Welcome to Ani-TAY news, your daily stop for all recent Anime, Manga, VNs, LNs, etc. news out there. We will bring you 3 (or more) random news from around the web every day to keep you up to date with the latest things going on around.
Pre-screening Event of Sailor Moon: Crystal Is Women's Only
The official website for the 20th anniversary of the Sailor Moon franchise announced on Friday that there will be an advance premiere screening event for the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal anime series. The women's fashion magazine ViVi is collaborating on the June 30 event to celebrate the heroine Usagi's birthday.
The "birthday party" will feature ViVi models and "secret guests." The Zepp Diver City facility in Tokyo will host the screening of the new anime's first episode on June 30 at 7:00 p.m. However, the staff caution that the time is subject to change. Moreover, male attendees will not be allowed — unless accompanied by a female attendee, so loners are out of luck it seems, unless.... you know what forget it, I was going to write something very dumb.
You Can Pay to Pay to be An Extra on Attack on Titan Live-Action Film
Travel and tourism agency JTB is offering a "Attack on Titan Extra Tour" where interested customers can pay 39,800 yen (~$400) to appear as an extra in next year's live-action Attack on Titan film. Participants will also get a group photo on set, too.
The tour leaves Tokyo on June 7 and is limited to 25 people (so go and book up soon). The tour includes a chartered bus and a three-night stay in Route Inn Hitachitaga, in Hitachi City, Ibaraki Prefecture. Meals are also included. Participants must be at least 20 years old, 185 cm or shorter, 85kg or lighter, have natural, black hair coloring, and unmanicured nails (Mm my weight is 86kg so I guess I'm out).
Haruhi Franchise Isn't Dead (Probably)
Not only are we getting an Anime adaptation of spin-off manga The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan, but now there's one other Haruhi franchise bit to look forward to.
At the end of April there were some rumors that a Pachinko slot machine produced by Sankyo was on the works, but now there's a certain teaser announcement that can confirm this.
In the promo Image you can see on the side, you can read "Fever Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu) a name pretty similar to the one the Sankyo machine was supposed to have. The teaser also comes with a QR code that redirects to the haruhi.com website (which as of now, is still restricted for entry)
It seems the franchise is getting a new project, now we just need to wait for Tanigawa to write some more
Bonus: Top 10s of the Week

No susprises there, I know how ridiculously popular both Only my Railgun and Kimi no Shiranai Monogarati (personal favorite) are on polls in Japan. But how about you?
1.- Kyōkai no Kanata: Mirai Kuriyama
2.- Monogatari Series: Tsubasa Hanekawa
3.- Madoka Magica: Homura Akemi
4.- Rebuild of Evangelion: Mari Illustrious Makinami
