An anime adaptation has been announced for Tearmoon Empire, the light novel series by Nozomu Mochitsuki and Gilse, and we have our first peek at the production and the staff behind it. The series is set to premiere sometime in 2023, with Sumire Uesaka (Nagatoro in Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro) in the lead as Mia Luna Tearmoon, so check out the debut teaser promo and visual for a sample of what’s to come.

The Tearmoon Empire anime is being directed by Yushi Ibe (assistant director on The Dungeon of Black Company), with Deko Akao (The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt) on series composition, Mai Otsuka (How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom) on character designs and Koji Fujimoto (The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!) on music for the SILVER LINK. production. 

J-Novel Club publishes the series in English and describes it below:

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.
