Baccano!: Volume 1
A Mafia turf war is raging on the mean streets of the big apple, a place where regular Joes bounce between backdoor booze joints and the breadline. But this caper ain't about a simple gangland brawl.
It's about hoods who can't seem to die proper after catching a bullet or give between the eyes. Sadistic hit-men and the dames they love, mad bombers going boom, monsters going bump and alchemists bootlegging an elixir of eternal life.
For now, how's about we star on a train called the Flying Pussyfoot. Seems something's gone sour on the rails between Chicago and New York, and the bodies are stacking up next tot he tracks. It's a s good a start as any for a story where every Dick and Jane plays the lead.
