    Default GetBackers

    Backstory:

     
    The Get Backers are a small two man organization that take on jobs that have to deal with getting back stolen items for high paying, or sometimes no money at all. The first member is Ginji Amano, once known as the Lightning Emperor of the Limitless Fortress. He has an amazing fighting spirit along with the power of over 100,000 volts of electricity running through his body. He has now turned into a normal fun loving guy who is truly one of the purest of hearts. Ban Midou is the second member of this organization. He's got a supernatural power of the grip of a snake, also if someone looks into his eyes at a time he chooses, he can set them in a dream state in which they believe something horrible is happening to them and end up losing the battle on their own. The first episode/manga was written around one of their new arrivals Natsumi who has lost her stuffed toy(I know that sounds a little weird, but the show gets so much more better)


    Characters:
     


    Ginji Amano:


    Seems to be the second in command, always trying to have fun no matter what. But when you get on his bad side, it could be your worst nightmare. Ginji will fight until he dies for something he cares about, and will stop at nothing. No matter what the cost.

    Ban Midou:


    Ban Midou seems to be one of the most strongest characters I have ever witnessed in a Anime/Manga series. He's got a logical sense of what's going on half of the time, but also is a viper when it comes to being backed into a corner. At one moment you could think that Midou is going to lose a battle, and just as he's about to lose it..he'll switch it around and turn the odds all into his favor.. It's actually fun to watch.

    Hevn:


    Hevn is an...exceptionally well busted woman who works as the Get Backers' negotiator. She's very good at her job, and always knows how to find them clients willing to pay high sums of money. Even, if half the time Ban and Ginji mess up the payment process.

    Natsumi:


    Natsumi is a pure-hearted girl who always seems to have an unwavering courage about the Get Backers chances to come back from a mission alive. Of course she's witnessed their will on a mission to get back whatever is lost, and no one else has.

    Paul:


    I personally like Paul's character a lot. He's the owner of a cafe that is practically the Get Backers' main HQ. Ban and Ginji never seem to have money to pay their tab, so Paul has them working and working and pretty much jumps at each client that enters the door, so they can finally pay off their tab. But, Paul isn't just a normal cafe owner. He was once a part of a famous group of thieves and can basically hack his way into any system.


    ((There is a lot more to all of this but some characters are introduced later into the story, and I wouldn't wanna ruin it before any of you can get your hands on the show or the manga.))

    It's from what I've seen a very interesting watch. I've only seen maybe six/seven episodes though.


    This thread actually reminded me I need to watch the rest of it. So, well played, OP.

    A little more yaoi than I'd like, but overall a pretty good show. Could have done with a more complete ending though.
    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    I agree, I wish it would of completed the ending more. But I hear, in the manga they fully end it.

    Just be prepared for a non ending last episode. Never came to any real conclusion.

    I was kinda figuring that since;

     
    What with all the talk about Babylon City (I'm on ep 46 atm) and yet how long they left it for the series to go back to anything revolving around the Limitless Fortress. I was expecting them to pull a 10-episode Hunter x Hunter on me for the last 'arc' of the series (there's some building in Hunter x Hunter that got a LOT of episodes put around it) but there's barely 4 episodes left and I guess they're probably not going to get too dramatic.

    Non conclusive endings. Blargh. Makes me want to read the manga to find out what the hell happens afterwards or whatnot. :l

    @Ranshiin Doubt it, but I hope they eventually continue the anime. Same with Pandora Hearts.

    If you read up on the series, they give an ending. I do wish they did make one for the television series, but oh well. Knowing the ending is everything.

    Maybe they were anticipating making a second series when they made the anime, or something else that prompted them to make such a rather ... well, to be blunt the ending was crap. I thought Soul Eater's was bad ... Get Backers just thrashed it to the curb.

    Oh well. One can hope.

    Lol, told ya. Yeah, I think that was the plan and funding got cut. Though it's enough as is to take at three points off it in a ten point rating system. Which is a shame as the rest was quite enjoyable.

    I definitely wouldn't mind a second series. I though the second saga was a bit week but overall Getbackers was amazing. The persistent villain (the guy with the knives) is one of my favorite anime villains ever.
