Plot

Amagi Brilliant Park Amagi Brilliant Park Wikipedia

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.

Main characters

Seiya Kanie (可児江 西也, Kanie Seiya)
Voiced by: Kōki Uchiyama (Japanese); Adam Gibbs (English) Seiya is a perfectionist high school student who is extremely intelligent, has excellent reflexes, and acts like a prince to the point of being a narcissist which annoys people. As a child, he was involved in the entertainment industry and his stage name was Seiya Kodama. According to Isuzu, he was a child who would have made any parent proud. However, Seiya has told her that he died a long time ago. Latifah grants him the magical power of listening to a person's heart, although it only works once with each person. After some time he opens up to the park's workers, especially Isuzu, with whom he shares his fears and insecurities, which encourages Isuzu when she was disappointed of herself. He once met Latifah when he was a kid, but he didn't remember until he found out about her curse. His name originates from Kanye West.
Isuzu Sento (千斗 いすず, Sento Isuzu)
Voiced by: Ai Kakuma (Japanese); Molly Searcy (English) A royal guard who forces Seiya to go on a "date" with her to Amagi Brilliant Park. She has a stoic personality, rarely showing emotion. Despite that facade, she is also very sensitive. She managed Amagi Brilliant Park before Seiya's arrival, but she was a poor manager due to her upbringing as a royal guard and her fearsome reputation among the staff. Once Seiya takes over as manager, Isuzu serves his secretary. After meeting Seiya her personality slowly changes and she eventually develops feelings for him but refuses to tell him. Isuzu carries a magical muzzleloader named Steinberger that has been magically infused into her body, so she can summon it from any exposed skin. With it she fires bullets with different effects such as removing the target's memory or simply causing a lot of pain.
Latifah Fleuranza (ラティファ・フルーランザ, Ratifa Furūranza)
Voiced by: Yukiyo Fujii (Japanese); Cindy Lou Parker (English) The princess of Maple Land. She gives Seiya some of her magical powers by kissing him. According to Triken, she is Moffle's niece and bears a striking resemblance to his sister. Due to her frail body as well as other circumstances, she cannot leave her garden which is surrounded by a magic barrier. In the light novel, Latifah is blind. It turns out that a wizard cursed her, making her body deficient in Animus, Maple Land's life force. The curse renews each year, resetting her memory and age, meaning she has lived as a 14-year-old for more than a decade. Her name originates from Queen Latifah.

Mascots

Moffle (モッフル, Moffuru)
Voiced by: Ayako Kawasumi (Japanese); Tiffany Grant (English) A fairy of candies with the form of a mouse with a hat, and Amagi Brilliant Park's main mascot, who takes a mutual dislike towards Seiya. He is Latifah's uncle and is very protective of her. He has the same appearance as Bonta, the fictional mascot of the Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu series (animated at the same studio, Kyoto Animation, and based on a light novel by the same author, Shoji Gatoh). He hates it when someone calls him a rip-off of Bonta. It is hinted, albeit indirectly, that Moffle hates Latifah's father due to his marriage to Moffle's beloved sister and that Latifah was merely left in his care.

Voiced by: Ryōko Shiraishi (Japanese); Allison Keith-Shipp (English) A fairy of music with the form of a sheep, and one of the park's mascots. He has a short temper.
