Screening on Saturday 11th November 2023

Screening on the evening of Saturday, November 11th 2023

After the overwhelmingness of Kai-Con 2023 last week, you do need to remember to come to JAFWA this week. So lest we forget, I welcome to November and overly-sunny weather.
A special shout out to the winners of JAFWA’s raffle prizes – Kiara’s ticket won first prize, and Holly Elms was the lucky second place winner.

This week, as we march onto the end of the year, along with our regular program we will screen another two preview episodes, to broaden our knowledge of anime released in Japan. The first is called “MF Ghost”, which appears to be the spiritual successor to “Initial D” that we screened at JAFWA so many years ago. The second preview episode will be a double length episode.

MF Ghost Crimson Ragna
We are still trying to fill the program for the final screening of 2023 in December. What do you want to see?
And could I ask you to write down your suggestions so that I don’t lose them this time. (sorry)
