Anime News

Good news to Illya fans out there: the popular Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya franchise will be getting a new theatrical anime film! The announcement was made this Thursday in the official website of the franchise’s anime adaptation. The site has also revealed a promotional video for the upcoming film. Check it out here!

In addition to a new promo video, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya manga author Hiroshi Hiroyama also released a promotional visual for the upcoming film. Check it out below:

Hiroyama’s manga was first launched in 2007 in Kadokawa Shoten’s Comp Ace. The series lasted until 2008; when the original manga ended, Hiroyama launched several sequel series. Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya re-imagines Fate/stay night character Illyasviel von Einzbern as a magical girl in an alternate universe. Anime News Network describes the series’ story as such:

“Illyasviel von Einzbern is a normal schoolgirl in Japan. She lives with her overachieving nice guy older brother Shirou Emiya and her two maids, her parents are perpetually out of the country, and she has fanciful dreams of using magic to make her dreams of love with Shirou come true. Enter fierce rivals Rin Tohsaka and Luviagelita Edelfelt, two Magi who have been sent to Japan by Zelretch the Wizard Marshall, Master of Parallel Worlds, with the powerful sentient Kaleidosticks to collect the mysterious Class Cards and clean up their mess. After getting fed up with their constant infighting, one Kaleidostick, Magical Ruby, senses Illya’s fleeting dream of magic and leaves Rin for her, tricking her into becoming a magical girl. Now Illya is being forced by Rin to collect the dangerous Class Cards in her place. But perhaps more dangerous still are Illya’s own mysteries that may have unknowingly attracted Ruby to her.”

The series was first adapted into an anime series in 2013. The series’ success led to three more seasons from 2014 to 2016; in 2017, the first film in the franchise, Gekijouban Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya: Sekka no Chikai, premiered in Japan.
