Screening on the evening of Saturday, January 8th 2022

Akemeshite Omedetou Gozaimasu!

JAFWA intends to return after the New Year’s break, on January 8th, 2022, though at a later start time ~6:00PM for that week only, because the Doctor Who club booked the afternoon before we reserved the evening.

Welcome to 2022. We didn’t manage to finish all of our regular series from 2021, so we will have a few familiar programs this session. And because our dear JAFWAites voted for next season of a couple of series, some of our starting series will also be familiar. Due to this week’s shortened timeframe, not all our new series start tonight, there will be a couple for next week. And the joy of preview episodes is not to be had this week either.
