Screening on Saturday 12th February 2022

Screening on the evening of Saturday, February 12th 2022

JAFWA returns for February, with two new regular items starting this week – The continuation of the Slice-of-(Country)-Life anime “Non Non Biyori”. Plus the more hectic “Uramichi-Oniisan” set in a TV studio.
Not to mention a preview episode with a hint of spooky fear, as we learn to deal with seeing invisible monsters with “Mieruko-san” (that is the pronouciation, in Japanese the spelling reads “The girl who is able to see”).

Non Non Biyori Repeat Uramichi-Oniisan Mieruko-chan

NOTE We are now required by City of South Perth to check our attendees’ Vaccine status.

In addition to our regular program. We also screen various things during the Dinner Break. Like last month 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?

The magnificent movie “Belle” (aka “The Dragon and the Freckled Princess”) is still at the cinemas for a little bit.
There is also the anime movie “Sing a bit of Harmony“, to which JAFWA has received 5 double passes, that we hope to give away 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.
