Fun Facts

  • Princess Knight was inspired by the Takarazuka Revue, a Japanese muscial theatre troupe consisting of all-women players, which Tezuka had visited often as a child due to his mother having friends within the troupe. Seeing women have the ability to protray strong men as well as delicate women inspired Sapphire's personality and general character.
  • Princess Knight has inspired many popular anime and manga series over the years, most notiably being "Revolutionary Girl Utena".
