Amagi Brilliant Park Episode 6 – Quick Summary

In Amagi Brilliant Park episode 6, “Not Enough Staff!,” Kanie had to drop another problem on his team: Amagi Brilliant Park did not have enough staff! So, they had to start recruiting. Toriken, in an attempt to lighten the mood, made a joke about Sento’s overly serious approach, but she took it to heart. Macaron made matters worse by slipping her some kind of drug. What does the drug do? Why is Sento freaking out over some of the applicants? And how many different definitions does AV have?

Favorite Quote from Amagi Brilliant Park Episode 6

Amagi Brilliant Park Episode 6: Moffle finally found a legitimate outlet for his anger.

Moffle seemed pretty pleased with himself! Capture from the Blu Ray.

I don’t like brothers who stab their sisters. It’s rare for Kanie and Moffle to work together – and with near perfect coordination. Those sound like odd things to start a paragraph with, don’t they? But they are part of my favorite quote this week.

Kanie needed to hire people, and he needed to hire people fast. Biino Bandou was one of the applicants. She was an upbeat, go-getting young woman. Beyond that, she was remarkable for two reasons.

First, she had been in Sento’s dream last night – the dream that undermined Sento’s confidence in her position and her relationship with Kanie.

Second, Bandou was bleeding – badly – from a stab wound. A wound her brother had given her. The same brother who tried to get to her again during the interview!

Kanie struck first with a round-house kick. A well-placed one, too! Moffle wrapped things up with a move he appeared to be born to perform. His uppercut put the brother down for the count.

“He’ll be eating through a tube for the foreseeable future,” he said, quite pleased with himself (15:18).

An ambulance took Bandou to the hospital, and Moffle finally found an acceptable outlet for his anger. Very efficient, from the narrative’s perspective!

Favorite Moment from Amagi Brilliant Park Episode 6

Amagi Brilliant Park Episode 6: Sento did her job even though she was in dire straits

Sento had to be miserable. Yet, she still did her job. Capture from the Blu Ray.

Setup: A Case of Mistaken Profession

It was pretty funny when Macaron drugged Sento, wasn’t it? Well, not really – Macaron was cruel for doing that to Sento, of all people. The end result was Sento spending the episode working herself frantic not to come out and tell Kanie she had feelings for him.

It all came to a head when Eiko Adachi came in for an interview. Kanie, Moffle, and Sento all misinterpreted her saying she had starred in “AV” productions to mean adult videos. As suave and worldly as Kanie tries to present himself, the dude is a wreck with women. While Moffle tried to find out her performing name and debut video, Kanie tried to come up with his next question. He couldn’t. He completely choked.

So he did the most natural thing in the world. He turned to Sento for help. And got an answer unlike anything he had expected.

Amagi Brilliant Park Episode 6: Kanie did not expect Sento to grab his tie.

Kanie was not expecting this reaction! Capture from the Blu Ray.

“Kanie,” she said, grabbing him by the tie (12:03), “don’t rely on me! Mind mind’s a mess right now! That woman looks just like the recruit in my dream, and you’re getting worked up over her history! You’re drooling over her because she’s the sophisticated busty ‘Big Sister’ type with all the patience and sexual experience that I don’t have! Don’t tell me you’re hire her as your secretary and fire m-”

She broke off and slammed her forehead onto the table to keep herself from saying any more. The water bottle that went flying was a nice touch!

To cap this off, to prove she’s just that dedicated, she said to Adachi, “Y-your reason for applying?”

Delivery: Sento’s Deep-Seated Strength

To be honest: yes, I laughed at the sight of Sento nearly confessing and going to extraordinary lengths to stop herself. It was played for comedy. But not entirely – and that “not entirely” bit was why this was my favorite moment.

Sento is a serious young woman. She’s responsible, and she will do anything to help and protect Latifa Fleuranza. Not only that, she’s amazing in a crisis, as we saw back in episode 4. Those are laudable qualities – just the sort of things that make characters appealing to me.

But Sento’s deeper than that. She’s struggling with feelings of inadequacy, and she has no idea what to do about her feelings for Kanie. These are things she wants to keep private. At the very least, they are things she wants to keep private until she decides to share them.

Amagi Brilliant Park Episode 6: Through no fault of her own, Sento's mind was all over the place.

Sento did not react well to the thought that Kanie might replace her. Capture from the Blu Ray.

Even as I chuckled at the flying water bottle, I felt remorse on her behalf. Those feelings carried a heavy enough burden in the privacy of her heart. For them to come spilling out had to be mortifying! Her expressions and demeanors during the various incidents proved that.

But did you see how, when it mattered during the interview, she still gave it her all? She was in misery – and she still asked the applicant a relevant question. That strength is why I like Sento so much. I could joke about how she rocks a business suit, but she’s way more than that. That depth of character is one of the reasons I decided to review this series in the first place – and man, is it great to watch again!
