Via Comic Natalie: Netflix will be streaming a new TV anime adaptation of Mari Yamazaki’s “Thermae Romae”, titled “Thermae Romae Novae“, this 2022. Lucius — the Roman bathhouse designer who finds himself in modern Japan exploring Japanese bathing culture, will be played by Kenjiro Tsuda.

Interestingly enough, “Thermae Romae” author Mari Yamazaki has been given the “Star of Italy” by the Italian government, for contributing to the promotion of Italian culture and friendly relations between Italy and other countries. The “Star of Italy” is equivalent to an honorary knighthood, and Yamazaki is the first Japanese mangaka to receive the honour.
