Never clean enough

One of the biggest box office comedies of last year is getting a sequel to be release on Golden week in 2014.

Thermae Romae is about a bath design engineer who slips into the future from Ancient Rome to modern day Japan. The comedy has grossed more than 5,980,000,000 ¥ ($66 million). This is huge by Japan's standards. So there was no doubt that this movie was going to get the sequel treatment.

This time around the production of the movie will be done in Bulgaria, a first for a Japanese studio. The story will revolve around bath designer Lucius, played again by Abe Hiroshi, being asked to design a bath house inside the Rome Colosseum. When working on it, Lucius slips and bangs his head on a wall transporting him back to modern day Japan. The original cast will be reprising their roles in the film and the director of the first film Takeuchi Hideki will be back to direct.

Even though I have not had the pleasure to see the first movie, I am generally excited to see that the sequel has been announced. It doesn't hurt that I am a HUGE fan of Abe Hiroshi and that they have my 3D waifu Ueto Aya in it as well.
