (this being the 2nd last screening of 2021), and we wish to finish as many regular series as possible, so as not to inflict a long break before we resume in 2022. But that means we will have empty timeslots, so before the next survey (being held during the Dinner Break) helps us decide what to show, we have one last preview episode in 2021 for you to consider for next year’s program possibilities.

This week we will be holding our monthly survey to determine which items (be they regular or recent preview) in the JAFWA program that appeals to our discerning audience. Then at the end of the Dinner Break we will have our monthly Member’s Prize draw.
