When new transfer student Isuzu asks Seiya Kanie out on a date at gunpoint, he knows something odd is going on. Especially since she wants to go to Amagi Brilliant Park, where the rides are either dangerous or mind-numbingly dull and the only costumed performers who aren’t rude or apathetic are the ones who didn’t show up for work. So when Isuzu asks Seiya to take over as the park’s new manager, he knows she’s crazy (Well, crazy-er, given the gunpoint thing.). But when Seiya learns that Amagi Brilliant Park is a REAL Magic Kingdom, that the costumed performers aren’t wearing costumes, that they live off the energy created by attendees, and that unless they can attract 250,000 attendees in three months, they’ll lose their jobs and homes… he goes a little crazy himself. But, even with the aid of scantily clad fairies, giant mice and sniper-trained sheep, can anyone rescue a park that’s sunk so low that its own bus doesn’t stop there anymore?

Yo Dawg, heard you like Fanservice ruining a great story? That for me was Amagi in a nutshell. I came expecting something nice in terms on how the Theme Park worked and all this magical stuff they keep going on about, but in all honesty, I havent really had much of that and instead you just get tons of Fanservice in replacement. The story is there somewhere, but after about 2 maybe 3 episodes it was out the window and now it just seems episodic. Random events happen that take an entire episode up basically fuel this anime entirely, and they dont really go back to the story much. So in terms of story, theres nothing there. Shame. It lacks story but It is a Comedy, so usually the story doesn't really need to be there. As a Comedy the anime works fine, it definitely has some chuckle to yourself moments, but thats all your getting. What you REALLY watch Amagi for is the Fanservice it throws at you from left, right and center. Characters are aimed towards the audiences taste - A Loli princess who is innocent as hell, and you big breasted character made just for "Those" moments. Then they throw in some adorable mascots and some cheerful entertainers which have captures quite a few people, So you will like the characters in and around this series. I'll probably be the first to say this, but I really like the main guy - A complete Narcissist. Im not usually into the "full of yourself" people, but this guy is cool for some reason. Okay, you want to cringe sometimes, but he has the intelligence to back it up which I thought would make this a good setting for him being the main. Shame the intelligence is rarely shown because of the story. Animation is fluidly done, you get your ace fanservice and theres defintely some nice moments worth noticing too I guess. But nothing too out of the norm, Its only a little above the standard of animating we get today. I think the most dissapointing thing is the lack of music in this, Its a shame as I like commenting on the sounds but to be honest, the music isn't worth noting in this. So, 3 and a half seems reasonable for this. Its nicely made but I feel it went off topic and im not getting what I came for, Instead I come back for the Fanservice like others do (I believe thats why people are watching, anything Ecchi and everyone is watching it) as Its worth noting. No special music and Story, but the Characters and Animation is something I guess.
Amagi Brilliant Park is definitely not one of those animes where you just sit and wonder what the f*ck you just turned on. It has a decent and compelling story and I have to admit I cried at the end. There was enough of a story and enough character development to make you care about what was going on. I laughed numerous times over the random shenanigans that went on and over some of the characters reactions to different events. I really enjoyed the animation. It flowed and was very clean cut; it kind of made me think of Free! in its smoothness of lines and movement. The music choices fit very nicely; they were silly when they needed to be silly or serious when they needed to be serious. My only thing about this anime is that while there was some character development I just don't know if there was enough to make any character memorable. I mean, I get that most people will probably remember Sento or Moffle but other than that no one else was memorable enough. Not even the main character Seiya Kanie was memorable. Heck, I don't think Sento or Moffle would end up on anybody's Top 5 Anime Characters list. However, this anime is fairly new so if there is another season or two I feel that the character development will change and get better because we as watchers will have more time to get to know the characters and maybe get a little more background story on a few. If you're into a cute anime about a young school boy saving a magical park while teaching and learning some important life principles, this is the anime for you!
Warning this Review may and probably will contain spoilers- One of today’s reviews will be on Amagi Brilliant Park, an anime that at the time of this review only finished a few days ago. Now a quick summary, Amagi Brilliant Park is a unique anime that you don’t come across often. The story is based around a theme park and Kanie an ‘average’ high schooler. It’s a story on how Kanie revives the park from its sorry state with help from Isuzu and Moffle plus many other characters. It also adds some drama nearer the end. STORY: The story like I said is unique, it has pretty much all my favourite genres mixed into one anime. The comedy aspect was consistence and even the jokes made me laugh every time. The fantasy element was clear. The story was quite amusing however if it was a longer anime I would of liked to see all the stages they had to go through to get to the final product (I found that they managed to draw in customers pretty quickly and I was unsure what changed so much), another thing that bothered me was what happened near the end of episode 12 but that is something else, I thought that left it open for a second series. ANIMATION: The animation is beautiful and I can seem to find any faults in it. It is the typical Kyoto animation style and is very similar to anime such as Beyond the Boundary. Just like them anime there were few faults in the animation or storyline, the anime just needs more episodes. SOUND: The opening was catchy….I mean really very catchy. So catchy that I find myself humming the tune everywhere T_T. However the ending wasn’t my favourite if you compare it to the opening. The voice acting was spot on, each character had a very good voice match. (I am actually hoping for an English dub, just to see if they can match up that perfection). CHARACTERS: The characters seem to be well thought out and their personalities all fit great around each other. I am also told that Moffle looks quite similar to another anime character from Full Metal Panic! Which I found was a sweet touch onto the series. The characters bring the whole show together and make it an awesome show. In conclusion, if you are looking for something light to watch here is a good anime to consider, plus do you like the new review style I thought I would try ^_^ -AngelBeatsYui-
