While Get Backers and Gad Guard both go in completely different directions with their stories, they both have the same urban feel and similar character interactions. On top of that, they have similar upbeat music and intense action sequences. Get Backers contains a good bit more comedy than Gad Guard, but Gad Guard still has a fair dosage as well.

In conclusion, if you like the overall atmosphere of one of these series, you would probably find a sense of familiarity in the other and like it, at least to some degree.

.hack//SIGN

.hack//SIGN

In a massive online world, people act only as well as their conscience demands. When one player's punishment is to be trapped in this world, a disparate group of people seek the answers why. Their motives are varied; their methods even more so. What stands between when we tear down the walls of reality? Where does our soul end and we begin?

Get Backers and .hack//SIGN have a similarity with characters and an initial plot. MacubeX and Tsukasa are both questioning their existence. In Get Backers, however, MacubeX takes his depression to an extreme; while in Tsukasa's case you get a small picture of a bigger problem. Both anime are entertaining in their own right, though Get Backers, not centered around a depressed main character, is humorous; and .hack//SIGN, while centered around a lone speculative child, is more thought-provoking. If you enjoy one you will enjoy how the other looks at the possibility in a different light.

Hamatora

Hamatora

The detective duo of Nice and Murasaki, otherwise known as "Hamatora," wait again today for work with their friends at a table at Cafe Nowhere that they use as their agency.

Hamatora seems like an edgier, updated Get Backers to me, with them being virtually the same in many ways. For started they both feature a financially broke main protagonist who works for a private investigation company, the HQ for both groups is a bar, they each feature a cast that can wield a selection of superpowers and the jobs they take on tend to appear ordinary at first, before turning into something altogether more interesting.

Things change when Kenichi meets Furinji Miu, whose grandfather runs a dojo; and not knowing what he's getting himself into, he signs up to become a disciple. As Kenichi's life-threatening training continues and he becomes more and more powerful, he inadvertently becomes the target of the deadly gang called Ragnarok. With mental and physical challenges ahead, can Kenichi survive his encounters with Ragnarok, or will the masters of his dojo get to him first?

The obvious reason to liking both of these shows is that they're heavy on the really cool fight scenes. Of course, the recomendation goes beyond just that. Get Backers and Kenichi both have a deep seeded ideal of friendship and betrayal. In Kenichi, he's ultimately fighting against a friend whom he long since forgot and Ginji in Get Backers is fighting against all of his former friends from the Infinite Castle. Both Kenichi and Ginji are accompanied in their journies by an array of new friends who care deeply for the respective characters. I guarantee that you will like them both.

Although the two shows are based on very different stories, they both have the same fun filled mix of excitement,comedy and action.

There are a lot of similarities in the bishounen and bishoujou characters, enough to make any fan girl/boy's heart skip a beat. The characters are all lovable, and easy to relate to. The fight scenes are well drawn, and impressive in both shows. Neither Nabari, nor Get Backers feels the need to have super charged up attacks, or an overpowered boss of the week.

The story in both is engrossing and interesting, and I think if you enjoy one, the other is sure to follow.
