Blockbuster Sauna Manga “Yuyu Wonderland” to be Adapted into Live-Action!
Program Overview: Struggling with a creative block and plagued by nightmares, manga artist Kitsuko leads a troubled daily life. One day, her younger brother points out that she looks “stagnant” and that toxins are circulating within her. Following his advice to visit a sauna and sweat out the toxins, Kitsuko starts frequenting a local public bathhouse, only to encounter a strict and nosy “bathhouse queen” who enforces proper bathhouse etiquette. As she navigates the clutches of this bathhouse queen and eavesdrops on various girl talk sessions in different women’s baths, Kitsuko aims to reach the ultimate pleasure of the “cold bath” that awaits beyond the sauna. Along the way, she encounters eccentric characters who add excitement to her previously dull daily life.
