I'm not really one for tragedy stories, but I watched the live action movie years ago, way before I knew about the manga. The movie became one of my favorites and I just rewatched it last night.

The story, for me, is quite original. I mean, a girl with Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP), an illness which also might be described as the allergy to the sun? I don't think read more

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.

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.
