Princess Knight is a classic anime series from the late 1960s, produced by animation studio Mushi Production and based on the manga of the same name by Osamu Tezuka. It tells the story of Princess Sapphire, a young girl who is born with both a male and female heart, and must navigate the gender roles and expectations of her society while working to protect her kingdom.

The series takes place in a fairy tale world filled with magical creatures and kingdoms, where Sapphire is born as the daughter of the king and queen of Silverland. However, her birth is not without complications, as the evil Duke Duralumin has cast a spell on Sapphire that causes her to be born with a boy's heart in addition to her female heart. This puts her in a precarious position, as only a male heir can inherit the throne of Silverland.

Despite this, Sapphire is raised as a girl by her parents and is taught to act as a princess should. However, as she grows older, Sapphire realizes that her dual hearts give her unique abilities and perspectives, and she struggles to balance her desires to be both a princess and a knight.

Throughout the series, Sapphire faces numerous challenges as she fights to protect her kingdom and its people. She is tested both physically and emotionally, as she battles monsters and villains while dealing with the pressures of gender expectations and her own identity.

The show is notable for its portrayal of a strong, independent female character in a time when such characters were not common in animation. Sapphire is a complex character who defies traditional gender roles, showing both strength and vulnerability as she fights for what she believes in.

Princess Knight also features a colorful cast of supporting characters, including Sapphire's childhood friend and love interest, Prince Franz; her loyal knight, Choppy; and the suave thief, Captain Kidd. Together, they help Sapphire on her journey and provide comic relief in the face of danger.

The animation style of Princess Knight is typical of the time period, with bright colors and simple character designs. However, the series is still visually appealing, with its use of magical transformations and elaborate fight scenes.

The show was adapted for an American audience by Anchor Bay Entertainment in the late 1990s, with a new English dub and editing to comply with American television standards. Despite this, the series was not widely broadcast in the United States and has remained relatively unknown outside of Japan.

Overall, Princess Knight is a charming and engaging series that offers a unique perspective on gender roles and identity. It features a strong female protagonist and a cast of lovable characters, and is a must-watch for fans of classic anime.

Princess Knight is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (78 episodes). The series first aired on August 20, 2013.
