Thermae Romae Anime's 1st BD to Add Unreleased Episode (Updated)
posted on by Egan Loo
The first Blu-ray Disc for the Thermae Romae television anime series will ship on April 20 with a previously unreleased, original episode. It will also include the first three television episodes.
Thermae Romae is a comedy about Lucius (played by FROGMAN), an architect of public bath houses (thermae) in ancient Rome. Lucius time-travels to various modern-day baths in Japan. The story explores the two cultures in the world "that have loved baths the most: the Japanese and the Romans!"
The anime premiered last week as the first Flash anime (and first three-episode series) in Fuji TV's late-night Noitamina programming slot. Azuma Tani (Haiyoru! Nyaruani: Remember My Mr. Lovecraft, Honto ni Atta! Reibai-Sensei) is directing this adaptation of Mari Yamazaki's Thermae Romae comedy manga at DLE Inc. (Eagle Talon). The separate live-action film will open on April 28.
