I've only watched the first few episodes so far, but I like it. Basically these 2 guys have a huge bar tab that they are working off by contracting themselves to recover things that have been stolen.

It was like that at first, pretty simple setting blended with some funny stuff.
But let me tell ya it'll get pretty serious and complicated real soon with the appearance of new characters and missions.

Get Backers gives me a feeling of HunterXHunter, everything was very simple and seems worth a look till the new characters reveals new plots and craps...

At any rate, enjoy!

the original was a half season TV series, with a relatively small budget. the Ultimate series is direct to DVD OVA, which allows for a better budget and longer production time. It's a completely reanimated version of the same Manga. The pacing is actually closer to the manga, and the violence is turned up a notch. There are currently 3 volumes of the Ultimate realease in Japan, each is about 45 minutes. It's the same story, a bit more condensed, but there are a lot of elements i felt were missing from the original TV series, especially Sera Victoria's inner battles and relationship with Alucard.

worth a look.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

I just finished the fourth disc of Get Backers last night. The first 2 discs seem to be intended to establish their world and introduce the characters. At the start of the third disc, most of the major characters have to team up for a job and go into the Limitless Fortress. All of discs three and four are part of the same story arc, and it's continuing onto disc 5. That's 10+ episodes so far.
