Aboard the Advenna Avis in 1711, a group of alchemists summon a demon in the hopes of gaining eternal life. The demon gives them an elixir of immortality and the method of ending their existence by "devouring" one another. Soon after, one among them begins to devour his companions. Realizing the danger posed by staying together, they scatter across the globe.

Centuries later in 1930's America, a certain federal investigator tries his best to combat the rise of organized crime during Prohibition, send a particularly infuriating terrorist to Alcatraz, and catch an outrageous thief duo. Meanwhile, the transcontinental train, the Flying Pussyfoot, begins its trail of blood across the country.

In 2002, a small group of the original Advenna Avis alchemists are on a journey to find the rest of their fellow immortals. However, there is one companion they did not expect to meet again.

Seemingly unrelated events, from a sleepy Italian city in the early 1700's to a modern luxury cruise ship traveling across the Pacific, reveal themselves to be far more connected than anyone could imagine...

PSA: Yen Press has officially translated this manga into English, and each chapter is available digitally for $1.99 on Kindle and other locations.

If you consider yourself a Baccano! fan -- if you in any way at all consider yourself invested in the characters and/or want to be 'in the know' - do yourself a favor and buy the first five chapters of the manga right now.

That's right, the first five chapters. They are a must read for any fan, and I say this without reservation. Why, you ask?

The first five chapters provide fans with a never-seen-before mini-arc -- the 1927 arc, or as read more
