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. ^^;
Cats offer the same emotional rewards as adopting a toaster, except toasters occasionally do what you ask them to do.
