I was wondering when we were going to hear again from KyoAni, since the last new thing they’ve done was Kyoukai no Kanata. Today, they’ve announced their next project: an adaptation of the light novel Amagi Brilliant Park written by Shoji Gatoh, the man behind Full Metal Panic!.
Description from ANN:
This “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.”
So while it’s coming across as a completely typical school harem anime, we can at least take solace in the fact that it’ll look nice because it’s KyoAni. I’m loving Isuzu’s uniform though. We’ve never really seen KyoAni do a generic harem before (Clannad doesn’t count in my mind), so I’m interested to see if they’ll do anything to change up the formula. The setting in the source material sounds pretty interesting as it is. Who doesn’t like amusement parks?!
