I present to you guys another collaboration with FemboyFilms, and one that I've been REALLY looking forward to releasing for some time now 🤠

This is an English fansub of the 1987 movie "Kentauros no Densetsu", based off the manga of the same name. To date, this movie unfortunately still hasn't made it past VHS/LD officially, but that changes with this release. This fansub utilizes an HD scan taken straight from a 16mm copy of the movie!

I secured the reels from a Yahoo Auctions JP listing in 2019—only until a few months did I finally get it scanned thanks to the guys at FemboyFilms. After the movie was scanned & encoded, I took it upon myself to carefully stitch the audio track from the VHS version of the movie onto the 16mm scan, as it used optical mono audio that I wasn't satisfied with. LOTS of tiring edits had to made, but...it's finally done.

Also included with the movie is a subbed version of an omake that only plays at the end of the movie on the VHS release (and presumably on the LD too?). Just a heads-up: when the boss says "As mentioned in the beginning", it refers to an on-screen message that plays before the movie starts but *only* on the home media release. The message translates as follows:

This work was produced as a feature length animated film based on the graphic novel "Kentauros." The lives of these unknown riders spelled out in this story are inherited proudly by many riders today, and "Kentauros," which still exists in Yokohama, continues to create new "legends" to this day.

(^thanks to nemu for TL'ing this for me)

Fansub credits can be found in the Nyaa link above.
Hope y'all enjoy. Merry christmas!
