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

Recommendations

It's quite similar considering that Both Black Cat and GetBackers share a main English Voice Actor (Jason Liebrecht plays both Train and Ban in both series respectively), As well the music is done by Taku Iwasaki in both series. The fact that both series have goofy characters like Sven and Ginji and the more serious character like Train and Ban. Means this is almost a clone of it.
Super powers. Mystery. Witty. Each anime has these elements in spades. Intensity seems to be the main element though. I couldn't help but notice the similarity after the first two episodes. The darkened theme running through the background plot sets up the mood for future events and the protagonists both have sort of that "in your face" approach. If you've seen one, I definitely recommend the other if only for a comparison of the two.
