About Get Backers Complete Collection DVD
Get Backers Complete Collection contains episodes 1-49.
Whether it's a favorite stuffed animal, a priceless painting, or even your last shred of hope, if someone's taken it from you, Ban and Ginji will get it back. They're the Get Backers, an expert "recovery" service. They'll retrieve what's been stolen, no matter what it is or who took it. Of course, with Ban's special "Evil Eye" and Ginji's lightning strike capability, they've got a head start on the crooks. No job is too big, no job is too small - at least not until they pay off their tab at the local coffee shop.

Ratings & Reviews
Funny but could have been better
by RACHEL -
The anime falls short. With interesting characters but unreasonable censorship, destruction of the true relationship between Ban and Ginji, and poor music, it's reasonable to say that the anime, though not terrible, isn't good, either.
The manga, however, is far more entertaining and introduces genuinely interesting story arcs, much bloodier (and more realistic) battles, much more intimidating dream sequences via the Evil Eye, generous portions of boobage, and an overall better delivery.
You should watch if you like super power battles
by Jose -
This story had some great story arcs and characters. Also the fight animation was pretty well done as well. If you are a fan of superhero fights then this is a show you should watch.
Also you should try to find and read the manga version which is even better than this. The reasons are listed in RACHEL's review. I just love Ayamine Rando art throughout this and his other series.
