Read GetBackers, Volume 1 by Yuya Aoki Rando Ayamine Online


The job of a retriever is not a very lucrative one, at least not for Ginji Amano and Ban Mido. So dire are their circumstances that death by starvation seems imminent until a homeless man takes pity on them and shares some of the food he's been able to scrounge. Upon learning that they are the GetBackers, he offers them all he has to get his daughter back from the Yakuza....

GetBackers, Volume 1 Reviews

    --- Get Backers 1-39 ---Plot: OkGambar: SUPERB!Penokohan: Sifat-sifat karakternya menarik.For the love of-- BAAANN!!♡*Uhuk! Maaf, lupakan saja yang tadi. Sebenarnya saya masih ragu menuliskan review jika bukunya tidak kubaca ulang. Tapi baiklah. Berdasarkan ingatan, saya suka komik ini. Saya menikmati betapa shonen-klasik plot yang disajikan dan betapa cantik gambarnya untuk ukuran komik cowok (yang entah kenapa saya selalu berpikir komik shonen selalu sebelas dua belas dengan arsiran kuat bertenaga). Gambarnya menawan, sexy dan rapih. Sebelas dua belas dengan gambar Samurai Deeper Kyo dalam satu dua artian sempit (haha).Plotnya juga lumayan. Meski kadang ada beberapa arc yang saya rasa agak... mengesalkan karena panjang dan saat itu saya benar-benar mau kalau komik ini tamat cepat-cepat^^. Kesampingkan hal itu, ada beberapa arc favorit. Saya juga sangat menikmati roman subplot dari pria dengan kemampuan hewan itu dan gadis buta itu. Belum lagi antara protagonis utama dengan "adik" kawannya yang bikin saya senang dengan hubungan yang terasa-- sangat bisa masuk kategori romantis, tetapi juga terpisahkan sebuah tembok besar bernama "alasan". Sialnya, mangaka-dan-author-san sepertinya tidak menyetujui kapal saya ini (sial ^ m ^ '). Oh-- tidak untuk dilupakan, hubungan dua tokoh utama ini juga bikin greget. Mereka sangat dekat, begitu dekat sampai bisa masuk kategori sahabat sehati nyaris sejiwa, yang membuat saya takut dengan hubungan mereka juga (saking dekatnya).Menuliskan review ini membuatku ingat dengan Get Backers dan betapa saya menikmatinya. Jika tidak keberatan dengan plot yang sangat komik-kecowokan, sedikit perasaan repetitif, karakter yang cantik-cantik, dan servis kipas angin (sama seperti Kyo, saya berharap sebenarnya tidak ada servis ini. Tapi ya sudahlah, anggap bumbu tambahan), komik ini bisa dijadikan pilihan.[9/10]

    I enjoyed GetBackers! I really did. I even tracked down the anime episodes, but I was only ever to get 4 chapters of this series and thus the interest did slide eventually. But for a time, it was good. However, today it shall be part of the Culling.

    I love it. If you don't know the story this is about Gingji and Ban who are a team of guys who get back things that are lost and stolen. They both have special powers. Ginji has electric waves going through him so he can shock you if he wants and shorts out things. Ban has some of power that if he looks you in the eye he can make you see things happen like in a dream that really don't happen. One of his lines after is Did you have a bad dream. With that cocky smile :)

    Dumb and crude. Stupidity underlined by gratuitous panty shots and boob squeezing. I love the anime but I'll pass on the manga. A very unappealing experience that I don't plan to repeat any time soon.

    Sure it's juvenile and violent but it's the GOOD kind of violent immaturity.

    One volume was enough to impress me with its misogyny.

    This is my first read of a Japanese graphic novel, or manga and it was too be honest pretty average. That is not too say that all of them will be average, but this seemed to have a singular approach to appeal to a teenage male of about fifteen, and the premise while it held some interest not explored very well.It was clear that there were some 'comedic' elements to the story, and it did not take itself too seriously, but the comedy was pretty hit and miss, and you were hoping that they would take the story a little bit more seriously.

    Bromance to the max! I love these character and their story is really fun with some nicely space serious parts to keep things interesting.

    GetBackers is a fun manga, but, in my opinion, is actually more accessible in anime form. The manga art is unusually hard to follow - particularly in fight scenes, and especially in the first five volumes or so, I would have had a hard time figuring out what was going on if I hadn't already seen the anime. And the plot and content of the anime follows the manga relatively closely; you aren't missing a lot by restricting yourself just to the anime series, if you choose. And, actually, this is not a series I'd recommend to people who don't read manga regularly. It has a lot of the manga conventions - the video-game style fight scenes and moves, chibis, etc. - that tend to turn people new to the genre off of manga. But I enjoy the series a lot. Ban and Ginji are incredibly adorable and so very obviously doing it that even some of the official art has them in, like, wedding garb. (And we won't even talk about the slashiness of the secondary characters; Kazuki and Juubei are, as far as I can tell, canonically a couple.) The world is interesting, the characterizations are fun - basically, this series is reading candy for the manga inclined.

    Ahh, Getbackers. The love that will never die.This wasn't the first manga that I read. I've read many, many others but discoverd the trailer for Getbackers on a anime DVD. At first I thought, "Hmm, I'm not sure," but showed the trailer to a friend and she said, "Oh, that looks cool!" Eventually I purchased it (still in slight doubt as anime DVD are quite expensive here) and now own the entire series of manga and anime. I'm sure I'm not the only one though.Anyway ... the art in the manga is considerably different, but as I watched the anime first it wasn't hard to grasp what was going on. I'd recommend this manga to anyone as it's full of fun characters, a great story line and isn't short of ideas when it comes to 'recovery missions' (you'll see).

    GetBackers is a very flawed series. The plots can be convoluted, the art is hit-and-miss (very often “miss”), and the fanservice is ridiculous. I adore GetBackers despite all of it’s failings. I love stories about strong bonds of friendship, and GetBackers is all about friendship. Ban and Ginji are dorky, and damaged, and I am always made ridiculously happy by how deeply they care for one another.Volume one isn’t a very good representation of the series, as most future volumes are taken up with the aforementioned convoluted plots occurring in and around the Infinite Fortress, and have little to nothing to do with Ban and Ginji’s job as retrievers. If the manga’s flaws are too much to overcome, the anime is much easier to deal with (and prettier!)

    Okay I'm a huge manga/anime fan! I've a whole collection of different manga/anime series such as Inuyasha, Fruits Basket, Bleach, DNAngel, Kingdom Hearts (a video game I have a total obsesion with) and now Getbackers. I first found out about Getbackers through DNAngel. I was watching the extra features on one of the DVD's and Getbackers was one of them. I've already bought the first three volumes but I can't find the fourth. Ginji and Ban are the greatest. Ginji's fun-loving and silly attitude reminds me of my best friend. In a way she and I are a lot like Ginji and Ban minus the cool powers. I think it would be awesome if I had Ban's Evil Eye and the power in his fist.

    It start out kinda slow and a little confusing (at least for me), but it will soon kick in and make more sense as I continue on with the series. Soon, it is quite hard for me to stop watching it since I alway wondering what gonna happend next, and as the result, I finished it after two days ^.^. Ginji is my favorite character in this series, even though he have a dark past, he alway manage to keep on a cheerful reaction most of the time.This anime also have a wonderful collection of Openings and Endings as well, I would highly recommend liscend to some of the songs if any of you guys interested

    The Get Backers are the duo Ginji Amano and Ban Miso, poor, and with a almost 100% success rate - what could go wrong? Quite a lot, actually, from the Yakuza to Hevn's strange jobs and mysterious clients, it's a very good thing the Get Backers are anything but normal, in fact they are quite paranormal. Ban has his 'Evil Eye' and Ginji a electrical abilities like those of a electric eel, powers which could mean success or failure, life or death.I quite liked the "streetwise" pair, and that they try to be heroes in a business of getting back what shouldn't have beet taken.

    The art is a big problem for me. It's very busy and cluttered, where I prefer cleaner, sparer compositions. Ginji looks like a butch girl. Hevn's breasts are even bigger here than they are in the anime and they practically have their own subplots. Which leads to the next problem. Her huge breasts are constantly being heaved into the readers' faces and everybody plays with them. I'm not fond of the gratuitous female near-nudity and panty shots. I know that this is a convention in much manga, but I really don't like it.

    Al fin me pongo las pilas y me leo por lo menos el primer tomo del manga que originó uno de mis animés favoritos entre los que pasaba Animax cuando prometía ser un canal de puta madre.Por ahora me encontré más o menos con lo que pensaba: un estilo de dibujo que me gustó menos que en la animación, quizás porque en esta etapa el trazo todavía es medio rústico; y un guion más entretenido que el de la serie, con chistes de culos y tetas y todo.Lástima que el segundo caso queda inconcluso, pero espero no ser taaaan idiota de dejar oooootra vez una serie colgada por idioooota.

    3.6-ish. Plot was a little hard to follow later on in the story (maybe it was always hard to follow, I just went by the anime before I read the manga), and the art was of no help, but I liked Ban, despite how much of a bastard he was. My love of Gin x Ban was what pretty much kept me going... (also liked AkaBan, but fanwork of those are even rarer. Le sigh).

    I find that this series has the ability to make me laugh in ways like no other. Despite its intervals of annoying, semi-explicit fanservice I can't seem to get enough of the art, the story and these two cuddly dumbasses. (:

    This manga reminds me of GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka, Vol. 1 so much. Read it if you're a fan.

    awalnya nggak sekonyol komik lain. evil eye-nya si ban ternyata bisa buat kebaikan juga.

    The manga is much more violent and full of fan service than the anime, but the humor and characters are nearly the same.

    Not bad, but a little too heavy on the fan service. Characters are entertaining but implausible. Art's not bad. Generally fun, but probably not worth paying full price for.
