Thermae Romae Manga/Movie!

A cou­ple of years ago, we first men­tioned the exis­tence of some Japan­ese Manga (a.k.a comic, although they're clos­er to graph­ic nov­els than what we North Amer­i­cans think of as comics) called Ther­mae Romae, the premise of which is that some ancient Roman gets mag­i­cal­ly trans­port­ed from a Roman bath to a mod­ern Japan­ese one. 

Since that first men­tion, there have been a cou ple of devel­op­ments which are worth bring­ing up. First, the manga series is avail­able online (it's nice to read on your ipad via the manga storm app)
