    the hole series is kinda of a giant flashback, that finally made sense in the last episode^^
    Love Baccano wish they make like 10 more seasons of that stuff. Really good stuff! I think that is one of the few animes that pulls of a good story using flashbacks.

    But it wasn't really flashbacks, more like they tell each character's story at a different times, and the just sort of intersect at points, and continue on with more clues and hints to the entire story. Man that was an adventure. Love the ending, where the 2 silly characters realize what they are.. lol i don't want to spoil it.

    yes i hope there'll be at least a second season.

    the authors surely have enough stuff left to produce a seond season. the light novels containt many more stories. (not only a complete story for 2001)
    But sadly baccano didnt get much attention in japan. i don't know why but the viewer ratings were quite bad. (maybe some fanservice series was aired at the same time -.-)

    well Hope dies last.
    i wish to see more of this unique and eccentric bandit couple "stealing a museum door"

    What about the flashbacks in Cowboy Bebop? Or the Rurouni Kenshin OVAs?

    Generally-speaking, I would think any anime featuring a Character With A Mysterious Past would benefit from flashbacks, provided they are executed correctly. Starting the narrative in media res is almost a standard film technique nowadays.
