Screening on the evening of Saturday, November 19th 2022

While many people will be enjoying [ KaiCon ] Kaiga Anime Convention 2022 on this weekend at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre,

don’t forget to stop by JAFWA in the evening for some anime screening.

The less said about the mixup in “Golden Kamuy” episodes last week, the happier the rather contrite and very apologetic MC will be. Sorry.

Golden Kamuy

A reminder that the Japanese Film Festival is upon us. Book tickets early or risk missing out
