No Screening this Saturday, 3rd June 2023

No JAFWA until Saturday 10th June 2023!

Yes, JAFWA is taking its regular break from Screening this Saturday. We wish to be refreshed when we return in June proper.

Though if you attend the Hall this Saturday from Midday, you are likely to encounter the local Doctor Who club.

Don’t forget that in July it will be time for the AGM and JAFWA elections. Isn’t it time you stepped up and participated? Nomination open in June – plan your election platform.

Dale’s Suggestive Remarks

It is a pleasant surprise to discover that we have another entry in our suggestion box, from Saturday 27th of May.
The Suggestion is anonymous, and the hand-writing is neater than mine:

  • Sousou no Frieren

I have been delightedly reading the volumes of this manga in the JAFWA library (where it is known as “Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End”), and am heartened by the news that an anime adaption has been made. I will be promoting this anime to the JAFWA committee for it to be included as one of JAFWA’s preview episodes, once it comes out in the last quarter of this year.
There is so much new anime coming out from Japan, even if you discard all the anime series that are “not great”, there is still usually more series than JAFWA has available preview slots. Still, after reading the manga, I expect the anime adaption of “Frieren” should make the cut. Stay tuned!

For those of you who have not been reading the manga from the JAFWA library, “Frieren” harks back to old-school DnD campaigns, where a hero’s party goes on a quest to defeat a great evil and save the world. The story of Frieren starts years after the success of the Hero’s party, and 4 compatriots went their own way – the Human warrior, the Human cleric, the Dwarf and the Elf wizard. Frieren, the near immortal Elf wizard finds herself curious about the ideals espoused bu her short-lived companions, and with renewed interest goes back into the world outside the elf woods and learns the joys of interacting with people she meets on her journey.
