    I really like this first episode.

    It does a good job of setting up the premise of the story, and introducing you the characters along the way. I really like that they present the idea that a story does not have to be viewed in a chronological fashion (Where the beginning would probably be years and years before The Flying Pussyfoot incident) or even have a real point in time where it began.

    The discussion about who the main character always make me laugh a little because I'm such a Firo fangirl. Firo for life. <3

    Totally ready to get a better grip on this story since we are re-watching it.

    I've re-watched this show several times already and every time, I find something new that I like about it. Wonder how I'll be captivated this time around.

    I've always loved the part where Gustav asks Carol if she thinks that they could be the main characters, or the characters who begin the story, considering that from our point of view they are the one's who begin the story by discussing/introducing the other characters and whatnot.

    I also loved this quote by Gustav, right before the montage of mobsters knocking over speakeasies:

    "Still, there are many more characters to choose from. And depending on whom you focus on, the same incident will behave like the surface of the ocean, Changeless yet ever changing. In other words, there maybe but one event but there maybe as many stories as there are people to tell them."

    For everyone else who's re-watching, I highly recommend watching it in English Dub. This is one of the few anime where the dub is of superior quality to the Japanese subbed version.

    First episodes was interesting I picked up on a few more things this time around.
    Lol when Carol called Firo " Main character ish" since he's kinda gritty and not completely do gooder hero like but he's still one of my fav along with Ladd and Chane

    Im trying it Dub this time cause of the accents

    The dub is really good and fits the show better since its based in America.

    Yeah, I'm watching it in the dub too. I find the accents really funny and kinda great at the same time.

    This show. I found it kinda cool how in a sense it's basically telling you how the show is many different things happening at the same time, as such, there are sort of main characters for each event when focused on it. If that makes sense?

    Ep one was good. OSTs are really great. Watching it dub also. u.u Wish I was watching better quality, but w/e. ._.

    About Firo, he walks a very thin line between being a "good guy" or a "bad guy." With his youthful appearance and how nice and amiable he seems, it's often easy to forget that he's a camorrista; it's easy to forget that he's a gangster who has sworn to kill if ordered to do so by the camorra.

    That's one of the things that I really like about him.

    EDIT: Forgot to talk about Chane :lelenny5

    One of the things I find most interesting about Chane is her origins. If you don't know what I mean by that, then I won't be able to emphasize without spoiling some of her backstory.

    Indeed. Tbh, I've never watched the subbed version for this same reason.

    Ikr? True to its name; Baccano = Ruckus/Racket.
    "In this anime paths don't cross, they clash!"

    I also really like the Ost's :)

    All these characters that have been mentioned compose an ensemble cast, meaning that they all (about 12 of them I believe) are equally important to the story. There is no single main character because they are all main characters. That being said, it's been debated who the main characters would be if one had to choose -- I believe most people agree that it would be Isaac and Miria, since their crazy antics connect all of the characters through 1 degree of separation.

    Guess that answers Gustav's question :zaru

    Didn't know that, but it does. xD
    Well put. xD

    u.u

    I would agree. But the story wouldn't be the same without any one of them doing as much as they already do. :zaru

    Indeed. :happymm

    :lewd You already know how much I like this anime.

    And indeed, I agree there. They're all pretty crazy and un-predictable. On that subject, I'd love to talk about another character, but I suppose I'll have to wait until later to talk about him :glowinglenny

    Yes. I can see how hyped you are already. xD

    Eh, everyone her has seen it, but yeah, it'd be best whilst it's fresh in the memory.

    True indeed, but I don't want to veer too far off the topic of the first episode, therefore I'll have to wait until the Episode 9 discussion to talk about him :zaru
