I'm gunna assume it derives from the fact that the original title (ie logo) includes "When they Cry" as the tagline. Higurashi and Umineko fall under that as the franchise so its probably following the logic of "Franchise: Series tag". Umineko would likely be "When they Cry: Umineko"

I have a question. I know it's against the rules to discuss bootlegged items, but all I want to know is whether I have is actually bootlegged to begin with.

In an attempt to get me Umineko for Christmas, my dad accidentally ordered season one of the Higurashi Anime. It was a bit of a surprise to see it, knowing the licensing issues that happened recently with the US releases. What he got is a two disc set of the whole first season which includes:

Japanese and English Audio
English, Chinese, and Malay Subtitles.

The box art seems to be a hodgepodge of the different media; the cover resembles something from the manga, the back looks like it was done in the style of Kai, and the images of Keiichi and Rena on the sides look similar to Daybreak. This hodgepodge in of itself doesn't worry me; even official releases here have done stuff before.

The DVDs are also region free.

Is this an official release from overseas, (which I would assume to be cheaper than trying to get it here, because even the FUNi's veridian edition which I got for around 20~30 bucks is now closer to 200 on Amazon) or is this just a cheap bootleg? I know it's not FUNi's/Geneon's releases because I actually have it already, but the fact that this "release" also has English Dubbing and it is not FUNi/Geneon makes me think it might be a little... dubious.

I'm almost sure you have a very well-worked on bootleg. It isn't unheard of these kind of things happening, especially considering it is region free. From where your father ordered it? This might help sheding an absolute truth on the matter.

I found the site is a place called "Playtech-Asia".

It also has DVDs of Kai and Rei for sale that are "Frequently Purchased Together". They are subtitled, but not dubbed... what a surprise.

I hope his credit card is okay...

I've seen those DVDs before, they are bootlegged. In an attempt to order Higurashi Kira (I didn't know it wasn't officially been released) I ended up with a region free bootlegged, English/Chinese/Malay DVD. After looking around after I ordered the DVD, I found out that Playtech-Asia has quite a bit of bootlegged anime. The "official seal" is from "the government board of authenticity" and not from an actual company.
As far as I know, the purchase shouldn't mess with a credit account.

Well that last bit is a little comforting. Now the questions becomes what to do with them.

Keep them? Bootlegged as they may be, you (actually your father, but you understand what I mean) paid money for it and the quality is not bad (at least you didn't mention anything regarding this).

I managed to finally put together a Rena Ryugu Figma. It's not completely accurate but I'm happy with the result. I bought a small Rena figure (from the daybreak series) and her hair piece fits perfectly with the Lucky Star figma's face and body. So I saved up some money and bought Tsukasa in her summer uniform which matches very well with Rena's school uniform. All except for the ribbon since it's suppose to be a tie. So as pictured it's Tsukasa's face but with Rena's hair piece which seems to go well with each other.
