Right Stuf Announces Princess Knight

Right Stuf has acquired the classic anime series Princess Knight for release on DVD next year through its Nozomi Entertainment label.

The 52 episode series will be released across two DVD box set, and feature English and Spanish audio tracks.  The original Japanese audio will not be included, as Rightstuf only has access to the edited video used for the series’ US broadcast in the ’70s.

 

Princess Knight is based on a manga by Osamu Teszuka (Astro Boy), the undisputed ‘god of manga.  The manga ran from 1953 to 1956, the anime premiered in 1967.  It was dubbed into English in 1970, and was syndicated to limited markets thereafter; sometimes under the title Choppy and the Princess.

Right Stuf has previously released the anime versions of Tezuka’s Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion.
