The subs on the R3 are in English and Mandarin (I believe) at the same time (different portions of the screen) so it is irritating. Also the translations are not the best. It's been a while since I've seen the Region 3, but I remember it was very difficult to follow at times. For example: (check the Region 3 DVD review on the Toho Kingdom main site) they translate a line about Godzilla having an active sonar to godzilla having Missles.
I'm not sure how SumoGorilla has subtitles on the dvd. I'll email them and find out.
Edit: Alright I got my email from the guy who owns SumoGorilla this morning (sorry, I was too busy to post this). It turns out that accompany he knows takes tons of Japanese Films and tv shows and translates/subtitles them. From the dvd's that I have purchased from them so far, I can say that the subtitles they do are very accurate. Definitely better than Sony's Dubtitles, and way better than "Hong Kong Subs". For the price and quality of the films they offer, I wouldn't mind picking up a few more.
