Andrew Cunningham from AnimeOnDVD said it was the demon, I know he has at least read the first 5 novels thus far for sure. If Seven Seas pick up Baccano! he will probably be translating it for them. He does Boogiepop for the Seven Seas and does translations for others like Faust, Kino no Tabi, Missing, Gosick, the Death Note novel, and Parasyte.

The demon is probably the character designers only real fault, looks way to much like Luck Gandor, but every other major/supporting character is unique enough looking, considering how big the cast is I guess you can't really fault him for that one slip up.

That would be awsome if the novels were actually picked up.

Wow this was one of the best anime series I have seen this year. For a series so short, they sure know how to grab the audiences' attention.

yeah. You watch it one episode per day, and you lose track of things (just like my brother). I wonder how the Jap can watch one episode per week, and still manage to remember all the little pieces and piece them together!

I watched the show as it was released by Ayu and they sometimes had longer than a week between releases, yet I didn't lose track of things. Therefore it is far from impossible.

Going by the book covers Huey seems to be really involved in the two "Alice In Jails" light novels which are #8 & #9 in the series and are set in 1934 which is 3 years after the events of the The Grand Punk Railroad.

When you're only covering the first 4 novels out of 13 (and I'm sure there is more on the way) it's pretty much impossible for such a massive cast to get enough air time and development for all of them... I like Heuy but it looks like it focuses on him in the above two mentioned books as well as novel #11 which is set in 1705.

Yeah there was sometimes 2-3 weeks in between episodes and I still kept track of most things or remembered them after seeing something that went down that line.

My biggest problem was I kept forgetting that the Grand Punk Railroad took place in 1931, for some reason I kept reversing the stuff that was going on in 1932 with the stuff in 1931. Stupid question but when Firo and Luck get shot at in epi 2 (I think) and Firo's fingers reattach...that happens in 1932 right? If not please correct me cuz again, Im a bit confused on when Firo and Luck became immortal.

I think so; Firo says he is one of the Castillos, doesn't? And he and Luck were shoot down by Runoratas... They are at war, and that happens in 1931-32.

Oh, I see, I was thrown off since I thought that happened in 1932 So really the final epi 13 happened in 1930 right before the train incident? I think I need to watch Baccano one more time straight through Though marathoning 7-13 did help alot.

You are confused. Part of episode 13 happened in 1930, part happened in 1931 and part happened in 1932. Most episodes took place in multiple time periods and if you didn't catch that you must be utterly befuddled by the show.

Yeah I go that, Im just saying the very end part (sorry didnt specify what part of 13) took place in 1930 since thats when the party is going on.

Yup. You got it now. That was the party that was taking place to celebrate Firo's entry into the mob, just before the showdown with Szillard.

just had to say that this was a great series...
i marathoned everything a few days ago and the day after that i rewatched the whole series then rewatched it for the second time the day after...
and eventhough i have a ton of backlogged anime the rewatches were not in vane...

i learned/discovered/noticed a few things in every watch...
like in my second watch i noticed that Chane was signaling Vino that she can't talk...
and on my third rewatch i noticed Chane jumping off the train in the background while Nice's group were dropping their treasure off...
also... in every watch i'm wondering what's the reason why the Gandor's didn't eat Dallas' group... were they that sadistic that they would let them suffer eternal drowning... and it's impossible that they couldn't know about eating immortals since they all watched Firo eat Quates...

this anime imo really needs to be watched a few times to really appreciate...
i can't believe this was in my backlog for such a long time...
and here's hoping that there'll be a sequel coming soon...

I think they just didn't want to eat Dallas' little group. They were all "made men" while Dallas and his group were just little punks who weren't worth eating. Besides, they were all quite used to sinking their enemies in the river so it was mostly business as usual as opposed the bizarre and gruesome idea of eating their enemies.

Eternal drowning sounds worse to me than being eaten through someone's hand, oddly enough.
