Princess Knight is wonderful and I'm glad to see it getting exposure, but this is not the first time it will have appeared in English-- Kodansha released a bilingual version (see link here) several years back. I've got all five volumes of what is, I believe, one of two or three version of the story that Dr. Tezuka committed to print.

Still, any Tezuka is good Tezuka. Now if Viz could just get on the case with releasing the rest of Black Jack...

Someone needs to update the encyclopedia article for Princess Knight. The Engrish is killing me. Anime hyper

I guess I got the general idea, though.

For a manga magazine in America, it's not shabby at all. For comparison, the audited circulation of Kadokawa's Asuka (Code Geass - Lelouch of the Rebellion, Kyo Kara Maoh!, Trinity Blood) in Japan is 45,834.

I hope that someone steps up to the plate and decides to publish the full series. People need to see this early shoujo work.

Nice. Just read the credits and good ol' Fred Schodt(along with Jared Cook) did the translation. I'm hoping this means DH is planning a U.S. release soon.
