Event arvo and Screening on Saturday 27th May 2023

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 12PM to ~3:45PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anyone want hall space for nerf gun battles? Bring your own ping-pong? Table top games? Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen. I am not certain we have access to the outdoor area, but we will try to keep you off the street.
In the past people have brought along video games and the hardware to play them, and sewing machines for cosplay creating. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.

Screening on the evening of Saturday, May 27th 2023

JAFWA operating in Winter hours! Program starts at 4:15PM!
After the Event Afternoon

This week JAFWA continues our programs of regular series of anime goodness, to warm the otaku soul. This week people will be saddened/overjoyed to know we are screening the last episode of the second season of “Legend of the Galactic Heroes”. You may regain hope/despair, for there is more series of “Legend of the Galactic Heroes” that can be shown if enough interest is raised.
And we will attempt to gauge your interest this week with our monthly survey (to be held during the Dinner Break), where you can show us on via scalar measurements the popularity of the shows JAFWA that shows. And later, we have the monthly Member’s Prize Draw. Yay!
