Editorial Reviews

If it's lost, they'll get it back. Doesn't sound difficult, but when you throw in strange mutant powers and back it up with one of the top manga franchises in North America, it's easy to understand by GET BACKERS is such a fan-favorite anime series!

The artwork and story was good.

Ok enough about the characters....you will just have to watch the show to see all of them and what their specific jobs are in it.

I'd recommend this series to any anime fan that enjoys good stories, a little mystery, fast paced action, and lots of humor.

Getbackers is a fun 26 episode romp centering around Ban Midou and Ginji Amano, the Getbackers; a recovery service with a 100% success rate. It's true, they're good at what they do, but when it comes to money... let's just say the first time we are introduced to them, they are sleeping in their car with a bar tab up the wazoo. The money gods do not smile on them often, and many of their jobs do not pay much at all.

Though the show has a feel of a "boss of the week" series, the show delves into the lives of the two recovery agents and those of their past and present. Ban Midou has a special ability called the Jagan or "evil eye" that gives an illusion to whoever looks him in the eye for one minute. Ginji Amano has the ability to generate electricty in his body. You will see this often. The other characters in the show have their share of abilites as well. Shido is a beastmaster and has the ability to communicate with animals. Kazuki Fuuchoin can manipulate koto (harp) strings as weapons or as spying threads. Then there is Akabane (Dr. Jackal) who stores deadly scapels in his body and has a special liking for Ginji, much to his dismay.

It's action packed, hilarious, and even a pinch of serious as the Limitless Fortress, the link to most of the characters' pasts, comes up repeatedly near the end of each season. It's a great series and not to be missed. Not for those who want something deep and meaningful, but if you want hilarity and a little bit of butt-kicking, this is the show for you.

I happen to get this from a friend who probably got it from here. I found out about this anime a while back about 3 years ago and was curious about what this would be like. When i watched the first episode i was like this is it? Thats what this is about? I was like what is this. But i was still drawn to it to find out that it got much deeper. More into action. More humor. More Mystery. I fell in love with a new anime. This anime is amazing. I do agree with Lakota Girl . Its very good give it a try and yea its like yu yu hakusho. It is worth the money trust me...

I had heard a lot about this series and decided to give it a try by renting the first disc. I was immediately hooked. I love Yu Yu Hakusho for it's blend of action and humor and this series delivers on both counts as well.

The characters are diverse and interesting and the world they live in is much like Yu Yu Hakusho in that it is almost real and modern day, but not quite.

I'd recommend this series to any anime fan that enjoys good stories, a little mystery, fast paced action, and lots of humor.

I'm new to Anime so probably not the person to really be commenting on this. That being said, I bought this for my son as a birthday present and consider myself lucky. This is not a show for little ones as there is plenty of violence and some low key sexual issues. I guess the best comment I can offer is that every time my son watches some of these I have to sit down and watch. They are riveting. Very sad that only 2 seasons were made.

I love Anime! What I find most thrilling is that the Japanese take their animation seriously but they know how to balance with slapstick comedy and deep emotion. The GetBackers was a total surprise and quickly became one of my favorites. You will become a true fan of Ban & Ginji and start saying, "Who needs Heroes?" & "X-Men who?" Come watch these guys get it back.
