Screening on Saturday 15th April 2023

Screening on the evening of Saturday, April 15th 2023

Hopefully we have all survived last week’s chocolate overdose and will be attending JAFWA craving anime, even if you have to leave SwanCon 2023 early. And some of us have gone to the cinemas to embrace Makoto Shinkai’s new anime movie Suzume.
JAFWA is currently still operating on normal, Summer hours. But as a certain franchise would have us know “Winter is Coming”, and in May JAFWA will begin operating one hour earlier. This has been your temporal dislocation early warning.

This week we continue our regular series of anime goodness, though we farewell “Spy x Family” (while eagerly awaiting season 2) and farewell “Summertime Render”. All this and we preview another anime fresh from Japan.


It may be of interest to our members, but Luna Leederville cinemas has introduced Monday Double Features, which includes a couple of Mondays with anime. (Monday April 17 is “Howl’s Moving Castle” and “Princess Mononoke”, June 12 is “Akira” and “Demon Slayer: Mugen Train”)

The next fundraising for JAFWA at Cannington Bunnings sausage sizzle is scheduled for Saturday May 6th, and we would appreciate a volunteer or 3 to help out.
