Amagi Brilliant Park is a light novel series written by Shoji Gatoh, who is most known for his popular light novel series Full Metal Panic!. 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!). The series began in February 2013 in Fujimi Shobo’s Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint and currently has a total of 4 volumes released. In addition to the light novel, Gatoh is also producing the manga adaptation of the series, which started earlier this year in Fujimi Shobo’s Monthly Dragon Age magazine.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
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 from Kyoto Animation will be airing from October 2nd on TBS at 26:03, during the Fall/Autumn 2014 anime season.
