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, including Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya Drei!! in 2012.
The first television anime premiered in 2013, followed by the second in 2014 and the third last July. Crunchyroll streamed all three previous series as they aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed all three series for home video release in North America.
