Screening on the evening of Saturday, July 22nd 2023

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

Thanks to one and all who came to the JAFWA AGM last week and made it a success. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough election nominations, thus you are stuck with your current committee – Drew, Glenn, Mark, Sally, Audrey, Greg and Dale. All praise to your overlords for another year!

As you know, we had an unexpected problem with our playback computer (its motherboard died on the Tuesday previous). But most fortuitously, our members Lindsay and Elliot came to the rescue and found us a replacement machine, that worked quite successfully last week.
But now a new issue arises – what do we call our new computer? Traditionally the JAFWA computer, with its small form factor is known as “chibi“, though for official purposes that only addressed JAFWA’s first dedicated computer. The one that broke down in July 2023 since being in service from 2016, was officially “Shin-chibi“. So what do we call this even smaller form factor computer? Lindsay has suggested “micro-chibi“, while I am partial to “chibi-chibi“. Please provide worthwhile suggestion for the official name (“Chibi McChibi Chibiface”, and variants thereof, is only worth getting hurt).

Meanwhile, we hope to have the next episode of “The Devil is a Part-timer” ready for this week, as it will only be expected to screen on Japanese TV this coming Thursday.
And we continue on with the other wonderful anime we have in our program. Though this week will be the final episode of “the Ancient Magus Bride” OAV, but then the next week we go onto the TV series.
Be aware that this week we will be adding two preview episode to the program, the first is an isekai show that got the loudest/excited response when we showed various promo videos a few weeks ago, and the other is more of a supernatural mystery story.
