Screening on the afternoon and evening of Saturday, April 23rd 2022

Delayed a couple of years due to a combination of weather and CoViD, JAFWA is once again going to try and do and extra long “Marathon” session of anime this week. We are slightly out of practice, so only the afternoon session will be non-regular program stuff. Thanks to everyone who provided suggestions. There will be a pizza run.
If this proves popular, we can try a better, more varied marathon session later.

We shall also be screening a single preview episode. This one is actually written by a former serving police office.
Regretably, there won’t be room for “Golden Kamuy” this week.
And two of our regular series will be ending this week.
