There is hardly anything that can go well in this post-apocalyptic atmosphere and the boys know it, taking in on various and demanding tasks. Past, current and future engulf the two as they fight with not only the enemies of the ones who have hired them, but also their own ones.

The anime has 49 episodes that aired from October 5, 2002 to September 20, 2003. The original story comes from the GetBackers manga by the mangaka team Shin Kibayashi and Rando Ayamine.The manga is finished and you can get the entire story in just 344 chapters of action and superhuman abilities.
