Viz's Princess Knight is First Translation of Original Run

posted on by Egan Loo
Follow-Up: After Viz Media announced in April that Shojo Beat magazine will excerpt and translate Osamu Tezuka's Princess Knight, ANN readers noted that Kodansha had published six bilingual volumes of Princess Knight in Japan. Shojo Beat Editor-in-Chief Marc Weidenbaum points out that Kodansha translated the revised version of Princess Knight that Nakayoshi magazine published from 1963 to 1966. He adds, "That's a decade after the original Tezuka Princess Knight, which ran in Shojo Club magazine from 1953 to 1956. And it is this original, 1953 version that we are excited to publish in Shojo Beat in the July 2007 [issue], marking the magazine's second anniversary."
