Screening on the evening of Saturday, July 29th 2023

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

As July comes to an end, 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.

Before the survey during the Dinner Break, we have 3 items in the program:

  1. As per usual, we can’t be entirely certain we will 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.
  2. This will be the last episode of “Dr Stone” for a while, as the rest of season 3 isn’t expected until October.
  3. We will have a preview episode before the Dinner Break, displacing “Ningen Fushin” this week. A domestic drama involving a cat.

And we continue on with the other wonderful anime we have in our program. Including the beginning the regular screening of the second season of the TV series “the Ancient Magus Bride”, The final episodes of the first season of “Jujutsu Kaisen”, and the return of “In/Spectre” that took a break for a preview item last week.

Dr Stone The Masterful Cat is Depressed Ancient Magus Bride Jujutsu Kaisen

A reminder of our current issue – 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).

Expected program for the evening of Saturday July 29th, 2023.
