While others are in the streets protesting, one young medical student becomes embroiled in a different kind of battle. As new medical technologies to save and extend lives come into play, the temptation for a surgeon to play God has never been so powerful. Even as he strives to prove his own skills to his colleagues, Hazama Kuroo begins to suspect that the potentials for abuse inherent in the medical system are already being exploited. To attempt to change the system means risking his own promising career as a surgeon, and to move against the perpetrators will put his own life in danger.

It doesn't help that the festival's current top pick is the band made up of ST☆RISH's own senior supervisors, QUARTET NIGHT! No matter what motivations their manager Saotome Shining might have for playing mix-and-match with these golden-throated gents, their future is ultimately going to be determined by their loyalty to each other and Haruka's ability to convert everything into song.

SYNOPSIS: 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!
