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

Come one, come all! 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.

We thank David for giving us a Pizza Run last week. Would anyone want to organise a fish and chip run this week?

This week several of JAFWA‘s regular programs are coming to their final episode (“Bocchi the Rock”, second season of “Tenchi Muyou”, and the first season of “Tokyo Revengers”), meaning this week’s Monthly Survey will greatly aide in deciding what new regular series we will be starting in July we will be starting several new series (to be decided, in part, with next week’s survey).
Indeed, this week we have our Monthly Survey, where our dear JAFWAites can express their opinion on the various programs previewed and other suggested possibilities, utilising a scalar grading system.
And later, we have the monthly Member’s Prize Draw.
And believe it or not, before that we have managed to put in another preview episode this week, that of “My Love Story With Yamada-kun at Lv999” (aka “Yamada to Lv999 no Koi o Suru”), that explores the issues and conflicts between being a dedicated gamer and looking for love.
