Here’s an idea

What if Isaac grew up in a museum? Like, Addams family style? 

We know Isaac has a very broad, disjointed knowledge of very specific trivia and historical stories. Imagine a little kid growing up playing pretend around the exhibits, learning to read off the plaques and making up stories about how the princes in the Story of the Four Kingdoms faced off with Billy the Kid (and regaling an impressed equally smol Miria with his knowledge!)

We also know he grew up in a house reminiscent of a mansion on Millionaire Row. Think of a museum really fast- lots of marble, broad staircases and high ceilings. Sounds pretty mansion-y to me!

(I haven’t read the novels past the anime, so it might not hold up but it’s a good theory so far)

As I see another “Look, free PDFs!” post, I want to remind everyone:

Baccano!’s novels are licensed, the first is out, the second comes out August 23rd.  They’re also available digitally, and I think in several countries - check your local Amazon.

Durarara!!’s novels are licensed, the first three are out, the fourth comes out July 19th.  They’re also available digitally, and I think in several countries - check your local Amazon.

I won’t whine about Vamp or Etsusa Bridge, which aren’t licensed.  And yes, I know why people don’t want to wait 4 years for Time of the Oasis or somesuch.  But man, support the licensed English translation, PLEASE.  We don’t want either series cancelled for poor sales, especially Baccano, which has a smaller fandom than DRRR.  The digital editions, which you can read on your phone, are $7.99 in North America.  That’s affordable even for college kids.

So, drawing fanart of Baccano! is a pain in the ass without any frame of reference in terms of character heights, so I went out of my way and took this character sheet from the anime art book and used my terrible, terrible estimation skills to come up with approximate heights of the characters listed.

It obviously doesn’t list EVERYONE, but a lot of the main characters are there. I thought it’d be useful for other fans looking for references.

Please, leave all overcoats, canes, and top hats with the doorman
From that moment you’ll be out of place and underdressed
I’m wrecking this evening already and loving every minute of it
Ruining this banquet for the mildly inspiring and…

When you’re in black slacks with accentuating, off-white, pinstripes
Whoa, everything goes according to plan

1935-D Summary

The final, all-encompassing ruckus of the 1930s moves into its climax!

Whose gamble will be the one to pay off in the end? The casino party has already begun. The first day appears to have passed without incident, and before long will become the second…

The Runorata Family dealer Melvi, kidnapping Ennis, confining her in a ship.  Firo, openly angry with Melvi and going against him with everything he has. The Gandor brothers, scoping out their enemies despite their distress on Firo’s behalf. Ladd, working together with the Gandors, despite having his own axe to grind. Chane, who seems destined for a battle to the death with Ladd. Neider, on the run from Chane’s attack. And Isaac, and Miria, and a giant bear, who appeared thanks to a doctor who took care of Neider. And thus, heedless of their intentions, the eddies of fate rage on. Bringing them all together, it would not be unthinkable to call the beginning ruckus “the second Flying Pussyfoot incident”–

And Huey quietly watches the city, scheming.
