STORY
On the outside, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya just seems to be a magical girl parody of the Fate series, and in many ways it is. Though, it manages to stand on its own with a story I can take seriously. The story starts off as a monster of the week show, but like any good magical girl show, it deviates from the formula. With focus on the internal conflict with Illya and external conflict with a new character Miyu. Though, I found the two conflicts to be cliche and predictable (Rehash of MGLN). The whole conflicts between rival magical girls and personal read more

Fate/Kaleid is something that happens when you take a seemingly stupid idea and turn it into something that's close to spectacular.
Now, before I get started, I just want to point something out; A lot of people disliked this series, or dropped it in the first few episodes because it's a Fate/ series... turned Magical Girl. I did the same. When it was first airing, I dropped it, not because I didn't think it was interesting, I just didn't feel like watching it at the time. I, too, think that turning the Fate/ series into a Magical Girl series is a, well, stupid idea. I read more

when I first saw Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya as being a newcomer to the Fate/ universe I wasn't expecting much but oh boy my expectations were blown away the minute I hit play.

The story has a magical girl vibe where you make a contract to fight evil and become magical girls but keeping true to the Fate/ universe and its lore with most of the enemies Illya, Miyu, Rin and Luvia fight make up the 7 classes of servants from the Holy Grail War. all in told the story is great and the pacing is spot on as everything flows really well.

The art is beautiful read more

Few animes had the impact, drama and downright manliness of Fate/Zero, a Type-Moon production that blew away all my expectations for an anime. With this entry in the Fate series, I went in expecting something big. The bar set by the previous series was huge and I'm not surprised that this fell short (in fact, why even compare the two?) . However, what's here is a solid MG anime with a dash of Fate thrown in.

The story is told is a very straight forward fashion. Through the perspective of Illyasviel von Eizenbern, the viewer gets a blend of mediocre middle school drama, heart-pounding battles read more

Recommendations

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya is basically Fate/Stay night meets Cardcaptor Sakura. Just on the more serious side and with epic battles.
reportRecommended by komic - Add to favorites
Both Madoka and Fate/kaleid are rather dark magical girl anime that deconstruct the genre.The main character has to face the dangers of actually being a magical girl. Several of the characters between them are also similar.
Both series are Type-Moon related franchise so expect some of the same characters to pop up here and there. But more importantly, both series are VERY funny for their humor. In fact, both series are portrayed as parodies with no direct/serious plot to the whole.

There is a lot of funny dialogues as well as comedy going on. There is also the school life background where even more comedy ensures.

Verdict: watch for the humor and entertainment rather than taking either series seriously.
Everything starts off cute and girly, then an accident happens where the main character discovers that she's a special person related to supernatural and non-human events, but makes new friends and starts to live their new lives as normal, and then the dark plot twist happens
Both girls are just by chance chosen to be magical girls and they have to fight monsters to save their city and collect magical objects.
In both shows, young(ish) girls enter an alternate world, transform into magical girls, and fight enemies.
