About the Author
Osamu Tezuka was born on November 3, 1928, in Osaka. Having developed an intense understanding of the preciousness of life from his wartime experience, Osamu Tezuka aimed to become a physician and later earned his degree, but ultimately chose the profession he loved best: manga artist and animated film writer.
Tezuka’s work changed the concept of the Japanese cartoon, transforming it into an art form and incorporating a variety of new styles in creating the “story cartoon.” Osamu Tezuka lived out his entire life tirelessly pursuing his efforts, producing more than 150,000 pages of graphic storytelling before his death in 1989.

Like the other reviewer, I'm a bit disappointed that the publishers chose to change the style of cover between the first part of the series, and its sequel. This is not a deal-breaker for me, but considering that all three volumes are the same size, I'm surprised that they did not attempt to create a more cohesive "unit" of books.
The story, however, is just as charming as ever. The Twin Knights picks up from where Princess Knight left off, introducing the birth of Prince Daisy and Princess Violetta, the ill-fated children of Princess Knight's protagonist Sapphire. The story reads sort of like a readjusted version of Princess Knight at the beginning; it eliminates the concept of "boy" hearts and "girl" hearts, but still plays with societal expectations of what boys and girls are supposed to be and do.
Without adding spoilers to the discussion, I will say that this is a nice little addition to the Princess Knight story, but not strictly necessary to find closure with Sapphire's tale. It is also not necessary to have read the Princess Knight story to be able to pick this up and enjoy it. While it has references to the original series, it still stands as its own work, and is still a worthy read.
