SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! - 02The girls, escorted by Issei and Shirou, make it to the beach for fun and frivolity. Suzuka’s imagination goes wild with fujoshi thoughts about Issei and Shirou being together. The girls play with a beach ball in the water before Miyu, Ila, and Kuro go take a walk. As they enjoy the view of the ocean, they are shocked when Bazett shows up, selling ice candy (popsicles). They prepare for a fight, but Bazett assures them she’s not there to battle as she’s working a part-time job in order to pay for the damages in their last fight, leading the girls to realize how fearsome Luvia is. However, Bazett does “encourage” the girls to pay ¥500 each for a popsicle. The trio returns to the group, who’ve forgotten that this is supposed to be for Ilya’s, Kuro’s, and Miyu’s birthday.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! - 02Shirou takes them to a beach hut (海の家) restaurant, which happens to be owned by Tatsuko’s family. Miyu has never celebrated a birthday before. Shirou has a present for the three, but the party is interrupted by nearby construction. Checking it out, they discover Rin and Luvia supervising this, though they try to play it down. Bazett shows up, putting Rin and Luvia on guard. The other girls show up, where Tatsuko tells how Rin and Luvia mistreated her older sister Nanami, who apparently liked Shirou. Antics get out of hand with everyone ending up chasing Ilya. Ruby adds to things by giving Shirou truth serum, then a love potion, causing Sapphire to punish Ruby. Memories of 2 hours at the beach are erased and the group heads home.

Thoughts/Review:

This episode didn’t turn out to be nearly as ecchi as I thought it would be, considering it is a beach episode, but it did turn out pretty funny.

Because I’m reading the Genshiken Nidaime manga, Suzuka’s fujoshi obsession with yaoi paring of Issei and Shirou, complete with non-sexual drawings, made me laugh quite a bit. I don’t think the scene would have been as funny to me without knowing so much about fujoshi behavior from Genshiken Nidaime.

I also laughed out loud when Bazett showed up, selling popsicles and basically forced Ilya, Kuro, and Miyu to pay high prices for them.

The whole idea of someone that powerful being forced to work part-time jobs to pay for the damage she caused earlier was just delicious to me, especially since it showed how powerful Luvia is politically. However, even Luvia and Rin had a defensive reaction when they saw Bazett show up.

As an aside, Bazett being here suggests she’ll have a further role to play with the eighth card.

Tatsuko’s family showing up was pretty awesome in a humorous way. It was completely unexpected, and the way Suzuka and Nanaki responded to this made me laugh.

Continuing the laughs was Nanaki’s tale of what happened to her oneechan, Nanami. I think this is the first time that Rin and Luvia have been put on the same side when it came to Shirou.

I have to admit that things got a bit silly when everyone started chasing Ilya over all of the conflict that was breaking out.

Still, that did lead to another hilarious moment, where Ruby’s potion had everyone go to a zen state, save Tatsuko.

On the non-humorous side of things, I did like that normally pretty solemn Miyu had a fun birthday, enough so that she actually smiled.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! - 02

In the end, the ecchi content went down, the humor went way up, and we had Miyu show a happy smile. That’s a big win of an episode for me.

    One thing annoyed me xD… Tatsuko the girl who stripped was hit by a car in a comedic way… But in order to censor it they had her strip naked…
