Do you love Fate/Stay Night? Ever loved Illya so much that you wished she had a show for herself? Ever wanted to see her as a school girl? And then suddenly she gets into a magical girl adventure that has nothing to do with Fate/Stay Night? Well… You are pretty fucked up, but you will love this show.
For everyone else who never though about such an idea and who are completely disgusted by the simple thought of such thing existing, welcome to the club. This show is nearly insulting by its mere existence. Why would I watch a magical girl adventure of a show that is supposed to be so grim and badass? I don’t want little girl shoots magical rainbow out of a talking stick while giving panty shots every 2 minutes. If you can’t do a real Fate/Story, just don’t do anything !
Alright, having this out of the way…I actually loved the episode and I’ll probably be watching this throughout the season. I think I lost a lot of self-respect by saying this, but it is the truth. Once I was over the fact that this show was about Illya and that it was from the “universe” of Fate/Stay Night, I just couldn’t stop laughing and having a great time. The show has ecchi, magical girls, rude and evil talking sticks, and I somehow just love seeing Illya bullied so much in the first episode, I must have some kind of weird sadistic tendency that make me enjoy seeing innocent little girl suffering. The show is light-hearted, entertaining and very cute at the same time, it is also not necessary at all to have seen any of the prequels and other work of the same series since while the show has a lot of reference to previous concept of the universe, there is really nothing more than comical reference. The story is nothing alike, the characters and universe are completely changed too. I never once saw a talking stick in Fate/Zero.
While I loved the show, I doubt that I will actually blog it. I won’t completely disregard the possibility that I’ll blog this, if it is really popular I might very well have a go at it, but I have a feeling that there will be some much more worthwhile shows to blog this Summer and while enjoyable, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya is still just a light comedy involving magical girls. I will be watching this show closely and if it proves really popular I might blog it, but don’t hold out hope for that to happen. Although I would still recommend this show to anyone who wants some fun and cheerful magical girl, or recommend it to people who are fan of the fate/series, just to troll them.
