After an epic confrontation with Gilgamesh, it was revealed that Illya, Kuro, Rin, Miyu, Shirou, and the rest of the lovable gang from Fate’s own magical girl spin-off series, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, will be returning for a new anime called Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 3rei!.
Yeah, fans were really left hanging on that one as Gilgamesh seems to be returning, this time with a friend. Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 3rei! will be the fourth anime for the magical girl spin-off series, which re-imagines Fate’s resident loli, Illya, as a magical girl and has indeed become Shirou’s little sister… even though she is technically older than him in the main series.
The 3rei in the title is pronounced as drei, which is German for the number three, and if you follow Fate, you would know that Illyasviel von Einzbern is German. Like the three previous anime, 3rei will be based on Hiroshi Hiroyama’s spin-off manga, which follows Illya as a magical girl. More announcements will be made in the days ahead.
