Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 26th March 2022

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 12:30PM to 4:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen. I am not certain we have access to the outdoor area, but we will try to keep you off the street.
In the past people have brought along video games and the hardware to play them, and sewing machines for cosplay creating. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.

Screening on the evening of Saturday, March 26th 2022

We have reached the end of the month of March already. So you know what that means – the monthly JAFWA member prize.
Also, we will have our member survey, where you tell us what you enjoy on the JAFWA program by ranking regular items and recent preview items.
But that is not all! We have a preview episode before the Dinner Break, that will hopefully not be a training montage for your inner Mad Scientist.
But last, and by no means least, we are going to screen a full length theatrical anime movie. It has been a while since JAFWA has done this, so we will start off slow with an old classic “Night on the Galactic Railroad”, adapted from the award winning novel by Kenji Miyazawa. (In May, we are looking at something more modern)
