Get Backers  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Blond, hip, pragmatic, and cool, Ginji Amano has the power to generate currents with his body like an electric eel. Brunette, equally hip, bespectacled, and rambunctious, Ban Mido has the mystically mysterious "Evil Eye," the power to create illusions in the minds of his foes.

Together, they are the GetBackers, the best retrieval team in the world! They can get back anything taken from clients, and their success rate is (almost) 100%.

But first they have to get some clients—and soon—or this energetic detective duo will starve on the streets!

As mentioned in previous comments, this series is in a different league compared to all the other action + comedy + ecchi manga out there. There's an intricate plot behind the entire story, and while there're plenty of brainless fights, some of the battles actually do rely more on strategy than on brawn.

Some of the issues they discuss (politics, morality and the environment, to name but a few) are surprisingly deep and intellectual -- it's obvious that the author gave quite a bit of thought to the construction of the dialogues. Even a slightly experienced manga reader should know that this is not a strong point of most shounen.

Another plus is that amidst all the shouts of "I'll kill you!" and "I will become the strongest!!!" there's plenty of character development, and the relationships between the protagonists and their supporting characters are very sincere and endearing.

The character art is so-so, but the background art is amazingly detailed, and it's obvious that Rando Ayamine put a lot of effort into his work. His technique evolves continuously, showing noticeable improvement towards the latter half of the series.

Get Backers is an awesome series. Too bad the anime stopped at 49 episodes.
Luckily there are people willing to put the manga online.

Some of the things they talk about are amazingly intellectual, from the structures of nuclear weapons to the arts to philosophy, while all the while managing to have no brain fighting seuqences all along the way. Simply amazing

This is a great manga that's a lot more ecchi than it's anime counterpart. The artwork changes, and to my opinion, improves later as the chapters are released.

I hate/love this manga. The art is good, characters are interesting even though they lack depth (this is a shounen after all) .They keep building it bigger and bigger and yet why do I want the damn thing to just endconfused?? Its too damn long- cut out half the side characters, cut down the useless enemy becomes friend crap and get onto the finale. I am tempted to not read to the end because I have become bored with the all the useless repetition.
