A Re:Zero Rem hug pillow went on sale in June with plans to ship it on August 26th. Unexpectedly the demands for Rem hug pillow went above expectations and the folks who had to fulfill those orders are having issues. Now the Rem pillows are delayed due to unanticipated demand.
Instead of August 26th the Rem hug pillows will be shipped on September 9th.
Re:Zero official Twitter account ran an "ideal leg cushion poll" which went to Rem, followed by Emilia, Ram and Beatrice after almost 30,000 votes.
