Hiroshi Hiroyama's original Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya manga 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 to 2008. Hiroyama then launched two sequel manga series: Fate/Kaleid liner Prisma Illya Zwei! from 2009 to 2012 and the most recent, Fate/Kaleid liner Prisma Illya Drei!!, last year.
Shin Oonuma (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts, Dusk maiden of Amnesia) is directing the anime at Silver Link. Kenji Inoue (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) is supervising the series scripts being written by Hazuki Minase (C³). Nozomi Ushijima (animation director on Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts 2, C³, Dusk maiden of Amnesia episodes) is designing the characters, while Tatsuya Katou (Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, Kämpfer, Medaka Box) is scoring the music. In addition, Takashi Sakamoto (episode director on Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts 2, C³, Dusk maiden of Amnesia) is serving as chief director.
The anime's main cast are reprising their roles from a previous drama CD. Mai Kadowaki and Kana Ueda play Illyasviel von Einzbern (Illya) and Rin Tohsaka respectively from Fate/Stay night and Fate/Zero. Kaori Nazuka (Code Geass' Nunnally, Eureka Seven's Eureka) plays Miyu Edelfelt, Shizuka Itou (A Certain Magical Index's Kaori Kanzaki, Hayate the Combat Butler's Hinagiku Katsura) plays Luviagelita Edelfelt (Luvia), Naoko Takano (Nadesico's Megumi Reinard, Brighter than the Dawning Blue's Midori Tooyama) plays Magical Ruby, and Miyu Matsuki (Hayate the Combat Butler's Isumi Saginomiya, Hidamari Sketch's Yoshinoya-sensei) plays Magical Sapphire.
Singer Choucho (Hyouka, Heaven's Memo Pad) is performing the anime's opening theme song. The anime will premiere first on the Nico Nico video streaming website before its first television broadcast in July.
