Screening on Saturday 29th January 2022

Screening on the evening of Saturday, January 29th 2022

JAFWA‘ has reached the end of the first month of 2022. You know what that means – it is both our Member’s Prize Draw, and the night we have our survey where we receive feedback from our dear JAFWAites as to what you appreciate in our program, bothe regular items and recent preview items.

This week we say farewell to a couple of regular series, meaning that in February we will be starting to new regular series. To help take the sting off the farewell, just before the Dinner Break we will have a preview episode.

Fruits Basket Shadows House Sakugan

In addition to our regular program. We also screen various things during the Dinner Break. Like a couple of weeks when we screened various anime music videos, one of our attendees asked about this strange “Bubblegum Crisis” anime that came with its own music.
The scary thing is that he could not have been borns when BGC was made. Screening BGC was a staple of early JAFWA. To have someone not recoginise this cyberpunk anime classic, makes me feel old.
Does any one else want JAFWA to screen this anime gem once more? Maybe we could sneak an episode into the Dinner Break?

Excitement is justified over the new Mamoru Hosoda anime “Belle“, appearing at the cinemas this week.

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.

Covid-19 Safety Precautions

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible future waves of CoVid-19, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
