Screening on the evening of Saturday, October 8th 2022

Most importantly! JAFWA will return to our regular hours in October. Come along at 5PM!

The month of October is upon us all too soon at JAFWA. And the JAFWA program is going through changes!
Not only will we be screening the final two episodes of the 3rd season of “Log Horizon”, we have four new regular series to start screening this week. We have analysed the survey results from the last time and guide us towards the best possible program, with further series to add later this month. Be prepared for a pleasant surprise when you come to JAFWA this week.

Shadows House Legend of Galactic Heroes Made in Abyss Jujutsu Kaisen

Don’t forget that we go back to out 5:15PM start.

Japanese Calendars

It is that time of year again – when Japanese calendars for 2023 are available order. If I (the JAFWA MC) get enough interest, I will probably order from here. It is early yet, so not all of the 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 probably more than last year, but if we bundle our orders together, we should be able to get cheaper shipping rates. We have probably missed the pre-order period.

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.
