Baccano back to reviews
I'd Like Immortals, the Mafia, Three Timelines and Crazy Awesome. Also set in the '30's? Thank you!
Baccano! is an anime based on Ryogo Narita's light novels. The anime is what we're talking about here, and it spans the time periods of 1930-1932. One episode is set in 1710 (I think? Please correct me if I'm wrong), though.

In the beginning of the series, you'll be very confused. Many viewers tend to drop the anime at the start, but things start making sense in the middle.

The music and art are the best things of the anime. The opening hooks you, features the names of some characters, and gives you a flashback of the previous episode that is essential to the current one. The music is Big Band Jazz and soft jazz, perfect for the era.

The characters are all loveable, too. They range from Cloudcuckoolander, Axe Crazy, to Crazy Awesome, to Badass Normal. In short, they're all awesome. It's a World Of Badass. There is no protagonist, and each character may be either a protagonist or antagonist depending on what perspective it's set in.

It's very good overall. Awesome. It's my favorite anime, and one of the best I've seen.
1711, but whatever. (Show rocks!)
