Fate/Kaleid Liner: Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! (2015/Sentai Blu-ray Set)

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

It's summer break Illya and the girls just want to have fun, partying and dating boys (ok, just Shirou really), but as magical girls it is their jobs to collect magic cards and when a mysterious 8th card appears, it is up to them to save the day in Fate/Kaleid Liner: Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! (2015).

Illya and Miyu were once rival magical girls for magic cards and Kuro was once their enemy, but now they want to just live as normal girls and rather be friends and rivals in love. They also want to have fun, go to school and fall in love with their adoptive (but non-blood related) brother Shirou (ok, maybe they are not so normal). But as magical girls they must collect cards to keep them from falling into evil hands and forces, but they discover a mysterious card is more powerful than any card they had collected before.

Based on the Fate Stay Night series, Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! is like a comic parody with magical girls and romance. It makes fun of all the stereotypes of 'magical girls' mixed with tons of fanservice and schoolgirl fantasies gone wild, picking up where last Fate/Kaleid series left off.

Once again, as was the case with the last set, the outstanding 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image on all the episodes stuns across both discs and is also 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 this time include Herz! Shorts, Japanese Promos, commercials, clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
