After all, Mayano is named after Top Gun, and the horse girl always has a need for speed. The anime even gifted the girl slang found in the film such as “You copy?” along with a general love of flying. Now, Cruise’s big sequel has given Mayano the chance to show off her Top Gun love, and this tie-in poster proves as much.

For those wanting to see Top Gun: Maverick, the Hollywood blockbuster is set to debut stateside on May 27th. You can find the sequel’s full synopsis below for more details:


“After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.””
