A delectible addition to the series

by

This is the second season of the Fate/Kaleid Liner series. Compared to the first and third seasons, the tone is a little more serious, it is a little more battle oriented. Largely focusing on Kuro/Chloe. I prefer the silly hi jinx of the other seasons, but this is good as well.



It is a very short 10 episodes, but at least includes a few short specials (around 5 minutes a piece) which are of the silly, fanservicey variety. I suppose if seeing 10 year old girls in compromising situations makes you uncomfortable, you should avoid this.

Still entertaining but underwhelming compared to season 1

While not nearly as good as the first season this series is still pretty entertaining and enjoyable. Sentai fixed the bootleg quality disk images from this first season with nice crisp images this time around and the release came with the 2Wei shorts included. Moar Illya is always a good thing.







Sadly I really couldn't get into the story as much as I did in the past season. Like the other reviewer mentioned this season took on a more serious tone. It's not a bad direction but with a show like this I personally would rather just stay on the light hearted action / comedy. My one main issue lies with the battle in the last 2 episodes. It was disgustingly one sided and abruptly ended because of... reasons? I'll let you know after I've rewatched it. Didn't make a whole lot of sense the first time around.







Still worth picking up. Can't wait for ssn 3.

Not exactly more of the same...

This is certainly not what I expected after finishing the quite excellent and action packed first season. I admit that I was kind of disappointed after a few episodes of this when it became mostly clear that this series was no longer interested in the serious story that it set up in season one, and had other priorities, like showing off Illya and her friends in fanservicey situations, and just generally hanging out with them in what amounts to a slice of life series. That's not to say there is no plot, it slowly moves forward, but most of this season is playing around with the girls. If you always wanted Fate Kaleid to be more of an actual spin off than what we got with the first season, this might be for you, if you want more plot and less shenanigans, you might want to skip this one. Personally, once I adjusted my expectations, I liked this a lot, as a fan of yuri, but it's certainly not going to be for everyone.

Fanservice for Type Moon and Illya fans.

This is not my favorite season in this series, but I still had a lot of fun with it. To be completely frank, if you enjoy fanservice of the yuri variety, particularly involving younger girls, you will probably like this. That's what the majority of this season is made up of. All in all though, it slowly meanders through some interesting plot developments expanding on what we got from season one, and mixing that with an extra large dose of pure fanservice. Which I, personally, grew to be totally okay with. All in all, this is a worthy sequel to the first Prisma Illya. As far as the set, it is fairly barebones, but comes with all 10 episodes split across two BDs, one 50GB with the first 9 episodes, and the second, a 25GB, with episode 10 and a series of extra fanservicey shorts.
