Screening on the evening of Saturday, July 13th 2024

July has arrived for those of us who chill at JAFWA‘s anime screening. This week we have the final TV episode of “Non Non Biyori nonstop” – the title may not necessarily correct. Or is it? Still, there is next week to look forward to!

Yes, next week that all important Annual General Meeting is scheduled for 2PM in the Hall before the screening of JAFWA on July 20th, and we need all signed up JAFWA members to attend. Find out how JAFWA is doing and vote on new things for JAFWA to do.
The other big decision coming up is the JAFWA annual election to be held during the Dinner Break of the JAFWA screening of July 20th. The 13th is the last date for our signed up members to nominate themselves for running. So spend the next couple of weeks determining your election platform.

For those of you who are interested, the Japanese Film Festival has gone from showing a series of Japanese movies online, to now showing TV episodes.

Non Non Biyori nonstop

If you don’t want to sponsor an entire night like Lindsay did in March, and the one coming in November, 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.

And there is the end of year irregular screening to consider. What do you want to see in it?

Non Non Biyori Nonstop (season 3)

In the countryside small town village of Asahigaoka, a place lacking many of the conveniences that people from the city are accustomed to. 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:The Cherry Blossoms Bloomed Again

The girls attend big-brother Suguru’s graduation ceremony at school. Akane comes to hang out with Konomi and meets Hikage. They go to the candy store to buy snacks, but Kaede has closed it for the day so they force it open. Hotaru, Komari and Natsumi go to play with Renge, who made plans with Shiori earlier, so the five of them go to the candy store for carboard. The other girls are still there, and although Kaede insists it’s her day off, they rope her into playing with them. When they walk Shiori back home, they find her mother in labour, call a taxi and look after Shiori. And when the cherry blossoms are blooming, heralding the coming of Spring. Suguru goes to highschool and the girls go get Shiori, who is starting elementary school.

Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End (Sousou no Furiiren)

Frieren

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:A Powerful Mage

Mortally wounded, Lügner is left to wonder how Fern is so powerful, until he comes to the realization that she had been suppressing her mana to look weaker than she actually is, which is considered a taboo among demon mages. Fern then finishes off Lügner. In a flashback to a thousand years ago, Flamme comes across a destroyed elf village and finds Frieren the only survivor, having managed to kill the demon general attacking her. Flamme decides to take Frieren on as her apprentice and teaches her how to indefinitely suppress her mana. She also teaches Frieren how to fight demons. Since demons are proud and self confident in their own magic and are incapable of suppressing their own mana.

Where Does the Doomsday Train Go? (“Shuumatsu Train Doko e Iku?”)

In a town in a not-so-ordinary countryside, there is a big and strange occurrence happening to its residents. But a young girl named Shizuru Chikura has a strong desire to see her lost friend again.

They’ll discover what awaits them at the last stop of the “Doomsday Train.”

After the soldiers leave, the girls convince a groundskeeper to help free them despite the punishment that she may receive for helping them. The groundskeeper explains that the 7G experiment caused Inariyama, the nearby JSDF military base, and all of its inhabitants to shrink. Doctor Makoto helped organize Inariyama to deal with the incident, up until the Boss overthrew her and seized control of the city. Shizuru and Reimi manage to rescue Makoto from the base, and discover the Boss is simply a normal sized human like them, Shizuru helps them escape, but gets knocked out. Reimi takes Makoto back to the train where she reveals she was a 7G scientist who worked alongside Zenjiro and Pontaro.

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:Chance or Something More

Gaoshun informs Jinshi of this afternoon’s activities, as he reflects on his recent interaction with Maomao. Meanwhile, Lihaku informs Maomao about a theft of ceremonial tools around the time of the explosion at the warehouse.

Maomao senses a connection along with the ivory pipe she found at the burned warehouse.

The life of a traveling merchant is a lonely one, a fact with which Kraft Lawrence is well acquainted. Wandering from town to town with just his horse, cart, and whatever wares have come his way, the peddler has pretty well settled into his routine—that is, until the night Lawrence finds a wolf goddess asleep in his cart. She strikes up a bargain with the merchant to lend him the cunning of “Holo the Wisewolf” to increase his profits in exchange for taking her along on his travels. Lawrence soon learns, though, that having an ancient goddess as a traveling companion can be a bit of a mixed blessing.

Tonight’s Episode:Merchant and Unreasonable God

Andy decides the best plan is to infiltrate the manga’s production office with a copy of their own manga.
