Thermae Romae Does Space Brothers & Monster Hunter Crossovers
Spacesuited Roman, toga-wearing astronaut, naked-man statue sword featured
The time-traveling bath manga Thermae Romae is spanning the dimensions again for promotional crossovers with Chūya Koyama's Space Brothers manga and CAPCOM'sMonster Hunter Frontier Online game this fall.
Even though Enterbrain publishes Thermae Romae and Kodansha publishesSpace Brothers, the two publishers are collaborating on a joint promotional campaign that launches in bookstores throughout Japan on September 25. The campaign puts Lucius, the Roman bath architect fromThermae Romae, in a spacesuit, whileSpace Brothers’ astronaut-in-training Mutta dons a toga. The resulting illustration will adorn posters and cardboard standups on display at bookstores. About 10 of those stores will also erect giant, 180-centimeter-tall (about 71-inch-tall) signs.
Thermae Romaeis running in Monthly Comic Beam magazine, whileSpace Brothers is running inMorning magazine. Both manga inspired live-action movies as well as television anime.Thermae Romae’s anime started this past January, whileSpace Brothers is still broadcasting.
Meanwhile,CAPCOMwill launch its PC gameMonster Hunter Frontier Onlineon October 12 with an optionalThermae Romaequest. The November issue ofMonthly Comic Beamwill ship on October 12 as well, and it will include an event code for the game. People who enter the code in the game by September 10, 2013 will receive “Lucius’ Request.” Those who complete the quest can make an exclusive Thermae Origo — essentially, a giant, naked Lucius statue sword.
