Screening on the evening of Saturday, June 17th 2023

JAFWA operating in Winter hours! Program starts at 4:15PM!

Hooray, Hooray, Hooray!
Nominations have opened for the upcoming JAFWA elections. Bring forth your vision of JAFWA and get people to vote for you. We (the current committee) just need a written nomination form indicating your intention to nominate yourself, along with your membership number.

In addition to a tasty helping of anime this week, it looks like we are also going to have a Pizza Run!
Former committee member David Fisher has acquired a voucher for reduced-price pizza, and is intending to share with his fellow JAFWAites, though he can only accept cash only.
For all I know, he may be nominating for the election and trying to buy your vote with easy to afford Pizza. Or not. But who can ignore pizza?

Several of JAFWA‘s regular programs are coming to their final episode (for instance “Do It Yourself” ends this week), meaning in July we will be starting several new series (to be decided, in part, with next week’s survey).
However, let us not wait that long. This week we jump July and start regularly screening the third season of “Demon Slayer” Yay!
And to stop us being too complacent, we shake up our anime program this week with a preview episode of “Jigokuraku” (aka “Hell’s Paradise”), as condemned criminals, accompanied by their bespoke executioners, travel to a lethally dangerous isle in search of the elixir of life for the shogun.
