Sentosha will fansub the new Hokuto no Ken Movies/OVAs

LoverOfHokuto(Avatar)Rejoice all Hokuto no Ken fans because Sentosha is going to release the 5 new Hokuto no Ken movies/OVAs. For those who don’t know, the creators of Hokuto no Ken (the popular manga and anime series in Japan) have brought Hokuto to the 21st century through various new projects such as Souten no Ken (prequel to Hokuto no Ken) and the new Hokuto no Ken manga and movies/OVAs that focus on the major characters of the manga/anime series. The new movies/OVAs are: 1) The Legend of Raoh: Martyred Love Arc; 2) The Legend of Yuria; 3) The Legend of Raoh: Fierce Fighting Arc; 4) The Legend of Toki; and 5) The Legend of Kenshiro (which will be released later this year)

Makoto and I have actually translated the first 3 Hokuto no Ken movies/OVAs, but we still need to do some finishing touches and find some good quality ISOs before the final encode. I have not made the first 3 movies/OVAs a priority yet because you can actually find some good to mediocre fansubs floating around the net. Our first Hokuto no Ken release will therefore be Toki Den (4th in the series, or 2nd OVA) because it just came out and no-one has released it in English. I’m working on the translation right now, and although I will be swamped with real work for a few weeks, I will try and get it done as soon as possible. Many thanks to Shaka999jp for the French subs, which will be used as a preliminary basis for the translation.

    hello, thanks for your releases of souten no ken, will all the ova’s and movies be released by july 21st? i’m leaving for Parris Island for Marine Corps bootcamp and i want to watch as much anime as possible before shipping out for recruit training. once again, thanks.

  2. We should have the first 4 movies/OVAs (the 5th isn’t out yet) finished by the 21st of July, as long as the staff comes together and we get the ISOs. Toki Den should be out sometime this month or the next, although it’s still only a one man show at the moment 😦
    Good luck at bootcamp 😉

    Great news! I’ll look forward forn another top quality release from Sentosha. Thanks a lot, guys, and keep it up! 🙂

    That’s great news indeed. Any plans for Raoh Gaiden: Ten no Haoh TV series?

  5. Thanks Vas 😉
    Now as far Arara’s question, that is a very interesting question indeed. I would like to do the new Raiden Gaiden TV series, but that completely depends on our translator, unless of course some other translator joins our team and steps up. Whatever happens, Souten no Ken is our first priority, so I don’t see us doing the TV series at least before Souten no Ken is finished.

    Hey, I have been looking mighty hard of late, but I’m completely unable to find any watchable version of Yuria Den OVA. I’d be happy to watch even a mediocre one. Can you point me in the right direction?

    also, good work on your stuff here, it’s all greatly appreciated by many of us, even if people don’t get around to saying thanks for the hard work.
