''Ribon no Kishi'' was created by OsamuTezuka in 1953, and is one of the earliest {{shojo}} manga. The original manga series ran from 1953 to 1956 and proved popular enough to be granted a sequel, ''Twin Knights'', starring [[SpinOffspring Sapphire's daughter]] Princess Violetta on her search for her lost twin brother [[GenderBlenderName Prince Daisy]]. During the 60's Tezuka also made a TV anime adaption and an extended remake of the manga. Both versions followed roughly the original story up until close to its ending where they split off in their own directions. The new manga had Sapphire encountering the pirate Blood, fellow swords-woman Friebe and [[Myth/ClassicalMythology the goddess Venus]], all while overcoming [[spoiler: the permanent loss of her boy-heart]]. The anime also played around with some of these ideas, but quickly put them aside in favor of a longer StoryArc involving a new villain, Mr. X.
