Screening on the evening of Saturday, February 26th 2022

We come to the end of February, with some good news and bad new to direstly related to JAFWA‘s anime screening. The good news is that WA’s hard borders will be falling in March, and the bad news is that the JAFWA canteen is finally rising prices in March after many years. Do these balance out? Come along to JAFWA and mull this over as you embrace the language and culture of Japan through the medium of anime.
This week we will also have a preview episode set in a fantasy world, and start our new regular item set durin the Japanese gold rush.

Remember that this week we have 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, both the regular items and recent preview items.
