Get ready for PRINCESS KNIGHT!


Vertical Inc. has announced that Osamu Tezuka's legendary classic manga Princess Knight (Ribbon no Kishi) will be published in its eternity in English.

From Anime News Network:

Vertical will publish Princess Knight in two volumes: the first, about 384 pages long, on October 4, and the second, about 330 pages long, on December 6. Both books will carry a suggested retail price of US$13.95. The books will be the same trim size as Dororo and Black Jack — two other Vertical releases of Tezuka manga.
This is truly incredible news! Princess Knight is one of Tezuka's most popular and important creations. We've only gotten a few glimpses of the Princess Knight manga in English before, but now we're getting the entire series in such a comprehensive fashion. More information will be forthcoming, so keep checking back.

Oh man, I've been waiting for this forever! I saw a tiny fragment of Princess Knight in the now-defunct mag Shojo Beat, and I've been hoping that more of that groundbreaking manga would be printed! Thanks so much for this great news!
