2nd PV and Key Visual Released for “Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya” Anime Film

A second promotional video and key visual have been uploaded to the official Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya film website! The 1:30 long video shows off the characters that will appear in the movie and puts emphasis on the film’s two main characters: Shirou Emiya and Miyu Edelfelt.

The movie’s synopsis was posted along with the video:

“I think I will tell you about the story so far.

The world is in the process of destruction. Only the sacrifice of Miyu will be enough to stop it. The world, it is a beautiful place. Ainsworth had asked Illya which she would rather save: the world or Miyu. Illya gives an honest and selfish answer by declaring she would save both. As the long battles come to a momentary pause, their party collects at the house Shirou and Miyu grew up in. The group gathers around as Shirou tells them of his past with Miyu.

She was the Child of God with a powerful wish-granting ability. Shirou hid her away and let her live in the house he shared with Kiritsugu. Five years passed and now the two of them live a peaceful life as brother and sister. But such a time has come to an end. Two people from her birthplace plan to take Miyu back, but before any of that, Julian, who seeks Miyu for his own “miracle”, has made an appearance.

The fate of Miyu, Shirou, and Ainsworth will be told here.”

Gekijouban Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya: Sekka no Chikai, or Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya Movie: Oath Under the Snow, will open in Japanese theaters on August 26.
