Screening on Saturday 15th October 2022

Screening on the evening of Saturday, October 15th 2022

First an alert that the Japanese Film Festival is upon us. Book tickets early or risk missing out

The month of October brings further changes to the program at JAFWA.
Firstly, we weren’t able to implement all the new programs we originally intended to implement. Nor did we have room for a retro series. We got too ambitious. Sorry.
Secondly, we are going to start a new regular series this week – the second season of “The Devil is a Part-Timer”. Why did they wait so long to produce this sequel???
Thirdly, our beloved series “Spy x Family” finishes this evening, with two episodes. There will be a brief hiatus before the second series appears.
Fourthly, we will have a preview item this week, based off of a series of computer games.
Fifthly, we went with “Tokyo Revengers” because it turns out that “Jujutsu Kaisen” is commercially available locally.

Devil is a Part-timer Spy x Family Legend of Mana Tokyo Revengers

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. I have recieved an order alreasy, and I will probably fulfil the 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.
