posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
A stage panel at the Machi Asobi vol.19 event on Saturday announced that the Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya anime franchise, based on Hiroshi Hiroyama's manga, is getting a sequel anime project. Voice actress Mai Kadowaki confirmed the announcement on Twitter on Saturday.
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 television anime premiered in 2013. The second season, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei!, premiered in 2014, followed by the third season titled Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! in 2015. The fourth and latest season, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!!, premiered in July 2016.
Sentai Filmworks released the first three seasons on home video. Crunchyroll streamed the fourth season as it aired, and it also streamed the first three seasons.
