Baccano! Opening Parodies refer to a series of parody videos for the opening theme movie in the anime adaptation of Japanese light novel series Baccano! (Japanese: バッカーノ!)[1] written by Ryōgo Narita who is also the author of Durarara!!. The parody videos has been occasionally posted to the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND) since 2007.


The TV anime series for Baccano! aired 13th episodes from July to November 2007 at a Japanese satellite broadcasting station WOWOW. The opening movie was made as a homage to the opening title of a 2000 film Snatch[2] because the author is known as a fan of Guy Ritchie[3] and Baccano! is much inspired by his ensemble-cast dramas.

The anime didn't get so much attention compared to other anime titles in that year because it wasn't aired on regular TV channels. However, its American film-flavored opening credit movie has been sometimes set to a subject for mimicking among amateur animators, and there are many hand-drawn animated parodies on online video hub sites. The amount of those parody videos posted to NND is over 100[4] and many of them are reprinted to YouTube.[5]
