Kanie Seiya, a smart and extremely narcissistic high school student, believes that the beautiful but reserved Sento Isuzu has invited him on a date at an amusement park called Amagi Brilliant Park. Much to his chagrin, not only is the location a run-down facility, the supposed date is merely a recruitment tour where Sento and Princess Latifa Fleuranza, the owner of the theme park, ask him to become the park's new manager. Their cause for desperation? As stipulated in a land-use contract, Amagi has less than three months to meet a quota of 500,000 guests, or the park will be closed for good and the land redeveloped by a greedy real-estate company.
Seiya is won over by the revelation that Amagi is no ordinary amusement park; many of its employees are Maple Landers mysterious magical beings who live in the human world and are nourished by the energy created by people having fun. Entrusted with the hopes and dreams of this far-off enchanted land, Seiya must now use his many skills to bring Amagi back on its feet, or watch it crumble before his eyes.

Firstly this collector's edition is underwhelming, but that's generally what you come to expect from manga UK, if you've seen the US collector's then you know exactly what I mean as that is loaded with physical extras, this just has two extra cases and a poster, it makes you wonder if they were even trying with this collector's release.
The dub, for most Kyoani localisations there are solid dubs, Haruhi Suzumiya, Full Metal Panic! Fumoffu! these are some of the best dubs in anime, Clannad, Kanon, K-On! these are solid dubs, not without slight issues but still solid, some of the later ones do have one or two more issues, but they are still generally good dubs or they just have one character that brings it down.
This dub however is really disappointing, some of the voices aren't bad, but some fall flat, others just don't really work in how they have done things, overall it's kind of bad, but more than that it's generally painful on the ears and affects your enjoyment, I just can't sit back, relax and marathon these episodes with a smile on my face like I can do with the sub or I can with the other dubs I mentioned above.
So for the best experience, this is one of those where you are better off watching the sub.
Now for the review and the positives, and as it's Kyoani, there are a lot of positives.
Story: There is a failing themepark, a student is roped into trying to save it, he must achieve 250,000 guests in three months to do so, can he do it?
Well yes, of cause he can, we all know he's going to succeed in the end and turn things around because that's what happens in these things and if he didn't then it wouldn't leave things open for a potential second season (which Kyoani have no real interest in doing at this moment)
So, if we already know how it's going to end, what's the point in watching? Simply put, because like all these types of anime, it's how you get there that's the fun part, and as the twist with this story is that most of the characters are actually from a fairytale land and those aren't costumes, this only adds to the shenanigans.
Obviously this is a comedy, and it's focus is on its characters, they are brilliant and their interactions make this show, the only slight issue with the characters is when you know the origins of their names, it kind of ruins the immersion a bit and I wish the author hasn't done that, I can live with Moffle being a Bonta-kun imitation, after all that's the joke, and it's the same author as Full Metal Panic! But Kanye West, 50 Cent, Queen Latifah, you have to ask, why?
The art, goes without saying, Kyoani make some really good looking anime, they are well animated and this is no exception.
The sound is good, just avoid the dub, the soundtrack does it's job but isn't especially memorable, the only memorable part is the start of the opening song.
Overall it's a really fun enjoyable anime, I would recommend it to any Kyoani fan
