Due to poor finances, an epidemic, and famine, the once prosperous Tearmoon Empire ultimately falls to a revolution instigated by its citizens and supported by neighboring nations. The rebellion also brings dire consequences for Mia Luna Tearmoon, the empire's extremely spoiled princess, who endures three years in the dungeons before facing execution.

By some miracle, Mia finds herself reincarnated as her 12-year-old self, retaining full memories of everything that had transpired. With the pain of the guillotine blade freshly imprinted on her neck, Mia is determined to use this second chance at life to avoid the grim fate that awaits her. She utilizes all her knowledge to improve the state of the kingdom and gather personal allies, inadvertently winning over the people's hearts and becoming beloved as a saint.

One of the rare animes that's actually consistently funny. (For the first half of the anime atleast)

Unlike other Villainess stories, this MC is actually pretty shellfish. She does everything for herself; to avoid the guillotine. But everyone around her perceives her action as a selfless and heroic act. Very funny, yes.

Soon however, the funny trope quickly feels repeated and boring to watch.

I even appreciated the writing and scene composition of this one. Why does it have to become so shit in the second half?

Mainly because the girl finished her goal.

She'd worked so hard to avoid the fate of the guillotine and now they ...

Mixed Feelings
What you see is what you get. This show revolves around its gimmick that Mia is acting selfishly and childishly to prevent dying again and people misunderstand her and think she’s some kind of mastermind. This moves all of the comedy and plot progression forward, and gets a bit stale by the end. While Mia does get some character development from the relationships she gains, because everything revolves around the premise that Mia happens to do the right thing by accident, she remains largely the same by the end of the show. Normally this wouldn’t matter too much for a strict comedy, but the anime ...

If the Tearmoon Kingdom novel series is a 10/10, then I'd give the anime adaption a 5/10, thus the score.

Seriously, I haven't seen such a bad adaptation that tries to adapt faithfully to the novels. Indeed, the anime only covers two volumes, and it covers every single story point. However--and I am absolutely shocked--the anime still just sucks so much.

If I had to describe one thing about this show, it'd be cheap. It's not just the obvious telltale signs too, but down to the roots of the show. First of all, is the art. The art is extremely generic. I won't really go into Silver ...
