‘Thermae Romae Novae’ Synopsis

Lucius Modestus, an ancient Roman architect, is looking for work because he is having difficulty coming up with new ideas. His pals try taking him to a bathhouse to relax him as his manner and personality deteriorate.

Lucius drops his head in the water, unable to relax in the frantic and crowded bath. He discovers a secret tunnel that leads to a modern-day Japanese bathhouse, providing him with the inspiration he needed to create something fresh.

Lucius, armed with what appears to be knowledge far ahead of his time, does his best to duplicate his discoveries, which are usually of lesser quality due to his circumstances. However, his mere creativity may be enough to reclaim his image as an architect and earn the attention of the citizens.

The series is directed by Tetsuya Tatamitani and written by Yūichirō Momose.
