Story

Seiya Kanie was forcefully asked on a date to an amusement park from Isuzu Sento, the new mysterious beauty of a transfer student. Without understanding of anything, he was brought to Amagi Brilliant Park, the most disappointing amusement park in Japan known for its deserted attractions and lackluster service.

Seiya, shown through to its owner Latifah, a “true princess”, for no reason is suddenly entrusted with rebuilding the park that is facing closure. Furthermore, it was not just a commonplace amusement park--!?
