One of the first American Anime companies, which started (as most early companies) with fans, in this case Robert Woodhead (co-creator of Wizardry) and Roe Adams. They started with Madox 01, back in the VHS tape era, and their first really big title was Bubblegum Crisis. They are well known for releasing classic anime, much of which wasn't classic when they first started selling it.

The company remained more like a fan-run company than some others, releasing all of Urusei Yatsura (except for the second movie). The company is fondly remembered by many old time fans, especially for being one of the strongholds of subtitled releases in the bad old days of Subbing Versus Dubbing. Its releases also included lovingly detailed translators' notes, frequently including translated song lyrics and miscellaneous trivia.

It still exists, but never adapted well to anime becoming big business and seldom releases anime any more, concentrating on Japanese live action samurai films. Its most recent anime release is OVAs of Hello Kitty.

The company's name is a portmanteau of "Anime" and "Eigo"(英語) -- the Japanese word for the English language. The company was Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
