When new transfer student Isuzu asks Seiya Kanie out on a date at gunpoint, he knows something  odd is going on. Especially since she wants to go to Amagi Brilliant Park, where the rides are either  dangerous or mind-numbingly dull and the only costumed performers who aren’t rude or apathetic  are the ones who didn’t show up for work. So when Isuzu asks Seiya to take over as the park’s new  manager, he knows she’s crazy (Well, crazy-er, given the gunpoint thing.). But when Seiya learns  that Amagi Brilliant Park is a REAL Magic Kingdom, that the costumed performers aren’t wearing  costumes, that they live off the energy created by attendees, and that unless they can attract 250,000  attendees in three months, they’ll lose their jobs and homes… he goes a little crazy himself. But,  even with the aid of scantily clad fairies, giant mice and sniper-trained sheep, can anyone rescue a  park that’s sunk so low that its own bus doesn’t stop there anymore? The race is on to get the  turnstiles turning and save AMAGI BRILLIANT PARK!

Runtime: 350 min.

Release Date: February /28, 2017

Extras: "Extra Magic" International Mix, Clean Opening Animations, Clean Closing Animation, Booklet, Sticker Sheets, Iron Token, Mirror Button, Metal Pin Set + Card, Authenticity Card, Park Brochures, Map Poster
