One of the four leaders of Ura Shinjuku. Respects Ginji, in his own way though. Ban's arch rival, emm... not really (If you know Yuu Yuu Hakusho, think Hiei and Kuwabara). They both hate and irritates each other). 

Calls Ban by his full-name, Midou Ban and makes Ban angry with it. He insist on killing Ban one way or another. But it's all in the mouth. He never succeeded. He is the cause of Ban's misunderstanding with Ginji in vol 4. Good thing Ban always has a softer side for Ginji and forgave him.

One of the few Mariudo people left. He fights with the power of animals and also by trancing aniimal sprit into himself. He's the ONLY person in here with a girlfriend, Madoka-chan ^_^ He's very responsible and dependable, eventhough he looks like some teenage ganster with a social problem.

One of Ginji's loyal followers. Was so happy to see Ginji, Shido and Kazuki because he thought that Ginji had came back to the "Ura Shinjuku". He lasted for 13 pages after the "Manji" brother's killed him and enraged Ginji.

Ban was... annoyed? *shrugs* when Ginji introduced Shuu to him. Why? Ginji was hugging the boy for old time's sake and Ban hit him. *jealous maybe*

The bodyguard that seems to appear everytime to attack Ginji. Was finally killed by Ginji's Thunder Attack (which nearly drain his life as well) in vol. four.

He's the one of the Leader of Volts. yes, this small kawaii-ko. But his computing skills worth three hundred of you... (hey he even sleeps on a mountain of computers... Literally a genius, but his feelings are unstable.

Weapon : "Flying Needles"

One of Makubex's ELITE forces. It seems that Kazuki used to be his 'best friend' and he felt betrayed that Kazuki left. So he joined Makubex and tries to fight and kill Kazuki but was defeated. 

Kazuki didn't like the idea of killing his best friend but couldn't help but saving his own life. His own flying needles injured Kakei to the extend of falling limp on the ground. Kazuki thought he was dead so he went up to him and hugged him crying his name out loud, finding out later that he was just unconscious.

Synopsis of Manga :-

This manga is about 2 boys with special powers and they use it to open a shop called 'Datsukanya' [Get Backers].

Midou Ban is the one with Spiky hair, ridiculous round sunglasses, Marlboro cigarettes, blue eyes, baggy white button down shirt, baggy black pants, leather shoes and a 'Jagan'.

Amano Ginji is the one with sunshine blonde hair, warm brown eyes, thinks about food even in his sleep, green jacket, white t-shirt, brown bermudas, sport shoes and is a 'Denki Unagi' [Electric Eel].

Because of their special powers, they're able to hypnotise people and electrocute their way through dangerous jobs.

Both are currently bunking in their little gray car. They were kicked out of their last house because the money to pay up rent was used up to pay for the car's compound fine.

They started off with a desperation for 10 yen that they had to take the job of getting back a Final Fantasy game catridge for a boy for the pay of 10 yen and get bashed up in the process. After they were nearly starved to death, an old man came to the rescue for he gave the duo some rice. Out of repaying the kind old man, both went to get back the old man's daughter who was kept in a mafia group's mansion after hearing the old man's sad story. But thing turned bad and they were nearly killed. Good thing Ban used his Jagan to hypnotise and beat the whole ganster group and ran away. Once they got back to the old man to tell him about his daughter, they found him nearly dead because he was attacked by a street hogger. Again, Ban used his Jagan towards the old man to hypnotise him and give him a dream that the old man saw his daughter before he died. That's when the 'Datsukanya' opened officially.

    Their adventures continue as Ban and Ginji met Ban's old acquaintace, get the chance to actually see Ban play the violin, Ginji finishing off Hishiki with his electric wave and the hidden secrets between the two of them.

Ban : I heard Ginji.... something must be wrong...!
Bulma : Cheh... you can hear Ginji's voice even if he's not here.... have something happening between you two ah?
Ban : Busybody....
Bulma : But Ban-chan, the expression on your face was priceless just now!!
Ban : ... I have no time to argue with you, I need to save Ginji!
Bulma : For all you know he's just hungry and saw a sushi shop... --.--;

Seems like Ban's anxious... ^__^ Did you see him go out just now? He almost treated you like air and ran through you. Did you enjoy your stay? Tell them!
