Synopsis for Tearmoon Teikoku Monogatari
Surrounded by the hateful gazes of her people, the egotistical princess of the fallen Tearmoon Empire, Mia, takes one last look at the bleeding sun before the guillotine blade falls… Only to wake up as a twelve-year-old girl. With time rewinded and a second chance in her lap, she sets out to right the countless wrongs that plague the ailing Empire. A corrupt government? Yes. Border problems? Yes. Natural calamities and economic conflicts? Checked. It seems there is a lot of work.
Hard work and Mia don’t get along, so she seeks help from others, starting with her loyal maid, Anne, and the brilliant minister, Ludwig. Together, they strive day and night to restore the Empire. Little by little, his tireless efforts begin to change the course of history, pushing the entire continent into a new future. And why has the selfish princess changed her mind, you ask? Simple: she didn’t. She’s just terrified of the guillotine. They hurt a lot, and Mia hates the pain more than the job.
