Screening on Saturday 10th April 2021

As we enter April, we convene another exciting JAFWA screening night, with its usual program of anime goodness.
Just a reminder to come early, as the COVID countermeasures limit the number of people we can admit.

This week, we have a preview episode that has some applicability to people who attend conventions. This night we will have a double episode of “Vinland Saga”, to end the series (well first Season anyway). Here is hoping they animate further chapters of the manga of this fictionalised account of an Icelandic Saga.

Jaku-chara Tomozaki-kun Vinland Saga

A query:- Do we have enough interest to try doing an auction during the marathon screening of April 24?

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of CoVid-19, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
Help would be welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19. Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. There will be Contract Tracing, either by the SafeWA app on your keitai (mobile phones), or by signing in at the contact tracing sheet at the front desk. And we need to wipe the chairs down with disinfectant before they are stacked away.

Below is the tentative program for the evening of Saturday April 10th, 2021.

Screening on Saturday 27th March 2021

Another screening night of JAFWA this week, with its usual program of anime goodness. An astronomical side-note, that now that we have passed the Equinox, the night will be longer than the day. This being the last JAFWA session in April, do recall that we will have this week the usual end of month Survey, along with the Member’s Prize draw.
Just a reminder to come early, as the COVID countermeasures limit the number of people we can admit.

This week, we do not have any preview episodes to distract from the survey. However, as we wish to finish the series before the end of the year, we will have a double episode of “Revolutionary Girl Utena”.

Screening on Saturday 20th March 2021

Another screening night of JAFWA this week, with its usual program of anime goodness.
Just a reminder to come early, as the COVID countermeasures limit the number of people we can admit.

As per usual (and we do appreciate it), there is far more anime being produced in Japan then we can ever hope to screen at JAFWA. Still, the JAFWA committee has found a couple of titles that may cause your cultural appreciation of anime to become elevated. In this week’s program we have two different preview episodes, though this means “Vinland Saga” is being pushed back a week.

Maiko-san Chi no Makanai-san Wonder Egg Priority

The “Demon Slayer” movie, sequal to the anime series seen at JAFWA, called Mugen Train is screening at various cinemas. Mostly in the Japanese language with English subtitles.

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of CoVid-19, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.

Event afternoon, then Screening on Saturday 27th February 2021

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 1:00PM to 4:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen, and see if your game machine can plug into it. 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 evening of February 27th 2021

The last JAFWA in February is upon us, with the usual end of month Survey, along with Member’s Prize draw.
The only excuse we will accept for not attening is if you are at the cinemas watching the Demon Slayer: Mugen Train movie.

We have reached the end of the second season of “Fruits Basket“, and will show the final two episodes this week. Which means “Arte” will be bumped back to March, but otherwise we have the regular program this week after the Event afternoon.
I presume people will be hanging out for the third and final season of “Fruits Basket“? Due out soon in Japan.

Fruits Basket

As a matter of interest, Madman has sales on until the end of the month.

No Screening on Saturday 6th February 2021

No JAFWA on the first Saturday of February.

This coincides with the current COVID lockdown, which should hopefully be lifted by the time we return on Feb 13th. At all times We intend to maintain our Hall with appropriate COVID countermeasures.

While JAFWA should be able to go ahead on Feb 13 thanks to the prompt lockdown, some people may be disappointed in their attempts to see the new Studio Ghibli movie Earwig and the Witch at the cinemas this week. All we can say is
Ganbatte!
