Fate/Kaleid Liner: Prisma Illya 2wei! (2014/Sentai Blu-ray Set)

Picture: A+ Sound: B+ Extras: C Episodes: A-

One month ago, Illya and Miyu became magical girls and were tasked with collecting magic cards imbued with the heroic spirits. After saving the world, you would think they would get a break. But it turns out not everything was fixed, after fixing certain ley lines Illya has to deal with a troublesome side effect, a Kuro (dark) version of herself in Fate/Kaleid Liner: Prisma Illya 2wei! (2014).

It's tough being a normal Japanese schoolgirl on top of also being a magical girl, even more so when Illya find she has Kuro (dark) version of herself running around with ALL her powers. Kuro represents Illya's unspoken and secret desires, include Shirou, Illya's brother (not related by blood). As Kuro wrecks havoc on Illya's school and romance life, new adventures appear for Illya and her friends.

Based on the Fate Stay Night series, which you can read more about at this link...


...Prisma Illya 2wei is like a comic parody with magical girls and romance. It makes fun of all the stereotypes of 'magical girls' mixed with fan-service and schoolgirl fantasies.

The outstanding 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image on all the episodes stuns across both discs and is among Sentai's best, while the lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Japanese Stereo plays better than the English version and is pretty dynamic throughout, both having Pro Logic-like surrounds you can try out despite being warm and full on its 2-channel own. Extras include shorts, TV spots, clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
