Screening on Saturday 21st October 2023

Screening on the evening of Saturday, October 21st 2023

A reminder that JAFWA has returned to operating in Normal hours! Program starts at 5:15PM!

Even with the later start last week, our old enemy the Sun made things difficult. This week we shall erect the Sun Disactivator as our valiant final line of defense against our thermonuclear enemy!
I prefer to think of it that the our quality is determined but the strength of our enemy.

October means a new anime season in Japan, which we tasted last week when our mystery preview item turned out to be “Undead Unluck”.
This week we will screen another couple of preview episodes to broaden our knowledge of anime released in Japan. The first is a nice gentle swords and sorcery story of what happens after adventurers save the world. The second just before the Late Break will be more fiery!
And don’t forget that two of our beloved series have their season finale this week – “The Devil is a Part-time” and “Ningen Fushin”.

Devil is a Part-Timer Ningen Fushin Frieren megumi no Daigo

Don’t forget that the Perth leg of the Japanese Film Festival starts this week.
