Has anyone seen this?? if so is it any good?
Yes, it's very good...until the end that is, typical rush job.
I completely agree. GetBackers is a brilliant series, even it the end is a little bit of a let down. ^_^ It has gat stories and fab characters, well worth a look!
Great Series. Love it. Unfortunetly it ends to soon
Thsi is probably the 2nd best anime i have seen (Shaman King is first, dont know why, really enjoyed it ) it has everyhting
chracter development, humour, drama GREAT fight scenes and CHibi Ginji!
i kinda liked the end, wish there was a third series though
am i the only one who thought it sucked and was really boring?
Thanks i think ill check it out.
It's great.. Really rushed ending though, and they left a lot of things unanswered..
There's a similar thread located here. My review for the series is included there as well.
Pretty good series over all, my only gripe about it was that the artwork was a tad choppy.
I liked it.
For anyone who has seen Get Backers, what the hell was the deal with the Perfume Girl's brother. Did they just not bother answering any of the questions posed by that revelation (Why did Mido kill her brother and what is meant by a last child). If there is anyone who can give me some insight, please do.
I can't really recall, but they were the 'lost children' or something. Himiko's bro (his name escapes me right now) Wanted Ban to do it or something. I'll rewatch that bit and get back to you.
On another note, the manga should give some insight on it.
They hardly revealed anything about the Lost Children in the anime (I think a mention of the name at most), if we want answers, we'll have to consult the manga.
hey! whose Seen Getbackers! and also, say who your fav. charater is from there, if you've seen it :
I've seen it but it was a long time ago...my favourite was the guy that could control electricity or something like that..:]
edit: hmm isn't the guy i'm talking about in your siggy?;p...a thought his name started with g
lol i love that show
my fav. character is ban (sp)
GINJI! amano GINJI! :
now i remember :]...he was cool =]
I like Ginji. Haven't seen all of it though.
Thats a very pretty piccy of Ginji in the sig GetBackers is great. I have such a hard time choosing a favourite character though, they are all great. Som besides the obvious Ginji and Ban, I liked Kazuki too. Natsumi makes me laugh also
Fav character in Get Backers... Hmm...
Guess that would have to be either Ginji when he's the 'Lightning Emperor' or that Cruz-guy who controls light in the last episodes. Both of them are very cool. But as a character in whole, I guess I'd have to say Ginji, especially when him and Ban are in Chibi-form.
(SO CUTE! )
I loved that one guy, Dr. Jakal, I think. He had all those blades under his skin. Also that girl with the perfume, such an awsome wep.
you mean Himiko! :
the girl with the perfume n scents
nope, never heard of it
wats it about?
two guys that are always broke are the getbackers...they claim to get everything back to you (lost things etc etc ) and if i remember right ginji was a former gang leader and can control electricity and ban has an ability to create an illusion for 1 minute...you should give it a chance..it's really good ;]..and the manga is said to be even better
two guys who retrieve objects from people with a price
they have special powers (surprise)
Guess I'll make a little bigger explanation of the GetBackers anime than the others so far.
So. The anime is about Midou Ban and Amano Ginji, they call themselves the "GetBackers", and say that they can find anything, and bring it back for sure. Midou Ban has a special power called 'Evil Eye'. It basically makes a person see a dream where Ban can do whatever he pleases with the person seeing the dream. He also has another ability called 'Snake Bite', wich is in his left hand. His hand can squeese a mans skull (about 150-200kg's of pressure). Then we have Amano Ginji. Born and raised in the 'Infinite Castle'*. Also known as the 'Lightning Emperor', as he can control lightning, and he was the leader of the group 'VOLTS'* inside the Infinite Castle.
These two go on missions to get back stuff that people have lost. Can be anything from a teddy bear to un-valuable artworks.
It's a quite funny anime. Especially when Ban and Ginji are in chibi-form (they have very round and cute faces with big eyes).
It's worth watching so give it a try.
*Infinite Castle: A huge building in the middle of the city they live in. First it is the lower levels of the tower, where normal people can live. Then it's the middle level where quite strange people can live. Then it's the Babylon Tower level, where people with strange ability's (Ginji's ability to shoot lightning for example). Also, the people who are born inside the Infinite Tower cannot go out of it. They don't exist in the outside world. Ginji is an exception however.
*VOLTS: A group that consisted of four King's. One who controled beasts, 'Monkey Boy' -or Shido. Then there was Kazuki, who used bells and threads as weapons. MAKUBEX, yes, that is his name. The only one of the four kings to be born inside Infinite Castle. He can control anything that has to do with computers. Then the last one, can't remember his name but his last name was Cruz, he could control the light. And the boss over these four 'Kings' where Ginji, the 'Lightning Emperor'.
that's a looong ass description Mindless
Best character is Kazuki. <333
