Fuji TV also posted a synopsis of the film:
That guy is back again! The greatest bath movie of the century returns with a miracle cast! Commissioned to build a "hot spring heaven" for gladiators in the Colosseum, Ancient Roman bath architect Lucius struggles for inspiration and time slips once again into modern-day Japan. The stage is set for the most spectacular bath comedy extravaganza the world has ever seen!
The cast includes:
- Hiroshi Abe as Lucius Modestus
- Masachika Ichimura as Hadrian
- Kazuki Kitamura as Ceionius
- Kai Shishido as Antonius
- Aya Ueto as Mami Yamakoshi
The original comedy manga follows Lucius, an architect of public bath houses (thermae) in ancient Rome who time-travels to various modern-day baths in Japan. Yen Press published the series in North America, and Discotek licensed the anime mini-series in North America.
