posted on by Andrew Osmond
On Monday November 2, Anime Limited will release Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya on both Blu-ray and DVD. Hiroshi Hiroyama's original 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.
Shin Oonuma (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts, Dusk maiden of Amnesia) directed the anime at SILVER LINK Kenji Inoue (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) supervised 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) designed the characters, while Tatsuya Katou (Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, Kämpfer, Medaka Box) scored the music. In addition, Takashi Sakamoto (episode director on Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts 2, C³, Dusk maiden of Amnesia) served as chief director.
MVM will also release the series Flowers of Evil. The "corrupt pure-love story" revolves around Takao Kasuga (Shinichiroh Ueda), a bookish boy who loves the poems of Charles Baudelaire (the original author of the poetry collection Les Fleurs du mal or Flowers of Evil). One day after school, he discovers and steals the gym clothes of Nanako Saeki (Yōko Hikasa), the girl he has a crush on. However, he learns that Sawa Nakamura (Mariya Ise), a girl he loathes, happens to catch him in the act. Nakamura blackmails Kasuga into a "contract," or else she will reveal his secret.
Hiroshi Nagahama (Mushi-Shi, Detroit Metal City) directed the series at the studio ZEXCS, who used a nontraditional process to produce the series.
