Product Details


“PRINCESS KNIGHT is regarded a defining masterpiece of the [shojo] genre.” – Shojo Beat magazine

Princess Knight has the structure and feel of a Disney cartoon, which is not surprising, as Tezuka was a big fan of Disney’s work. The story has a classic fairy-tale setting, a vaguely European country during the middle ages, with a king and queen, a Royal Guard who are a bunch of bullies, and quaint villages filled with peasants. The characters have the rounded, big-eyed look of classic Disney characters, and the pacing and slapstick humor conjure up such classics as “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.”…Still, Tezuka’s story seems to have caught the popular imagination in a way that earlier shoujo manga did not.” – MTV
