Do the "normal" ones say "Geneon Signature Collection" with a big red banner on the cover? If not, then I suspect they are bootleg. (Got any pictures?)

The 'Pegasus Collection' single discs where the first Pioneer releases. When the company was renamed Geneon, they released it under the signature series. The only difference between these releases is that the original release looked prettier with foil lettering, a bonus poster, a clear case and a higher price. The Signature release had a white case, no poster, an added red banner that stands out like a sore thumb on the cover, and a lower price. There was also the thinpack release that contained the whole series, but that's it as far as official English DVD releases go.

And sadly, I've seen bootleg anime DVDs at Zia Records and one at Hastings (a DVD set for Chobits), I wouldn't be surprised if some popped up at Half price books.

EDIT: Oh and, for some odd reason, Vol. VI and VII seem to be the easiest to find of all of the Pioneer/Geneon single discs, especially VI. I remember a year ago on ebay someone was trying to sell several copies of VI brand new as one lot.

Both of those are authentic. I mean, they come with the posters. I have yet to see knock offs come with posters.

In terms of video quality, I found that there was none between the official Pioneer/Geneon release and the bootleg Pegasus Collection complete series that you can find on E-bay. The episodes files are just as compressed on the bootleg version as they are in the official release. I know I was bothered when I put my slim pack SuperS DVD in and wondering why I paid more for the same video quality. Because I wanted to support the industry and store my set in plastic cases? Um, no. It bothered me to the point where I bought bootleg versions of seasons 1-3,5 and the movies (the seller never released season 4) because the video quality was far superior to the official release. It really is a night and day difference. I can make exact screenshots. I can't usually do that without some overlap with the official releases.

I've debated making copies of the bootlegs and distributing them solely because I would like fans to enjoy a higher caliber of footage rather than be stuck with what we have and who knows when we'll get an official US release here again.

I think the red label on was a "budget" line, when the company was going out of business.

There are those two, and the slim packs - the latter have different (er... well, all the same...) disc art.

The Pegasus Collection ones are the first release and the Geneon ones are the lower priced re-releases.
