Sentai Filmworks Licenses KyoAni's Amagi Brilliant Park Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Tuesday that it acquired the Amagi Brilliant Park television anime. The company says that the anime "will soon be available through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow."
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 Latifah, 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."
Yasuhiro Takemoto (Full Metal Panic!, Lucky Star, Hyōka) directed the anime at Kyoto Animation. The anime premiered in Japan in October.
Shoji Gatoh (Full Metal Panic!) launched the original light novel series with illustrations by Yuka Nakajima (Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!/Papa Kiki!) in 2013. Fantasia Bunko published the fifth compiled volume last October.
