TBS’s tweet roughly translates to:
“[Important] for broadcasting “Amagi Brilliant Park” in the first episode, is the announcement. For volleyball broadcast extension, date and time of the broadcast first episode has been changed. Episode 1 will be from (Mon) 27:40 midnight October 6.”
The anime adaptation of Shoji Gatoh’s light novel series Amagi Brilliant Park will be directed by Yasuhiro Takemoto, who directed Hyouka and Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu – the latter is another anime based on Gatoh’s works. Shoji Gatoh is most known for his popular light novel series Full Metal Panic!, which received an anime adaptation by Kyoto Animation and another by Gonzo. Amagi Brilliant Park began in February 2013 and currently has 4 volumes released. The light novels are illustrated by Yuka Nakajima, who did the character designs for the 2012 anime Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! (Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!). In addition to the light novel, Gatoh is also producing the manga adaptation of the series, which started earlier this year.
The story centers around a highschool student Seiya Kanie. On a Sunday, a mysterious transfer student who carries a musket gun Isuzu Sento takes him to an old and deserted amusement park Amagi Brilliant Park in Amagi-city, which is located in the western part of Tokyo. He is told that if the park can’t attract 100,000 visitors in the next two weeks, it will be closed immediately. For some reason, Seiya has to save the park as an acting manager.
