Get Backers Episode 1

Get Backers

"The Initials are 'G' (Ginji) and 'B' (Ban)"

I didn't really know what to expect going in to Get Backers, and my expectations weren't high for it, so I was pleasantly surprised by what I got. That's not to say that it was merely "not bad", it was actually pretty entertaining.

Ginji and Ban are two guys who work together to retrieve things for people. Get things back, get it? They've obviously got a history with each other, as they play off each other's characters constantly through this first episode, from when they're battling to when they're both superdeformed and fighting over the last slice of pizza.

The animation was good, and I liked the opening and ending themes. It was pretty light, and the banter between the characters was definitely enough to keep things moving along.

I'll be interested to see where it's heading.

Get Backers is quite a good anime, and there seems to be a very interesting plot coming out at about episode 10. I hope it doesn't go down the drain towards the end like so many other animes!

Great anime, excelent animation, good fight scenes, good story/twists. There was enough variation to keep your attention, lots of comedy to keep you laughing. Have to say my favorite character was Kazuki of the strings, he's just cool. Ending was a bit disapointing, as it seemed rushed...
