Screening on the evening of Saturday, April 16th 2022

JAFWA continues to provide Japanese cultural goodness through the medium of anime.
This week we start a new regular series, and provide 2 preview episodes. The spread of isekai is resulting in the deconstruction of the genre. Still, it won’t be as much new anime as the week after when we have an afternoon of anime.
