I kind of need some input on a dilemma I have. I missed watching the K: Missing Kings anime film when it came to the United States for a period during Summer 2014.

So I am considering making this my first DVD import release. Are the English Subtitles pretty good? I was told by anime fans once that English Subtitles done by companies in Japan are usually questionable.

Also I also saw a guy complain on Amazon that he bought the Spirited Away Blu-ray which a Japan import but he couldn't understand Japanese, so he couldn't even fumble around with the start menu. I know this is around $61 if I buy from CDJapan, so I want to be sure this release would be useful to me. So are menus from imported anime usually hard to navigate that much?

Please if possible if you have done importing before some thoughts on this would be very appreciated.

In what region code is your DVD/Blu-Ray in and from what country are you importing from/to?

Blu-ray region codes;


Region coded A have most American and Southeast Asian countries, as well as some East Asian countries including Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Macau and Taiwan.

Region coded B have most of Europe, Western Asian countries, all of Africa, and most of Oceania, including Australia and New Zealand.

And finally region code C have Belarus, Ukraine, European and Asian parts of Russia, central, east and south Asian countries, including Kazakhstan and China.

K: Missing Kings is Region Free from what it says on CDJapan. So I am pretty sure the region restrictions are not a problem. I also have my computer set to Region 2 since I have bought a few CDs from Japan that come with DVD (music videos).
