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. Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya ran in Kadokawa Shoten's Comp Ace from 2007 to 2008. Hiroyama then launched several sequel manga series.
The first anime adaptation premiered in 2013 followed by the second in 2014. Crunchyroll streamed both series as they aired in Japan and Sentai Filmworks licensed both series for home video release in North America.
The new series will premiere on July 24 on Tokyo MX TV and other channels.
