The Mill Creek subtitles are atrocioius. I got their replacement disc and the subs still sucked as there were missing lines and poorly translated areas. I just hope someone competent gets the movies at some point and gives us the release we deserve.

That's cool and all but that requires purchasing and opening said disc. Not like you can figure it out prior to purchase.

I’ve only watched this once on Blu-Ray, with the finalized Mill Creek subtitles, but I remember understanding the movie much better than I had in all the times I watched the ADV release.

My favorite of the three Mill Creek releases was the one where the subtitles were the size of the screen. I still have a copy of that in storage.

My copy of Gamera 3 from the Heisei Trilogy box set has mostly pretty good subs except for a few minor typos.

Yep, happened to me too. I'll have to double check mine. But even if it suck, it's still watchable.

My copy of Gamera 3 has shitty subtitles as well. They're not that but there are some missing lines here and there. I've only watched the film once because of it. I'd love to get a new copy, but I also don't wanna take any chances.

Not G3 but I noticed that the Guardian subtitle track doesn’t subtitle any of the on screen text outside of the title. I haven’t compared them just yet but I suspect those subs came from the first ADV release where all that text was translated through crappy superimposed graphics. And while those subs aren’t dubtitles, I thought there were a few lines where the translation didn’t seem accurate. I’m not holding my breath but I hope there’s a new translation for all three films in their next U.S. release.

I checked my copy and it's got the right code number. Can hardly wait to watch it when I get the chance!
