The folks at Peppermint Anime in Germany brought out the Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya: Vow in the Snow film back in December 2022 but it was one they didn’t do a lot of promotion for through clips. At least until now. The distributor has rolled out the first clip of it in German, which the show works really well in, to help bolster and support the previously released DVD, Blu-ray, and digital editions that came out. Check it out below..
Check out our review of the film.
The film follows up the previous TV seasons we had where the first three ran for ten episodes previously with the fourth set at twelve. They’re directed by Shin Oounuma based on scripts by Hazuki Minase with character designs by Kazuya Hirata. Silver Link worked on the animation production itself. The cast includes Kaori Nazuka as Miyu Edelfelt, Mai Kadowaki as Illyasviel von Einzbern, Aya Endo as Gil, Chiwa Saito as Chloe Von Einzbern, Hitomi Nabatame as Bazett Fraga McRemitz, Kana Ueda as Rin Tohsaka, Misato Fukuen as Tanaka, Naoko Takano as Magical Ruby, Rie Kugimiya as Beatrice Flowerchild, Ryoko Shiraishi as Angelica, Shizuka Itou as Luviagelita Edelfelt, Sumire Morohoshi as Erika and Yumi Kakazu as Magical Sapphire.
The work comes from the property that deals with the alternate world setting from the Fate/stay night universe as written and illustrated by Hiroshi Hiroyama. The series began in 2007 and has run several short-run series with each working its own progression and theme while tied to the larger work.
Sentai Filmworks has licensed the first three seasons and released the first series on DVD and Blu-ray in bilingual form.
Plot Concept: Despite his adoptive father’s warnings that the girl found in the remnants of a destroyed city is too dangerous to be considered anything other than a tool or weapon, Shiro Emiya comes to treat Miyu as a younger sister. But when Shiro relaxes his guard and Miyu starts normal school, the Ainsworth family and their agents swoop in, kidnapping the girl with the goal of sacrificing her! Faced with the realization that Miyu’s ability to do good will always be equaled by her capacity for destruction, Shiro must attempt to both rescue his adopted sister, and decide how to confront the threat that her powers will always pose. The lines between noble deeds and monstrous acts, and between hero and fanatic, will be the breaking points in the epic feature film FATE/KALEID LINER PRISMA ILLYA: VOW IN THE SNOW!
