    Magical girls and Fate/zero fight scenes?!?
    Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA is a show that I wasn't expecting to like all that much. A typical magical girl show that happens to be based in the fate/stay night universe. I was very very wrong. Being a fan of the original F/SN visual novel as well as the F/Z anime (lets face it F/SN anime sucked and "unlimited bladeworks" Wasn't too good either), I thought I would give this show the benefit ...

    A fun yet dark Magical Girl anime with lots of twists and VERY cool graphics
    Don't be deterred. Give it a chance and this series WILL grow on you. It certainly isn't as dark and morbid as the other Fate series but it has it's moments. It fits in well with the universe in my opinion and broadens the audience and age range.

    The first episode is kinda "meh"... though Illya is truly adorable. The two "adult" magical girls are annoying most of the time - especially Luvia - ...

    This isn't Fate/Zero, Fate/Stay Night
    Don't disappoint yourself in thinking its a serious spin off of the fate series.
    This is a magical girl stand alone. With pretty much the only similarities being the cards.
    If you're into moe, ecchi, magical girl comedies, you've come to the right place. It has all the qualities you're looking for.
    If not, you might just want to move along.

    For those of you complaining. Clearly. the fate ...

    Your Fate? Remedial Magic!
    "Attention, please! For those of you who have never before seen--or those old fans who require a refresher course in--the magical girl genre, please prepare yourselves!" At least, that is what I keep expecting to hear while watching this series, which indeed seems to embody the entire genre. This one show covers all the bases: magical cards; magical gems; magical spells; magical beings; magic ...

    Relax, the cops already know
    This show has lots of lolis. Very good lolis. The best lolis, even. It's also surprisingly engaging, considering the entire appeal is a potent yuri factor - especially more so once Kuro is introduced (if you deny this you are a fervent liar). Regardless, all three main heroines are different and likeable in their own right.

    Also the fact that they literally named the dark-skinned girl "black" ...

    Ultimate Magical Girl
    While Prisma Illya is part of the Fate franchise, it takes place in an alternate Fate universe where things turned out much differently for the characters featured in the previous Fate series.

    The show centers on Illyasviel von Eisenbern, who, through a twist of circumstance, unexpectedly becomes a magical girl. The rest of the series follows her life and adventures as such. While the show ...

    Definitely not a Mainstream Fate Title
    Don't come in here expecting to see a Fate/zero or a Fate/stay night style show. A lot of people don't realize that a lot of type moon stories are actually in alternate realities. Fate/stay and Fate/zero are the only mainstream stories with anime adaptations. The rest are all alternate realities. This one happens to be a loli and it's not too bad.

    Its cute and funny with an underling seriousness
    I was a big fan of fate zero and this anime is related to it, however this anime is its own animal. U really cant compare it to fate zero because its really a different genera. Its a cute comedy anime with some occasional great action. Its a hybrid. ( a very good one ) and I would say the thing that sets it apart is the fact that the lives of the magical girls are often in very real danger of ...

    A intrepid adventure
    At first you think this show will be about Illya's friends which you see from the previews. However, if you have not seen either series before the show may seem like a normal anime. Which in reference it might not be a good idea to watch either before you watch this one.

    In comparison thus far the show is quiet good. I like Illya's character and that she's embarrassed to do the normal magic ...
