Kenjiro Tsuda voices bath architect Lucius in new anime
Kodoani.com – Netflix began streaming a new trailer with English subtitles on Wednesday for Thermae Romae Novae, a new anime based on Mari Yamazaki’s Thermae Romae manga. The trailer reveals the anime’s March 28 worldwide premiere date on Netflix. The anime staff also revealed a new visual for the anime.
Kenjiro Tsuda will voice the main character Lucius in the anime.
Tetsuya Tatamitani (Africa Salaryman) is directing the anime, and Yūichirō Momose (Africa Salaryman, So I’m a Spider, So What?) is writing the script. NAZ is producing animations based on the original manga, as well as new stories written by Yamazaki.
Netflix describes the story of the manga and anime:
Lucius, a bath designer in the Roman Empire, accidentally travels back in time to present-day Japan and learns about Japanese bathing culture in this comedy.
Netflix announced a partnership with Yamazaki along with five other Japanese authors in February 2020 to develop and produce original Japanese anime projects.
Yamazaki ended his Thermae Romae manga in March 2013. The series previously inspired a three-episode anime series in 2012 and two live-action films starring Hiroshi Abe and Aya Ueto. .
