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.

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.

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.

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.

There's no avoiding or denying it: "Bacanno!" is at times a complete bloodbath. Characters literally drenched in blood, bursting heads, and fingers being chopped off are common fare. You would think this would create a sense of...foreboding, disgust maybe? Nope! "Baccano!" is above all a love letter written to life itself. Every character has something or someone they love despite having massive psychological issues. You have the (suprisingly touching) wedding plans between two murderous assassins, a sadistic beau who one day hopes to kill his lady love, and the amazing comic duo of Isaac and Myria who serve as the beating heart of this masterpiece.

After the joyous and mood-setting opening title, the style of storytelling that awaits you can be confusing upon initial viewing. Most viewers will get the hang of the changing time periods and settle into the show, but those who never quite get it will completely understand on their second viewing. Think of the plot presented here as three chapters of an enormous, endless story. It's not "incomplete" in any sense. In fact, the style of the story only adds to the feeling that "Baccano!" is a story about the joys of life, both endless and finite.

I know I promised you'd feel good, and you will. "Bacanno!" is filled with a wild energy. At it's most absurd moments (like when you get to follow Isaac and Myria on their ridiculous capers) it's refreshing and almost innocent in its presentation. Obviously real-life mobsters were never this good-natured and warm, but even when these fictional gangsters take to gunning down their foes, the mood stays pretty light. The main villian, unsurprisingly, is truly despicable (he has to be to make the mobsters look like good guys) and is the show's sole source of unease.
