Completion press conference of new movie "Thermae Romae"

The completion press conference of new movie "Thermae Romae 2" starring Abe Hiroshi was held at Myojinyu on 26 February which was also attended by co-stars Ueto Aya, Ichimura Masachika, Kitamura Kazuki, Shishido Kai and the original manga's author Yamazaki Mari. The sequel features Abe as a bathroom designer from the Roman era who comes to the modern era unwittingly and gets embroiled in the internal power struggle in the Roman Empire.

Abe commented that he has faith that the sequel will be even more interesting than the original movie while his co-star Ueto commented that the jokes and content had been beefed up and will not disappoint the viewers. When asked about the selling point of this movie, Ueto said that it should be Abe's buttocks. As there will be a scene featuring Abe's and Ueto's characters taking a bath together, Abe also praised Ueto for having a nice back which looked really sexy.

"Thermae Romae 2" will be shown in cinemas from 26 April.
