Synopsis

Three DVD-only episodes made from the light novels, which flesh out characters and plot events from the original series and establish closure to the story as Carol and the Vice President return to New York.

Background

The Baccano! Specials are based on 1931 The Grand Punk Railroad Revisited, a bonus novel that came with the Baccano! drama CD The Grand Punk Railroad. The bonus novel was later expanded into 1931 Another Junk Railroad, the 14th novel of the main light novel series.

The Good:
- It was a joy to see many of the characters is a more casual setting.
- Production quality was retained.
- Rail Tracer!

The Bad:
- The eccentric nature of the new antagonist is tiresome, especially compared to Ladd.
- There's really no story; just more insight into the lives of some of the characters.
- A good portion of the characters had only minor roles.
- The ending.

Conclusion:
I gave Baccano (the series) an 8, and it just wouldn't be fair to give the OVA the same score because the series was so much better. If you loved Baccano, however, the OVA is a must-see.

Title: Baccano! OVA

Anime: The Baccano! OVA was produced by Brains Base (who also produced Natsume Yuujin-Chou and the Kimi ga Nozomu Eien ~Next Season~ OVA) and was directed by Takahiro Omori (director for Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori and Natsume Yuujin-Chou). The three episodes were released on DVDs 5 (released February 27th, 2008), 7 (released April 23rd, 2008), and 8 (released May 28th, 2008) as bonus episodes in Japan; it is unclear if, in Funimation's licensing of the series Stateside, the OVA is included in what was licensed.

Ah~ A continuation of one of the best series' out there.

Story: 10/10
Basically, this OVA picks up RIGHT where Baccano left off, showing the outside story of Graham Spector, and his plot to capture Eve Genoard. His plan however, is ruined with the showing of.... Claire. Its a story that really wasn't needed, but all the more enjoyable to watch play out.

Art: 10/10
Hasn't changed from the original series, which I am grateful for. Usually, more than often, the OVA art changes dramatically compared to the original series. This didn't. the art was unchanged and still very well detailed as it should be.

Sound: 10/10
Same kind read more

There is a belief that every story must have a beginning and an end. However, what people fail to realize is that true stories have no specific beginning or end, they just keep on going even after you think they are done.

Does the final 3 episodes of Baccano conclude the series is spectacular fashion? Or are lame attempt to keep the franchise alive?

Story: 9/10

Taking place after the events of the finale, these 3 special OVA episodes attempt to wrap up the several dangling plot threads that were left hanging at the end of show, and mainly on new characters Graham Specter's attempt to locate Dallas read more
