The manga tells the story of a pair known as the GetBackers, consisting of Ban Mido and Ginji Amano. The duo reside in one of the seedier areas of Shinjuku in Tokyo, and are often brokeand resort to sleeping in their car. Ban and Ginji operate a freelance repossession service. For a fee, they will recover anylost or stolen item for a client. The two boast an "almost 100% success rate" (100% in the anime). Their motto is: "We get back what shouldn't be gone". However, Ban and Ginji are not ordinary human beings. They each possess mysterious abilities which they use to carry out their many recovery missions. Ban's powers include the "Snakebite", a skill which gives his hands a grip of 200 kilograms-force, and the "Evil Eye", an ability to induce minute-long hallucinations of Ban's choosing in whomever he makes direct eye contact with. However,this ability cannot be used on the same person twice in a 24-hour period, and he has to rest between uses. The Evil Eye can also only be used three times in one day.Ginji, on the other hand, can generate enormous amounts of electric energy in his body for tasks such as attacking opponents,or overloading electronic systems; this has earned him the moniker of "Thunder Emperor" Despite the simplicity of their job's description, Ban and Ginji's profession often places them into bizarre and dangerous situationsin order to obtain the objects they must find. Their targets range from everyday objects such as a video game a school kid has lost to an even much more dangerous object which might just affect thesafety of the nation (such as a vital part of an atomic bomb). As such, the plot mostly revolves around the dangerous adventures they both go through, which is often complicated by connections tothe pair's dark and twisted pasts, and a mysterious place called Infinity Fortress!! well...thats the best sypnosis i can pull out...plz do post yer comments guys... cuz i am plannin to post many many more of these soon, so your comments will be useful in correction for the other animes..also tell me which anime u want to be posted.. plz do reply... ciao!
