Review: Get Backers


Plot Summary: Ban Mido and Ginji Amano are a recovery duo infamously known as “GetBackers.” Ban possesses two special powers: the “Snake Bite” (his hands have a gripping power of 200kg) and the “Evil Eye” (anyone who looks into his eyes will be locked into a powerful and nightmarish hallucination). Ginji, on the other hand, has the ability to generate thousands of volts of electricity from his body. Together, they run a freelance business of recovering anything lost or stolen from a client – and they claim a 100% success rate at their job.

This is one amazing anime that I didnt get enough of. Ban and Ginji are the best of friends and they are running there recovery service out of a coffee shop that they try to freeload off of. Whats great about this anime, is that every character you meet in this anime has a story which ties into the central theme. And its great how the story keeps going around and what people do. There is a lot seriousness to this anime which you get pulled into, specifically the story line and what happens, because friends become enemies and enemies become allies it all revolves around the matter of business. So its great watching this anime and see all the mini-plots in the main plots! Each character has a different power, and I looked forward to finding that out and how they fight each other! I think its very well done, and an anime which I got pulled into greatly. I didnt get enough of it, even with 10 dvds I felt like I wanted more of this! I really recommend this anime series for those who like a litte fighting with a great story line intertwined with comedy!
