Screening on the evening of Saturday, September 17th 2022

The month of September continues at JAFWA.
Unfortunately this is the season for farewells, as some of our regular series are finishing. “Steins;Gate” technically finished last week, but we have an epilogue. More people may shed a tear at the conclusion of “Deaimon”. And hopefully not too many tears with “Demon Slayer”.

All this and we fit in a couple of preview episodes.

Japanese Calendars

It is that time of year again – when Japanese calendars for 2023 go on pre-order. If I (the JAFWA MC) get enough interest, I will probably order from here. It is very early yet, so only a small number of calendars have been listed so far. The link I gave pointed to only Anime calendars, but the left menu shows other categories if you are interested.
This site may be slightly more up-to-date in titles being listed.

The Australian dollar is not buying much these days, but if we bundle our orders together, we should be able to get cheaper shipping rates. And if we order very soon, we may get pre-order discounts (eg another site with rather expensive postage rates).

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.

if you too would like to help JAFWA, and get rid of your unwanted recyclable containers, then please take them to Containers for Change, and quote JAFWA’s account number – C10505693.
