You should be able to pre-order from Amazon Japan or HMV Japan, using the links provided above. Both ship internationally and offer a 25% rebate.
In Amazon, click "Display in English" found on the right side. In HMV, click "English" at the very bottom.

Good luck!

I'm afraid there are no English subtitles whatsoever, but the main feature has no dialog.
