In June, way back when it was wasn't evident why Ram wasn't also featured, a Re:Zero Rem hug pillow went on sale, with plans to ship it August 26th. Well, it turned out that otaku all fell in with Rem, which constituted a problem for the folks who had to fulfill those orders. Well, the notice has gone out, Rem's been delayed due to unanticipated demand.
Instead, she'll ship September 9th.

Speaking of cushions, the series' official Twitter account ran an "ideal leg cushion poll," which went to Rem, followed by Emilia, Ram and Beatrice after almost 30,000 votes.
As a result Kadokawa/MF Bunko are producing a special cushion big enough to really rest on. The W550mm × H550mm × D380mm item, with illustration by Shinichiro Otsuka, this one goes for 12,960yen -on sale through September 8th.
Elsewhere, the Rem and Ram shirt is now released

And speaking of Rem, there's a great Is The Order A Rabbit? doujinshi crossover
