Synopsis

Blonde, hip, pragmatic and cool, Ginji Amano has the power to generate currents with his body like an electric eel. Brunette, equally hip, bespectacled and rambunctious, Ban Mido has the mystically mysterious 'Evil Eye,' the power to create illusions in the minds of his foes. Together, they are the GetBackers, the best retrieval team in the world. They can get back anything taken from clients, and their success rate is (almost) 100%! However, first they have to get some clients—and soon—or this spry detective duo will starve on the streets!

ill skip the summery since we can all read the above. Anyways 10 out of 10 best manga series ive read. The story has many connections to real life it talked about the christian bible and jesus. It talked about the story of god and his archangels in one part. It made connections with world war 2 in another part. It even has the witch hunt and many others. The art work is very unique its not like a beautiful painting like in series such as ai yori aoshi but are very detailed sketches. Many of the setting are in slums and allyways that is read more

Ok everyone: take a sit and listen up. This be one of my all time fav mangas (and animes) right here-- has been since I was in middle school. But I don't rec it to everyone because of a couple reasons, so here we go:

Story: 10

I love the story, what can I say? There's action, there's comedy, there's plot twists, and some serious stuff going down. I love the supernatural powers, the inclusion of historical aspects (like WWII and witch hunting), I loved the inclusion of tarot cards (in a later arc)-- it's fantastic. A main reason I don't rec it to some of my read more

Get Backers it's a great manga, the anime adaptation fell short to caught up the spirit of the manga, the final arc is one of the best arcs i've seen, there are wonderfull new characters, back story for the known characters, epic fights, and a great ending explaining the world they live in and what the characters seek and enjoy. Overall a enjoyable manga, that shows the bonds of friendship and thrusting one another, give it a shot!

I cam to Getbackers from the anime. A shoujo girl at heart I couldn't believe that my anime club was showing me this series about battling. And yes, it is a series about battling, and retrieving, and all that jazz. But at its very heart it is about relationships, and friendships, and honour.

The story follows the Getbackers, Ban and Ginji. There is an underlying sense of the story moving towards and end, with some completion in mind. Whilst there are a few episodic adventures, the stories are primarily multi-volume, intense and detailed. You learn a lot about the people, their histories, and their friendships. read more
