Event Afternoon followed by Screening on Saturday 30th March 2024

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, March 30th 2024, after the Event Afternoon

Yes, it is the end of the marvelous month of March, after an under-announced Event Afternoon (Lindsay’s sponsored night just loomed too anticipated).
As such during the Dinner Break we will be having our Monthly Survey, where our dear JAFWAites can express their opinion on the ranking of 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 for the Winner to choose from.

Your normal JAFWA program returns this week, after an enjoyable birthday bash last week. They just don’t make anime that way any more (though the background music seems to have improved).
Though this week we have the last regular episodes of “Spy x Family” for the foreseeable future. You will have to wait until the “Spy x Family” movie “Code White” comes to cinemas starting on April 18.

Spy x Family

If you don’t want to sponsor an entire night like Lindsay did, there is the other scheme for our signed up members. On the night nearest your birthday, you can nominate something to play during the Dinner Break (limited to 30 minutes max). You may have to help us source this material, so plan in advance please.
We hope everybody enjoyed Greg’s choice of “HoiHoi-san” in February.

Expected program for the evening of Saturday March 30th, 2024.

Hiding her skills and knowledge, Maomao hopes to just glide by, earning as little as possible for her kidnappers during her term of service, but such is not to be: when royal infants begin dying, Maomao can’t resist letting people know the cause. This catches the eye of the far-too-handsome Jinshi, who elevates Maomao from laundry maid to poison taster to the Emperor’s favourite concubine. So much for flying under the radar…
