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

Extraordinary
1 July 2006 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

This is the best anime I have ever seen. The story is about 2 man, Midou Ban and Amano Ginji, whose job is to get everythng that was lost, back. In this case, everything really means everything. I really like the doll-like ginji. He is really cute when he acted that way. Well, to be honest, maybe Ginji is the only one with this funny figure in this movie.

The movie, not only talk about their "how to get things back", but also their complex background. Well, in this movie, everyone have their own background. There are Amano Ginji, the raitei; kazuki fuuchoin (the master of string); Shido Fuyuki (beast master); Kakei Juubei (kazuki's protector); Akabane Kuuroudo aka Dr. Jackal (the best antagonist and cool character to my opinion); Himiko (poison master) and a lot more. Even the bar keeper has his own background.

Well, the story is quite complex but yet, entertaining. So,don't think about anything else that will make you confused. Enjoy the movie without questions ask. That's the best way to watch this movie.

P.S.: For a better voices, if possible, use the Japanese audio. The sound will be much more cuter than the English audio, which to my opinion, didn't suit the characters at all.

Enjoy!!!! My rating: 10/10
