Screening on the evening of Saturday, August 13th 2022

Our first screening in the month of August, know that in Japanese the eighth month is called hachigatsu. Though historically (and sometimes poetically) it was known as Hazuki (“Month of Leaves”). In old Japanese, the month was called Haochizuki (“Month of Falling Leaves”).

We bow our heads in the remembrance of the anniversary of the Atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The celebration of International Patlabor Day is scheduled for August 10th.
Though some of us may be looking forward to O-bon festivities.

But otherwise the month of August starts here at JAFWA! To celebrate the start of the month, we start a new regular series, the sequel to the popular “Rising of the Shield Hero”. And we will have a surprise Preview item. Come and warm your soul with the cultural goodness that is anime.
