Princess Knight DVD Boxset
DVD | $49.99 | English Dub
Once upon a time, in the faraway kingdom of Silverland, a princess named Sapphire was born. Thanks to the prank of a mischievous little angel, Sapphire ended up with both the blue heart of a boy and the pink heart of a girl. Thus, the new little princess would be as rambunctious and brave as she was gentle and caring.
However, all was not well in Silverland. By law, only a son could inherit the throne. So, to stop the evil Duke Duralumon from being next in line to rule the kingdom, the King announced to his subjects that Sapphire was a boy!
Now, several years later, everyone in the kingdom sees Sapphire as a swashbuckling prince. Very few people know her secret. But the Duke still lurks in the shadows, waiting for a chance to make his move… So begins the story of Sapphire – the courageous Princess Knight – as she fends off the Duke’s wicked schemes and fights for justice and the happiness of her people!
This is not a rebooted series but the actual 1960’s anime series which was localized into English back in the day. While the quality of the episodes do jump, it makes for a very unique viewing experience – especially for those who have limited their viewing series produced in the last 1-20 years. [REVIEW]
