Based on the Dengeki Novel Prize-winning story Baccano! by avant-garde novelist Ryohgo Narita (Durarara!!), the popular light novel series-turned critically acclaimed anime series is back and on Blu-Ray!
Hot off the 'Roaring Twenties' and headfirst into the uncertain volatility of the 'Dirty Thirties', criminal syndicates stormed into power by bootlegging alcohol during the Prohibition Era, but the most notorious 'liquor' of all time is about to set off a violent chain reaction within the mafia underworld! Each of the gritty stories in Baccano! involves an eclectic cast of innocent and not-so-innocent, turbulent characters in several unrelated plots intersecting and crossing each other as events spiral further and further out of control. Immortal alchemists, Mafia-operated speakeasies, and many other elements of pulp fiction are brutally mashed together for a explosive massacre straight out of crime noir movies.
