Funimation Licenses Baccano! Anime (Updated)

posted on by Egan Loo
Aniplex's adaptation of Ryohgo Narita's light novels set in the early 1930s

The North American distributor Funimation has announced in its Monday video update that it has acquired the Baccano! anime series. Funimation's official website for the series is streaming the first English-subtitled episode for users who type in the anime's featured train (Flying Pussyfoot) as the password. Takahiro Ōmori directed this Aniplex adaptation of Ryohgo Narita's light novel series about immortal alchemists, thieves, and killers whose paths meet in the United States during the Roaring Twenties.

Update: The light novels and the anime are mostly set in the 1930s. Thanks, Andrew Cunningham.
