"I wish times like this would go on forever--".

Illya and company ended their fierce battles with the Heroic Spirit residing within the 8th class card. They return to vacation mode in order to enjoy what little there is left of summer vacation to its fullest! However, everyday life as such is ever so easily broken down.

Illya and company rush over to Mt. Enzo after some abnormalities, and before them appear unrealistic shadows. After a sudden battle, the skies sway. After all movements cease, Illya wakes up in a midwinter Fuyuki City - a parallel universe. It was the world where Miyu was born and raised in.

Protecting everything that is precious--. A battle to grant the magical girl's normal yet grand wish begins!


Illyasviel von Einzbern (VA: Mai Kadowaki)

A 5th grader who became a magical girl after being deceived by Magical Ruby. Ending the battle with the Dark Heroic Spirit residing within the 8th class card, she enjoys everyday life with Miyu, Kuro, and others! Or so she thought - soon she wanders into a parallel universe.

Tanaka (VA: Misato Fukuen)

A girl that Illya meets in the parallel universe. She always is in her gym shirt and bloomers. She has amnesia, and even her real name is uncertain. However, she doesn't worry about it, and is always cheerful. Has no common sense, and often sends people around her on a wild goose chase.

Miyu Edelfelt (VA: Kaori Nazuka)

The other magical girl who entered a pact with Magical Sapphire. Through the fight with the Dark Heroic Spirit, her relationship with Illya has basically become one and the same. She seems to recognize Angelica and Beatrice who say they were there to pick Miyu up......

Angelica (VA: Ryoko Shiraishi)

Beatrice Flowerchild (VA: Rie Kugimiya)

A Doll serving the Ainsworth clan. A sadist with a ferocious persona unfitting the small body. Wielder of the Berserker class card. After installation, she controls "the Thunder God's Hammer that Shatters All (Mjölnir)", a Noble Phantasm controlling thunder.
