One of the best action series

GetBackers gives us a great story of two best friends who have a modern day Robin Hood approach to their business. The art is some of the best in the action genre, the characters are all very fleshed out and lovable, and the adventures they go on are diverse and interesting, but never lose their original focus. Anyone who loves battle manga should give this one a shot, it's one of the most unique takes on the style I have encountered.

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.

Awesome manga with fighting and comedy. Ginji is one of my favorite character and I just don't like Ban even though he may be funny sometimes. Got my reason but lazy to type it down. I'm done reading the latest translation on mangafox.com. I Hope the translations scanlate release soon so i can continue reading. What i afraid the most is that it will take long for it and when it out i might forgot going on which always happen to me.

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.

This one definitely deserves a 10 ^^
The art gets better and better, the author definitely did lots of research for each story, great sense of humor as well. Oh yes, how can I forget to mention lots of hot guys ^^.

Clean art, unique storyline, loveable characters, good humors, overall a very good manga.
The only thing this manga lacks is more release sad

I couldn't agree more with one of the previous comments here. Aside from the author having done his research before writing the story, everything is nicely thought through (which really is quite unusual for this type of manga where the authors usually just go with the flow to create twists and turns and what not) and there's usually some "secret" or some "catch" to the job they've received that you can usually figure out yourself (sometimes it's even pretty damn hard). As if that wasn't enough, it's quite humorous, has really nice lookin' art (which gets notably better each volume) and some decent fights. It's really quite excellent for a shounen.
