In ancient Rome, renowned architect Lucius is down on his luck. He has been fired because his style of buildings is unfashionable, and all the bathhouses in the city are noisy, boisterous places that no longer prioritize relaxation. To get some peace and quiet, he sinks below the surface of the water, the only place where his fellow bathers' chatter can't reach him, but a powerful drain pulls him into the depths! Upon emerging, he finds himself in a vastly different bathhouse, and though the architect believes it's just the slaves' quarter, he's actually been pulled through time to modern-day Japan! Now, armed with knowledge of these strange new baths, Lucius is determined to restore his reputation and revolutionize the Roman bathing culture!
At Cromartie High, it’s tough being a delinquent -- a fact that do-gooder Takashi Kamiyama intimately understands. When he’s not engaging in contests of strength and rival gang wars, Kamiyama can also be found submitting punny jokes and planning his own rise to fame within the delinquents’ ranks, and that’s just the beginning! With friends like robotic Mechazawa, a giant gorilla, a hairy man from the 80s named Freddie and a clan of delinquents with mohawks that flow in the wind, how can anyone not enjoy high school?
If you have a bizzare sense of humor like me, you might enjoy one, or both of these titles.
They require you to check your logical brain at the baggage counter, as you embark on Dry-sillyness. It is the best way i can describe each show.
There is something similar about the overall animation style. It really is as if manga stills have been layered on a screen. They are stiff and it is part of their charm.
If you liked one, you might want to give the other a shot.
Cromartie High School and Thermae Romae both share a similar sense of humour.
Both show's are very similar in style to alot of Adult Swim shows like Aqua Teen Hunger Force etc
If your a fan of one you'll certainly enjoy the other.
Pouring a perfect cocktail is a difficult feat, but one bartender, Ryuu Sasakura, is such a master of his craft that his drinks are renowned worldwide. No matter what challenges are thrown his way, Ryuu takes the time to get to know his customers and serves them the most helpful concoction for their joys and sorrows. With a calm demeanor and caring heart, this skilled bartender will do whatever it takes to make his clientele, and colleagues, happy.
If you were attracted to Thermae Romae because it showcases a niche profession, then check out Bartender for a vastly superior show. Both shows see their niche profession as something of a higher calling, a calling that serves others' mind-body-spirit health.
