this is a first look review on Baccano one of my friends told me about it and how amazing it is now my friend being Asian ya I know a bit racists but anyway he has never failed me on turning me on to some good so I of course listened to him and watched the first episode. all I have to say oh my god with in the first five minutes of the show this kid named Firo I think is asked by a homeless man for a bit of money and he gives him a what looks to be like 5 dollars as he was giving the man the money the old man was saying thank you to Firo and he said something like don’t worry about it I have plenty. Firo starts to walk away and the homeless looking man then charges at him with a knife in hand so whats Firo do not even turning around he catches the knife with his bare hand and cuts his own fingers off now my first thought was holy shit bad ass but that’s not all the fingers disintegrate into blood and then regenerate onto his hand. so lets recap that quick so old man with knife charges at boy, boy then catches knife in hand not even turning around fingers are cut off and then regenerated. now this is only the first episode and im already pumped to keep watch this I have a feeling this its going to be awesome now the word awesome I use very rear something needs to be awesome to get the word attached to it like NPH (Neil Patrick Harris for people who don’t know the shortened way) now that I have digressed greatly moving on.

story

so far from what I have gathered te story takes place in the united states or some kind of parallel universe of it te first episode took place in 1735 if I remember right around a time when they had organized crime syndicate the type of organized crime they seem to use in this anime is what looks to be the mafia with two family’s looking to kill the same guy and each other im not entirely sure yet im sure the next episode will tell more on this part of the story.

now for the whole regeneration thing im not too sure what that’s about from episode one their look to be at lest two people with this god mode like power to be killed then come back to life thought if I had to guess it has to so with some kinda of alchemy I would infer this because the started of the show has what looks like transmutation circles which if you have seen full metal alchemist you know what im talking about

length

I think this is a fairly short series its only 16 episodes long which i feel is not too long and not to short for more most series but ill let you all know more on my feels on this later

Feeling on this anime

well as you all read im pretty pumped to keep watching at this point I don’t want to grade then but i have a feeling this will be a 9 if not a 10 i may even need to make room in my top 10 for this anime

ok so this is my first post on any blog and this is definitely my first anime review blog. for starters ill start with something many people have not seen instead of going with something that everyone has posted about like Bleach or Naruto. the title to the anime i am reviewing is call AIR the title that’s viewed on the DVD box i think was called AIR TV. and for the movie that went along with this they called that AIR: The Motion Picture to start us off with this review i will jump right into the characters of the show first you have Yukito one of the main characters i guess you can call  him a wondering swordsman with out the sword but instead he has… wait for it… A PUPPET! Yukito wonders into this small town and ends up meeting a girl named Misuzu

shes kind of odd but in the same way i think that makes her even cuter and make you fall in love with her.

this anime does have many sub main characters about five of them if i remember them all one of the best sub main characters that shows up in about every episode is potato and he or she is a dog but any time potato makes it on to the screen you will probably find your self laughing at what he does.

story line

the story to this is well somewhat odd you have Yukito the wondering puppet master (as i will call him) who’s soul purpose in life was to find the girl in the sky with wings that he has to save and the only way he even knows of her is because his most and her mother and many generation have been looking to save this girl.

now to move to misuzu as iv said she is odd but she is also very clumsy she walk maybe 15 steps in a few of the episodes and falls right on her face which is not realistic at times but she’s a really silly character which makes up for that at times but sometimes shes too silly maybe too silly like the writer went overboard. not much else to say about her honestly

both main characters take some time to get used to but if you stick with this show i think you will fall in love with it like i did. if i remember right because i watched this over winter break back in December but i think they had tossed in a few flash back to the girl in the skies past which was rather interesting

Length

its was made for TV so its somewhat short its in all 13 episodes long it has 2 or 3 episodes that are kinda like a recap at the end following Misuzu’s life which you dont need to watch unless you wanted to and then they had made a movie to go with it which that too was not bad. this is an anime that can be picked up and finished in one day if you find your self likeing it

Feelings on this anime

my feelings on this anime is that its something i think people should give a try anf if you find your self still wating it then i did my job by telling you about it. now when it came to an ending i personal was a bit disapointed with it i dint think it took the direction it was going to take with Misuzu and how she was designed and how the story had progressed but some time it just happens because the writer went the way they had wanted too. now if you ask me to grade this on a scale of 1-10 i would have to say this would make a 7 this is because some of the characters as i said take more then just one episode to fall in love with i think but if you make it past the first two i think you will be surprised on how this will end
