Has anyone else watched this anime? I really like this anime. It has all around good action, plot and characters. I absolutely love Kazuki of the Threads. His style is so cool and hes bells and hair ties are cool blink.gif I am only done the first season, but I am planning to finish the series soon ^^

See? Like hardly anyone has seen it...Just wait a few months and it will be like how Bleach is.


I would watch it if someone would switch to Netflix and let me rent it dry.gif

GB is one of my favorite anime series, especially art-wise. smile.gif i'm not particularly supportive of Ban/Ginji, an apparently canon pairing, but i do like Ban/Himiko, Ginji/Natsumi, Juubei/Kazuki, and Shido/Madoka. i love Tareginji, though...and i bought a really cute Ban pin at Fanimecon (Ban is my favorite out of the two dakkanya). Akabane's pretty cool too. and i wish Teshimine could have made a few more cameos in the series, since i think he's kind of hot cool. laugh.gif the ending was sucky, though.

@ celes: hmm...don't count on it. GB's not that recent of a series, and a lot of DLs for the series are dead, as well as some of my favorite GB sites. (i miss dakkanya.net, sigh.)

@ elderberry: yeah, Otoha is Mizuki Natsumi, and sings the first ED. i love the seiyuu in Getbackers, they're so talented and versatile. biggrin.gif

And live in an idiot's house
A harmless grinning idiot
With my lovely idiot spouse.

Because Slash will likely give us lots of shounen-aish pics, I will save whoever doesn't like that by giving a few random ones.

Oh and Slash's siggie.

It's hard not to find shounen-ai...

Nice Akabane pic, Celes. ^^ I think he is so cool, hence my siggie =D

@ninja-san: She is right ._. It isn't really new. I got into because Kihaku told me aboot it ^^ Though, I don't plan on watching PoT. Yes, it was pretty hard finding a bittorrent for it, though if anyone needs it, I might be able to find or send the torrent location <__<;;

You got into what because of me? Shonen-ai? *has high hopes* You're not planning on watching PoT? *weeps*

Anyway.. I haven't either watched much of this series.. but I'm currently watching it and reading the (TP) manga. I actually started watching it after borrowing the manga from a friend and wanted to see the anime verison too. I wasn't that into it at first (while reading the manga), but later the characters started to grow on me and I started getting into the plot (around the "Infinite castle arc").
My favourite character is Kazuki (yup, cool and sophisticated fighting style.. and I adore his character too wink.gif), but I also like Akabane a lot too.. and really many other characters.... smile.gif
My favourite pairing (yes, this has to mentioned) is JuubeixKazuki (that is so canon)... but I also support BanxGinji and ShidoxMadoka and like... various others. *whistles innocently*

@Kihaku: Well, I meant you had mentioned GetBackers to me before so I decided to watch it... and kind of shonen-ai biggrin.gif So I think you can celebrate a bit.

Yes, I like KazukixJuubei (you think Kazuki is uke? I think that is what it is called. I am not really good at deciding who is dominant, but I guess Kazuki is girlier biggrin.gif). Is anyone a fan of Makube/Sakura? I hope they elaborate on wether they really like each other in season two.

Yup, I'll celebrate! smile.gif And yes, although it's a shonen series, it's hinted enough (okay..a little more wouldn't hurt. tongue.gif)

Yay! You also like Juubei/Kazuki! biggrin.gif And yeah.. I definitely see Kazuki as the uke (even though I like my favourites to be seme) since well.. Juubei is the one who's been protecting Kazuki since they've known each other ( how sweet) and I see him more dominant in a relationship. And yes, Kazuki is girlier. tongue.gif
Oh... I forgot Makubex/Sakura! Yeah, I like them too! But I wonder if there will be any more about them...

XD OMG, I found this picture and I just had to post it.

Ban-chan looks pretty damn girly here... especially since his bustline is about as large as Himiko's. His hair looks kind of like the girl that works in the Cafe shop.
