“Depending upon which of these interesting characters you focus, the same incident will behave like the surface of the ocean, changeless yet ever changing. In other words, there may be but one event that has as many stories as there are people to tell them." ---Ryohgo Narita

The Story

Baccano! (バッカーノ!), which Narita translates as 'stupid commotion', is Italian for 'ruckus'. An ongoing light novel series with over twenty volumes published, it takes place across three eras—the early 1700s, 1930s, and 2000s—and presents its story arcs in anachronistic fashion. Though the arcs have their own stories to tell, they all fit within a grand, overarching narrative three centuries in the making, with events in the 1700s still causing shockwaves in 2003. Immortal alchemists, mafiosi, camorristi, bootleggers, assassins, and larger-than-life individuals from all walks of life find themselves inexorably swept into the spiral eternal...

It is the first of Narita's works, and takes place in the same universe as Durarara!!, Vamp!, Etsusa Bridge, and Wednesdays Smiling with Otsuberu.
