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.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
GetBackers; basically a story about 2 guys getting back various items which were either lost or stolen, this premise in and of itself is quite original. However the genius of this piece ends there.

Movements lacked grace and fluidity, also great deal of shortcuts [lights, blurs, disappearances then reappearances etc] were used in the fight scenes. And everything was pitch black!!! It's one ...

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 ...
