You know what I should be doing on my 4 day weekend? Homework. You know what I’m not doing? That’s right. You guessed it. Homework.
i’m here to convince you to watch baccano! a show that has a staff that is almost exactly identical to that of durarara!!
not to mention that baccano! and durarara!! where written by the same person!
the execution of durarara!! and baccano! is almost identical due to this.
honestly, i like baccano! a lot more than i like durarara!! and i think that considering how large the durarara!! fanbase is, the baccano! fanbase should be pretty large too, but it’s actually rather small, which is pretty disappointing!
so here are a couple factoids before we really delve in!
- baccano! is similar to durarara in multiple ways, including the execution of plot, and even opening sequences (the way the “last time on…” intersects into the opening
- the main characters of baccano! isaac and miria, show up multiple times in durarara!, their first appearance being episode 11. in many fans opinion, this is an easter egg, but considering how similar the two universes are, i would say this implies that they do in fact take place in the same universe
- the fullmetal alchemist series and baccano! deal with similar themes, so if you’re a fullmetal alchemist or durarara! fan, at least give baccano! a try
- the art style in baccano! and durarara is almost exactly the same
- the dub of baccano! is fantastic, and if you do end up watching baccano! try out the dub
- baccano! is available for free on youtube (uploaded by funimation in sub), funimation’s website, as well as hulu
here are some helpful links
baccano! is set in the 1930’s for the most part, with cutbacks to other time periods.
ok, now to the plot itself!!
most of baccano! takes place on a train named, “the flying pussyfoot” and covers the events that take place on it! baccano! basically covers what happens on the train at first, showing you clips, and then delves into how all of this began, giving you backstories for the characters, etc
baccano is 13 episodes long, and has 3 specials to cover some of the light novels.
overall, baccano! is fantastic, and if you’re into any of the shows listed above, i highly recommend you check it out!

“Nico claimed that he liked to keep watch because he had good eyes. Hazel knew that wasn‘t the reason. The top of the mast was one of the few places on board where Nico could be alone.”
