Tears to Tiara 6 – 7 : How to build up a harem

June 4, 2009

for all your harem needs~

I’m a bit behind on Tears to Tiara but I’m catching up on it. Tears to Tiara might seem familiar if you’ve watched Utawarerumono in the past since it’s from the same production team. First a little review to get you into the plot. The main character in this series is Arawn (Okawa Toru :  FMA 1), he is a demon lord who got revived in the beginning of the story. He saved, or rather spared Riannon (Yuuko Goto :  SHnY, Code Geass ) a girl who was abducted by some extra badass in order to revive the Demon Lord. Because he saved her she decided to pick him as a future husband. Aaaand to make things even more complicated…since it’s the tradition that the husband of the tribe’s leader’s daughter becomes the new tribe leader, Arawn gets the red scarf (symbol of leadership) and becomes in less than 2 episodes the powerful leader within the Gael tribe. He picks up some more girls along the way and gradually forms his cozy harem. I should also mention Riannon’s brother, Arthur (Ishii Makoto : True Tears) who’s jealous of Arawn most of the time, he’s kind of a knucklehead ninja character.

That being said… the road to building up an RPG harem is wide open ahead of us…

Episode 6

Time for a new party member~

Last time Arawn and his fellowship went hunting, but instead of finding the usual giant crab menu…they found something much much better…

mysterious person rising from the sea...

didn't see that coming

new party member

new party member? Llyr says hello to the world

It is non other than the fearie that awaited Arawn’s arrival…Llyr! The poor girl got tired of waiting and fell asleep on the beach only to get washed away by the ocean later on. One should really wonder how that girl’s appearance still looks so decent after what happend to her…but I guess the smile really makes up for that.

Meanwhile Arawn wanders around the beach, much to his (and my surprise) he finds…

no...its not what you think it is...

It seems to be a seal skin, not a seal. Arawn decides to take it with him and notices Riannon further ahead, she’s having trouble making a fire and clever as Arawn is…he throws the seal skin on the fire (fat + fire = more fire) Soon Arawn’ll regret his “clever” act.

But before I get to this, let’s get a good laugh with our daily drunk show…

Women and alcohol... its a good combination if you ask me

Women and alcohol... it's a good combination if you ask me

While Morgan (Mai Nakahara, yes…Mai Nakahara as in Nagisa) is having fun drinking, Llyr is searching for something in the background…

you can see it coming dont you?

you can see it coming don't you?

Her precious clothing is nothing less than the seal skin Arawn burned on the campfire. Now I know you’re wondering why a girl would run around with a seal skin, but it even gets worse…

from now on think twice before you wear animal fur okay?

Well that concludes most of the first part of the episode, Llyr gets engaged with the (un)fortunate Arawn and turns out to be the clumsy character, which we didn’t have in the harem yet. For your personal collection of Llyr service, here’s a few snapshots…

Washing is what good housewives do...is it?

Next up…milking a cow…

Thats indeed how you should treat a woman...

That's indeed how you should treat a woman...

youre doing it wrong...

you're doing it wrong...

thats not how you treat a lady!

that's not how you treat a lady!

uhm...its milk...milk!

well...I shouldn't tell you that this was the outcome...right?

After the Llyr intro we get back to the main plot, the fellowship managed to escape Londinium safely but got tricked along the way making them leave their stolen goods. The army found a trail back and is search the surrounding forests. Arawn finds out about this and together with the rest they set up a trap, there they await for the arrival of the enemy.

Keeping cover, good strategy

Once they trap the enemy by chopping down trees at their front and behind, they charge with all their might.

Like a true leader...

let the beast go!

YAMEROOOOOOOO!

sad...isnt it?

sad...isn't it?

The enemy gets some severe casualties and they flee… their cowardly commander, chops down the wooden bridge killing off his own remaining troops. Only one survives…

well this shouldnt suprise... whod kill off such a beauty in 1 episode?

well this shouldn't suprise you... who'd kill off such a beauty in 1 episode?

The end of the episode shows the girl named Octavia in a discussion with the cowardly commander. When the agitated commander leaves the room, Octavia holds onto her sword, looks through the window at the night sky and calls out for her (probably) passed-away brother.

who wouldn't?

I love close-ups...

Salvation...we all seek it

Episode 7 : Itz da Koloseum!

The episode starts with Limwris telling the girls about a tournament in Londinium, Morgan who is fed up with doing daily labour wants to go over and talks Arthur and the rest into it as well.

Prepare your console controllers!

THIS IS...

THIS IS...

The “enter the coloseum and witness the battles” part. Of course, this show wouldn’t be interesting without loli fighters so…

here you go~

here you go~

okay okay...I was joking, here you go~

okay okay...I was joking

some holy book has the same plot...

But since this is anime and not some holy book, we get something more added to the fight~

:3

come to pahpah~

priceless reaction

this is what you get for playing around with lolis

Unfortunately for the loli, the match is called invalid because ‘kids’ aren’t allowed to enter. On top of that, guards entered the stadium to arrest her, but since she’s a powerful loli she punc-…

...buries a hole to escape

...buries a hole to escape

Arawn and Rainnon watched the battle and decide to get a closer look on the kid (who is a faerie according to Llyr). Meanwhile another fight starts in the colosseum…

well what do you know~

Octavia and her commander face to face in a colosseum showdown.

That's how you say it!

aww don't be so tsundere~

The fight starts and commander coward start going all out on her, Octavia is agile enough to avoid them all easily. When she finally attacks, the commander doesn’t stand a chance…

OWNED.

OWNED.

slowmotion defeat is win.

slowmotion defeat is win.

The commander goes down, but doesn’t wanna give in. He calls for help from his troops and chariots start riding around the colosseum battlegrounds. Morgan, who was in the stadium, storms into the field and offers her help to Octavia. I should mention that the organizer of the event doesn’t bother to stop all of them and the public doesn’t seem to mind it either…

With Octavia’s swift battle style and Morgan’s help they get rid of the chariots and the coward commander.

well at least shes not drunk in this episode

well at least she's not drunk in this episode

game over

game over

Octavia thanks Morgan for helping her out, when they both introduce themselves to each other, Morgan mentions she’s from the Gael tribe, not really the smartest move but Octavia tells Morgan she’ll keep quiet about it.

Well that’s about what happens in this episode, only one more thing happens and guess what?

is that...?

is that...? It is! a new party member added to Arawn's harem! yay for loli Rathty

It is! a new party member added to Arawns harem!

Did I mention it is a boy?
