Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya Episode 6: Unlimited Ilya Works

IT’S HAPPENING.

Well, shit. I thought my body was ready. And you know what? It wasn’t.

To be honest, I’m not actually sure what just happened. I mean, one moment Ilya was sitting there crying, and my heart went out to her…seeing Ilya sad makes me sad too. And after what happened to her in the UBW route, I never want to see her anywhere close to despair again ;_; Literally everything was in ruins, except that red bridge where Gilgamesh fought Rider and his manly charging. And then…a seal of some sort broke? I’m guessing it’s a latent power, which Ilya used to directly install the Class Card into her, without Ruby’s help. While unconscious, somehow. It was already pretty cool at that point. Then Kawasumi Ayako did a bit more grunting, and suddenly…RHO AIAS.

Oh god that entire fight sequence was epic. I almost feel sorry for Saber. Seriously guys – Ilya best girl, or Ilya best girl? You can have pictures instead of words this time, no words can describe this. We didn’t just get Kanshou and Bakuya. We got Overedge. With the feathers!

THE FEATHERS!

Ilya-tan <3 Look at that badassery. There’s even Caladbolg II!

EX-CALIBURRRRRRR!

I think I’m gar for Ilya now…wait is that even possible?

Though having Avalon too would be far too overpowered.

Okay I lied, I do want to talk about stuff. Firstly, that Emiya OST! It’s been Emiya family tradition to have remixes of the same song playing while they fight at the peak of their awesomeness, and finally Ilya’s been inducted in. At long last! To be honest, the rest of the OST is pretty sweet too – even before Emiya, the tracks playing during Saber’s rampage were befitting a member of the Fate franchise. It fitted the overall mood of despair at the time, what with Excalibur making massive holes in the sea and all. I’m definitely going to get my hands on a copy whenever it’s released!

From what Miyu said, it seems Ilya turned into a Heroic Spirit itself in order to get enough power to beat Saber. Even so…I’m surprised she managed to project an Excalibur with enough mana to overpower Saber’s one, especially after she grew increasingly pissed at being forced back. Heck, I’m surprised she managed to project Excalibur at all! I guess they don’t have mana restrictions over there? :D Anyway, I’d love to see Archer Ilya return one day – it’s a shame she has no memory of anything. It’d be great if she could learn to control that ability instead of activating it through emotions. Either way, with Saber gone, we only have Assassin and Berserker left. Out of the two, Berserker seems more likely to be the last boss…ironic given Ilya’s relationship with Berserker in Fate/stay. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if a Gilgamesh card existed. Actually, I’m pretty sure it does. Hmm…

    Heh. I told you to wait and see how not-useless the Archer card was, didn’t I? Freaking epic. Probably the best animated version of Archer-style combat ever, and it was done in a “parody” side story, by someone other than Archer.

    “I’m surprised she managed to project an Excalibur with enough mana to overpower Saber’s one, especially after she grew increasingly pissed at being forced back. Heck, I’m surprised she managed to project Excalibur at all! I guess they don’t have mana restrictions over there?”

    There is a reason why Illya’s Excalibur was more powerful than Saber’s. While no one will ever explicitly say “oh, so that’s why your sword was more powerful back then,” once more information becomes available it is fairly easy to deduce, and it’s clear that this didn’t just work out this way solely for the awesomeness of it.

      Ah so there’s a proper reason. That’s very interesting…I was just going to run with the standard explanation used in all magical girl shows – whoever has the biggest friendship and love will win (a la Nanoha).

      But yeah, I hope some of the haters of this “parody side story” change their minds now xD

    I am the seal of my vessel
    Grail is my body and prana is my blood
    I have died in thousands of routes
    Unknown to good end
    Nor known to have a route
    Having withstood apathy to have her own spinoff
    Yet these hands will never hold oniichan
    So as I pray, Unlimited Illya Works!

    • Vantage says:

      Ilya-tan ;_; As far as I’m concerned, this IS the Ilya route! It’s the only one where she doesn’t end up dying (indirectly in Fate), even though she still doesn’t get Shirou. Also:

      //I am the seal of my vessel//
      //Grail is my body//

      By any chance, given her role in Fate/stay, was the “seal” or lock that broke this week holding back the…?

      • Wanderer says:

        Alternate universe or not, Illyasviel von Einzbern is still Illyasviel von Einzbern.

      • phoenix7240 says:

        yes. however thats what drives the plot of zwei/2wei. well that and the prisma illya universe specific character it causes.

  4. Di Gi Kazune says:

    It is because Illya has unlimited prana.

    There is a Gilgamesh card and if you want to see it, make sure this show turns a profit so 2wei and 3rei get animated!
