4.0 out of 5 stars A weird and wonderful anime set in America! Nov. 2 2013
By John Thomas Anderson TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Baccano is definitely not your normal anime series. For one thing there's not a single Japanese soul in it. And for another, there is no one major character upon which others revolve. Instead you have over a dozen major characters all of whose actions are integral to the story, multiple plot lines which weave and intersect like a fine linen cloth and at least two major simultaneous stories which jump back and forth between the big Apple, Chicago and an express train called The Flying Pussyfoot! Then ups the anti even more by continuously jumping back and forth between 1929, 1930 and 1931 as well!

Set in the gangster era of America; at first it seems like your typical gangster tale. But this is soon dispelled when you realize that some of the major characters seem to be immortal and other storylines seem to appear right out of midair. Then throw in the jumping back and forth in time and you tend to go "What!........"

Now this is not the first anime series that has done this and normally I hate series like this but in this case it really works great! As you'll see a scene in an early episode, then jump to something that doesn't appear related and then later on see it again with different eyes or knowledge and things take on a different tone completely!

The characters are equally interesting. While a very violent series with multiple deaths, it's surprisingly not that dark. As whenever the angst tends to overwhelm, they'll throw in some of the weirdest character interactions, scenes or outright surprises. So you have characters like Isaac and Miria who are not the sharpest tools in the toolshed alongside deadly Mafia hitmen and others who may or may not even be human. Even the psychopath and the rail tracer are very interesting characters!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it ! RIGHT NOW !!! May 19 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am seriously glad I bought this anime, as I now rank it with my favorite series I've seen up until now. The story telling is quite original, as you have no central character to focus on : instead, you get half a dozen, all as loveable and unique as the others. What's more, you get to see, with the occurrence of multiple jumps through time, how all of their stories tangle to finally form a complex intrigue. The only thing I recommend is that you watch this series in a short amount of time (I didn't have any trouble, as each episode left me craving for more), as the recurring flashbacks and swaps between characters can get a bit confusing if you do not pay enough attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent underrated series July 16 2013
By Dave
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Picked this up based on a reviewer recommendation and I love it. Excellent story and very likable characters. Almost everyone has some redeeming characteristics and the nonlinear way the story is told (a la Pulp Fiction) is a refreshing change. I recommend teh English dub in this case as the story takes place mainly in the U.S. in the 1920's and 30's and the voice actors have a great NY / Chicago accent. This really helps set theh mood.

I highly recommend this DVD.

I've watched the whole show three times now and it never really gets old. The English version is better so use it.
