Summary and Preview
In ancient Rome, the public bath architect Lucius was running into a serious problem in his professional career. Though he was well trained, his designs just weren't cutting edge enough to please the people of Rome. As a result, he lost his job. In a truly despondent state, he went to a bathhouse with one of his friends and submerged himself in the water.
But then, all of a sudden, a hole appeared and sucked Lucius through a time warp to a public bath in modern day Japan! Lucius was amazed by all the wondrous things he saw in this strange world! Sooner than he might have liked, he slipped away from Japan and found himself once again waking up back home. But now that he knows the secret of underwater-time-travel, he can get all sorts of "edgy" ideas from modern day Japan to fuel his career as a bathhouse architect in ancient Rome! (The series won Manga Taisho 2010).
