Editorial Reviews

Don't let nobody tell you there's no future in a life of crime, because some rackets can last forever. But we'll get around to all that immortality jazz later. A mafia turf war is raging on the mean streets of the Big Apple, a place where regular joes bounce between backdoor booze joints and the breadline. But this caper ain't about a simple gangland brawl. It's about hoods who can't seem to die proper after catching a bullet or five between the eyes. Sadistic hit-men and the dames they love, mad bombers going boom, monsters going bump and soul sucking alchemists bootlegging an elixir of eternal life.

Just remember, Baccano! ain't about beginnings and ends. It's about the twists and turns, bub. Paths don't cross in this story - They collide. Every Dick and Jane plays the lead and it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its Freakin' Unbelievable! February 8, 2010
Format:DVD
Baccano! isn't your run of mill anime series. From its setting to its style of story telling this show does things its own way and I damn well love it for that reason. With its huge cast of wonderfully crafted characters and its multiple overlapping story lines this show is a viewing experience unlike anything I have ever seen. By revealing latter parts of the story early on this show grabs the viewers attention and holds onto it firmly as the mysteries are slowly revealed over the course of 13 episodes plus 3 OVAs. The majority of the show takes place in the Prohibition years or more specifically in the early 1930s. Throughout Baccano! we run into everything from demons and immortals to sadistic murderers and comical thieves. The current price for the entire show is terrific and you would be doing yourself a favor to pick it up right now. If your still not convinced that the show is worth your money then by all means head over the Funimations website ([...]) and from there you can view a lot of the episodes for free to see how you like it. I leave this show with my highest recommendation. Oh, one more thing, I highly suggest that you watch the dubbed episodes over the subbed ones. This is probably one of the best dubs I have heard in a very long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The series never dies. Literally. December 14, 2009
Format:DVD
Sometimes the best anime comes from really demented ideas, buckets of blood and sassy Italian mob violence. "Baccano!" is this type of series.

This anime about mobsters mashes together alchemy, gang wars and gunfights in a dark, action-packed series that will satisfy anyone thirsty for incomprehensibly blood-drenched fights.

In fact, the narrators in episode one puzzle themselves over which character takes the leading role. The truth is that all the characters stand on their own, since all of them suffer from the same curse of immortality. Nearly 300 years ago, a group of people aboard the Advenna Avis ship attained these powers from a priest.

Centuries later, in New York in the 1930s, these immortal people are still alive, with dreams of living and dying, killing before they get killed. Each group is defined by their unique charm and brutal fighting style. However, they each have different desires for love, marriage and sadism.

All the stories culminate in an outstanding mish mash of cast members who stand out for their courage and their sense of humor. The two comedians, Isaac and Milly, humor their friends with their jokes and eccentricities. The crybaby Jacuzzi Splot gains self-confidence by defending his girlfriend against a monster on a train. Firo Prochainezo risks his life to protect a young woman subjected as the slave of someone else.

Conflicts of pain litter the series as well. A boy named Czeslaw Meyer wishes to defend himself by killing everyone who tries to torture him. The girl Eva Geonard wishes to find her lost big brother, who is presumably dead. A mute woman named Chane Laforet wants to escape from her father's plot to hold all the people in a train hostage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing on pretty much every level February 24, 2011
Format:DVD
For anyone that purchases this series keep in mind there are not main characters in this show. This is a series tied together by a series of events that usually consist of the characters of Isaac and Miria. Kudos on the animation, it has its own style and can be distinguished as Baccano!. I loved the voice acting, it essentially was a collection of the Funimation stable of voice actors. There were characters that I wished would have had more screen time but clearly their story was meant to be small. So what is the story? In a nut shell it spans 2 years, but it could be a couple days in one time period and then it will jump back to the main event of "The Flying Pussyfoot." Most characters cross paths on The Flying Pussyfoot which is a train, all of the characters have some part in this event whether or not they are even on the train. I'm not sure if this version goes thru episode 16 but I'll assume it does so if you wonder why episodes 14-16 feel out of place it's because they were meant as OAV's. I call those episodes Baccano! Aftermath, it seems suitable since it does take place after every storyline is resolved. I cannot give this series enough praise, and if you've given Durarara a chance you should give this one a chance because it's made by the same people. This one just came first.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's that Miria my dear? Baccano complete?! February 28, 2010
Format:DVD
(1931) Some bad things are going down aboard the Flying Pussyfoot-Rail Tracer, black suits, white suits.

(1932) A young girl searches for her brother, but she's not the only one.

(1930) One of the original immortals takes the lives of many as he seeks to create the elixir he drank long ago.

Jumping from character to character, event to event to create one big picture in 16 episodes? Pure genius. (+) Awesome story. Great characters. English dub is insane! (-) The story is not told chronologically. But that is not necessarily a bad point...

Why did they have to come out the complete collection after I made the big decision to buy the individual dvds back when they were $14 each?!?!?! Well, wether I lost money or not, I own it, I love it, you gotta see it!

Um,,, price jump?
Heh, sorry, bro, but the $20 price was "only temporary." Amazon's had a sale on Funimation stuff for the past couple of weeks, and yesterday was the last day--prices on a bunch of things have gone back to normal. Sorry. xD.

Thankfully, I ordered this yesterday while the price was still...
