I just happen to stumble upon an amv of it on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiSI_bYVl24) and it really intrigued me. I decided to check it out since it's only 13 episodes + 3 OVA's. And I absolutely couldn't take my eyes off it. I finished the whole series by 3 in the mourning. And I'd really like for some of you to check it out since it's become my new favorite anime.

What's it like? It's about the mafia in the early 1900's
Well.... there's 3 storylines going on at 1 time. It's very interesting on how they do it. From episode 1-4 you have no idea what's going on, then it all starts to come together quiet rapidly. It's placed in new york mainly. Each storyline has a different year (1930,1931,1932). But what I like most is by the last OVA u no longer have any questions about what happened to all the characters. And there's good, clean comedy in it presented by .. Isaac and Miria mainly.

Although it's confusing at the beginning, your brain will hurt less as episodes continue. And by the time you finish it, you'll know every one of the characters in the OP and what their background is.

Keep in mind, there's a lot of gore in the 1931 storyline (train).

And here's a pic so you know what the graphics/drawings/artwork looks like:

Favorite joke in it was:
When Isaac and Miria robbed a clock shop and said they like to "steal time" xD
