SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! - 09Ilya freaks out over having gripped the boy Gilgamesh’s thing and he’s forced to get some clothing. Elsewhere, Caren takes damage from her observation spell due to the 8th card attempting to start the Holy Grail War. She’s forced to stop and while resting, explains that the activation being used isn’t the one from the Einzbern family. She further explains that the class cards appeared at a time when a section of land became a wasteland and Miyu appeared, leading to the belief that Miyu and the cards are from another world. Bazett, Kuro, Rin, and Luvia decide to race on with Bazett and Kuro using their speed to get way ahead.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! - 09Back with Ilya and Miyu, Ilya is surprised that Gilgamesh knows Miyu and that Miyu recognizes the boy. Miyu attacks him furiously but fails as Gilgamesh calls Miyu a princess from a parallel world. The boy’s gigantic, corrupted self captures Miyu and resists her attempts to free herself. Gilgamesh identifies Miyu as a near perfect Holy Grail that has taken on human form, unlike Ilya who’s a lesser Grail. Ilya snares the giant’s arm to prevent it from taking Miyu away, but she’s unable to save Miyu and eventually, the giant arm breaks free. Ilya again attempts to rescue Miyu, but instead, she gets Sapphire as Miyu gives up, apologizing to Ilya and asking Ilya to destroy her along with the monstrosity.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! - 09With Miyu captured, the boy Gilgamesh merges with his giant self and appears to kill Ilya. However, it was an illusion, created by Sapphire and the Assassin card. Ilya gets in and slaps the boy part of the mass. She’s almost killed by Gilgamesh’s weapons, but is saved by Kuro at the last second. Kuro wants to know what happened and thinks Ilya is giving up. Ilya isn’t, so Kuro works with Bazett to attack the 8th card body mass. Ilya chats with Sapphire and thinks back to when Miyu saved her from Berserker. Ilya understands what to do as Gilgamesh has the giant body produce a sword that can mow down forests. Ilya shows up and using the power of Sapphire and Ruby, she breaks the massive bladed weapon. Gilgamesh is stunned by this. As she continues to transform, she yells to Miyu that she’s going in there drag Miyu out of that body and slap her.

Thoughts/Review:

After the reprise of the ecchi humor around Ilya grabbing Gilgamesh’s “noodle” by accident and squeezing it, the episode pretty much sticks to plot after that.

The fact that Miyu and the Class Cards are from another world didn’t surprise me since I’d been thinking for a while that this must be the case. I don’t recall if I thought that Miyu was the Holy Grail (I don’t have time to research that at the moment), but it made sense that she would be since she seemed like another version of Ilya to some degree.

It was sad seeing Miyu give up like she did. However, one has to have the person to be rescued, eh? 😉

As to Ilya, she showed some nice if dangerous moves, especially using Ruby and Sapphire to create an illusion of herself so that she could get in and slap Gilgamesh. I enjoyed the moment, though without Kuro saving her at the last second, she would have died.

The other nice moment for Ilya was when she came to a resolve to face this powerful enemy and dual wield Ruby and Sapphire so that she is able to face the Gilgamesh monstrosity and even destroy his insanely large sword. Even though it wasn’t meant to be funny, I couldn’t help but chuckle when Ilya angrily vowed to yank Miyu out of the Gilgamesh body mass in order to slap her for giving up and wanting to die.

If I had more time, I’m sure I could find more to write about. As it is, I rather enjoyed this episode and look forward to seeing how Ilya pulls everything off.
