Illyasviel von Einzbern is a normal schoolgirl in Japan. She lives with her overachieving nice guy older brother Shirou Emiya and her two maids, her parents are perpetually out of the country, and she has fanciful dreams of using magic to make her dreams of love with Shirou come true. Enter fierce rivals Rin Tohsaka and Luviagelita Edelfelt, two Magi who have been sent to Japan by Zelretch the Wizard Marshall, Master of Parallel Worlds, with the powerful sentient Kaleidosticks to collect the mysterious Class Cards and clean up their mess. After getting fed up with their constant infighting, one Kaleidostick, Magical Ruby, senses Illya's fleeting dream of magic and leaves Rin for her, tricking her into becoming a magical girl. Now Illya is being forced by Rin to collect the dangerous Class Cards in her place. But perhaps more dangerous still are Illya's own mysteries that may have unknowingly attracted Ruby to her.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya is one of those anime series where people may tends to look away just because for what it is. You know that saying that goes “don't judge a book by its cover?” Well, I guess some anime fans seems to do just the opposite of that and take the cover for granted. This is one of those anime series that might bring some disappointment at first especially to those loyal fans of the Type-Moon franchise. Series like Fate/Stay Night, Garden of Sinners, and a more recent example of Fate/Zero has a stance of that serious atmosphere going on. What does Fate/kaleid liner 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

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

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

Anime: Cardcaptor Sakura
Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya is basically Fate/Stay night meets Cardcaptor Sakura. Just on the more serious side and with epic battles.

Anime: Soul Eater NOT!
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

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
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. 
reportRecommended by Fujaku
Anime: Carnival Phantasm
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.

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha
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.

Anime: Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou
At first it looks like it's cute girls doing cute things, but its quite far from that.Both anime have slight hints of yuri and have a large amount of girls. The main lolis are voiced by the same VA. Cards are the source of power. They have to fight monsters with the power of cards. Both have a rather dark atmosphere.
