Screening on the evening of Saturday, January 15th 2022

Hoping you enjoyed being eased back into JAFWA after New Year’s break. From this week onwards, we intend to resume our normal 5:15PM start of screening. See you Saturday!

JAFWA’s screening this week will be at our normal start time ~5:10PM, and we will have a full program.
This will include a preview episode, because Japan keeps creating goodanime. Also the retro series people voted most for starts this week. And to finish it off, another new series starts this week. This does mean that “Fena:Pirate Princess” will be knocked out longer than most people hope for.

Tokyo 24-ku Steins; Gate To Your Eternity

Excitement is growing over the new Mamoru Hosoda anime “Belle“, soon to appear at the cinema.

Cash for Containers

As people may have noticed, JAFWA collects the recyclable containers (cans and bottles) that are disposed of by our attendees. It helps in a small way.

if you too would like to help JAFWA, and get rid of your unwanted recyclable containers, then please take them to Containers for Change, and quote JAFWA’s account number – C10505693.
