Yasuhiro Takemoto (Full Metal Panic!, Lucky Star, Hyōka) will direct Kyoto Animation's television anime of the Amagi Brilliant Park light novel series by Full Metal Panic! author Shoji Gatoh.
The "slapstick drama" begins with Seiya Kanie, a high school boy who is invited on a date in an amusement park by a mysterious beautiful transfer student named Isuzu Sento. He is introduced to Ratifa, a "real" princess and the park's manager, and is asked to be the acting manager of this "disappointing amusement park in the Tokyo suburbs."
Gatoh started the series with illustrations by Yuka Nakajima (Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!/Papa Kiki!) last year, and Fantasia Bunko published the third volume in January. Kimitake Yoshioka (Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne manga) launched a manga adaptation in the March issue of Kadokawa's Dragon Age magazine last month.
