"Baccano", which light novelist Narita translates as "stupid commotion", is Italian for "ruckus". Each of the stories in the series involves 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 mashed together for a world straight out of the movies. Source: ANN

This show is way over-rated in my opinion.

The autors certainly were ambitious in terms of out of the ordinary concepts in terms of storytelling but with ambition sometimes comes a sort of "awkwardness" that sincerely, in my opinion, this show has.
The story is ok, and when things start to fit together they do make sense. They didn't have to be tod out of order, actually the unchronologically concept is the worse of all the "rupture" concepts that they tryed to put in.
Last but not least, I gotta say: Building up 1 good character is a hard task. Building up more than 20+ that have debt and feel made out of flesh and bone is worth of one big bow. By far the best thing in the show.

Worth watching? Well, if you have free time and want to watch something different: yes do it. Otherwise I'd say no.

This series started out slow and a bit confusing, but it will really pay off if you stick with it. One of my favorite series.
