Baccano!, Vol. 1: The Rolling Bootlegs - Ryohgo Narita

Notes so far:

 

- Looks like the anime was a pretty faithful adaptation. The main differences so far are the framing scene (a modern day Japanese man talking to an immortal, instead of a 1930s reporter talking to a little girl) and a few details in the panhandler scene.

 

- This book is almost entirely dialogue. 

 

- The translation/writing is rough. Readable, but some parts are unnecessarily confusing and everyone's dialogue feels about the same. I expected this, but it's still a shame.
