Thieves, terrorists, mafia gangsters, and other elements of pulp fiction collide in a chaos of intrigue and violence. When a hapless alchemist creates an elixir of life that can confer immortality, a series of incredible events follow that spiral out of control, touching upon the lives of an enormous cast of characters.Baccano! (Italian for "ruckus" or "commotion") originally started as a series of light novels (summarized here), and was adapted into a 13-episode anime (16 including the bonus episodes) in 2007. The anime adaptation is centered on three specific stories from the novels, taking place in 1930, 1931, and 1932 respectively, jumping around from one to the other quite frequently. Even scenes set in the same time period regularly appear out of order and overlap with each other, all adding up to a rather delicious non-linear storyline that is very rewarding if you keep your wits about you when watching. Each of these stories relates either directly or tangentially to the immortality formula and those individuals who have drunk of it, sharing some characters and having some plotlines intersect. Three extra episodes were released on the DVD, acting as an epilogue for each character and bringing the story full circle.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })The 1930 story stars Firo Prochainezo, a rising member of the Martillo camorra family. Through a chance encounter with a mysterious young woman, he and several other characters are pulled into a plot involving a group of alchemists in a centuries-old conflict over the fabled elixir of life.In 1931, disaster befalls the famed Flying Pussyfoot transcontinental train as it makes its journey from Chicago to New York. A terrorist/cult group known as the Lemures seek to use the train's passengers, including a US Senator's wife and daughter, as leverage to demand the release of their leader, Huey Laforet. Meanwhile, a gang of killers led by the Russo family assassin Ladd Russo are trying to hold the train hostage to demand ransom from the train company. Caught in the middle is a group of delinquents originally attempting a train heist, who take it upon themselves to save the passengers. And amidst all this, a terrifying blood-red "monster" called the Rail Tracer has begun to murder people all over the train...1932 deals with Eve Genoard, searching for her older brother Dallas following his disappearance after the events of the 1930 story. She soon becomes entangled in the rivalry between the Runorata and Gandor families, both of which also have an interest in her brother.The extra DVD episodes continue off right where the 1932 story ends time-wise, and focus primarily on the arrival of Graham Spector, a friend of Ladd Russo's, as he seeks revenge for what happened aboard the Flying Pussyfoot. This arc also acts as an epilogue for the series, showing what happens to nearly all the characters while also filling in on some backstories and answering a few lingering questions.The novels are formatted a little different than the anime as each book covers one major event. While they have not been written in chronological order, most books are best defined by the year they take place. Most books center on a single character or a small group of characters as a focal point for the story. In 2015, the light novels were licensed for an official Western release by Yen Press.Baccano! is part of an overarching Verse of light novels written by Narita Ryohgo that includes the following: Vamp! Baccano! Durarara!! Etsusa Bridge Hariyama-sanAlso, be sure to check out the character sheet for the who's-who on all the leads. Contains unmarked spoilers.For a different anime about prohibition era gangsters with a more serious tone and no supernatural elements, but an equal amount of bloodshed, try 91 Days.

Parrying Bullets
 Baccano! / int_10d36992
comment
Parrying Bullets: Chane Laforet deflects bullets with knives. Bullets fired from a pump-action rifle. In the novels, Chane's apparent Bullet Deflection was a fluke (pointed out in a monologue by Rachel who was observing the fight from behind Chane. (Ladd's perspective was obscured slightly by the smoke blowing back from the engine which a wind gust has pushed between them and he simply assumed she could deflect bullets and threw his gun away after the first first shot. The anime plays it up by adding extra shots, removing the fluke-nature, and removing Rachel from the scene (in the novel it's from Nice and Rachel's perspective), instead showing what one would guess is actually Ladd's recollection of the event (with his own embellishment).

Red Herring Shirt: In 1930, the entire Martillo family appears to be summarily gunned down by Szilard. Imagine his surprise when they come after him. It gets lampshaded when Maiza is asked, "Hey, how come killin' us didn't make us dead?" In 1931, Claire Stanfield. In 1933, most of the Mist Wall victims, who turned out to have been incomplete immortals.

Evil vs. Evil: The situation in Ironic Light Orchestra is explicitly described as such, with most of the commoners of Lotto Valentino, the corrupt police, the aristocrats that buy and sponsor the drugs, including Maiza's father, the masked counterfeiter, and the Mask Maker. As for the series as a whole, the Big Bad Fermet considers his ultimate nemesis to be the Sociopathic Hero and "world-destroying evil" that is Elmer C. Albatross.

All There in the Manual
 Baccano! / int_17ce80aa
comment
All There in the Manual: While the anime is generally self-contained and understandable without the Light Novels, there's still quite a bit of backstory that doesn't find its way into the show — as well as the unanswered question of just who were those people who sliced up Isaac's ear in the first episode. And of course, if you want to know what happens after the anime events...

comment
Religion of Evil: SAMPLE, a Cult that designates a child to be their "sacrificial god" and brutally tortures them, believing that the child is a scapegoat for all the pain that the believers themselves would normally go through. There are multiple branches, but the three most prominent are the ones that hijack the cruise ship Exit, the branch that Illness was "sacrificial god" of as a child, and a defunct 300-year old branch for which Elmer was the "sacrificial god" until 1700.

Always Someone Better: Ladd gets schooled in this concept by Claire. And Ladd himself did this to Graham Specter. Dallas has trouble accepting that Firo outclasses him in every conceivable way. He is, however, willing to admit Claire does, but also believes that his mere existence counts as cheating.

Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: Unlike every other character, Claire — the friendly-looking young conductor is conspicuously not identified in the opening credits. The reporters from the Daily Days newspaper, especially Rachel, are also missing from the opening. This is probably mostly just because the series has too many major characters to fit them all into the opening sequence.

comment
Generation Xerox: Charon and Claudia Walken act a lot like gender-swapped versions of their paternal great-grandparents, Chane Walken and Felix Walken - aka Claire Stanfield. Firo does however claim that Charon's quietness and stoicism is actually a product of hanging out with Keith Gandor for entirely too long. The 2002 story invokes this, with the culprit behind the incident claiming that he wants to recreate the events of the Flying Pussyfoot Massacre in 1931. It fails, and it's implied to have been because the culprit didn't take into account the roles Isaac and Miria played in 1931.

Limited Wardrobe
 Baccano! / int_2a7e7af1
comment
Limited Wardrobe: The anime does have the characters wearing more than one style; however they omitted cases where the cast changed their style even more. Goose in the novels makes a mention that Chane actually preferred practical combat clothes, she is wearing a military uniform in the original Lemures introduction that wasn’t shown in the Anime, and she wearing that black dress was an exception. Later though Chane made that black dress her default attire and no other character made mention she wore anything else but dresses. Rachel in her Fatigues style was specific for her ride in the Flying Pussyfoot, normally she dresses like any elegant lady of the Thirties, in the anime she is in her fatigues even out of the train and oddly no one comments on it as women in anything but dresses was very strange at that time if it wasn’t some sort of uniform for their jobs.

Acting Unnatural: On at least two occasions, Isaac advises Miria that the two of them should act casual to avoid suspicion. Isaac and Miria's idea of "acting casual" inevitably makes about as much sense as anything else they do - which is to say, none.

Older Than They Look/Really 700 Years Old: To be expected in a series with immortals. Firo, pre-immortality, serves as the former, as — both in and out of the series — people usually underestimate his age (almost nineteen) by about three or four years.

Even Evil Has Standards: The organized crime families that the protagonists are a part of usually have lines that they will not cross. Mafioso Keith Gandor, for example, absolutely loathes drug trafficking and has forbidden it entirely from his clan's territory. His brothers are less fierce about it, but they still don't like it.

Out of the Inferno: In Children of the Bottle, Czes escapes from a group of superstitious villagers who think immortals are demons by throwing himself into a fireplace, waiting for the ropes they've bound him with to burn off, and walking out of the flames, regenerating as he goes. Even more impressive when you recall that Fermet threw him into a fireplace at one point. Also a CMOA.

"Die Hard" on an X: 1931 — On a train! With three gangs hijacking at the same time, two serial killers, and three immortals! You almost forget hostages are involved, sometimes. 2002 — On two luxury cruises! With one Cult kidnapping women for their purposes and hijacking one of the ships, one group of assassins getting in their way and hijacking the other ship, and seven immortals on board, two of whom are on their honeymoon. This time the hostages are barely mentioned at all. For indirect Lampshade Hanging, the prologue starts with a Mask Maker rambling about Speed 2: Cruise Control.

Late to the Realization: Despite being present during a huge explanation about how people came to be immortal, and sharing in the elixir itself, it wasn't until Isaac and Miria realized that they were immortal until they noticed that they had never aged a single day since the 1930s..... in year 2001. And even then, they never clicked it together just what had happened to make them that way.

Foregone Conclusion: By the first episode, you will know that Luck and Firo become immortal, Isaac, Miria, Jacuzzi, Nice, and Czeslaw survive the Flying Pussyfoot massacre, Ladd loses an arm, and Chane accepts Claire's proposal... Or perhaps not, because you're not given any context for it until you see the rest of the show.

Cast of Snowflakes: Despite having most of the characters wearing similar clothing each and every one has a unique facial structure. Averted most notably with Firo and Ennis, who are nearly identical◊ in terms of face shape and hairstyle despite being lead characters in the anime and an Official Couple. The novels dissuade the similarities by having Ennis' bangs swoosh to the side, but it's just by a hair.

What Are You in For?

What Are You in For?: Pretty much an obligatory scene in Alice In Jails, what with being set in Alcatraz. Firo, in for an undercover operation he got roped into by the FBI, lies and claims he assaulted a few guards in his previous prison. Turns out the other inmate, Ryujiro, is in for the same thing, except for one little extra detail...

Pragmatic Adaptation: While the anime is strictly based on the first three Light Novels, it also introduces characters and situations that would only be told with more detail in future volumes, as in it shows events that happened during The Rolling Bootleg and The Grand Punk Railroad timeline but weren’t unveiled in the 3 first volumes; Eve Genoard’s scenes, the full story of what happened in the Advena Avis and Graham’s kidnapping plan for example.

Something Only They Would Say: Both in-world and meta — Claire reveals to Rachel that he's the Rail Tracer by commenting on her train ticket purchases.

Sequel Hook: While the anime was never continued, most likely due to lack of interest at the time and the sheer complexity of the story past 1931, the ending of Episode 16 contains several hooks for people to continue the story through the Light Novels. This includes Ladd deciding to track Huey to Alcatraz and more notably, Eve's discovery that the barrel containing Dallas is empty.

Fanservice: For a anime that has NOTHING to do with this trope, at least a couple of scenes of fanservice appeared. The first being where on the train, Jacuzzi and Donny run into Isaac and Miria, trip on something and then Jacuzzi lands on her cleavage due to everyone being crowded together. The 2nd is when the Chinese girl stops Isaac from looking in the bullet holes, she trips and her breasts go on him face first. Also, many of the scenes with the Chinese girl like to show her butt. Then there's the fact that, if you look really closely, Nice, Chane, and Lua all seem to be Going Commando.

Dysfunction Junction: If you are a character in Baccano!, there is something wrong with you. To show just how screwed up the cast is on average - The Only Sane Man is a Camorra-raised Street Urchin who inadvertently became immortal and acquired the Ghost Memory of centuries-old Mad Scientist.

Exactly What It Says on the Tin
 Baccano! / int_8409a385
comment
Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Most episode titles are pretty clear concerning what they're about, such as "The Rail Tracer Maneuvers Through the Train Slaughtering Many." The fourth episode title describes one of the show's lovable psychopaths: "Ladd Russo Enjoys Talking A Lot and Slaughtering A Lot." The author's preferred translation of baccano is "stupid commotion" which is an adequate summary of the plot. The semi-interlacing plot lines do look a lot like a "stupid commotion" for the first few episodes before all the pieces start falling into place.

What Happened to the Mouse?: At the start of episode 8, a special FBI task force is created with the objective of capturing Issac and Miria. The feds are never seen or heard from again, although it's implied that most of them simply think the case is too stupid to investigate. Averted with the actual mouse, who shows up in an early episode as a test subject for the Grand Panacea. He reappears at the very end of the final episode, now immortal.

Spell My Name with an "S": Any character not introduced in the opening credits? We can confidently assure you that no one can agree on how their names are spelled. Getting the correct name for the Gandor family Torture Technician, for example, is so much of an exercise in futility that you're better off not even bothering. It's most probably spelled as 'Tick' since his little brother was named 'Tack' (an usual variant for 'Tock' in some languages) and their original family bussiness was clockmaking.

A Day in the Limelight: That's basically how the introductory chapters often works in the novels. Narita will Info Dump about a given subject, situation, or a character for the current arc, with another character narrating and interacting through the whole chapter. This is where Narita conveys how the narrator feels about the situation, their mannerisms, speech pattern and so on; making it a quick way to know the cast.

Adaptation Dye-Job
 Baccano! / int_a4414a05
comment
Adaptation Dye-Job: Katsumi Enami had some... unique ideas for what color to use for some characters, whereas the anime tried to keep realistic tones. In the first volumes Ladd was a blonde with a very weak paste tone that could be mistaken for white hair. In Alcatraz it became completely white. The anime went for normal blonde; later Enami would even things out by drawing Ladd like he was animated. Claire's eyes are usually shown as golden in the novels, matching perfectly with Chane. One piece of art for the 1931 arc shows him with red eyes. The anime went for normal brown eyes. Enami has drawn Chane with a much more pale skin tone than is typical for her presumed ancestry; the anime is consistent with it.

Love at First Punch: At first ear-clipping by knife, actually, but close enough. One of the reasons that Claire is more enthralled by Chane than any of the previous girls he was also briefly in passionate love with is because she managed to deal lasting physical damage to him, proving herself to be real in Claire's otherwise solipsistic world.

For example, "Ladd Russo Enjoys Talking a lot and Slaughtering a lot," "Jacuzzi Splot Cries, Gets Scared, and Musters Reckless Valor," etc. As for the novels, each book title is based on the name of a rock band: The Rolling Bootlegs - The Rolling Stones Children of Bottle - Children of Bodom The Grand Punk Railroad and Another Junk Railroad - Grand Funk Railroad Drug & the Dominoes - Derek and the Dominoes The Slash - The Clash Alice in Jails and Peter Pan in Chains - Alice in Chains Ironic Life Orchestra - Electric Light Orchestra Bullet Garden - Soundgarden Blood Sabbath - Black Sabbath Crack Flag - Black Flag Whitesmile - Whitesnake Deep Marble - Deep Purple Dr. Feelgreed - Dr. Feelgood The Grateful Bet - The Grateful Dead

Be Careful What You Wish For: In Drug & the Dominoes, Edith comes to the Daily Days in hopes to buy info that may help Roy escape the wrath of the Runorattas. Unfortunately, the Knowledge Broker on call for that day, Henry, is only willing to sell her the information if she can get a testimony of the Flying Pussyfoot incident from America's most dangerous assassin, Claire. So she brings him to testify personally. Claire decides to give his testimony by reenacting his Flying Pussyfoot torture routine. He pays for Edith's info purchase, as well as one of his own, by only almost shaving Henry's face off with railroad tracks.

Fate Worse than Death
 Baccano! / int_b1346878
comment
Fate Worse than Death: Some of the characters are immortal and can regenerate any wound, but can still feel pain. This leads to some pretty gruesome, if unique, ways of torture. Particularly notable is the fate of Dallas and his crew at the end of the 1930 storyline; given Cement Shoes and thrown in the Hudson River to drown for decades on end. They get rescued after a couple of years, but even a couple years of that is horribly traumatic.

Loophole Abuse: Falsifying age is tricky business for an immortal (and requires a third party in high places), but possible. Firo, for example, has a passport that's entirely genuine (FBI Victor Talbot didn't want to deal with him getting detained for presenting a "fake" one again), but with a deliberate error in his date of birth.

Too Dumb to Live: Subverted — Randy and Pecho's complete disregard for fire safety indirectly makes them immortal. Also subverted with Isaac and Miria: they mix with violent characters and seem likely to die. But instead end up immortal. They unwittingly drink the elixir of life, and neither of them ever get killed, so it takes them seventy years to realize they haven't aged a day.

The Rail Tracer casually tells her he was already done (as well as that he only killed the white and black suits), tosses her a train ticket, and goes on his merry way. In The Slash: Bloody to Fair, Firo tells Christopher that, if he wants a hostage, he should take him instead of Jacuzzi. Unfortunately, Chris knew he was immortal and promptly shot the offer down.

Insane Troll Logic: Graham sends a note to Jacuzzi's gang, telling him to come alone. So the entire gang shows up individually, claiming they all came alone. Graham, as the resident Fauxlosophic Narrator, considers this perfectly reasonable. Also, Issac and Miria's robberies, which typically involve some form of Missing Steps Plan. Graham recalls a time when "Professor Russo" gave him the following logic lesson: It's legal to kill someone self-defense, so if you tell someone to kill you and then kill them, it's totally okay. Makes sense, doesn't it?

Bait-and-Switch Credits: The intro is a good showcase of the show's light-hearted tone and high energy. It does not, however, display much hint of the amount of gorn, gang violence, and overall insanity some of the audience might have wanted to look out for.

Legacy Character: The name "Felix Walken" is passed down from one assassin to another. By 1934, it's shared between multiple people—Claire and five of Sham's bodies. Claire bought the name from a woman around 30 years old, and Sham's bodies were given the name by a man who now calls himself "The Former Felix Walken".

Spoiler Opening

comment
Spoiler Opening: Ennis's being a homuculus (her image appears in a bottle of elixir; also, it's not too big of a spoiler, since we find out this fact on her second appearance or so) and Dallas's eternal drowning. You'd mistake it for a symbol, though. Thanks to the Anachronic Order of the series, the attentive viewer will realize from the train station scene in the very first episode that Firo, Ennis, Maiza, Isaac, Miria, Czeslaw, and the Gandors will all survive their various ordeals none the worse for wear, and that Ennis and Firo will be together. Aversion - Although the Young Conductor is featured among the mix of named characters in the opening, with the same amount of face time, he's not named. Although he is carrying a bottle of wine, or Vino

Alchemy Is Magic

Alchemy Is Magic: Alchemy in this series allows the summoning of demons and was able to produce the Elixir of Life. Lampshaded by Szilard Quates, who's angry about the divorce from science, declaring that demon-summoning is not alchemy and complaining that devouring disregards conservation of mass. Sufficiently Analyzed Magic: So, naturally, the solution is to figure out why it can break the established laws of physics through empirical analysis.

Cast Herd: Part of the Loads and Loads of Characters leads to this where there are multiple factions of people with little identity beyond their group. Includes the the Martillo Family, the White Suits, and the Lemures for starters. The more prominent characters also tend to sort out into noticeable, if overlapping, groups. The more notable ones include: The Martillos/Alveare crew: Firo, Maiza, Ronnie, Ennis, Czeslaw, Randy and Pezzo. The Gandors: Luck, Keith, Berga, Claire, Tick and Maria. The Russos: Ladd, Lua, Placido, Graham, Ricardo and Christopher. Jacuzzi's Gang: Jacuzzi, Nice, Nick, Donny, & Chane. Huey's crew: Huey, Liza/Hilton, Sham, Hong Chi-Mei, Christopher, Tim, Adele, Frank, Rail, Sickle, the Poet. The Advena Avis survivors: Maiza, Czes, Sylvie, Nile, Denkuro and Elmer (Victor and Huey technically count, but they tend to stick to their own groups). Isaac and Miria.

Oh, and a reporter. Unfortunately for them, all of them chose the same train.

2002 — On two luxury cruises! With one Cult kidnapping women for their purposes and hijacking one of the ships, one group of assassins getting in their way and hijacking the other ship, and seven immortals on board, two of whom are on their honeymoon. This time the hostages are barely mentioned at all. For indirect Lampshade Hanging, the prologue starts with a Mask Maker rambling about Speed 2: Cruise Control.

Gorn: Being essentially Pulp Fiction with alchemy!, you have to expect some violence. And by "some", we mean "an absurdly huge level of." Fingore: You have to wonder just what Ryohgo Narita has against fingers, given the number of times they're utterly maimed in this series.note 33 fingers get sliced, mangled, bitten off, crushed, or destroyed over the course of the 16 episode anime, an average of 2.0625 fingers per episode, though there are only 8 instances of Fingore.

Cultural Cross-Reference: Issac and Miria tend to do this. Unfortunately because they are standout examples of The Ditz and Cloud Cuckoo Lander tropes, they are often bizarre in their inaccuracy. Firo is a member of the Camorra living in New York City. By 2001, he has mastered Japanese on his own through reading manga. Elmer is in much the same boat - He learned Japanese from playing imported games and Visual Novels. After Maiza tracked him down in 2001, he decided to go join Denkuro in Japan for a year or so and spent the whole time in arcades and video game stores (as well as watch Shizuo hand Nile his ass).

One Steve Limit: Semi-averted with variations on a name. There's a trio and a pair of related names, although all belong to secondary or lesser characters: Gustav St. Germain (the vice-president of the Daily Days), Gustavo Bagetta (the mafioso who kidnaps Eve), and Goose (the leader of the black suits aboard the train); Nicholas Wayne (the information broker) and Nick (the blond member of Jacuzzi's crew). And then there's the Felix Walken, of which there are at least five running around town.

Innocent Cohabitation: At the end of The Grand Punk Station, the Gandors mention that Firo and Ennis have been living together for about a year without so much as a close-mouthed kiss. Claire briefly wonders if Firo's even human after hearing about it. This trope is also lampshaded by Nick, after Nice mentions that it's the first time that Jacuzzi had kissed her in the 10 years she's known him.
