    Pretty funny, but why on earth don't they just obtain an english-captioned version from the studio?

    These probably come from a bootleg.

    This is from a bootleg version. It first appeared on the internet back in February - well before the legitimate DVD.

    There should be warnings throughout: "Do not drink and open the links simultaneously."

    I thought that "engrish" is something that is found only in Japan. I never heard of the term applied to Chinese bootlegs.

    I'm not familiar with this phenomenon at all, so can anyone shed light as to why an Asian bootleg would have English subtitles. Shouldn't it have subtitles in the whatever language of the country where it was produced? These look like fakes to me. Funny though. If they're really real, I wonder who wrote the subtitles. They obviously can spell English words fine, but apparently they're hearing-impaired.

    Not to spoil your fun, but to add to David Baranyi comment earlier, the usage of the term "engrish" is rather insulting.

    How? This is definite poor English. It's not like they're mocking some poor guy with an accent.
