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.
