NIS America has confirmed their video release plans for The Eccentric Family! The series will make its North American home video debut on January 6th as a 2 Blu-ray Premium Edition. This will include all thirteen episodes and a 64 page art book. I liked the series when I watched it earlier this year (review here), and it certainly helps that it is another anime to utilize the eye catching visual style from P.A. Works. Full details below.
