SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 3rei!! 05Kuro and Ilya get a portable heater/stove to work since the school is cold and drafty. Bazett has wards up on the walls around the school grounds. Tanaka falls off the roof of the school, but despite pain, has no injury. Ilya discovers a little girl named Erika (Erica) who can’t get down from the top of one of the wall. She refuses help, but Ilya comes to realize Erika’s refusal is just the reverse. Erika then needs to go to the bathroom, but Tanaka decides to tease the girl. Erika’s refusal to be beaten by Tanaka causes Tanaka to bite the girl. Eventually, Erika has an accident.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 3rei!! 05Ilya takes Erika into the nurse’s station to get her clothing dried and introduce her to Kuro and Bazett. Gil is not around, but he has created an onsen on the roof of the school with a Noble Phantasm. While they relax in the bath, Ilya attempts to get Tanaka to remember, but the girl’s first memories are encountering Ilya, something she views in a positive light. The only thing she’s sure of is that she must destroy the Ainsworth. After their bath, a shabby man that Erika identifies as her father comes to the gate. Ilya lets him in as Sapphire contacts Ruby with a warning about the head of the Ainsworth coming to them. Ilya repairs one of Bazett’s wards, which immediately starts an alarm. This causes Erika’s father to change his attitude as Ilya realizes this is Darius Ainsworth.

Thoughts/Review:

I have to say that this wasn’t nearly as ecchi as I feared it would be. Very glad for that, though it still has lots of ecchi in it.

Gil-kun proves to be amusing without doing much at all. Kuro gets annoyed with him for not given them information about the crater. However, it is understandable that if the event that caused the crater happened well before Gilgamesh was summoned, then I can see how he wouldn’t have the info.

The Noble Phantasm onsen Gil-kun has for use just made me laugh out loud. Sure, it is a convenient way to have an onsen episode.

Shifting to Tanaka, we still don’t know anything about her. I think her scribble on the wall is a clue of some sort. Initially, I thought it might be a face. It does look like it might be someone in a sombrero. Then I thought about her reaction to seeing the crater from the roof of the school. I think that Tanaka is actually the cause of the crater. I think the picture she drew is her going nuclear on the Ainsworth.

While Tanaka’s teasing and bickering with Erika (or Erica as the official subs call her) generated much of the humor for this episode, I liked how that humor couched a nice little clue about Erika’s identity. No wonder Tanaka hated Erika so.

Man, Erika is the most massive tsundere I’ve ever seen in anime or manga. She’s also adorable as all get out, though not as adorable as Tsumugi from (Sweetness and Lightning). 😉 Her constant denial of the need for help even though it is actually a plea for help makes her a bit more adorable.

As such, learning that Erika is Ainsworth shocked me greatly, but worked perfectly. Does she reveal herself to be something as nasty and powerful as Beatrice or Angelica? That cute, tsundere act was just to get passed Bazett’s defenses. I have to imagine that she had something to do with the one ward starting to come off the wall.

Darius Ainsworth showing up and looking almost like a hobo is another surprise to me. I suspect he’ll be insanely powerful, but he may not actually move on Ilya and company. I base this on the fact that he let Ilya, Tanaka, and Gil-kun go when Angelica and Beatrice could have finished them off. Well, maybe not Gil-kun. 😉

I’m glad we heard from Sapphire. That just leaves Rin and Luvia.

Finally, I had to laugh at how cheap Ilya is. Just call her “Onee-chan” and she’s yours for life. 😆 I’m so thankful the official subtitles use the Onee-chan honorific.

In the end, while there is some ecchi content that I didn’t discuss, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 3rei!! 05 focuses more on comedy and setting up the encounter with the head of the Ainsworth. Good times.

    Loli urination, done in an unfetished manner. Wonderful.

    Although I am concerned, from what’ve continuesly read retrieving Miyu is still ongoing, giving me haunting reminisce’s of the Arrancar saga from ‘Bleach’ that consumed the majority of the series, …

    It took 6 years, in a weekly serialisation. It wasn’t even enjoyable to bing most of this.
    And Illya doesn’t nearly the of powerful secondary characters, that the manga-ka can use to clean house with/accelerate the polt with.

      Didn’t look trough every bit of the Bleach spoiler as I didn’t read the manga and dropped the anime when the little plush dolls appeared. But….

      Did you mean that there are not powerful enough secondary characters to confront the enemies? If that it is, well, there is Gil-kun, Kuro, Bazzet and if that is not enough…..

      I put your Bleach spoilers in spoiler tags. 🙂

        @Astronerdboy I would contest them being catalogorized as spoilers, since watching any episode beyond a certain point, gives it away. Anything from Deicide is a spoiler, since that is when the plot finally moves to a conclusion.

  2. I have a feeling they will split up the arcs just like 2wei unless they cut down on a semi big plot line coming up that spanned at least 8 chapters but i can see them cutting down on a a lot of what that was because after that plot line it gets to the real good stuff and just builds from there.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I just checked to see if there were going to be ten episodes, as happened with all of the other Prisma Illya series, or if it would go full 12-13. Most sites aren’t saying, but I did see one reference to 12 episodes. I hope that’s the case.

      That being said, it wouldn’t surprise me if they follow the 2wei anime because as I understand it, the 3rei manga is still going on.

      • It is, but the recent 13 chapters is a full backstory ( hope that isn’t a spoiler lol) but it is dang awesome full of Fateservice so don’t fret.

        Then before that is 14 chapters of the big battle between the groups with guest appearances and so much awesome Fateservice xD (the echhi fanservice is pretty much gone) If they do it right they can maybe squeeze it all in but then again that might cut some good stuff so guess we will have to see

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          I don’t think the anime to date has cut out anything, have they? I know some comedy stories were picked up as OVA episodes.

          That being said, I suspect that even though the anime is basically an advertisement for the manga (and Type-Moon Fate franchise as a whole), it has strong enough ratings to keep the sponsors wanting to produce more. As such, the anime production company wouldn’t want to cut content that could be used in future episodes.

          • That’s true some of those specials are also anime exclusive, Though I don’t know how they can add some of these to OVA/Specials since the upcoming plots have to do with the storyline itself

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            Well, I look forward to seeing where things go. ^_^
