Princess Knight by Yamino Princess Knight by Yamino
An homage to Osamu Tezuka's manga of the same name, which I have been reading during my vacation. It's now available in English for the first time, I highly recommend it. (Part two just recently came out, about a month ago!)

I've been waiting all my life to read it. It was originally published in Japanese in 1953-56, and inspired the now clicheéd "princely girl" genre (including cult classics like "Lady Oscar/Rose of Versailles" and "Revolutionary Girl Utena.")

Is this made by the same person who made Astro Boy? (Can tell by art-style of the humans.)

Just read the summary for this. And there's something bothering me...

...Even if girls can't inherit, shouldn't her getting married mean that it doesn't matter anyways? Why bother disguising her as a boy at all when you can just betroth her and give the kingdom as a gift?

I love Princess Knight. I first started reading it a few years ago in Japan. They had a bilingual copy of the first few chapters and ever since I have been dying to know what happened. Thank goodness for Amazon.com! Your picture does her justice. Very nice motion and intensity.

Speaking of Revolutionary Girl Utena, because of your artwork I have started watching it and I really like it. But episodes are hard to find online. >__>

I was lurking your tumblr a while ago and saw you post/speak highly of this manga. So a few weeks ago I bought part 1&2, read them, loved them. Now I plan on cosplaying Sapphire at the next convention I go to. All instigated by you, you magically awesome person.

This picture is magnificent by the way, I love how you did the background using the manga scans.

I had no idea that this was a thing - I only knew of RoV and Utena, so I can't wait to read their progenitor now. Your fluid style is so well-suited to a Tezuka tribute! Love the pose & nostalgic color scheme.

The owner of the group requested it and I unthinkingly hit "accept" without looking what group it was for. I didn't submit it to any groups myself. o-o

Actually you can take it a step further and say that it is the progenitor of all shojo manga as a whole, because without it, most people probably wouldn't have thought of having girls as their target demographic.

It's actually quite funny because as a whole, tezuka pretty much fathered every genre of manga, and showed comics to be able for more than just one type of expression.

I owned the really, really, really old tapes forever. And bought the French print a couple of years ago. I'm glad this awesome manga is now available in English. This was like my favourite thing as a kid. It makes me insanely happy that you would draw her.
