Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya: Episode 3

Recap: Miyu is a transfer student.

Iro’s Thoughts:
And then Miyu was a transfer student, and I screamed because this is the most cliche magical girl anime ever. We get the requisite montage of her being better than everyone at everything, because that’s what rival magical girls do, and of course she also magically conjures a giant mansion just across from Ilya’s house. At least we get to see Taiga freak out over food, I guess? It’s sad when the best thing in this show is a tertiary character. At least she’s acting in character, unlike Ilya. Hell, everyone from F/SN except Ilya is acting in character. It’s only our protagonist who’s acting like a fanfiction OC. Sigh.

Ruby and Sapphire also give us a boring infodump about the nature of Servants and the Holy Grail War whatever the fuck is going on in this city right now. While explaining Noble Phantasms and showing silhouettes of several, the Azoth Knife is included in there for some reason. That’s not even a Noble Phantasm! Put some fucking effort into this shit!

Basically, this entire episode (hell, this entire show) was a waste of time and that makes me very sad. It makes me ashamed to be a Fate/Stay Night and Type-Moon fan, and that’s probably the worst reaction possible to a show like this.

  1. This Illya is an imposter, Nanoha in disguise. I want to see Illya acting like Illya and I am starting to think that won’t be happening.

    • I nearly fell asleep watching this episode. That’s a good sign that Ilya needs to be more like Ilyasviel von Einsbern and be a murderous anti-hero by the next episode.
