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!

I could talk about the story, the characters, even the art, but I guess my colleagues here could sum up pretty well everything I could say. One thing that I'd like to point out - and it is what really draw me to the manga - is the amount of subjects that they bring (I, myself, am re-reading the manga and I am writing down all those mentions).

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 remember they used to sell like a thousand volumes of this in Borders. If I wanted a reference point to finding new things, the safest way I could put it is "find me the OPPOSITE of Getbackers." It's pretty much as much of a mindlessly pumped out cynical product as a series can get; very slick, professional art, but mostly used to emphasize full page "fanservice" (that's what kids today call tits and lady underwear, right?). Plot's neither here nor there for the most part, things are obviously made up as the story goes along, but without the grace of even the most generic ...
