Introduction:
Baccano is a story of Mafia and psychopaths, Robbers and Alchemists, of information agents and liquor smugglers, of devil and immortality, and indeed of ships and flying pussies.

Setting:
The main setting of Baccano is aboard a single train ride, from Chicago to New york called the Flying Pussyfoot. Truth be told this is a bit incorrect as it is more of that there are four main settings in Baccano,
  • 1711
  • 1930
  • 1931
  • 1932
Cast:
The cast is perhaps the best part of Baccano. I honestly think the weakest link was Lua Klein, Ladd Russo's fiancee. And while Ladd Russo was quite good, he just could not keep up with the Rail tracer.

Action:
The action scenes were pretty great. There was a nice amount of bloodshed, proper back and forth and gun spray. And the amount of fights on top of train.

Music:
The op visuals are one hell of a treat. The music itself is alright. Using a theme for op is pretty unexpected - the only other anime I have seen that does this is Seikai no senki.
The ed has the exact opposite issue. The music is pretty great to listen to but I would prefer if there were actual visuals.

Recommendation:
I absolutely would recommend everyone to watch the dub. The dub is well done and with the 1930-32 USA settings, you would quickly appreciate all the accents and well done voice acting no matter how staunch your belief is about subs being superior.

Rating:
9.7~10 / 10

      @Novela we can watch together if you want. It would probably be more of "let's watch this much by end of week and then discuss" but it might be fun
