Screening on the evening of Saturday, July 30th 2022

July is ending, 1 more month of Winter passed, with our old enemy the Sun (Taiyo-dono) staying in the sky noticeably longer. And yet JAFWA continues to love you in its own way, with anime.

What do you get this week, as we continue to warm your soul with the cultural goodness that is anime?

  • Firstly, a preview episode about two classmates struggling to make friends.
  • Secondly, a further demonstration of love and care, as we survey our attendees as to which shows they like.
  • Thirdly, our Monthly Member’s Prize draw!
  • Fourthly, an apology for showing the wrong episode of “Demon Slayer” last week, as we show the episode we should have been shown (you guys voted me in through inaction).
  • Fifthly, we have the final episode of “To Your Eternity”, and farewell our immortal voyager Fushi. Though the second season of the anime is scheduled to start in October.

Aharen-san we Hakarenai Too Your Eternity

It’s been a year since Shiroe and his friends were trapped in Akiba due to the Catastrophe. Their forging of the Round Table has brought order and prosperity to its people.

On the election’s eve, Ein recognizes that he has the advantage, but is wary about what Shiroe is planning to do in order to reverse the situation.

In his first year of high school, making companions isn’t easy as Raidou struggles to make friends. Short, quiet Reina Aharen sits next to Raidou in class.

Then one day, when Raidou picked up the eraser that Aharen had dropped, the distance between them suddenly became uncomfortably close. From “way too distant” to “way too close,” Aharen is simply unpredictable.

Tonight’s Episode:Isn’t This Too Close?

Raido begins his first year of high school. Due to possessing a naturally unfriendly face, he struggles to fit in and tries to become friends with Reina Aharen, who sits beside him in class. He is baffled when she either ignores him or speaks too softly to be heard. Aharen becomes extremely close to Raido after he retrieves her fallen eraser. Raido asks for an explanation of her behaviour, so she reveals she has a warped sense of distance that makes it difficult to judge when she is invading someone’s personal space.
