No Screening this Saturday, 1st July 2023

No JAFWA until Saturday 8th July 2023!

The year is half over, and JAFWA is taking its regular break from Screening this Saturday. We wish to be refreshed when we return in July proper, with the Annual General Meeting and committee election coming up during our second screening. Still time to nominate for the election, or raise an issue for the AGM.

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

But for the week of the 8th, we will be starting several new regular series, which haven’t been decided yet. Stay tuned!
Thanks to everyone who filled in the survey form, but not a lot of people admitted to rating the second season of “Tokyo Revengers” very high. This disappoints your beloved MC.

Dale’s Suggestive Remarks

There was another entry in our suggestion box, from Saturday 17th of June.
However, the handwriting is cramped and the pen ink keeps running out, and with my eyesight I can’t reproduce it accurately

Basically he is saying that he has a DVD of the original “Kimba the White Lion” series, from 1965, and is nominating it for the retro time-slot.
I believe it is in Black & White, and I am not clear if it is dubbed into English or properly subbed. His main issue is that the episodes are not sequential on the DVD, but all mixed up.

I can probably deal with the mixed up order of the episodes. But if it is black & white, it is verging on being even more retro than I can deal with comfortably. Still sounds awesome though.
Thinking back on it, I may have seen some “Kimba” episodes on TV when I was a much, much, much younger. Mind you, what sticks harder in my memory is something called “Marine Boy”, and maybe something called “The Amazing Three”.
