AnimEigo took advantage of its news mailing list today to announce the birth of Niara R'Chelle Howard into the AnimEigo family, who was born on April 26 and weighed 8 lbs., 15 oz. "Like all AnimEigo releases, Niara was released later than we expected!" the announcement notes. An e-mail address for both mother and baby have been set up, although it is warned not to expect a quick reply. "Tonjua is off on leave for a couple of months, and Niara hasn't gotten the knack of checking her email yet," explains the announcement. "She keeps trying to eat the mouse."
Also on April 26, AnimEigo announced the next volume of Urusei Yatsura (Volume 21, Episodes 76-79), which includes "In The House of Mendo - Summer Xmas", "Panic in the Haunted Inn", "Oh! The Memories of Mother", and "Full of Sunshine, Full of Amours". The volume will retail for $24.99 and will be released at the end of July.
