Get Backers is primarily the story of Ginji Amano and Ban Midou, two chronically broke but supernaturally empowered youths who run a "recovery service" (recovering lost or stolen things for a price). The principle behind their jobs and behind most of the series is "If it was taken, get it back." In other words, Get Backers is a series about reconciling past and future. Particularly in the first season the tone is often light and fun, but the second season is a long arc in which we begin to see snatches of the secret of the Limitless Fortress--the central mystery of the Get Backers world. After this arc, in which Get Backers and company save Shinjuku from being destroyed by Ginji's old friend Makubex, a series of one-shot character development episodes leads into the climax of the series, where Ban and Ginji find themselves headed back into the Limitless Fortress. This time, though, instead of saving the Limitless Fortress from Makubex, it's the other way around.
Mido Ban and Amano Ginji are known as the Get Backers, retrievers with a success rate of 100%. Whatever is lost or stolen, they can definitely get it back. Despite their powerful abilities and enthusiastic behavior, Ban and Ginji are terminally broke no matter what they do simply because few people would actually desire to hire them. As a result, the pair of them tend to do dangerous jobs, often leading to unwanted re-encounters with their old (and dangerous) friends.
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!
