The previously announced Tearmoon Empire anime has revealed details on additional cast members, as well as the opening theme song information. Studio Silver Link is animating the series which will air this October.
Additional cast members include Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Abel Remno and Shun Horie as Sion Sol Sunkland. Previous cast members include Sumire Uesaka as Mia Luna Tearmoon, along with Tomori Kusunoki and Yuichiro Umehara as Anne Littstein and Ludwig Hewitt. Uesaka will also sing the series’ opening theme “Happy End Princess.”
Yushi Ibe will direct the series, while Deko Akao is in charge of writing the scripts. Mai Otsuka is on the character designs and Koji Fujimoto is composing the music. The anime adaptation was first announced in September 2022.
The Tearmoon Empire anime is based on a light novel series written by Nozomu Mochitsuki and illustrated by Glise. It was first published on the Shosetsuka ni Naro website in August 2018. Publisher TO Books then acquired the series at a later date and is currently publishing the title with 12 volumes in circulation. A manga adaptation by Mizu Morino is also currently ongoing.
J-Novel Club licenses the light novel in English, and they describe the plot as:
Surrounded by the hate-filled gazes of her people, the selfish princess of the fallen Tearmoon Empire, Mia, takes one last look at the bleeding sun before the guillotine blade falls… Only to wake back up as a twelve-year-old! With time rewound and a second chance at life dropped into her lap, she sets out to right the countless wrongs that plague the ailing Empire. Corrupt governance? Check. Border troubles? Check. Natural calamities and economic strife? Check. My, seems like a lot of work. Hard work and Mia don’t mix, so she seeks out the aid of 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, their tireless efforts begin to change the course of history, pushing the whole of the continent toward a new future. And why did the selfish princess have a change of heart, you ask? Simple—she didn’t. She’s just terrified of the guillotine. They hurt like hell, and Mia hates pain more than work.
