Netflix has decided to release the anime adaptation of Mari Yamazaki’s manga Thermae Romae Novae. The series will appear on the streaming platform from Monday, March 28th, 2022.

The story is based on the popular Japanese manga series that won the third Manga Taishō and the Short Story Award at the 14th Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize.

The revelation of the show’s arrival came in 2020 during the Netflix Anime Festival, where it was disclosed that the series would receive a new original net animation (ONA) anime adaptation by NAZ. The official dates of the release were unveiled in February 2022 through the trailer out on the various Netflix YouTube channels.

The upcoming anime is directed by Tetsuya Tatamitani and written by Yūichirō Momose.

The story follows Lucius Modestus, a Roman thermae architect who discovers the advanced Japanese spas, thinking them to be the baths belonging to ‘flat-faced slaves.’ Inspired by his discovery, he created Roma Thermae’s spa, merging ancient ideas with modern times. His journey is shown through various episodes as he struggles to stay in Japan while doing his best to maintain his business. He visits modern bathhouses, private baths, waterparks, fertility festivals, and zoos. There, he always happens to find the motivation to solve the exact problem he has been sufering from.

According to the sources, the anime writer Mari Yamazaki has worked with Netflix to follow the plotline and revealed that the upcoming episodes would continue the story that Yamazaki couldn’t squeeze into the manga.

The complete list of the cast hasn’t been disclosed, and only the artist will be lending his voice as Lucius Modestus has been confirmed. Lucious’s voice belongs to Kenjiro Tsuda. The actor is known in the anime industry. He has given his voice to many projects, including My Hero Academia, Jujutsu Kaisen, The God of High School, Horimaya, One Punch-Man, and Tokyo Ghoul.

He has also been part of many Netflix productions like The Way of the House Husband, Super Crooks, and many more.

The manga series has already been adapted a couple of times in the past. It has been made into a flash anime adaptation by DLE, which was broadcasted on Fuji TV in 2012, and a live-action film.

Hopefully, the show will be able to provide something extra for the fans and bring justice to the work of Yamazaki. For further updates, stay tuned.
