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.

Tearmoon Empire - Simply put, Princess Mia Luna Tearmoon is a supporting MVP, and her VA, Sumire Uesaka, is a riot who guillotines the show with absolute precision!

I have heard of novelist Nozomu Mochitsuki's Tearmoon Teikoku Monogatari a.k.a Tearmoon Empire, but like with all things related to real life, I just didn't get the time proper to actually sit down and read the LN, much less the manga adaptation of it. That is, until Silver Link's adaptation this year came around this season, which gave me the perfect chance to experience the LN/manga in anime form, and I have to say that despite the clash ...

Mixed Feelings
Summary: recommended only if you have not read novel.

It was one of my highly expected show this season, after Frieren, Apothecary, and Shangfron. Unlike other time slip stories, MC does not try to be good but behaves selfish to avoid beheading. However it is perfectly misunderstood by other characters to bring the best result. Narration and personified guillotine (from comicalized one) gives more fun to those situations.

The show itself is funny enough, above average. However referring to original novel, animated part is only beginning and more chapters are coming. Animation rushed too much to finish it within one cour, so we're missing more serious stories ...

The show is really a mixed bag. From the get-go I found it quite hard to believe Mia should be behaving in such a childish and immature way when she returned back to her 12 year-old self. She went through 3 years of horrible suffering imprisoned in horrible conditions before getting killed, yet she still acts like a kid who seems to be trying to avoid death by guillotine the same way a kid tries to avoid eating his vegetables. There is no intense fear or trauma, or anything that would really be ingrained in someone after such long suffering. I’ve been personally told that ...
