The age of Iron...the age of humans...
Tears to Tiara is set in a world based on British, Celtic & Roman mythology during the Dark Ages. The demon lord Arawn, has been resurrected since his death a millennium ago by Drwc, a priest from the Divine Empire, who plans to rule the world using Arwan's powers by offering a girl named Riannon, a descendant of the Elf King Pwyll as a sacrifice.
However, Arawn refuses the sacrifice and kills Drwc instead. Grateful for saving her, she makes him her husband and Chief of her people, the Gael Tribe.
Together with Arthur, Riannon's older brother and the tribe's First Warrior and Ogam, a wizard and an old friend of Arawn and the siblings, Arwan leads the tribe along with a group of warriors who follows them against the Empire who plans to destroy all those who oppose them.
Presented in a collector's slipcase, TEARS TO TIARA is a return to the sword and sorcery tale of old, rebelious good versus accepted evil in a classic narrative style. 26 episodes unfolding an alchemical fantasy epic.
Tomoki Kobayashi has directed episodes of Galaxy Angel A and Sola, with Tears to Tiara being the first complete series he has handled as director.
