Looks very unofficial to me.

-------------------
those photos were from a magazine spread of the period. RRNewsmaker Jan 2004 i think. so somebody just made themselves a dvd cover. it is way too easy to find these types of dvds and cds on auction sites.

if the material is previously released, which this wasn't, they merely copy the graphics, but either leave the distributing company off or have generated a name of their own to put in place of Sony/ Ki:oon or whatever. you will notice 1st that the goods are listed as new and sealed. they will show the front cover but not the back where the company logos and other info are located. and i've seen a few that will state boldly "product is as you see it" or "what you see is what you get". i take that to mean if you don't see something, it isn't there.

the best thing to do is familiarize yourself with what the legitimate goods look like to start with, and that goes for tour goods too. people used to say beware of goods from Hong Kong or Taiwan, but that isn't always true as Sony and other labels have branches in those places too.

and it isn't just on auction that bootleggers can get you. years back i got burned by an american distributer of anime, jpop and asian movies with what was advertised as "heavenly films" and "Piece of Reincarnation". they were but weren't legit, and it turned out they weren't even dvd, they were in the VCD format used a lot in continental Asia. didn't work on any cd/dvd player i had. i didn't get my money back but learned a valuable lesson. said distributer either changed their name or went out of business. i had gotten some legitimate anime and manga from them though, so how was i to know? did they even know?

oh, another trick, and one that this included was additional content beyond what the original had. this was "Piece of Reincarnation" plus "and She Said" video plus "Nemuri ni Yosette". i didn't realize right off that that was a dead giveaway clue right there. those were officially released separately a year or more apart.

it's a tough world out there for collectors if they aren't aware and careful. the old adage "buyer beware" is unfortunately so true sometimes. cheap doesn't always equate with forgeries either. Icon_gonk
