Oh no: Nozomi's Princess Knight set won't have dual audio


Don't worry, Nozomi has a good reason for it.

Before you break into a fit of rage, Nozomi had no choice in the matter of not including the original Japanese track for the Princess Knight anime that's based off of a manga by Osamu Tetsuka. Part of that reason has to do with the fact that the original audio couldn't be synced into the video. On the track record of unfortunate events, Nozomi's release of the series will be based off of the broadcast version that was shown in Japan, since they were having a few issues with getting the footage from the home release version. 

Honestly, I can't be mad at Nozomi, since they did what they could to get Princess Knight out on DVD. On the bright side, if you were able to catch the original English dub from the time when it brought over to the North America as Choppy and the Princess, then there's a chance that you might be contempt with Nozomi's release. On top of that, you are still getting the same story that involves Princess Sapphire using her male blue heart and pink female heart to combat the forces of evil that threaten the realm of Silverland.

Princess Knight's first set will be available on June 4th for US $39.99, and it will include the first 26 episodes of the series. If you pre-order your copy at Rightstuf, then the price of the set will be US $23.99 instead. 

To those that have watched Princess Knight, are you upset about the outcome that happened, or do you still have plans to support the show's NA release on DVD?
