Kadokawa began streaming 15- and 30-second versions of the Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya anime's first teaser promotional video on Friday. The adaptation of Hiroshi Hiroyama's Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya manga is slated to premiere in Japan this summer.
Shin Oonuma (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts, Kokoro Connect, Dusk maiden of Amnesia) is directing the series at the anime Studio Silver Link. The anime's main cast will be reprising their roles from a previous drama CD.
Mai Kadowaki and Kana Ueda are reprising their roles as Illyasviel von Einzbern (Illya) and Rin Tohsaka respectively from Fate/stay night and Fate/Zero. Kaori Nazuka (Code Geass' Nunnally, Eureka Seven's Eureka) will star as Miyu Edelfelt, Shizuka Itou (A Certain Magical Index's Kaori Kanzaki, Hayate the Combat Butler's Hinagiku Katsura) will play Luviagelita Edelfelt (Luvia), Naoko Takano (Nadesico's Megumi Reinard, Brighter than the Dawning Blue's Midori Tooyama) will play Magical Ruby, and Miyu Matsuki (Hayate the Combat Butler's Isumi Saginomiya, Hidamari Sketch's Yoshinoya-sensei) will play Magical Sapphire.
Hiroyama's manga spin-off re-imagines the Fate/stay night character Illyasviel von Einzbern in an alternate universe as a magical girl. The manga ran in Kadokawa Shoten's Comp Ace from 2007-2008. Hiroyama then launched two sequel manga series: Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya Zwei! from 2009-2012 and the most recent, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya Drei!!, last year.
