Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA 2wei! Episode 02 REVIEW
Fate/kaleid liner プリズマ☆イリヤ
Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! – 02

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! - 02Ilya hears her fortune for Cancer on TV, which warns her of a bad day. Ruby offers to give a real fortune, which are all accurate, but end up being warnings as all kinds of bad things put Ilya’s life in danger on the way to school. Once at school, she collapses and is sent home. Miyu escorts her there, where they come under attack from Dark Ilya, using her Archer powers. The two attempt to flee, but Dark Ilya manages to keep up. Dark Ilya takes Miyu out of the fight with a deep kiss. Ilya doesn’t have the power she had before, but she manages to strip Dark Ilya, forcing her to flee.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! - 02At Luvia’s house, she, Miyu, Rin, and Ilya have a meeting to discuss the situation. Rin decides that they need to capture Dark Ilya, so in a nearby wooded area, Ilya is strung up from a tree as bait over a banquet table full of food. Dark Ilya arrives, and decides to go for the bait, knowing it is a trap. She easily escapes being bound, then eludes Miyu’s attack with the Caster Card’s Nobel Phantasm,  Rule Breaker. Dark Ilya causes Rin and Luvia to be bound, then disarms Miyu, sending Sapphire far away so that Miyu transforms back to normal form. Ilya appears to give up, but as Dark Ilya approaches, she falls into a disguised bog that nullifies her mage craft abilities, leading Luvia and Rin to gloat.

Thoughts/Review:

What the flaming fire is going on here? I know I was warned about the increased ecchi content, but I honestly didn’t expect thirty seconds of Dark Ilya and Miyu making out as if the start of some loli, yuri hentai title. Before now, I thought it was only in hentai were a girl who doesn’t want to be kissed in fact open her mouth wide to play tonsil hockey with the one kissing her, making sure to get extra tongue in the process. *_*

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! - 02

That aside, I have to admit that I found myself laughing out loud at Ilya’s misfortune at the beginning of the episode, even though I was sure Dark Ilya was the cause of it all. Silver Link played it for all it was worth, so that every time Ruby printed out a new omikuji to tell Ilya’s updated fortune, I laughed even more.  Plus, having Ruby have these slips of paper print out from her underside made it look very wrong, and thus very funny.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! - 02

It was amusing to see Rin and Luvia in agreement and even acting alike in this episode. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the pair get along so well. (And, we got the reason why Rin is Luvia’s maid.)

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! - 02

While I’m still on the subject of amusing, what was up with the school nurse? She was twisted in a funny kind of way. I figure she’s a character from the Fate/stay night franchise, but I just don’t know her.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! - 02

As to the plot, I’m not sure why Dark Ilya would want to kill Ilya. Sadly, the spoiler OP/ED shows that Dark Ilya will be friends with Ilya and Miyu, so there’s not much drama there other than how they get from where they are now, to where they will be.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! - 02

I had planned to write a bit more, but work got in the way (darn problems), so I have to end this now to get some sleep. I could have done without the loli-yuri love fest in this one, but otherwise, a good episode.

    The nurse is the character of Carren Hortensia, who happens to be Kirei’s daughter, so I would expect her to be more important then she appears.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Whoa! Kirie was fruitful and multiplied, eh? That’s freaky.

      • cold_menthol says:

        Whoa, a mixed-up of characters here? Or maybe just a simple typo?

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          *lol* Typo. Kirei. Kirie is from UQ Holder and since I’d written a lot about her lately, I guess my fingers just spelled her name by flipping the two letters. ^_^;

    Wall of text incoming. Alright, where to begin? 😀

    I forgot to mention this last episode, since you’ve asked, but Ilya was able to install Archer because, as it was mentioned earlier in the episode, Luvia and Rin split the cards they captured and Rin carried her cards in her pocket. It isn’t shown very clearly, but Ilya activated the Archer card when she flew past Miyu, Rin and Luvia.

    As I’ve said in the review before, this episode covers chapter 2 and 3. There were mostly fights, so Silver Link can understandably cover these chapters more quickly.

    Btw, your summary is missing the scene after the ED.

    There was a hidden gag in the manga when Ilya was running away from the dogs. Look at the dogs and find the one standing out: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/61420/fatekaleid-liner-prisma%E2%98%86illya-2wei_v01_ch02_by_suimasen-scans/6

    (It’s http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/Neco-Arc one of Type-Moon’s mascots)

    While I’m still on the subject of amusing, what was up with the school nurse? She was twisted in a funny kind of way. I figure she’s a character from the Fate/stay night franchise, but I just don’t know her.

    She’s from Fate/hollow ataraxia. Her name is Caren Hortensia (the “H” is soundless, like in French).

    If you’re wondering what Ilya said, when the football exploded (last panel): http://www.batoto.net/read/_/61420/fatekaleid-liner-prisma%E2%98%86illya-2wei_v01_ch02_by_suimasen-scans/11

    Man, I just love Kuro Ilya’s voice (Chiwa Saito). I am playing too many games/watching too many anime involving her voice actress. ^_^ I believe this is the third Type-Moon character Chiwa Saito voiced (Kuro Ilya, Extra-Caster and Misaya Reiroukan). She also voiced Anya in Negima if I remember correctly.

    That’s probably farfetched, but Kuro Ilya is perhaps another reference to Saber Alter. Before she was called Saber Alter, she was referred in source material as Kuro/Dark/Black Saber. And yes, as Kuro Ilya pointed it out, she was the reason for Ilya’s misfortune, since she wanted to make it look like a natural death.

    I’m not sure if it’s just a general gag when Ilya offered Kuro Ilya a lollipop or if it’s a reference to Nanoha (http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/ebushyu/18022976/77668/77668_original.png), where Fate is offering a lollipop to Levi, but it worked there (http://oi41.tinypic.com/sxyd8w.jpg). Too bad Ilya, too bad. ^_^

    Dark Ilya takes Miyu out of the fight with a deep kiss. […]What the flaming fire is going on here?

    Oh, she had a reason for this (besides showing the viewers some fanservice). And it’s not because she is into Miyu and likes her (or maybe that’s another reason).

    (And, we got the reason why Rin is Luvia’s maid.)

    It’s elaborated in a special chapter in 2wei (http://www.batoto.net/read/_/61553/fatekaleid-liner-prisma%E2%98%86illya-2wei_v01_ch09.5_by_suimasen-scans), but that chapter was already animated and added for the bluray release of E1ns, see the Youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNYIVLkiM8M). The fansub group loligeddon subbed the specials, if I remember correctly.

    Some German again in the second half of this episode. Kuro Ilya says hello to Sapphire in German and I want to note that UTW mistranslated Luvia’s spell. As it’s noted in UTW’s comments, it was Faust der Schwerkraft (fist of gravity), not Feste der Schwerkraft. (Feste in general is either the plural of Fest, which means festival, or – and that would make more sense – fortress. Either way, Luvia said Faust, so that point is moot.)

    Kuro Ilya is of course a big reference to FSN-Archer. She is making use of Archer’s powers here. The most obvious one is naturally his tracing, but she can calmly and quickly analyze these dangerous situations not only because she’s smart, but probably also because of Archer’s personal skill Eye of the Mind (True) . It’s basically an ability that is born from lots of battle experience and will greatly increase one’s success and survival rate in battle. FZ-Lancer, Diarmuid, possessed the same ability. In both cases, this ability is a suitable replacement for their poor luck parameter (lowest rank, E).

    Kuro Ilya can also easily identify weapons like the Rule Breaker because that is also another ability of Archer’s. Or she had this weapon already stored inside Archer’s memory. Doesn’t really matter.

    The weapon Kuro Ilya traced, Nine Lives, was FSN-Berserker’s Noble Phantasm. Nine Lives was actually the bow Heracles used to kill the Hydra, but another Noble Phantasm of his, that bears the same name, also exists. Kuro Ilya doesn’t trace the bow, hence the added Fake in its name. That, and maybe also because it was traced, so either way it’s a fake.

    Interesting note, Kanshou and Bakuya together increase the user’s physical and magical resistence. Well, Ilya is also quite weak, so there’s that. I like the projection animation. It doesn’t look as bad as I thought and there isn’t too much unfitting CG in this episode. I also love how lighthearted the series still is. Even when Ilya is constantly in danger this episode, they still crack jokes.

    Btw, I take back what I said last year (that Shirou’s tracing resembles the First Magic). That was based on a misinterpretation of a translation (since his ability was referred to as magic, but it was mirror-moon’s translation and they translated magecraft, majutsu, as magic and True Magic was called sorcery). Rin called Shirou a freak and not a magus, because she noticed his Reality Marble.

    Seeing the subs of this episode reminded me of how some parts in the manga are partially incorrectly translated. So glad to see a much better translation. Well, shouldn’t complain when my own Japanese isn’t really better.

    Another hint regarding Kuro Ilya: Look at her eyes.

    That’s it for now. Might have forgotten something, but I guess I’ll add it later then.

      Yeesh! You are right. I stopped it because I wasn’t paying attention to the time remaining. ^_^; Wow. Mama and Papa were in there. How very interesting. Thanks for letting me know. ^_^

      Ooops. ^_^;;;;

      If you’re wondering what Ilya said, when the football exploded (last panel):

      Dark Ilya swooped through?

      Oh, she had a reason for this (besides showing the viewers some fanservice). And it’s not because she is into Miyu and likes her (or maybe that’s another reason).

      Well, it took Miyu out of action for that moment, unless you are suggesting it will have long term implications.

      Man, I had no idea about those shorts. I will have to try to take a gander at them. Thanks for that info!

      The weapon Kuro Ilya traced, Nine Lives, was FSN-Berserker’s Noble Phantasm.

      Considering the size of the weapon, I wondered about that.

      I also love how lighthearted the series still is. Even when Ilya is constantly in danger this episode, they still crack jokes.

      As do I. I didn’t get around to mentioning it, but Miyu’s bouncy method of flight had me laughing as well in this episode.

      Anyway, as always, thanks a ton for taking the time to provide the great info!

  3. Farray says:

    Btw, I found it amusing how the fortune telling at the beginning said Cancer’s lucky item today is a red stick. Ultimately, Ruby saved Ilya’s life multiple times that day, lol.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I actually missed that connection. ^_^; But you are right, the red stick saved Ilya a lot. ^_^

      • Farray says:

        Yeah, sometimes the most random stuff seems to get referenced later on. When I read 2wei the first time I was laughing so much, since the bottomless bog in the first chapter turned out to be a Chekhov’s Gun two chapters later. ^_^

  4. Aki says:

    Lol the kissing was so over the top >.<

  5. mr. Poneis says:

    It was an awesome arc in the manga indeed… All the way to the loli’s ecchi… cause Ilya’s comebacks are the best! Next to Miyu’s reactions

    though it makes me wonder why dogs when in the manga were cats…

    The paradoxes with the original series… the one most tricking is the fact that in this dimension Illy’s is a Cancer insted of a Gemini…

    Até mais ver
    mr. Poneis

    • Farray says:

      It was still dogs. The only cat was Neko Arc, and that was just a hidden gag Hiroyama added for those who recognize her.

      The paradoxes with the original series… the one most tricking is the fact that in this dimension Illy’s is a Cancer insted of a Gemini…

      I wouldn’t really say that’s a paradox. More like a change of birthdays in an alternate universe. I would ask otherwise, using this logic, why Illya seems to be around five years younger than Shirou in this universe.

      • mr. Poneis says:

        My memory is vague and my attention is poor… since I didn´t get to see Nekoarc, the only familiar pursuer I just erased the dogs altogether… what a selective memory

        Paradox isn´t really a good word to point as Fate/sn Illya being born in May/30th and Kaleid Liner Illya being born in July/20th… my wildest guess for know is to tell Prism Illya apart from the Illya that brutally dies in UBW (poor thing)

        About the Age difference is more like cause in this universe they really prevented the Graal war is all about Illya’s upbringing and and Shiro adoption being influenced by the outcome as well…

        até mais ver

      Eventually, I’ve got to read the manga. ^_^;

    Not sure if anyone mentioned it to you but if you want to see how Rin became a maid you should check out the 4th Blu-Ray special. The thing is short, some 6 minutes.
