    The very first one you linked appeared to be legit, but it was region 3. IE probably no good for you. The others def. were bootleg. All region is a good indication of a bootleg, as real DVDs are (almost) never region free.

    first one seems like a real region 3 dvd set... and it looks really cool. you should get it if you're FOBorific~. i'd prefer the US release, since they did a pretty good job with the english dub.

    for the others... studio ghibli never released a collection of their movies, so yea... like he said they're bootlegs. plus, they compressed 2-3 movies per dvd so quality is compromised. i know... i have one of those sets :o for the price, if it seems too good to be true, it is.

    no region code = HK Bootleg
    6+ eps per DVD = HK Bootleg
    2 features per DVD = HK Bootleg
    priced 1/4 that of amazon = HK Bootleg

    HK Bootlegs have gone up in quality a lot. and everyone seems to be using those style jewel boxes for HK Bootlegs nowadays. most HK Bootlegs are just downsampled copies of the released version. and the newer series are mostly HDTV Rips...
