Screening on Saturday 21st May 2022

Screening on the evening of Saturday, May 21st 2022

Last week our attendees discovered why we always say “expected program” in these bulletins – there was a last minute change, in that we added a curious little preview item after the Late Break, and pushed an episode of “Cells at Work: Black” to this week. Don’t we make life exciting?
It seems like everyone adjusted well to the new Winter early hours program we started last week. Good thing too, as the Winter weather and darkness dropped in. We will keep these Winter hours until September.

This is another reminder to think about the upcoming Annual General Meeting and committee elections in July. We request that all signed up members come along that afternoon to find out how the current committee have been doing over the last year, discuss issues to be dealt with, raise motions for actions to be carried out in your names, and then in the evening Dinner Break, vote in the new committee.

As well as out normal regular items, we will also screen two preview episodes this week. Firstly, for the sake of World Peace, a master Spy must create a loving, fake family. And secondly, see the Prisoner’s Dilemma played out amongst five classmates.
We also have the final episode of “Fena: Pirate Princess”.

Spy x Family Tomodachi Game Kaizoku Oujo

Cash for Containers

As people may have noticed, JAFWA collects the recyclable containers (cans and bottles) that are disposed of by our attendees. It helps in a small way.

if you too would like to help JAFWA, and get rid of your unwanted recyclable containers, then please take them to Containers for Change, and quote JAFWA’s account number – C10505693.

Covid-19 Safety Precautions

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible future waves 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 is always welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19 precautions.
  • No longer need to arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. Contact Tracing, either by the SafeWA app on your keitai (mobile phones), or by signing in at the contact tracing sheet near the entry, is no longer required.
  • We are no long required by City of South Perth to check our attendees’ Vaccination status.

Screening on the evening of Saturday, May 14th 2022

We have reached the end of the month of May already, and the weather will be telling us it is no longer Summery (last week’s sausage sizzle was a last hurrah – mmmm sizzled sausages).
But Fear Not, for starting this upcoming screening, JAFWA will be running on Winter hours (addressed in last year’s AGM) – hence we start and finish an hour earlier. So we will be seeing you this week for a 4:15PM start!

That is a reminder to think about the upcoming Annual General Meeting and committee elections in July. We request that all signed up members come along that afternoon to find out how the current committee have been doing over the last year, discuss issues to be dealt with, raise motions for actions to be carried out in your names, and then in the the evening vote in the new committee.

As well as out normal regular items, we will also screen a preview episode this week. The old fantasy trope of the chosen hero defeating the armies of evil. But then, what happens after that?

Screening on the evening of Saturday, April 30th 2022

We thank everyone who attended last week’s marathon anime afternoon. An apology for the movie running over-length, we are a little out of practice with marathon screenings. Hope everybody enjoyed the movie. Perhaps we should have more practice? Something to consider for the AGM in July.
At any rate, the episodes of “non non biyori repeat”, and “uramichi-oniisan” that we were forced to skip last week, will be pushed instead to this week.

We have reached the end of the month of April already. So you know what that means – the monthly JAFWA member prize.
Also, we will have our member survey, where you tell us what you enjoy on the JAFWA program by ranking regular items and recent preview items.
But that is not all! We have a preview episode before the Dinner Break, that will hopefully demonstrate the effort of taking it easy.

Ya Boy Kongming!

Still looking for a couple of volunteers to help out at our next Bunnings Sausage Sizzle fundraiser, to be held Saturday May 7th at Cannington Bunnings.

Screening on the afternoon and evening of Saturday, April 23rd 2022

Delayed a couple of years due to a combination of weather and CoViD, JAFWA is once again going to try and do and extra long “Marathon” session of anime this week. We are slightly out of practice, so only the afternoon session will be non-regular program stuff. Thanks to everyone who provided suggestions. There will be a pizza run.
If this proves popular, we can try a better, more varied marathon session later.

We shall also be screening a single preview episode. This one is actually written by a former serving police office.
Regretably, there won’t be room for “Golden Kamuy” this week.
And two of our regular series will be ending this week.

JAFWA continues to provide Japanese cultural goodness through the medium of anime.
This week we start a new regular series, and provide 2 preview episodes. The spread of isekai is resulting in the deconstruction of the genre. Still, it won’t be as much new anime as the week after when we have an afternoon of anime.

Screening on the evening of Saturday, April 9th 2022

April is upon us, yet JAFWA still shines forth as your local source of anime-watching goodness.

Thanks to everybody who signed the petition to keep it open, but to quote Tokyo Underground:

It’s a sad day. We have just been advised the Hyogo Prefectural Government Cultural Centre will close at the end of March 2023 and will cease all activities at the end of September this year. The Centre has the largest Japanese resource library and wonderful harmony Japanese garden, and provides adult Japanese language classes, cultural workshops, film nights, exhibitions, displays, seminars and school visits . A regular stall holder at the Perth Japan Festival. The aim of the centre is to promote understanding and exchange between Western Australia and Hyogo through education, government, culture, tourism, sports and business. We will miss you.

Event Afternoon and Screening on Saturday 26th March 2022

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from about 12:30PM 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. 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 26th 2022

We have reached the end of the month of March already. So you know what that means – the monthly JAFWA member prize.
Also, we will have our member survey, where you tell us what you enjoy on the JAFWA program by ranking regular items and recent preview items.
But that is not all! We have a preview episode before the Dinner Break, that will hopefully not be a training montage for your inner Mad Scientist.
But last, and by no means least, we are going to screen a full length theatrical anime movie. It has been a while since JAFWA has done this, so we will start off slow with an old classic “Night on the Galactic Railroad”, adapted from the award winning novel by Kenji Miyazawa. (In May, we are looking at something more modern)

Kaijin Kaihatsu-bu no Kuroitsu-san Night on the Galactic Railroad

NOTE We are now required by City of South Perth to check our attendees’ Vaccination status.

Also welcome our newest Associate Members – the Curtin Pop Culture Club!

There is also the Shounen Jump anime movie ““Jujutsu Kaisen 0”” screening in select cinemas, to which JAFWA has handed out some free passes.

Some of as wish to go to Tokyo to witness Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away Comes To Life With Puppets in person.

Screening on Saturday 19th March 2022

Screening on the evening of Saturday, March 19th 2022

Last week’s Bean Poll to officially attempt an afternoon of of anime (ie a marathon screening from about 1PM) on April 23rd was overwhelmimgly positive. Even though this will be the same weekend as HoshiCon, more people wish to come to JAFWA.
Now the big question is, what do we screen during this marathon afternoon? The JAFWA committee has a few suggestions, mostly movies, that we are looking to source. However, more suggestions will be welcome – with the proviso that they be well-lit movies (as we will probably be competing with the afternoon sun) and family friendly in case families wander in. Hence the Goblin Slayer movie “Goblin Crown” is not an acceptable suggestion (but we are looking at screening it late some May night).

But for news of this week, we will have a preview episode that may be of interest to cosplayers and those who make cosplay outfits.

Sono Bisque Doll

NOTE We are now required by City of South Perth to check our attendees’ Vaccination status.

Also welcome our newest Associate Members – the Curtin Pop Culture Club!

Don’t forget that another anime movie “Jujutsu Kaisen 0” about to start in selected cinemas on Thursday. Hope the winners of the passes we gave away last Saturday enjoy the supernatural fighting movie.

Looking for volunteers to help out at our next Bunnings Suausge Sizzle fundraiser, to be held Saturday May 7th at Canningtom Bunnings.
