The official website for the anime franchise based on Hiroshi Hirayama and Type-Moon's Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya manga revealed on Thursday that the title of the franchise's new original video anime is Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya: Prisma Phantasm. The site also revealed that the OVA will screen in theaters in Japan this year before shipping on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.
The staff also revealed a visual for the project:
The returning staff include Shin Oonuma as director at SILVER LINK., scriptwriters Hazuki Minase and Kenji Inoue, character designer Kazuya Hirata, and music production studio Lantis. The returning cast includes Mai Kadowaki as Illyasviel von Einzbern, Kaori Nazuka as Miyu Edelfelt, and Chiwa Saito as Chloe Von Einzburn.
Hiroyama's original 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.
Gekijōban Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya: Sekka no Chikai, the first anime film in the franchise, opened in Japan in August 2017.
