Type-Moon fans, are you excited for the upcoming spin-off of Fate/stay night? If you’re still on the fence, you should watch this funny trailer, featuring a lot of magic and familiar faces.
Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya is based on a manga by Hiroshi Hiroyama. The star of the anime is Illyasviel von Einzbern, a normal school girl who gains the power to transform into a magical girl and collect mystical Class Cards. It’s a quirky spin-off of Fate/stay night, but there are many familiar faces, including Rin, Luvia, and Shirou, as well as new characters like Illya’s rival, Miyu.
In this new, two-minute trailer, we finally get to see Illya in action, accompanied by the opening theme performed by ChouCho, and Magical Ruby kicking off by saying:
Nice to meet you! I am the lovable, righteous, and wonderful Magical Ruby-chan! Would you like to become a magical girl?
Along with the trailer, the studio Silver Link has revealed details on the limited edition of the first Blu-ray/DVD volume of Prisma Illya (yes, before the anime has even started airing!).
The first volume will be released on September 27, and the Blu-ray disc and limited edition DVD will include:
- A special drama CD, “The Emiya Family Gathering! A Happy Family Circle CD”, featuring Illya’s parents, plus Kiritsugu and Irisviel (what are those two doing in this spin-off?).
- An exclusive, 5-minute animated short.
- A 100-page illustration booklet by Hiroshi Hiroyama.
- The first trailer of the anime, updated with more dialogue.
- A specially illustrated box and disc case
- An Archer Class Card
The Blu-ray package will cost 7,980 yen, while the limited edition DVD package will cost 6,930 yen, and the normal edition DVD, 5,880 yen.
If you’re not sure whether you should get the limited edition, you can watch the anime first when it starts airing on July 12. Otherwise, you can pre-order the Blu-ray package right now out of blind faith.
As if the anime isn’t enough, Kadokawa Games is also developing a Prisma Illya game for the 3DS, which is slated for release on September 26, just one day before the first Blu-ray volume! Type-Moon fans, you better start saving money.
