Synopsis

Mido Ban and Amano Ginji are known as the Get Backers, retrievers with a success rate of 100%. Whatever is lost or stolen, they can definitely get it back. Despite their powerful abilities and enthusiastic behavior, Ban and Ginji are terminally broke no matter what they do simply because few people would actually desire to hire them. As a result, the pair of them tend to do dangerous jobs, often leading to unwanted re-encounters with their old (and dangerous) friends.

Story: Very good backstory for the starting and it expands even more as you watch. There is a fair amount of filler in the anime but all enjoyable. However the main story is one of the best I have ever seen. The only thing is it stops halfway through the story. The anime ends while the manga which it is baised off goes on further. At the end you are thinking \"Well I will just whatch the next episode\" then you realise \"WHAT I WATCHED IT ALL@!?!?! BUT IT WAS JUST GETTING GOOD!\" That is why I gave it a 8. I would have given read more

49 episodes are already too much for me. When I watch an anime that long, chances are I’ll get bored while watching it. This was the case for GetBackers.

While it is an interesting plot, I tend to become distracted when I watch it. Maybe the plot was too shonen for a girl like me who would usually prefer girly anime, but then again the fight scenes were a bit exciting. Truth be told, I enjoyed the fillers more, because they always had me laughing. Other than that, some of the arcs were too long, specially the IL arc. 15 episodes are just too much, and read more

If you've seen a couple different Shounen, Action, Anime then this one does very little to offer anything exciting and original, except some really lame fighting methods (Lady Poison).

Getbackers is a typical shounen anime about two guys who are said to be able to get anything back, which has been taken. What helps them are their interesting special abilities Amano Ginji with the power to generate electricity and Midou Ban with a 200Kg hand grip and also possessing the evil eye.

The show pretty much starts of like a typical anime, by introducing the main characters and giving them an opportunity to wow the viewers with read more

This is not an anime which has aged well. Back in the day when I first watched it sometime around early 2007, I would have ranked this close to a 9.

When I first watched it, the characters had some really mysterious powers and I loved the fight scenes. The music was awesome and fit the mood really well. I saw the Animax dub version and the voices were really well done.

The problem is, if you watch the series now, the animation is spotty. The fight scenes mostly consist of static scenes with little in terms of animation. The characters go into chibi form read more
