Event Afternoon followed by Screening on Saturday 25th November 2023

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 1PM to 4:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anyone want hall space for nerf gun battles? Bring your own ping-pong? Table top games? Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen. I am not certain we have access to the outdoor area, but we will try to keep you off the street.
In the past people have brought along video games and the hardware to play them, and sewing machines for cosplay creating. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.

Screening on the evening of Saturday, November 25th 2023

This is it! The end of November and the last regular JAFWA screening for 2023!
After this will be the irregular screening of December, the Summer Holiday Break (including minor things like Christmas), and JAFWA’s glorious return in January 2024.

This week, along with our regular program we will screen another preview episode, to broaden our knowledge of anime released in Japan. It will involve the Swords and Sorcery genre, where after their defeat the demon nations seek to select a new Demon King to lead them to victory over the hated humans. At the end of the night, we ran out of regular items, so we will try one of the “Golden Kamuy” OAVs, which features some of the manga that was unable to be converted for a TV episode, even in the normal after midnight timeslot.
During the Dinner Break 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.
