Gun’s & Roses

by wfgodbold

Yes, I know the title looks wrong, but trust me: it’s not.

Baccano! is a 16 episode OVA series based on a series of light novels; it’s set during Prohibition, and follows the intersecting adventures of a few different mafia families, non-mafia bootleggers, cultists, and immortals.

You read that right. Several of the characters drank (whether knowingly or unknowingly) the brew of alchemists, the grand panacea, and if there’s one thing the roaring 20s and 30s didn’t need, it’s a bunch of immortal mafiosos, crooks, and bootleggers.

It makes for an entertaining (if bloody) show, though. The cast is large, and because it jumps back and forth through time (sometimes several times each episode), it’s hard to keep track of who’s who and exactly when and what is going on, but if you can get past that, it’s worth the watch.

If that’s too much work for you, though, you can always just listen to the opening music. It’s as jazzy as Tank!
