Screening on the evening of Saturday, April 13th 2024

Welcome to the month of April, where in Japan the Sakura is blossoming and the school year begins.
Did you miss us? We missed you. Let anime otaku rejoice and meet once again at the JAFWA screening! Though just before the JAFWA Saturday I anticipate some artistically-inclined people will book their tickets to appreciate Tokyo Alley 12 – Adventure at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Your normal JAFWA program returns this week, with a new regular series to replace the beloved “Spy x Family” (though the “Spy x Family” movie “Code White” comes to cinemas starting on April 18, both subbed and dubbed). Our new series “Frieren” shows what happens after the fantasy heroes save the world, from the viewpoint of a near immortal elf mage.

The Masterful Cat is Depressed Again Today (Dekiru Neko wa Kyou mo Yuuutsu)

One day, a young woman named Saku took in a stray black cat who she later named Yukichi. However, as time went on, Yukichi grew large enough to be mistaken for a bear.

This Evening’s Episode:The Masterful Cat Has A Lot Of Worries

In the park Yukichi finds a box labelled “Please take me home”, and within is young Yume-chan , whose birthday he attended. And a kitten. What is a masterful cat to do?

The Apothecary Diaries (Kusuriya no Hitorigoto)

Apothecary Maomao was just out collecting herbs when she was kidnapped by procurers for the Imperial harem, an easy way for unscrupulous people to get money by having “relatives” go work in the Rear Palace. 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 favorite concubine. So much for flying under the radar…

Tonight’s Episode:Suicide or Murder?

Jinshi is still sulking from the shock after Maomao’s homecoming, though slowly recovering after knowing the truth from Gyokuyou, when a eunuch barged into his office reporting of Kounen, a high-ranking official, dying after a heavy drinking session during a party. Later, Guen asked Maomao to perform an autopsy on the body of a servant woman found drowned in the palace moat, but refused because it is taboo for her as an apothecary.

Ancient Magus Bride season 2 (Mahou Tsukai no Yome)

Chise Hatori, 15 years old. Lost, without hope, and without family, she is bought for money … not by another person, but by a non-human sorcerer named Elias. Though she hesitates, she begins life anew as his apprentice and future wife. Now grown more confident in her role as a sleigh beggy, Chise was able to accept Elias and herself, if not necessarily everything about her situation.

Then she receives an invitation from a mutual aid organization for mages called the College.

Long before they had what was supposed to be their final encounter during the Night Parade of a Hundred Demons, the pair were fellow students, rivals, and friends.

Turn back the clock to witness the mission that drove them to curse one another beyond even death.

They discover that Nobara’s Resonance is actually the perfect counter to Mahito, damaging the soul of both the double and main body still fighting Yuji. Unfortunately it is childhood flashback time for her.

Fuuko Izumo is known as a woman cursed with “Unluck.” Fuuko brings misfortune to anyone who touches her and the scale is proportional to how long they had physical contact. She’s saved by Andy, a man who cannot die (“Undead”). He hopes to figure out a way to use Fuuko’s misfortune to finally bring him death.
