Screening on the evening of Saturday, October 28th 2023

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

Welcome to the end of October (after the Japanese Film Festival), when we will be having 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, with so much good stuff to choose from for the Winner.

This week we will screen another preview episode, to broaden our knowledge of anime released in Japan. This will be an ancient Chinese palace themed mystery / romance.
Though perhaps more people will also be approving that we will be starting to regularly show new episode from the latest season of “Dr Stone” and “Spy x Family”.
