... by TokyPop. Good thing? Bad thing? Does it make you want to dance for joy or hide under the sofa? ^_^;

The projected street date is February 10, 2004. WAY FAR OFF, but still. I'm looking forward to it. Obviously. e.e *l*

Well, I really didnt care much about the manga cause my Japanese wasnt that good at the time. So, i just watched the anime fanbsubs. i think the manga being licensed is a great thing, as long as they don't license the anime. >.>

YAYYYYYYY!! :D haha i read a few installations of it in a chinese magazine, and though i REALLY like it so far, i can't tell you much about it ::sorry!:: but yeah! SCORE! on that one ongoing poll they have on the site about "what should we license next" i asked for the Get Backers (yes, my chinese sucks). this seems like a big SCORE! for me. xD

Ah, jfc, to sum it up, it's about these two guys who run a retrieval service/dakkanya called GetBackers... they boast a 100% return rate on stolen items/persons. ^_^ But they usually have to do quite a bit of hoop-jumping to get stuff back.

Oh, and they're almost always broke. XD From what I've gathered, that's usually due to the.. er... eclectic?.. cases they take on. o.o I don't know much past the very beginning, so I'm not the best source for summation, either. ^^;
