Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA 2wei Herz!

The story of girls that got roped into Fate finally enters summer break!?

The sea! Swimsuits! Birthdays! The daily lives(!?) of magical girls is about to get real right now!!


Illyasviel von Einzbern
VA:Mai Kadowaki

A 5th grader who became a magical girl after being tricked by Magical Ruby. Her potential as a magical girl is high, and sometimes she surprises Rin and the others. Overcoming the gathering of Class Cards and the deathmatch against Bazett, she has deepened her ties to Miyu and Kuro. A bright, energetic girl whose heart races for the summer break that is finally going to start.

Miyu Edelfelt
VA: Kaori Nazuka

The other magical girl who made a pact with Magical Sapphire. Excelling in both academics and physical strength, she has great combat capabilities. Seemingly solitary for her entire life, she works in Luvia's estate as a live-in maid. Through her battles, she became lifelong friends with Illya, but there are things she still can't talk to Illya about, such as the existence of an older brother and the 8th Class Card...

Chloe von Einzbern
VA:Chiwa Saito

A dark-skinned girl born from Illya. Nicknamed Kuro. Her wish of "living a normal life" was granted, and was given a family and a place to be. Normally, she enjoys school life as Illya's cousin, but since she has materialized with the Archer Class Card as her core, she cannot continue to exist without getting charged with Illya's magical powers.

Rin Tosaka
VA:Kana Ueda

Ruby's previous master and sorceress. User of gem magic, and has enough skill to vie for the top of her class at the Clock Tower in London. She has stayed in Fuyuki City even after her mission of Class Card collection was completed. She and Luvia are like cat and dog, but to earn money to live, she lives in Luvia's estate as a live-in maid.

Luviagelita Edelfelt
VA:Shizuka Ito

A sorceress, just like Rin, was sent by the Clock Tower to Fuyuki City in order to collect the Class Cards. Prides herself in her immense wealth, and lives in a giant mansion she built right across from Illya's house. Her skills in magic are high, and she goes against her rival Rin at each and every turn.

Irisviel von Einzbern
VA:Sayaka Ohara

She had been living with her husband Kiritsugu overseas, but came back to Japan sensing a change in Illya. Ended the fight (?) between Illya and Chloe with the powers of a mother. Listening into "I want to live," the wish of Kuro who was born as the Holy Grail, she welcomes Chloe into the family along with Illya. Currently watches over Illya and Kuro's lives as a motheer.

Bazett Fraga McRemitz
VA:Hitomi Nabatame

As the Association's First Rank combat Specialist "Sealing Designation Enforcer", she was assigned with the collection of Class Cards prior to Rin and Luvia. The immense combat power is so much that Illya and Kuro can't win even if they combined their powers. In order to collect the Cards, she assaulted and destroyed Luvia's estate. She agreed to an agreement with Rin, and is currently in a cease-fire.

Caren Hortensia
VA:Ami Koshimizu

School nurse of Homurahara Academy's elementary division. Hates children, and is problematic in looking forward to someone in critical condition such as a coma will be carried in. Meanwhile, she calls Kuro's existence a "miracle" and is a mysterious figure that sounds as if she sees through everything.

Magical Ruby
VA:Naoko Takano

One of the special magical outfits Kaleidosticks, and provides endless magical powers to the wielder. With cunning use of words, it made Illya into a magical girl. Always high-spirited, and has the hobby of making fun of its master. Its functions are unexpectedly versatile, including how it can transform into a communication device.

Magical Sapphire
VA:Miyu Matsuki

One of the Kaleidosticks, and Magical Ruby's younger sister. Currently its master is Miyu. Unlike the older sibling Ruby, it basically keeps a very polite tone of voice. However, the fundamental personalities seem to be similar in that a cold blade of words can gouge someone's heart.

Shirou Emiya
VA:Noriaki Sugiyama

Illya's older brother-in-law that goes to the high school division of Homurahara Academy. For Illya, he is a kind and reliable older brother. Excels at cooking and laundry, and inadvertently takes the maid Sella's job away from her. Each time he does, he gets an earful.

VA:Haruhi Nanao

One of the maids for the Einzbern house. Takes care of all household chores, and is entrusted with Illya's studies in place of Illya's parents who are often overseas due to work. Pretty lenient against Illya, but pretty stern against Shirou.

VA:Miho Miyagawa

The other maid working for the Einzbern house. Does not seem to seriously work unlike Sella, and doesn't seem to be much of a maid seeing how she watches anime together with Illya.

Taiga Fujimura
VA:Miki Ito

Teacher at Homurahara Academy's elementary division, and homeroom teacher for Illya. A bright, kind-hearted person that is popular with her students, but when she gets angry, she sometimes yells in a forceful voice.

Tatsuko Gakumazawa
VA:Emiri Kato

One of the dumbest students in the academy. Her actions are always beyond common sense, and everyone pokes her about them.

Nanaki Moriyama
VA:Mariya Ise

In the quartet, she is the one that pokes at others. Her poking of Tatsuko tends to go over the top.

Suzuka Kurihara
VA:Kanae Ito

A mature guise makes her look intelligent, but apparently that's not exactly the case. Just like Nanaki, she is the one that pokes at others.

Mimi Katsura
VA:Satomi Sato

The most quiet of the quartet, but is good at communicating with others. She is the one with the most common sense.
