Bathtime Rescue: Discotek picks up Thermae Romae, GTO

Teachers and Thermae, a match made in ancient Rome

Discotek Media's moving up in the licensing world, gaining a reputation for rescuing obscure and well-regarded, sometimes non-commercially-viable titles. Their latest acquisitions are time-traveling bathouse anime Thermae Romae, and everyone's favorite bad teacher anime, Great Teacher Onizuka. Good picks, Discotek! Both are scheduled for a 2013 release.

I loved the GTO TV anime, as abrupt as its ending was, and Thermae Romae is certainly an off-the-wall selection.

Discotek's also dropped more info on some previous pickups, including a February 26th date for Lupin III: Mystery of Mamo and...Mad Bull 34, an OVA series I have never heard of in my life. Reportedly Discotek picked up the latter based on demand from fans with an equally obscure taste in early '90s productions. Go figure, I guess.
