Screening on the evening of Saturday, August 20th 2022

August continues here at JAFWA. Your duly elected (by default) committee has tried to get two preview items into the program this week. One is a gorgeous work of art, if we can get the timing right. Otherwise we will go with a Japanese remake of a US CGI show. The other is a popular anime from last year, derived from a popular manga, that probably deserves to see the light of night at JAFWA.

Girl From the Other Side RWBY: Ice Queendom Jujutsu Kaisen

PS the more common martial art is spelled “jiujutsu”, the “jiu” can be translated as “gentle, soft, supple, flexible, pliable, or yielding”, and “jutsu” can be translated as “art or technique”.

Cash for Containers

As people may have noticed, JAFWA collects the recyclable containers (cans and bottles) that are disposed of by our attendees. It helps in a small way.
