From Manga Inn: Long ago, in the far reaches of space, there existed a world as pure and blue as the Earth. And on this world, there lived two "Queens" with the power to control it. When the world is thrown into chaos by one of those queens, a young boy and a young girl must stand up to challenge her for the sake of protecting all that they hold dear.
Tropes found in Tail Star
- A Child Shall Lead Them: Sanagi the only living tail-hunter and Mayu the future White Queen.
- Anyone Can Die: Aside from the Elder, Sanagi, Mayu, and about a dozen others (mostly children), everyone in Ageha Village is graphically murdered about two chapters after we meet them.
- Attack Its Weak Point :
- Big Bad: The Black Queen.
- Balance Between Goodand Evil Over use of the Queens powers will slowly destroy the world as long as a white queen is not there to nullify the black queen .
- Chess Motif: There's also a White Queen.
- Crap Sack World
- Ultimate Job Security : Averted as the Black Queen will order your death if you overstep your position.
- Downer Beginning: The story begins with the White Queen's death.
- Combat Tentacles / Living Weapon / Prehensile Hair: The King Tails have a tail attached to their heads that can be used like an Epic Flail or a whip. The tails are extremely hard to cut and can cause a mental breakdown if severed. ONE Star soldier killed almost everyone in Ageha, and all the tail-hunters, and it's implied he wasn't even that high a ranker.
- Elite Mooks : Many
- The 34 king tail tail hunters of Ageha are legendary masters able to fight on even footing with the shooting stars
- Mask Power / The Faceless: The Elder. Until recently. It's implied the other survivors had no idea what she looked like. The Black Queen also wears some sort of mask.
- Meaningful Name: Ageha means butterfly; future White Queen Mayu means cocoon.
- The Empire: Originally there were two kingdoms of light and dark. However after the White Queens demise the kingdom of light surrendered and were either destroyed or incorporated into the dark kingdom forming the current empire.
- The Mole: Imperial fighter Yaeha, who's also deceased tail-hunter Sam's sister.
- Mood Whiplash: The art is incredibly cute and then Ageha Village is slaughtered.
- One-Man Army / Person of Mass Destruction / Super Soldier: The King Tails.
- Sigil Spam: The Ageha (Butterfly) motif. The villagers ditch everything butterfly-related so they can hide among other refugees.
- Whip Sword: Yaeha keeps a whip-like katana(s) up her very tight sleeve.
- You Have Failed Me: Do not presume to know what the Black Queen thinks!
