    Shortly after their birth, Prince Daisy is kidnapped and his twin, Princess Violetta, is raised to play both their roles The kingdom is unaware that their prince and princess is indeed the same person, but when Princess Violetta is found out, her only hope is to find her long lost brother She befriends a band of Gypsies, meets a prince and confuses all with her gender as she poses as the Ribbon Knight during her quest to find Prince Daisy.The Twin Knights is the sequel to Princess Knight whic Shortly after their birth, Prince Daisy is kidnapped and his twin, Princess Violetta, is raised to play both their roles The kingdom is unaware that their prince and princess is indeed the same person, but when Princess Violetta is found out, her only hope is to find her long lost brother She befriends a band of Gypsies, meets a prince and confuses all with her gender as she poses as the Ribbon Knight during her quest to find Prince Daisy.The Twin Knights is the sequel to Princess Knight which follows the story of Sapphire s twin children Daisy and Violetta Not only do they look identical to each other but also to Sapphire The art style and Western Disney influences are much like we saw in its prequel The story is still very fast paced but it has slowed down a little Romance also takes a backseat in this one and delivers friendship and the love toward family instead The translation was a little better than in Princess Knight but in general, I had the same issues with both stories However, unlike the prequel, I had issues with the villains I could not see their motives Sure, eventually they wanted to rule the kingdom but, what made them kidnap Prince Daisy initially They say they wanted Princess Violetta on the throne instead, but why I could not figure out what drove them which eventually just made them extremely annoying This book does introduce some other new characters who are wonderful The Gypsy Queen Emerald and the Fawn Papi were such lovable and selfless characters Prince Daisy, I am sorry to say, was rather horrible killing animals in the forest for sport, pff and Princess Violetta seemed a stronger character than her mother Sapphire was I would have thought that Sapphire learned from her parents mistakes and not make her daughter pose as a boy I do not think one needs to have read the prequel in order to follow this book, though It is a nice enough read if you enjoy fairy tales

    This is a sequel to Tezuka s Princess Knight series Sapphire has married Franz, and has given birth to twins the prince Daisy and princess Violetta Unfortunately the kingdom is divided on which twin should inherit the throne to point of violence When the Prince is chosen at random to inherit the throne, he is kidnapped, and drama ensuesIt s good, but I don t think it works as well as the original series There are some fine scenes and characters, like how Daisy survived when he was abando This is a sequel to Tezuka s Princess Knight series Sapphire has married Franz, and has given birth to twins the prince Daisy and princess Violetta Unfortunately the kingdom is divided on which twin should inherit the throne to point of violence When the Prince is chosen at random to inherit the throne, he is kidnapped, and drama ensuesIt s good, but I don t think it works as well as the original series There are some fine scenes and characters, like how Daisy survived when he was abandoned in a forest, and the gypsy queen Esmerelda befriending Violetta It also has aserious edge with less melodrama, and less focus on gender issues.However, a lot of it feels like going back to the well Violetta acts like Sapphire in that she has to also impersonate being her brother, and the royal family get imprisoned in the same way Sapphire and her mother did at one point There s less focus on love, and of course a story told in a single volume can t be as epic as one in two.It s a still a great manga despite this though and is well worth picking up for fans or people who want manga different than the usual mode It just has a tough act to follow

    The Twin Knights is Osamu Tezuka s sequel to Princess Knight Princess Sapphire has left her cross dressing days behind her and is now the queen of Silverland When she gives birth to twins, a boy and a girl, however, the old story springs back to life The question of succession becomes an issue and the villains are a duke and duchess, a witch, and a general populace without a clue The boy twin is abducted and left for dead in the forest where he is taken in and raised by a deer fawn who The Twin Knights is Osamu Tezuka s sequel to Princess Knight Princess Sapphire has left her cross dressing days behind her and is now the queen of Silverland When she gives birth to twins, a boy and a girl, however, the old story springs back to life The question of succession becomes an issue and the villains are a duke and duchess, a witch, and a general populace without a clue The boy twin is abducted and left for dead in the forest where he is taken in and raised by a deer fawn who oddly never becomes an adult deer despite the passage of 10 years Meanwhile, the girl twin must now re enact her mother s childhood, spending every other day in the guise of her lost brother As they get older, the mystery slowly dawns on both of them, with attendant drama in the form of villains who imprison their parents the king and queen, the loss of Papi the deer fawn, a nasty wildcat, a witch and her enchanted forest, a mysterious Black Prince, and of course, the need to hide their true identities at every turn.While the story is essentially another telling of Princess Knight, this book has nowhere near the complexity or wealth of characters It does, however, provide a very interesting mash up of European fairytales and a reflection of Disney films, particularly Snow White, Bambi, and Sleeping Beauty, all through Tezuka s unique perspective and interest in gender roles, social status, and class distinctions Princess Knight and The Twin Knights are actually my least favorite of the Tezuka works I ve read which include Black Jack, Dororo, Buddha, Astro Boy, and Lost World The characters arecartoonish than most of his creations and the story too convoluted to be enjoyable

  8. Russell Grant Russell Grant says:

    Fun sequel to his PRINCESS KNIGHT series, only evengender bendy Nothing else to say, other than it ends really abruptly so I suspect he either ran out of ideas or the original publisher dumped it It does have an ending though, so it s worth checking out if you re a fan.


  9. David Schaafsma David Schaafsma says:

    Manga for girls from the godfather of manga, a sequel to Princess Knight, which I have not yet read, but this stands alone very well and is good on all fronts, really.
