Was going to mention that it looks like the GKids rereleases that started this month include the coveted English subs translated from the original Japanese instead of just the notorious "dubtitles." Went to several review sources and it seems to be that each version has two English subtitle sets, one for the English dub and one translated from the Japanese.

Apparently, this is already the case for a few of the Disney releases, but the vast majority seem to look like they'll be improvements.

Part that sucks about this is now I'm going to probably dump most of the Disney versions I have and slowly rebuild my collection.
