Event Afternoon followed by Screening on Saturday 26th August 2023

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 1PM to 3:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anyone want hall space for nerf gun battles? Bring your own ping-pong? Table top games? Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen. I am not certain we have access to the outdoor area, but we will try to keep you off the street.
In the past people have brought along video games and the hardware to play them, and sewing machines for cosplay creating. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.

Sally has advised that she is going to try cooking hamburgers. Willing (or not) volunteers required for taste testing.

August greetings for those of you coming to see us on the last week of August.
And I think we all know what that means – 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.

While “City Hunter” does feature a charcater with excessive libido and no shame from before the #MeToo generation, it does appear that it was only the first episode that contained excessive inappropriate material.
This week’s episode of “Golden Kamuy” will be the last one shown, until the next series is animated. For those of use who have read ahead with the managa in the JAFWA library, we do so want the battle of Sapporo Beer factory to be animated.

This week will also preview an episode of anime from Japan from a few years back – a slice of life with outdoors camping.

Yuru Camping Golden kamuy
