These two anime have their stories and design both from a same original author, Natsume Ono. Therefore the character's personality are giving a somehow similar vibe. But the two stories are set in totally different era and world.
Saraiya goyou is the Edo, Samurai sort of stories. If you enjoy character that are mysterious, I would definitely recommend this 'Saraiya Goyou' / 'House of Five Leaves' to you.
The opposite side of an Inspector but not in a cynical way..
Both aspires crimes into the city..
There are many rules to follow, this more force into drama than dark aspects and cruel side of the laws
Jean = Shinya.. also smokes literally
Baccano has a similar feel of art-style to it, that's only the background art-style though. The character design style for them are totally distinct, but both are very well designed.
They both having a very strong music style of itself. Those kind that you would remember the tune after finished watching it.
From the same original author, Natsume Ono. Apart from the story itself, they are totally different genre, although both contain a bit of slice of life in it, I can see them heading totally different direction.
However, there is noticeable similarity inside the character design, especially the male character. If you enjoy characters with mysteriousness, 'Ristorante Paradiso' is also going to be an enjoyable romance for you.
Both are set in a world of political strife and mystery. The characters are clever and vigilant. The art style is also similar, catering to a more mature audience, and the overall atmosphere surrounding these series is riddled with tension and secrecy.
Besides bread, both shows actually explore a wide range of cultures, customs, and cuisines more or less rooted in reality. The cultures explored in ACCA are more rooted in fantasy, but are influences by real world locales/time periods; whereas Yakitate Japan explore real cuisine but in a simplified and exaggerated way such that it strays into the realms of fantasy.
The plot and style and atmosphere are all very different, but everything is linked together by baked goods, both within the story and between the two shows.
