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.

i started watching this anime hoping that there would be some homoaffective relationship in it, but to my sadness, unfortunately there isn't! the characters ban and gingi carry a good chemistry between them, they would certainly be a beautiful couple! although not everything was as expected, i really liked the story, especially the episodes where the duo participated in unusual missions, like when they rescued artwork and resolved issues within the mugenjou. the approach of a lawless place is interesting, in which people outside it avoid relating due to clandestinity, violence, etc. really liked the character akabane, because of his attractive design, personality and voice; ...

I was obsessed with this anime when it came out. I made my dad get me the full season 1 box set on DVD, and I still have it. I even got the first volume of the manga, and I showed it to the other kids at school. Probably not a good idea because there was a lady jerking off in the first couple chapters.
I would rank this very low after watching many more shows since then. If you're a little teen that loves shonen & action this is going to be great. It's super cheesy, super Hammy, and very "cool". If you're an adult ...
