Official Summary: Seiya was forced to accept an invitation to an amusement park by the mysterious and beautiful girl Isuzu. What he didn't know was that she would bring him to the decrepit Amagi Brilliant Park, Japan's most disappointing amusement park. Seiya is introduced to the leader of the Park, the "real princess" Latifah, who suddenly entrusts him with saving the park, which is in danger of shutting down. Amagi Brilliant Park, it turns out, is not just any amusement park, but rather one populated by fairies. (via MAL)
Catie's Thoughts: Brilliant, light-hearted piece of fluff that makes good use of KyoAni's gorgeous visuals. It's silly and absurd in the best ways, from mascots who are really real (and lecherous dicks) to elemental fairies who sit on social media and pretty much everything in between. One mascot in particular might look a little familiar to anyone who's seen Full Metal Panic!, and yes, they make an aside (walking copyright violation, lol).
The characters are all likable even when they're dicks, the only thing I had issues with was that Sento pulled her magic rifle from under her skirt, but you never actually got flashed her panties so okay. Also there are so many characters who deserved more time and exploration, but. Enjoyable fluff and a great way to spend a weekend, although I did spend an inordinate amount of time chuckling that Seiya looks pretty much exactly like Haru with brown eyes and actual emotions, but that's KyoAni for you.
Watch It: Not available for streaming that I could find, Funimation has the rights.
