(Sorry, this’ll be long)
Most members of the Baccano Fandom know that some novel titles are homages to bands and music, like The Grand Punk Railroad is a play on the blues rock band The Grand Funk Railroad, but not many fans know that, in fact, EVERY novel title is based off of a rock band, album…
This world is mine. I think this world may even just be a long, long dream I’m watching. You guys may just be illusions, and it can’t be proven whether or not you really exist either. In other words, this world was created with me at the center. So what will happen if I die? I don’t know. My imagination isn’t very creative; I just can’t imagine myself dying. In other words, there is no way this world can completely disappear. But if I die, then everyone will disappear. I am the only one in this world who won’t disappear. The rest are just people I see as if in a dream.

To put it another way, we were like a pile of puzzle pieces that had finally been put together. Because Jacuzzi and Nice were so perfect together, all the other puzzle pieces would just automatically gather together so they were in the center, ha ha.
