The upcoming Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya Licht – Namae no Nai Shōjo (Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya: Licht – Nameless Girl) movie is set to release on August 27. The announcement was accompanied by a new trailer and visual.
The new trailer highlights the action and serious tone of the movie, and also previews the song “Just the truth” by Minami Kuribayashi.
Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya Licht – Namae no Nai Shōjo is the latest entry in the Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya anime series, and is set after the events of 2016’s Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!!. The Ainsworth family that Illya and her friends battled against in 3rei!! seeks to save the world by sacrificing deuteragonist Miyu, while Miyu’s adoptive brother, Shirou, is willing to make an enemy of the world in order to protect her. Faced with these two conflicting forms of “justice,” Illya tries to find a solution that will require neither the sacrifice of the world nor Miyu.
The staff includes Shin Oonuma as director, Kenji Inoue and Hazuki Minase as scriptwriters, and Kazuya Hirata as character designer. All of them have previously been involved with the Fate/kaleid series. SILVER LINK is in charge of the animation production.
