It’s not every day you run into shows that are just plain eccentric, especially one that's centered on baths. Well, that’s exactly what happened to me, thanks to a little TV special I stumbled upon called Thermae Romae, based on Mari Yamazaki’s award-winning manga of the same name. It may seem like just another low-quality show with no point whatsoever, but Thermae Romae is a fairly humorous show that has a surprising amount of depth to it. Set in ancient Rome, it follows the bizarre, time-trotting adventures of public bath architect Lucius Modestus to modern-day Japan.

Despite the seemingly dumb premise, Thermae Romae’s story is entertaining read more

Thermae Romae is basically about Lucius a celebrated architect who could time travel back and forth from his hometown the ancient Rome to the modern day Japan. Because this is comedy and not sci-fi, his ability to time travel was neither explained nor have been given any importance as to how he does but that doesn’t matter anyway. As an anime with a very minimal episode count, Thermae Romae doesn’t dawdle messing around with insignificant chatter, instead it gets directly to the focal point and what the anime’s dedicated to illustrate, the Japanese baths and their culture.
