I have a couple of questions about Japanese imports that have English subtitles.

1. Are the subs a weird style or color like sentai's yellow subs?

2. Is the text for the menus in English or at least English speaking friendly?

What he said, although my experience with Production IG releases specifically is that they have standard subs and that the first "Menu screen" is the language choice menu before it goes into the main menu screen or starts the feature itself.
At least that's the experience I have with the GitS: Arise disks I imported.

Then again, unless it's something very special (I'm a huge GitS fan myself) I don't import much from Japan, even if it contains English subtitles because Japan is incredibly expensive when it comes to DVDs and Blu Ray.

well I preordered the Love Live Movie and realized that I never bought an import bluray or rather any type of video before, I kind of did an impulse buy after seeing the movie and reading that it had 5.1 ch audio haha.
