  Kamishina Fuuto would like to think he's a normal boy, but he is the reincarnation of the High Priest of Darashaal, a tiny Asian country that has just celebrated the inauguration of...its new high priest.  Clearly, only one of them is the true priest, and unfortunately for Kamishina, it is he.  As the celestial guardians come to dispose of him, they discover that he is not, as their leader Naga says, a fake.  Kamishina just wants to be normal and live a normal life, but he is constantly drawn into trouble as he has an extremely keen spiritual sense and the ability to soothe ghosts.

Product Synopsis:
Ginji and Ban are back with another hilarious volume.  The GetBackers find themselves in more mischief than ever in this volume.  This time they face more than a card game.  Will they fall prey to someone else's deviant plot?  
Key Selling Points:  
  • A consistent bestseller, according to BookScan
    • Title has a successful anime series on DVD in the U.S.
      • Cowboy Bebop meets GTO
  • The nice and detailed art with clean, sharp inking and a dynamic layout is reminiscent of Tohru Fujisawa of GTO (no wonder:  Rando was Fujisawa's assistant). Humor and intrigue make this sophisticated fighting manga quite original.  It's a pleasure reading this funky duo's exploits that are different and more violent than their animated adaptation.  
    - Protoculture Addicts
    • "There's more than one way for manga fans to be shocked.  Perhaps they can be taken aback by some saucy language, or perhaps their bodies can be blown to smithereens by thousands of volts of electricity!  With GetBackers, it's your choice.  Writer Yuya Aoki and artist Rando Ayamine's Japanese manga and anime hit has been denied from American audiences for too long, and even though the 49-episode anime run isn't licensed, TOKYOPOP is bringing the manga tale of two broke yet super-powered kids to the U.S. beginning this February."
