Thermae Romae

Good god. I have no idea what to say about this one. All I know is that this is going to be a very small post. Not because the episode was short, oh no, but merely because I have very little to say about this show.

The artwork… Oh god. I had Double-J flashbacks inside of my head while watching the first episode. The only difference is; I think I’d prefer to watch Double-J. It looks so cheap, so unmotivated and boring. That’s really a shame too, because I caught a few glimpses of some well-drawn scenes, so they could definitely do better.

The story however is just as good as the artwork. It’s supposed to be a comedy, but I didn’t even laugh once. The jokes are very dry for a show that involves so much water. Fact is; the artwork and story fit each other perfectly; both need a lot more work.

I for one do not recommend this. It’s a waste of time. I don’t pay for bandwidth, but I wouldn’t have wasted a single Megabyte on this show if I had known that I would be watching something like this.

The story is a comedy about Lucius, an architect of public bath houses in ancient Rome, who time-travels to various modern-day baths in Japan. The author explores the two cultures in the world “that have loved baths the most: the Japanese and the Romans.”
