Osamu Tezuka's beloved heroine Sapphire, known across the globe as the Princess Knight, returns in a two-volume release by famed manga publisher Vertical.

In a medieval setting, Sapphire must pretend to be a male prince so she can inherit the throne. Women have long been prevented from ascending to this position but, undiscouraged, Sapphire fully accepts her role, becoming a dashing heroine.
