Applications are currently being accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Those that apply sooner will have the opportunity to start the race first. At the finish line, a special after party will be held that will host special guest stars J-pop singer Hiroshi Kitadani and J-pop band D-51; both sang the first and sixth opening of the anime, respectively.
