. A 13-episode anime television series adaptation by Kyoto Animation
aired in Japan between October 6 and December 25, 2014. Seiya Kanie
is a good looking, perfectionist boy who is forced by the mysterious Isuzu Sento
to visit an amusement park named Amagi Brilliant Park
, which is in serious financial trouble and about to be closed forever. The park is actually staffed by refugees from a magical realm called Maple Land
and the park is a facility for harvesting magical energy from visitors while they're having fun. As such, the park is the only way the refugees can maintain their existence in the human realm. To save the park from closing, Seiya is hired by the owner, Latifah Fleuranza
, the princess of Maple Land (whom Seiya met before when he was a young boy), to become its new manager and use his skills in entertainment to save it. However, they have only three months to attract 250,000 visitors, a feat that seems impossible given the park's current situation.
