Some misc. Baccano stuff this week
The バッカーノ (Baccano in Japanese) tag on twitter has been quite active recently! 3 days ago they had gun’s and roses as bgm on live national television (someone mentioned fuji TV but I’m not 100% sure). I believe it was played when the fireworks were shown during a summer festival somewhere in Japan. Tweets about the opening kept flooding in, and the response was incredibly positive.
Enami Katsumi (illustrator of the LNs) mentioned that he is happy when the books he had worked on turns into anime. He said Baccano anime is WOWOW. I agree, I agree very much!!!
The Baccano marathon-run that starts at 6pm on Sunday next week (Japan time) has reached 13.5k ppl planning to watch it!! 7 days left and the number is rising steadily~ The actual number will be much higher since the amount above are the ppl who have booked to be notified when the streaming airs (called timeshift on the site). If I somehow can bypass that with VPN I would love to join them, however I heard that VPNs don’t work on nico D: Nicovideo is the Japanese equivalent to YouTube. It’s their largest video streaming site.
Please don’t pay any attention to this, but I- I have a feeling that b-baccano still has its fair chance of g-getting another season…. I HAVE NOT SPOKEN :x
