They're all bootlegs. Most of them are region-free and have less disks then they should. They also don't mention the distributor.

No matter what it seems the saying seems holds true, you get what you pay for. When I first got into the fandom and I was buying bootlegs, due to the crappy compressing of the episodes to fit more on discs, and just crappy burning in general, they often would get really skippy, often making entire episodes, and even discs, unwatchable. But ya, the website is ajust a bootleg website, one of the many, the same as all the streaming anime sites out there now. Sometimes I wonder how anime companies make any money at all. Though now it appears that they really aren't doing to well as people continue to switch to watching stuff online/through downloads.

And just for reference, if you see anything by FX Anime, it's a bootleg. If I remember correctly, they are a bootleg company that operates out of China.

Thanks for the tip i'll watch out for that. I think the only thing i bought bootlegged by completely accident too was Fushigi Yuugi but it works perfectly and i didn't know it was bootlegged till after it showed up on my doorstep.
