Screening on the evening of Saturday, November 12th 2022

The month of November dawns, and we once again praise our Librarian Kris and his Sun Disactivator. Technically JAFWA is starting a new regular series this week, but strictly speaking it is the continuation of the wonderful “Golden Kamuy” as our intrepid gold seekers invade Imperial Russia.
And we will sneak in a preview episode aimed at the DIY enthusiasts, called “Do It Yourself”.

And we have scored some passes to see “One Piece: Red” at the cinemas. Can anyone say “Door Prizes”?

Do It Yourself Golden Kamuy
