Synopsis Baccano!

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.

The Anime Critic’s In-Depth Review of Baccano!


Baccano, Italian for “ruckus”, isn’t just a title; it’s also a diagnosis for this anime series set in Prohibition-era America. Our story jump-starts in 1930 New York, where three mafia families operate in a tense atmosphere. Amidst this, an elixir of immortality starts to circulate, leading to an influx of eccentric characters, some crazier than others. Ranging from mystical alchemists, sociopath assassins, street thugs to determined gang leaders – all find themselves tangled in this spiraling story that transcends time and place.

The anime hops, skips, and jumps between three timelines – 1930, 1931, and 1932 each enriched with their own distinctive narrative. This fragmented storytelling births a non-linear plot structure that, although slightly confusing at first, eventually weaves into a compelling storyline that will have you hooked till the last frame. Forewarning, the multiple viewpoints and timelines add substantial depth, but require rigorous attention span to keep track of.

The Anime Critic’s Review of Baccano!

Now, you might be thinking, a story that bounces between different timelines? Isn’t that a recipe for a narrative disaster? Strangely enough, it’s the exact opposite. The writers of Baccano! have done an incredible job of crafting a complex yet consistent and intriguing plot. It’s like a fascinating jigsaw puzzle, the beauty of it only entirely dawns upon you when the final pieces fall into place.

With a vast ensemble of characters, Baccano! thrives in its diversity. Every character, whether minor or major, has a rich backstory and a unique personality. From a seemingly insane assassin to a pair of bootleggers masquerading as a comedy duo, each character has their moment to shine without detracting from the overall plot.

Animation and Sound
Animation in Baccano! is flawless. The animation team brilliantly portrays the era, leaving no room for error or inaccuracies. Combining fantastic art and animation with a deep and satisfying story creates an immersive experience right from the start. The sound, especially the jazz-filled track, greatly complements the visuals to set the perfect tone for the series.

Should You Watch It?
Would The Anime Critic recommend Baccano!? A resounding yes! Baccano! is a whirlwind adventure of dark humor, action, intrigue, and even a dash of romance – all interlaced with a narrative so brilliantly crafted, it will leave you yearning for more. This is not an anime to rent or stream for a one-time watch; Baccano! deserves a permanent spot in any anime connoisseur’s collection.

Final Thoughts
A word of caution: Baccano! isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s violent, bloody, and outright bonkers at times. But if that’s your cup of tea, and you’re up for a brilliantly orchestrated anime that doesn’t spoon-feed its audience, then Baccano! might just redefine your anime experience.

Rating: 4.5/5
