Ban Midou and Ginji Amano are the Get Backers. With a 99 percent success rate in returning lost or stolen property to its original owners, they will do anything for the right price. Midou and Ginji often get hired for seemingly ordinary jobs that turn out to be more difficult than they appear; and whether it’s finding a doll for a girl, retrieving a stolen rare violin or getting mixed up with the mob, they have many adventures with plenty of petty squabbles along the way!
“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.
Both GetBackers and Trigun have interesting and unique stories, and while the two stories aren't similar to one another, they share a lot in terms of comedy. Vash fron Trigun and one of the main characters in GetBackers, Ginji are similar characters and both have deep pasts that are shown beautifully throughout their respective series.
If you liked the outlandish comedy alongside the good story and fight scenes in one of these series, you should find a sense of familiarity in the other.
Trigun and Get Backers are loads of fun, but have sad stories hiding in their respective backgrounds. The main characters both suffer from sad and terrible pasts but have embraced their new lives with joy and energy, never letting on about the pain they must feel. In each anime the main characters influence people along the way and work out their pasts.
I'd recommend watching both of these anime. If you liked one, you should like the other!
Okay i've seen that Trigun and Getbackers got something in common and its the past. Trigun and Getbackers got some mysterious and dark past and their past is still haunting forever. The story of those two anime is revolving around their past, everything that they do is related with their past.
Both of this series got comedy that i believe you will love it. LOL so much fun .. It's a must to watch both of it!!
An organization known to the dark side of the world as Chronos claims to desire world peace, employing the top thirteen assassins in the world known as 'Erasers.' They each have a weapon customized to fit their style, all made out of orichalcum ore, the strongest material available on Earth. Number 13, Train Heartnet (codenamed Black Cat) is the most famous and revered of the thirteen Chronos numbers, but in the light of a tragic event he has come to question his path in life. Together with Sven Vollfied, a struggling bounty hunter and a living weapon named Eve, Train takes up a job as a bounty hunter - all the while running from the other Erasers and Creed Diskenth, a crazed man whom wants him to join the Apostles of the Stars, a group made to destroy Chronos.
You will find a lot of similarities between the two series. They both feature two main protagonists who work as a team. Ginji (GB) and Train (BC) are easy-going, soft-hearted and seemingly gullible, to the exasperation of their partners, Ban and Sven, respectively. Their partners serve as their team's anchor and stabilizing point, usually masterminding their plans. All of them seem unassuming and are often underestimated, but they have mysterious and tragic pasts that give them their focus.
Both series have comedic, fluffy moments, and a lot of action. But for all their similarities, each has a merit of its own, not to mention sufficient differences in plot to keep you entertained.
Both are fun, light-hearted shounen anime; fighting with a touch of magic and comedy. The stories starts off as episodic missions, but develop into an actual storyline.
Both Black Cat and Get Backers are both shounen action animes built on two central characters that is funny but also serious at times. Both animes touch on the theme of purpose in life and strong friendship is developed among the characters. If you like action and comedy, these are for you!
While Ban and Ginji display a close yet distant relationship starting out, so does Sven and Train.
Ban and Ginji have two different personalities but are needed to make an equal team while Sven and Train are the same as well.
The setting seems similar for both anime since they both take on jobs with a similar theme.
They both display a great ammount of comedy, action, and they're both great and definetly worth watching!
In Gintoki's Japan, the arrival of the various space races known collectively as the Amanto ended the era of the samurai. The Amanto's highly advanced technology resulted in total conquest and a severe economic shift. Now, former samurai such as Gintoki scrape together whatever livelihood they can. Gintoki's profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he'll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his "work"! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!
Gintama and Get Backers both centralize on a very small group of people struggling to survive who have skills that aren't necessarily useful unless they are doing work (which they seldom find).They all have to take on odd jobs to pay the costs of living and manage to barely scrape by. Per usual in both, no job is simply straightforward and hilarious antics ensue.
Both series have both a comedy and more serious streak running through them. Many of the episodes have the laughs and a lot of "in" jokes - Gintama especially tailored to the otaku viewers.
The relationships between friends, and the strong bonds formed are probably the main theme in both of these series, as well as fighting as the underdog.
Both series are mostly lighthearted and full of high-energy action scenes, yet have moments of seriousness as well. They're also both full of bizarre and yet totally likable characters, as well as characters who alternate between being friend and foe. GetBackers is a bit darker but the underlying mood of the two shows is very similar.
Both have some sort of Yoruzuia(?). And both are pretty funny and they have a serious past. Get backers and Gintama both have a small aspect with the genre; Superpowers. Gintama, Gin is just strong with his sword even tough it's made out of wood. And with Get backers they have special eye power.
Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands. Gon Freecss is a naive-yet-determined young boy who aspires to join the ranks of these individuals, in order to find his missing father Ging - a master of the profession himself. To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?
While they initially seem quite different, Hunter x Hunter and GetBackers actually have quite a bit in common. For one thing, they both have large casts of main and supporting characters that come and go throughout the series. On top of that, many of the story arcs between the two seem to have the same atmosphere. They both combine comedy, action and suspense, and while they both can get serious, they also retain their lightheartedness for the most part.
If you like the sense of adventure or character development and interaction in one series, you would definitely be somewhat endeared to the other.
Watching Get Backers, the show just reminded me of Hunter x Hunter. I think most of this is because of the impressions the characters left me with. Each show features people who possess skills beyond what most people are capable of. The personalities of the main characters show some similarities with one being happy-go-lucky (Ginji/Gon) and the other being more down-to-earth and serious (Ban/Killua), and other counterparts in supporting characters can be found as well. While Get Backers tends to have shorter standalone adventures, some of their longer story arcs have the same feel as those in Hunter x Hunter.
Two best friends working together, extraordinary powers, comedy, and great story lines.
Ginji had a similar mentality to Gon as Ban has one with Killua.
Only difference is Get Backers are older and sometimes have adult things.
Secret agent for the British Libraries, Yomiko Readman, has an infatuation with books. When she purchases one of the books that contain the notes for a plan to purge the world of humanity, Yomiko (along with the help of Ms. Deep and Drake) uses her powers of paper manipulation to stop a group of resurrected men from fulfilling the plan.
Get Backers and Read or Die both are action packed campy series about people with unusual powers stopping the bad guys. Add in a soundtrack with style, and you have a fun show on your hands. I think if you like one, you'd appreciate the feel of the other.
Common people with unusual powers out of nowhere are on a mission to save the world and themselves! In the process, they beat stylish villains with unusual powers out of nowhere, participate in drama scenes, learn the true meaning of friendship and entertain you with good action scenes! Add good picture, stylish soundtrack and great character designs and you get two really good animes for OVA and long series lovers alike! Just don't think about where are their powers come from, okay?
Both casts of characters feature some of the most unique super powers around.
Not content with that they seam to be competing to find the most bizarre and interesting method of using them.
Though as is important the characters are as likable as you could want, so you'll actually care about the giant paper plane flying paper-master or the iron gripped illusionist.
