When I first moved to the town I live in now, my boyfriend at the time gave me a book to read while I was stuck in the hospital (long story short, I had a blood infection, it sucked) and I totally feel in love with it. Guy in a band falls for a girl on roller skates who delievers pizza. So what does he do, he orders tons of pizza. It just sounds like something one of my geeky friends in a band would do.

And then there was this.

Seriously, how could one geeky chick not be excited about this? Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim. Do you see the wacky fun that this movie will be? I’m so excited!

I’m a huge fan of the Roaring Twenties. I recently even cut my hair into a Lulu Brooks Bob and dyed it dark. That’s how much I love it. So when I was looking through the Animated selection on Hulu.com this past December, Baccano! caught my eye.

Its got some pretty ‘anime’ -esque parts, but its overall a great story with a wonderful cast of interesting, well thought out characters. The entire story is based around this secret special booze being smuggled in New York. Most of the show takes place on a train as characters reach New York for many different reasons and they all seem to intertwine seamlessly.

If you are okay with some zany anime moments, lots of bloody shoot em’ ups and twisting story lines, I totally recommend checking out Baccano! on Hulu.com.
