Storyline

Ban Midou and Ginji Amano, two juvenile delinquents from the Shinjuku district of Tokyo, Japan, are also known as a pair of retrievers-for-hire called the GetBackers. Both of them possess supernatural powers to aid them in their missions. Ban has the "Jagan" (Evil Eye), which allows him to fill a target with profound hallucinations, as well as the "Snake Bite", which gives his hands 200 kilograms of gripping force. Ginji, on the other hand, can generate thousands of volts of electricity within his body at will like a human electric eel. Together, they boast an (almost) 100% success rate at retrieving objects for their clients. If only they could figure out how to keep from constantly going broke... Written by Axemblue

User Reviews

A must-see anime.
9 December 2004 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This anime, along with Cowboy Bebop, revived my love of anime. It is original, full of great characters, has a healthy portion of humour, and superb animation. I cannot find more words than that to describe it, but it truly is one of the very best animeshows of all-time. The characters of Mido Ban, and Amano Ginji... it is rare to find characters that feel as if they truly are best friends. There are a few irritations though, such as a slight 'DBZ'/'Naruto'-syndrome on some of the fights, that is, they last for several episodes, and consists mostly of back flashes and silent contemplation of the various things moving through the fighters heads. It makes up for this though, with a very colourful array of characters, such as the two main characters, and of course, the personal favourite; Akabane Kurodou. This truly is, a must-see anime, for all who love the great and original.
