Screening on Saturday 14th October 2023

Screening on the evening of Saturday, October 14th 2023

This week JAFWA returns operating in Normal hours! Program starts at 5:15PM!

October is upon us already, as we move to the cooler evening hours. We put behind us the disappointment of the cancelled Bunnings Sausage Sizzle, and march into a healthier, anime-filled future.
Bear with us, as we are in the process of re-arranging the program due to the Bean Poll on the fate of our retro series “City Hunter”. Of the people who voted:

  1. 9 votes – Do away with “City Hunter” after this week, and use the emptied timeslot to show extra episodes of our regular items to try and finish by the end of the year.
  2. 6 votes – Discontinue screening “City Hunter” after this week, and find another retro slot item (probably “El Hazard”).
  3. 5 votes – Continue screening “City Hunter” after the Late Break.

This week we will screen a couple of preview episodes to broaden our knowledge of anime released in Japan. The first is desert after Dinner Break and is called “Sweet Reincarnation”, that does involve isekai and OP, as this sort of stuff is just too prevalent in Japan for us to ignore. The second Late-nght preview episode is a ***mystery item***. Come and find out if you dare!
