No Screening this Saturday, 2nd September 2023

No JAFWA until Saturday 9th September 2023!

JAFWA is taking its regular break from Screening this Saturday. We wish to be refreshed when we return in September proper.
However, if you need some fannish activity this coming weekend, there is the Evolve pop culture festival at the Cannington Showgrounds, behind Bunnings.
I think that “The First Slam Dunk” anime movie can still be found in cinemas.

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

When JAFWA returns on the 9th we will be previewing an episode from the anime adaption of a manga series I am thinking is very slow and perplexing, yet I keep reading the next volume feeling that something brilliant is about to unfold.
You may also notice that we have re-arranged the program slightly – our retro series “City Hunter” from before far too many things we take for granted these days, and which was a fan favourite thirty years ago has not aged well, in that the protagonist engaged in behaviour that is intolerable these days, rather than merely unacceptable as in the late 80s.

With the Equinox rapidly approaching and Sol becoming ascendant, September will be the last month we operate in Winter Hours, as last week showed, we need to bring out the Sun disactivator.
