Part 1Graphic Novel - 2011
Osamu Tezuka's beloved heroine Sapphire, known across the globe as the Princess Knight, returns in a two-volume release by famed manga publisher Vertical. Heavily inspired by Disney in its design and tone and considered by many as the first major shojo (girls) work, it has long been one of Tezuka's most acclaimed works. Set in a medieval fairytale backdrop, Princess Knight is the tale of a young princess named Sapphire who must pretend to be a male prince so she can inherit the throne. Undiscouraged by sexism, Sapphire fully accepts her role and becomes a dashing heroine.
