Aishite Knight (愛してナイト, Aishite Naito; lit. "Love me [my] Knight") is a Japanese shōjo manga created in the early 1980s by Kaoru Tada. The manga is licensed in English by M'z Production for digital release on the Kindle and comixology. An anime adaptation was released from March 1983 to January 1984 for 42 episodes by Toei Animation.
The internationalization of anime made it extremely popular throughout Europe, especially in Italy that it spawned a successful domestically produced Italian live-action teen soap opera, which ran for 145 episodes through four series ("Love me Licia," "Licia dolce Licia," "Teneramente Licia," and "Balliamo e cantiamo con Licia") on Italian TV from 1986 to 1988.
