Interesting News Piece Of The Day

Because I can't be the only one who gets excited about Thermae Romae-related news articles, right?

ANN: Thermae Romae Manga, Travel Mag Team Up On Japanese Bath Guide.
Rurubu Thermae Romae, a collaboration between the Japanese travel magazine Rurubu and Mari Yamazaki's Thermae Romae bathhouse manga, went on sale in Japan on Saturday. The magazine, which features an original cover by Yamazaki, has Thermae Romae's protaognist Lucius introducing readers to his 100 top Japanese baths, as well as an interview with Yamazaki and individuals involved with the Thermae Romae live-action film. 
Anything with more of Lucius is a win in my book! For those interested, I reviewed the Thermae Romae anime series earlier this year; it's a very humorous, inventive anime that I would suggest to anyone interested in Japanese and Greek culture or just an educated bit of fun.
