I think it is work. in database.yml file like this way

development:
  adapter: mysql
  encoding: utf8
  database: database_name
  username: root
  password: password

can you try like this way?

development:
  adapter: mysql
  encoding: utf16
  database: database_name
  username: root
  password: password
