Baccano! has to be one of my favorite animes I've seen all year. Once I got through the second episode, I knew I needed to make a video with it. The problem was finding the right song.
Then a friend introduced me to "Swing Shift!" by the Jumpin' Jimes. My friend knows a member of the band and thought the song would go well with Baccano!
My main goal with this video was to get the audience interested in watching Baccano!
The video uses download footage, thus the quality isn't as high as I would have liked, I'm looking forward to the day Baccano! is brought over to the US so I can take advantage of direct DVD rips. But given that the series aired in early 2008, I worked with what was available.
The video relies more on the momentum of the music itself, rather than on the lyrics themselves.
