Screening of Saturday 25th May 2024

Screening on the evening of Saturday, May 25th 2024

And thus May comes to an end and you know what that means – it is the monthly Member’s Prize draw! Also, we will be having quick survey during the Dinner Break to see which items are enjoyed by the membership, so please be honest and scalar. I probably won’t need to remind people that JAFWA is operating on Winter hours. Just continue coming about 4PM with preparations to go home at 9:45PM. This situation will continue through to September. Blame it on the lack of daily sunshine and warmth.

Once again apologies that we did not screen “Demon Slayer” last week. We didn’t screen it the first week of May because for some reason it didn’t show in Japan. It showed in Japan last week, but we found out too late that it was a double-length episode, so we couldn’t fit it in the program last week (instead showing an extra episode of “Oshi no Ko”). Hence we screen it this week!

A fixture of the Perth fandom scene for many years, and a long-time supporter of JAFWA, we are saddened by the news that Tokyo Underground is closing. Their final day of trading is going to be June 30th, and they have already begun marking down prices for the final sale.

TU closing

This week our JAFWA program has some excitement, in the form of:

  • If all goes according to schedule the the fourth and final series of “Demon Slayer” will begin screening this week, as we enter the Hashira Training story arc.
  • A preview episode for inclusion in the survey, about youthful grandparents.
  • We farewell our beloved “The Masterful Cat is Depressed Again Today” with its final episode.
  • And finally, we begin the complete the awesome “Attack on Titan” series with the first of two conclusionary movies (the second in June).

The nearest stores are a few miles away and one of the local schools consists of only five students, each of whom is in a different grade of elementary or middle school. Hotaru Ichijo, a fifth grader from Tokyo, transfers into Asahigaoka Branch School and has to adjust to countryside life with her new friends.

This evening’s Episode:It Was a Thrilling Autumn

It is parents day at Asahigaoka Branch School, and the presence of Yukiko Koshigaya (Natsumi, Komari, and Suguru’s mother) makes both Natsumi and Kazuho nervous.

Natsumi and Renge set up a fish-tank for Salt, a crab the younger girl wants to keep until the weather warms up again.

For ten years, elf mage Frieren traveled with Himmel the hero, Heiter the priest, and Eisen the dwarf warrior as they quested to destroy the demon king. At the end of their journey, Frieren set out on her own, not quite understanding how differently time flows for her versus her human companions. Reunited after fifty years only to see them wither and die, Frieren begins to ponder the nature of connections at a time when it’s already too late to say goodbye.

This Evening’s Episode:Phantoms of the Dead

For the journey to the Demin King’s castle, Frieren acknowledges ten years is potentially a tenth of Fern’s lifespan but Fern decides to follow her.

Frieren suspects an Einsam, a monster that lures victims with illusion magic.

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:The New Pure Consort

Maomao, on Gyokuyou’s recommendation, is tasked with educating the new Pure Consort Loulan and Wise Consort Lihua on “serving” the Emperor. Jinshi formally assigns her the responsibility.

However, Eren Yeager and the Survey Corps have reached the Marley shoreline.

The Rumbling continues, with the Colossal Titans killing countless people, including Ramzi and Halil and Grisha’s parents, and destroying civilizations all over the world. Meanwhile, the ship carrying the scouts and warriors arrive at Odiha, where the flying boat is damaged. However, before the flying boat can be properly repaired, the Rumbling arrives. Hange appoints Armin as the next commander of the Survey Corps before going up against the Colossal Titans alone, buying the others just enough time to get the aircraft off the ground.
En route to Eren, the scouts and warriors discuss plans to confront him, with Armin still believing in a peaceful resolution. During their conversation, Eren suddenly brings them into the paths dimension, explaining that in order to stop the Rumbling, they must kill him. Many refugees from Liberio, including the Warriors’ families, escape to Fort Salta, a Marleyan base. As they arrive, they see a number of airships launching an assault on Eren and his Titans. The flying boat arrives and the scouts and warriors jump from the aircraft for the final attack.
