Illyasviel von Einzbern

For Whom Do We Shine

Illya: Quintett Feuer!!!

Prisma Coalesced Men☆Gentle: Gwaaaaaahhhh!!!

Illya: (Pant, pant) ... I-I did it...!

Mash: Annihilation of enemy and nuisance targets confirmed.

Mash: Good work, Illya and Senpai. Now we are finally done.

Mash: I would never have predicted the obsessive thoughts of the Magical Gentlemen, whom we thought we defeated, would come back and attack as Fused Gentlemen...

Fujimaru 1: Thanks for that concise explanation, Mash.

Fujimaru 2: It was a sad, horrendous battle.

Mash: Yes. Even attempting to talk about it would be a painfully drawn-out conversation... And I don't want to talk about it, so let's forget it.

Illya: ... (Tremble, tremble)

Mash: ...? Is something the matter, Illya?

Illya: ...My...

Illya: My entire body aches!

Mash: A-are you okay!? Did you injure yourself in the last battle!?

Ruby: Ah, not fret. She did not commit a blunder like getting touched by a gentleman.

Ruby: This is something like recoil from her grand attack...or rather a price she has to pay.

Illya: This happens whenever I use Quintett Feuer... Ruby, is there anything I can do so I don't feel so much pain?

Ruby: That's a tough one... The attack itself is a bit of a cheat, really, forcing magical energy through bodily systems it's not really meant to be routed through in order to gain an instantaneous firepower boost.

Ruby: Normally, the blowback you'd feel from something like that would be even more severe, as you well know.

Ruby: Your body possesses a Spirit Origin stronger than a physical body. That's why you get off with just a hearty round of griping like an old lady!

Illya: Old lady...

Mash: I never knew it was such a magnificent attack.

Illya: Hmmm, but I feel like its gotten weaker compared to when I shot it THAT time.

Fujimaru 1: “That time”?

Fujimaru 2: Which time?

Illya:, it's a long story...

Ruby: It was the time when she went up against little big Gilgamesh's Enuma Elish head-on and won.

Mash: Eh...?

Fujimaru 1: Ehhhhhh!? Seriously!?

Ruby: I swear upon this Ruby's bewitching form that story is one hundred percent true!

Fujimaru 2: It's from volume five of Prisma☆Illya 2wei!

Ruby: Exactly! This blatant advertisement is so bold, even Ruby wants to tip her hat to it!

Ruby: But you know...that was only possible because the other party wasn't going all-out...or rather, he was just toying with us, which was our saving grace.

Mash: W-well...even so, that is truly incredible!

Illya: I was just so...engrossed in the moment...

Illya: A-anyway! I want to get stronger!

Illya: Ruby. If I'm stronger than my physical body, don't you think I can increase my magical energy output?

Ruby: Ah, a girl who pursues pure firepower! Yes!

Ruby: cut to the chase, the problem is actually on your end.

Illya: Eh? What do you mean?

Ruby: My only job is to maintain the four systems as pseudo-magical circuits.

Ruby: The amount of magical energy that goes through them is actually dependent on Illya's willpower.

Illya: Willpower...? I think I'm trying my best...

Mash: Perhaps...

Fujimaru 1: You're holding yourself back psychologically.

Ruby: Ah! Way to go! Great, Master!

Ruby: You catch on fast, like you're a seasoned vet of school girls who are innocent and pure of heart!

Illya: Putting it that way makes it sound kind of weird...

Ruby: Now that Miss Illya is just starting to understand euphemisms, teasing her is really fun! Anyway...

Ruby: The physical repercussions she suffers are serious, and I can only imagine how SERIOUSLY painful they are.

Ruby: Perhaps she has unconsciously held back her output out of fear of the pain she remembers from the past.

Mash: That...

Fujimaru 1: Totally understandable.

Fujimaru 2: Don't push yourself too hard...

Illya: You're worried about me. Thanks, [♂ big brother /♀️ big sister} Fujimaru.

Illya: But even so...I want to get stronger.

Mash: I completely understand.

Mash: But you're still in elementary school. Why are you so eager to get stronger?

Illya: Because...because...if I don't get stronger...

Mash: If you don't...?

Illya: People will say I'm weaker than Chloe!

Mash: ...Come again?

Illya: People will say “Chloe's a much easier character to use,” or “Chloe's NP is stronger”!!!

Illya: I know...I know I'm weak. I don't have that much magical energy, and I'm bad at making snap decisions in battle...

Illya: But you know what? No matter how underdeveloped I may be, there's one thing I can't let slide.

Illya: I don't care if other people best me... But as the older sister...!

Illya: I can't let Chloe best me!!!

Mash: ...

Mash:'s been a while since I heard such, intense pledge like that. It was almost moving...

Mash: But I don't think you are weaker than Chloe, Illya.

Mash: So please calm down...

Illya: It's true! Ruby told me everyone is saying that!

Mash: Ruby!?

Ruby: Ahahahahaha!

Fujimaru 1: We want to help you, but...

Fujimaru 2: Ummmmm...

???: Heh heh heh...I see you are in a bind.

Illya: Eh? Wh-who's there!?

???: Hah!!!

???: I heard it all!

Mash: Oh, that dark silhouette...!?

Fujimaru 1: Who exactly are you!?

Ruby: ...

Ruby: Oh. Um... Y'know... To be continued and all that...


B:???: I'm going to say it again: I heard it all!!!

Illya: You're repeating yourself!?

Fujimaru 1: That voice...!

Fujimaru 2: That succubus-like aura...!

Chloe: Bingo! I'm the big sister who's better than Illya in every way! The one and only Chloe von Einzbern!

Illya: Chloe!?

Illya: H-how long have you been listening!?

Chloe: Hmm...since someone said, “Congratulations. She's a healthy baby girl.”

Illya: S-since the moment I was born!? That's such a big sister thing to say... Wh-why, you!

Ruby: The “who's the older sister” battle...I still don't understand the rules.

Mash: Um...sorry to interrupt your sisterly banter, but...didn't you show up because you had business with us, Chloe?

Chloe: Oh right, right. It's about Illya.

Chloe: She's been mumbling “more firepower, more firepower” to herself every day, so I was worried about her.

Illya: W-was I muttering borderline scary stuff to myself?

Chloe: Yeah, I seriously considered calling the cops.

Chloe: Ah well, can't be helped. No matter the era, the weak always struggle to gain more power.

Chloe: To support her fervent but futile efforts, we've all showed up. That's all.

Illya: Oh that's just infuriating!

Illya: ...Hm? “We”?

Chloe: Heh heh heh! Indeed!

Chloe: Be grateful, Illya. I went ALL over to gather everyone here together, in one place!

Chloe: Now come on out! “Illya's Magnificent Strengtheners!”

Stheno: You talk too much, Chloe. Just how long were you going to keep us in the green room?

Euryale: Well, the only thing to do about this is to slap my dummy younger sister Medusa's butt once for every second you kept us waiting! (Slap)

Medusa: Ow! I-I'm sorry...! Sorry to trouble you, but please speed things up...!

Mash: The three Gorgon sisters are here...!? What is going on...?

Illya: Eh? Wh-what!? What's this “Illya's Magnificent Strengtheners” about!?

Ishtar: I usually don't work for free. If you can't pay my price, I'll have to seize some of Chaldea's assets.

Quetzalcoatl: Nonsense! A lucha match is its own reward, more valuable than jewelry! I will jump even higher than usual, yes!

Artemis: Yoo-hoo☆ I'm here to beat the pulp out of someone!

Illya: Again... What the heck!?

Fujimaru 1: Look at all these goddesses...

Fujimaru 2: What a sight.

Chloe: These are the seven great goddesses who have answered my call! Together they're called the “Bully Illya Seven!”

Illya: It's a different name now!

Illya: Wait, wait. You can't just collect so many of these UNIQUE people all of a sudden... I don't have any idea how to react to all of this...!

Ruby: Illya's really not much for processing complicated things.

Chloe: You want to get stronger, right?

Illya: (Gasp)

Chloe: As the big sister, I knew. I knew that my younger sister Illya was agonizing over her ho-hum firepower.

Chloe: A younger sister can't be mulling over things like that alone. You gotta take action, however impossible.

Chloe: Illya may always get swept away by those around her, but being the big sister that I am, I believe in her. I know my younger sister has a strong will, however undeveloped she may be.

Illya: What you're saying sounds kind of good, but I'm also sensing a mocking undertone, and I can't concentrate!

Stheno: Ah, it's so lovely seeing siblings getting along like this. In consideration of your sisterly love, we shall play along just this once. (Slap, slap)

Euryale: So you want us to show that younger sister who's boss with a few love taps, right? I'm a little worried. Do you think I am fit to play such a role? (Slap, slap)

Medusa: Ow! dear older sisters...! Please refrain from talking while slapping my butt...!

Illya: Huh? Um, I sense an imminent battle...but I haven't agreed to anything yet...!

Ishtar: I'm not sure why, but when I look at her, I feel both affection and a certain sense of caution...

Ishtar: Perhaps this vessel of mine has some sort of connection to her. Do you think beating her up will help me figure it out?

Quetzalcoatl: Of course you will, yes! The clash of bodies is a kind of communication that transcends language barriers!

Orion: Well, a future cutie has asked us to do this. As a grown-bear, we should fulfill our duties.

Artemis: After we beat that girl up, I'll be sure to beat you three times harder, my darling!

Orion: What'd I say!?

Chloe: Behold. See how these goddesses all talk and act with, individuality! See how they lack anything resembling solidarity!

Chloe: Y'know, if I'm honest, I don't really know how I got them all here together...

Chloe: Anyway! This is what Illya needs! You need to free your heart! Be more open! Buck naked!

Mash: Perhaps she's saying Illya needs to follow the mentality of these goddesses as examples...

Mash: I think that's asking a lot.

Ruby: Ruby does not approve of Illya acting like this lot...but will wholeheartedly approve of her being buck naked!

Illya: Um, even so, there's no need to fight, right!? That doesn't make much sense, right?

Fujimaru 1: ...Illya.

Illya: Oh! [♂ Big brother /♀️ Big sister} Fujimaru, help! If you don't do something, they'll all beat me up in the name of some weird version of sisterly love!

Fujimaru 1: ...Good luck.

Illya: [♂ Big brother /♀️ Big sister} Fujimaru, you traitor!!!

Chloe: Brace yourself, Illya! Be grateful that I've arranged for you to receive the “love” of the goddesses!


Stheno: Phew...I suppose that's it. That was a nice way to kill some time.

Euryale: Oh come on! Our dummy of a sister Medusa can't even be a proper meat shield! What is even the point of you being so gigantic, then!?

Medusa: I'm sorry! I'm sorry...!

Medusa: ...Um. Good luck, Illyasviel. As a younger sister myself, I'll be rooting for you.

Ishtar: What the heck! She's already strong! But I have to admit, your Noble Phantasm shined brilliantly. It was like a jewel in the Milky Way!

Quetzalcoatl: Mmmm... ¡Adiós, hermanita! That was a lovely fight! Let's meet in the ring next time!

Artemis: Awwww, she beat me up! Console me fervently and lovingly, Darling!

Orion: Yeah, yeah. Later.

Orion: ...Sorry about that, missy. Bothering people is practically an occupation for these goddesses. Forgive them, will ya?

Orion: Well, let me just warn you that you shouldn't get too worked up.

Orion: There's only so much a single person can bear or do.

Illya: W-we won!? I'm beat...both physically and mentally.

Ruby: The only sane advice we got was from that Orion bear, which makes it even sadder.

Mash: A-anyway, I have confirmed that the seven goddesses have retreated. Good work, Illya.

Illya: entire body still hurts... I want to go home and take a nice bath...

Ruby: Illya is not one to skimp on self care!

Chloe: Well, I'm impressed, Illya. I didn't think you would really beat all seven goddesses.

Chloe: You beat the seven... Hm? Seven?

Fujimaru 1: One, two, three, four, five, six...

Fujimaru 2: There were only six of them.

H:???: Fwahahahahahaha! Fumeow hahahahahahaha!!!

H:???: At the behest of a girl who cares for her younger sister...this feral heart roars with maternal love! If you ask for the aid of a jaguar, then I shall be happy to lend my paw!

Jaguar Warrior: The beautiful goddess of love and the rainy season...the time is meow...for Jaguar Warrior!

Chloe: Oh... (I forgot I asked this one, too.)

Illya: Um...

Jaguar Warrior: I heard there was gonna be a fight, and I couldn't resist! Meowhahahahaha! Know that the Seven Goddess Alliance is no cat...I mean, cakewalk!

Mash: Um, Jaguar Warrior...

Jaguar Warrior: Meowhahaha. Good things never wait for you! If there's a deal, pounce on it! Once it's weakened, kill it! That's the law of the jungle!

Jaguar Warrior: Now come at me! I'm pawsitively pumped!

Jaguar Warrior: Come on, Ishtarin! Kuku! Let's go in with our ★5-eliminating Delta-Nabla Attack!

Fujimaru 1: Sorry. That just ended.

Jaguar Warrior: ...Huh? Where's Ishtarin and Kuku? And where's the rest of the goddesses?

Ruby: We beat 'em all.

Jaguar Warrior: Seriously? Little girl's too strong.

Fujimaru 1: Time to beat the leftovers.

Fujimaru 2: And now it's tiger season.

Illya: Wait, what was the point of that battle? I'm really confused now...

Jaguar Warrior: Tsk. I thought I was getting into a seven-on-one battle, but now it's a one-on-five deathmatch...

Jaguar Warrior: What's up with me being the lone wolf? ...I'm a feline!!!

Jaguar Warrior: But this jaguar will not lose! Just you watch! I'll show you that the jaguar's wild nature is going to save human history!!!


Jaguar Warrior:!?

Jaguar Warrior: I can't believe I lost to someone who's not even wearing short-shorts! What humiliation!

Jaguar Warrior: Why you... Perish, magical girls! One day I'll be lurking in the darkness and pounce on you to claim my revenge! Brace yourself for cat-astrophe!

Mash: All seven goddesses have been defeated... This time for real.

Mash: When she fled into the jungle I thought she was planning to use guerilla tactics, but instead she just started shouting for us to come at her one by one... Why?

Fujimaru 1: Thanks for the clear-cut explanation.

Fujimaru 2: It was a grrreat and fierce battle.

Chloe: Hmmm. Even I don't want to comment on that goddess. Besides, that tiger wasn't even a goddess.

Ruby: I feel like whoever tries to give it to her straight is in for a losing battle. Before she saves mankind, she needs to match the setting a little more.

Illya: Look who's talking!

Chloe: So...Illya. What do you think? Did you get stronger?

Illya: Of course not! I just got really, really, really tired!

Chloe: That's weird... Knowing you, I thought for sure that getting cornered would give you a powerup!

Illya: Quit playing games with my heart!

Mash: That's enough. Illya, you've fought so hard, and you're already strong.

Illya: Thank you, Mash. Ummmm...but, but...

Chloe: See? Look how doubtful you are... It's no wonder you can't get strong.

Chloe: Come on, stand up straight! If you put your mind to it, you're the type who can win against THAT Enuma Elish!

Ruby: That's right! Beat the crap out of that Enuma Elish!!!

Mash: U-um...perhaps you should tone it down... If HE ends up hearing you...

Chloe: You mean that shiny gold guy? What are you afraid of? We're fine, we're fine.

Chloe: After all, Illya beat him once! To hell with that King of Heroes! Come at us!!!

Illya:'re going overboard...!

Chloe: What about Enuma Elish!? Our Illya would totally kick its butt!!!

Kid Gil: Oh? Well, this sure is interesting.

Chloe: ...

Illya: ...

Ruby: ...

Mash: ...

Illya & Chloe: He, he's here!?

Fujimaru 1: Chloe, you've done it now!

Chloe: I-I didn't think he would actually show up! B-besides, Ruby was egging me on!

Ruby: System. Error. Language functions...shutting down...

Illya: Don't you dare act like a machine to get out of this!

Fujimaru 2: Hurry and think of an excuse, Illya!

Illya: see, Mister Kid Gil... The term kicking one's butt is just an expression...a turn of phrase...

Illya: ...Why am I making all the excuses!?

Kid Gil: Ahaha! Oh please. I don't understand why everyone is so scared.

Kid Gil: I wouldn't get mad over a little joke like that. I'm not the big me, after all.

Mash: That's right. Everyone's being rude. Kid Gil is rational, and he listens.

Mash: Oh, um! I-I-I'm not saying that the big shiny gold you is an irrational tyrant, you see...!

Kid Gil: Aha! Listen to you, big sister Mash! Don't get me wrong, I'm praising you! For both statements!

Chloe: Hmmm? Something's...

Illya: There's something different about him. Different than the usual Kid Gil we know...

Kid Gil: Hello, mirrored big sisters. This is the first time we've actually spoken to each other.

Kid Gil: ...Yep. It appears we are connected in quite the strange twist of fate.

Illya: You are... Are you THE Kid Gil we know...?

Kid Gil: Nope. And I don't know.

Illya: ...???

Chloe: The way he gets all profound kind of reminds me of him...

Kid Gil: There's no hidden meaning behind my words. And a bit of small talk is nice. It's fun.

Kid Gil: Oh, but dear me. Big sisters, you're not my type, so this is no fun. Not one bit.

Illya & Chloe: Huh?

Kid Gil: Yep. Let's just go ahead and battle.

Illya & Chloe: Huh!?

Mash: Wh-what do you mean, Kid Gil? Why do we need to fight...?

Kid Gil: Hm? Isn't this pretty much where a story about Illya wanting to get stronger leads?

Kid Gil: You said if she gave it her all, she could overwhelm even my Ea. I sure would like to see that.

Kid Gil: Now, please. Try to “blow me away.”

Illya: U-um...if I dare ask...

Chloe: Are you mad?

Kid Gil: I am not mad.

Fujimaru 1: He's definitely mad.

Fujimaru 2: Everyone, RUN!!!

Kid Gil: Oh, please don't flee.

Chloe: Oh crap...chains!?

Illya: Chloe!?

Chloe: Hey...! Lemme go! Bound in chains is NOT a good look for a kid!

Kid Gil: That sorta thing really isn't in my–never mind.

Kid Gil: Illya, battle me.

Illya: ...!

Kid Gil: If you flee, I will kill Chloe. Oh, and if I win, I will kill Chloe.

Illya: Wha...!? That's nonsense, Kid Gil!

Kid Gil: Hmmm. You're really slow to make a decision, even when you've only got one choice.

Chloe: Illy... Ungh! The chains are tightening...!

Mash: Chloe! Are you serious, Kid Gil!?

Kid Gil: I've taken a slight interest in that heart of hers.

Kid Gil: Since you're a Servant, please hang on and survive even if your ribcage gets caved in, Miss Chloe.

Chloe:! Quit joking around...!

Illya: No more! Stop!

Mash: Illya?

Illya: You really are a different person. Different than the Kid Gil that we know...

Illya: You may mince your words a lot, and we still don't know what you're really thinking...but...!

Illya: The Kid Gil we know never did anything cruel!

Illya: I...will never lose to somebody like that!

Kid Gil: Finally. Sheesh. The lady took her sweet time with her costume change.

Kid Gil: I really don't want to do this, but I guess I can make a bit of a costume change myself.

Mash: Eh...? Th-that can't be...!

Kid Gil: Honestly...I reeeally hate to do this. But for a few minutes, I'll act immature...

Gilgamesh: ...and get serious about playing. I'm going to school you on how to properly use your energy and your life!

Fujimaru 1: He...uh...

Fujimaru 2: H-h-he...

Mash: He grew up!!!


Illya: Ungh... Ack...!

Illya: Quintett Feuer!!!

Gilgamesh: Ohhhhhhhhh!!!

Mash: A-amazing! What a massive magical energy discharge!

Mash: H-huh!? Her output's still increasing!?

Gilgamesh: Haha... I see... I see!

Gilgamesh: So this is the purpose for which you use your energy and your life!

Illya: (Pant, pant) ...Hah...hah...

Illya: I-I won!? Ooohhh...

Chloe: Illya!?

Illya: I-I'm fine. I'm just out of energy.

Mash: I didn't think we would really beat Gilgamesh...

Fujimaru 1: I believed in you, Illya.

Illya: Heh...hehe... Thank you, [♂ big brother /♀️ big sister} Fujimaru.

Fujimaru 2: I believed in you, Chloe.

Chloe: See? I told you so. Illya's amazing when she gives her all.

Ruby: That was an amazing shot, Illya! It was every bit as powerful as you could be in your heyday!

Kid Gil: It surpassed my expectations. Even I was a bit surprised.

Mash: Yes...indeed...

Kid Gil: I suppose a girl's dream can truly take her to the stars. Ah, my apologies. That may have sounded a bit pretentious.

Mash: ...

Mash: ...Kid Gil?

Kid Gil: Yes, I'm Kid Gil.

Fujimaru 1: He's alive!?

Fujimaru 2: He shrunk!

Illya: Huh!? What happened to that shiny gold guy!?

Kid Gil: Ah, I'm beat. I shouldn't be tampering with my own Spirit Origin when I'm not used to it.

Kid Gil: I will not pretend to be an adult anymore. I was given the opportunity to manifest in this form, after all.

Illya: You pretended!?

Ruby: He totally played us. That kind of intensity can't possibly be argued away as just a session of pretend.

Illya: And he's unscathed! I gave it my all, but it didn't even scratch him?

Chloe: Now that you mention it, the chains binding me disappeared without me noticing.

Chloe: Ugh! I don't believe it! I was played for a fool!

Kid Gil: Now, now. Please give me some credit. See? Illya got stronger.

Mash: That... You're right. Her output was definitely exponentially higher for her final shot.

Illya: But...why?

Fujimaru 1: She did it for Chloe.

Chloe: Eh? For me?

Fujimaru 2: Her mind was made up.

Illya: Um...what do you mean?

Kid Gil: Master seems to understand.

Kid Gil: The reason Illya's output was so-so was because she never had a real reason to unleash her power.

Kid Gil: She's not a hero, so she doesn't have a mission, honor, or pride... Without a defined cause, nobody can get stronger.

Kid Gil: Why does she want to have power? For what purpose does she wield her power?

Kid Gil: I just pushed her so she could remember, with that awful bit of theater.

Mash: So Illya wielded her power just now...

Illya: Chloe...

Ruby: Now that you mention it, she was strong that one time because she wanted to save the person most dear to her, Miyu. (Touched)

Illya: I get it... I didn't want to get stronger...

Illya: I wanted to be able to protect the people I care about.

Mash: If protecting someone special is what gives Illya strength...

Mash: ...That is a wonderful power.

Kid Gil: Simply measuring your power against Chloe's doesn't suit you.

Kid Gil: Your conviction and your heart must be pure and sincere... They must be beautiful, like a single flower blooming in an empty field.

Kid Gil: Please never forget that.

Illya: Yep... Thank you, Kid Gil!

Illya: You're a different Kid Gil than the one I know...but you are still you!

Chloe: (Sigh) Kid Gil ended up stealing the show.

Chloe: But I did a lot for Illya.

Mash: Though I did question whether the Magnificent Strengtheners were really necessary...

Mash: Though in the end, Illya's Noble Phantasm was strengthened, so all's well that ends well.

Kid Gil: But it still isn't strong enough to beat Ea!

Illya: Is that really what's important right now!?

Kid Gil: If this was your true power, then way back, when I lost to you, I must have really been playing around!

Illya: Wow, he complimented AND dissed me in the same breath!

Ruby: He may be small, but he's still the King of Heroes! I guess that difficult personality of his sticks around even after he grows up.

Illya: Argh. Honestly...

Illya: want...

Mash: Illya!? Are you all right?

Illya: Every...single...limb hurts like it's about to fall off...and I'm sooooooooo tiiiiiired...!

Mash: Oh.

Chloe: I guess that doesn't change, does it.

Illya: Ungh... Chloe...take me to my room...

Illya: Zzzzzz...

Chloe: And she fell asleep!

Chloe: Honestly. My little sister's such a handful.

Chloe: Heave-ho.

Illya: Chloe...

Chloe: Hm?

Illya: I'll protect you...always...

Chloe: ...

Chloe: ...Yeah, yeah...big sister...
