So here is an anime that I haven’t seen in a while but it’s still one that I throughly enjoyed. Also check out my YouTube video where I have my review on this anime as well here:
But here is the synopsis of the show:
“During the early 1930s in Chicago, the transcontinental train, Flying Pussyfoot, is starting its legendary journey that will leave a trail of blood all over the country. At the same time in New York, the ambitious scientist Szilard and his unwilling aide Ennis are looking for missing bottles of the immortality elixir. In addition, a war between the mafia groups is getting worse. On board the Advena Avis, in 1711, alchemists are about to learn the price of immortality.
Based on the award-winning light novels of the same name, Baccano! follows several events that initially seem unrelated, both in time and place, but are part of a much bigger story—one of alchemy, survival and immortality. Merging these events together are the kindhearted would-be thieves, Isaac and Miria, connecting various people, all of them with their own hidden ambitions and agendas, and creating lifelong bonds and consequences for everyone involved.”
So I’m not going to lie at first when I start watching this series I did get a bit confused since there are so many different scenes and characters involved. But it was a very interesting take on a show. Ultimately all the characters come together for the same ultimate reason.
The characters that I definitely enjoyed the most was Issac and Miria. They were really funny and probably the worst thieves that I have seen but that is what made them so great.
Also I recommend watching Baccano dubbed and it was dubbed by Funimation. The reason why I recommend that is because there are parts in the series where it takes place in 1930’s New York so hearing those accents and lingo is amazing and really brought it to life.
So overall I gave this show an 8/10 mostly because I did get so confused at the beginning with all the different characters and scenes. But if you haven’t seen this show yet you should definitely check it out. If you have then comment down below on what you thought of it. Can’t wait to read your comments!
