Just days after getting the second extended preview for the second season of Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya, a third one has now dropped. It was recently revealed that the summer 2014 series will permiere on July 9th, 2014 and we got a couple of images in the past week from the first episode as well. The main cast is returning and the additional casting has occurred with Chiwa Saito joining as Kuro, Hitomi Nabatame has signed on as Bazett Fraga McRemitz while Ami Koshimizu will be playing Caren Hortensia.
With chief director Shin Oonuma overseeing things, the series is directed by Masato Jinbo based on series composition by Kenji Inoue and scripts by Hazuki Minase. Character designs are being handled by Nozomi Ushijima with animation production being done at SILVER LINK.
Plot concept: Illyaviel von Einzbern seems like a normal school girl, but all that changes when a magic wand named Ruby decides that young Illya is the perfect choice to be her new “master.” On the plus side, that means Illya can use Ruby to gain magical powers. On the negative, Ruby’s previous owner, Rin Tosaka, isn’t exactly thrilled to be de-wanded, especially since she’s just accepted an assignment from the Wizard Zelretch to collect seven magical Class Cards holding legendary spirits inside. However, since the unbending wand is sticking to its decision, the only solution is for Illya to take up the task while Rin supervises. Meanwhile, another girl named Miyu has been chosen by the magic wand Sapphire as HER new master, much to the irritation of Sapphire’s previous master, Rin’s arch rival Luvia Edelfelt! Exactly what kind of plan are the wands conjuring up? It’s a mystical fantasy set in an alternate universe to the popular Fate/Stay Night franchise, in which some very familiar looking characters end up in some very different and completely unexpected situations! Prepare to be en-spelled as six magic-challenged maidens hit the road to adventure in Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya!
