Baccano is Italian for noise, but light novelest Narita translates it as "stupid commotion" in the literary source of this series. Each of the stories in the series involves several unrelated plots intersecting and crossing each other as events spiral farther and farther out of control. Immortal alchemists, mafia operated speakeasies, and many other elements of pulp fiction are mashed together for a world straight out of the movies.

In 1932, New York City, the vice president of the Daily Days newspaper, Gustav St. Germain, and his assistant, Carol, are investigating a series of strange events, and are attempting to decide when these event began, ranging from 1711 to the 1930s, and choose a "main character" from about twenty people. Earlier in the year, a member of the Runorata mafia family, Gustavo, is searching for Dallas Genoard while the Runorata fight a turf war with the Gandor mafia family, resulting in the attempted murder of Luck Gandor and his friend Firo Prochainezo of the Martillo Camorra family. Although the pair receive hundreds of bullet wounds, they completely recover in seconds. In 1931, Firo, his friend Ennis, his mentor Maiza Avaro, Luck and his two brothers await the arrival of the transcontinental express train Flying Pussyfoot. Elsewhere, the FBI investigates the bodies and blood lying by the Pussyfoot's tracks and finds a severely injured Ladd Russo lovingly telling Lua Klein that he will kill her. Further down the tracks, men fish luggage out of a river as Chane Laforet floats by on a suitcase. After the train pulls into New York, Firo, Ennis, and Maiza greet Isaac Dian and Miria Harvent while a woman in fatigues limps into the station, and Nice Holystone supports an injured Jacuzzi Splot. An unharmed Czeslaw Meyer also steps off the train.
