Screening on the evening of Saturday, April 22nd 2023

I don’t know what made me happier last week at JAFWA – all the new people who found us as a source to satisfy their craving foranime, or the joy of having 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 starting in May JAFWA will begin operating one hour earlier. This has been your temporal dislocation early warning.

break to work up the courage to sell stuff to people). Oddly these new regular series are all sequels to series previously screened at JAFWA.
We have exceptional high school students being de-petrified thousands of years in the future into a new Stone Age, and have managed to climb the technological ladder so that they now have a hot air balloon and a sailing ship, in the 3rd season of “Dr Stone”.
Meanwhile the hunt for stolen gold continues as our surviving veterans of the Russo-Japanese war return to the land of the Ainu in the 4th season of “Golden Kamuy”.
And we continue the adventures of impulsive Thorfinn after he left Iceland in one of the last excursions of the Vikings, became enslaved and acquired his freedom after becoming a knife wielding assassin, set in the poorly documented English history 3 generations before the Battle of Hasting, in the 2nd season of “Vinland Saga”.

All this and we preview another anime fresh from Japan.
