Getbackers 8 was bad. I guess I'm just sick of this storyline. They have been trying to get the IL for 4 volumes now, which means over 400 pages of senseless and goofy battles with characters screaming out their attacks like "Mera no Shiora Viper Embrace!", "Maya Flood Engulf!", "Water Cannon!" and "Poison Moth!" It's all become a tad too stupid for me so I'm going to stop reading this manga. The characters have not evolved over 8 volumes. If anything, they've gotten shallower. Ginji is especially annoying. We're supposed to believe that he used to be some heartless killer and gangleader, but now he's a dangerously effeminate and lapdog weirdo who hangs all over Ban. The art is just as great as it's always been, but so many panels are squeezed onto a small page that you really have to strain your eyes sometimes to see the asides in small print. Some of the edges have been cropped, making some of the lettering come close to being cut off. The writing of this title really destroyed any interest I had in it. Oh, for the good old days when Ban and Ginji were homeless and would take a job like finding a lost videogame! I think Aoki wanted to emulate American superhero comic books and unfortunately succeeded. In my mind, the book has been on a downward spiral since the 4th volume, just about the time this storyline started up. It should have taken one volume to tell it.
