Now here’s a doll I haven’t seen a lot of! Princess Knight was an anime I remember seeing as a child, and I had no idea that it was originally broadcast in the 50s! In the 70’s it was dubbed in English and called “Choppy and the Princess”, and told the story of a courageous Princess who had to impersonate a boy to hold on to her kingdom. Back then it was easy to call society a “man’s world,” and girls had to fight to protect what was rightfully theirs (funny, doesn’t feel like a lot has changed sometimes).
When Groove released the Pullip version, I can imagine that collectors were either thrilled (die-hard anime nerds) or perplexed (what kind of princess looks like Zorro and wears tight white pants and a floppy hat?).
I thought she was lovely if not a little overshadowed by other “princess” Pullips.
Here’s my video review:
