Primarily set in Prohibition-era America, each of the stories in the series involves several unrelated plots intersecting and crossing each other as events spiral farther and farther out of control.


Based on a series of light novels by Ryohgo Narita, Baccano! is a strange 16 episode tale that follows several disparate groups as they come across each other under unlikely circumstances. Set during Prohibition-era America and containing a cast of alchemists, immortals, a homunculus, a demon, and several insane killers, each having different goals, allowed for a myriad of instances and connections to be made between all the characters. The story takes place in three different time periods, allowing for the connections between characters to be known as well as even deeper mysteries to be created.
