The official website of the Amagi Brilliant Park anime has revealed that the series will be airing this Fall/Autumn. The adaptation is based on Shoji Gatoh’s light novel series, and will be animated by Kyoto Animation. The announcement is also the first look on the character designs of the anime.
The anime adaptation of Shoji Gatoh’s light novel series Amagi Brilliant Park will be directed by Yasuhiro Takemoto, who directed Hyouka and Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu – the latter is another anime based on Gatoh’s works. Shoji Gatoh is most known for his popular light novel series Full Metal Panic!, which received an anime adaptation by Kyoto Animation and another by Gonzo. Amagi Brilliant Park began in February 2013 and currently has 4 volumes released. The light novels are illustrated by Yuka Nakajima, who did the character designs for the 2012 anime Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! (Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!). In addition to the light novel, Gatoh is also producing the manga adaptation of the series, which started earlier this year.
Here is a synopsis of the series:
The story centers around a highschool student Seiya Kanie. On a Sunday, a mysterious transfer student who carries a musket gun Isuzu Sento takes him to an old and deserted amusement park Amagi Brilliant Park in Amagi-city, which is located in the western part of Tokyo. He is told that if the park can’t attract 100,000 visitors in the next two weeks, it will be closed immediately. For some reason, Seiya has to save the park as an acting manager.
The Amagi Brilliant Park anime will be coming out in the Fall/Autumn 2014 season of anime. Kyoto Animation will be producing the series who released the first visual a few weeks back.
