Synopsis

Yukiya, who is "probably" 14 years old, spends his time DJ-ing alone. Due to his father's influence, he's listened to house music since he was young, and he uploads videos online. He wants to convey something to someone. He wants to be recognized, and become important. But getting hurt is scary. One day, while trying to get more views, he does something that can't be undone. And he sees a live broadcast from "that world." Yukiya believes he can't do anything alone, but that he could accomplish something if he were doing it together with someone else.

“It at once is the antithesis of creativity and a testament to everything that can go wrong with ambition in art; it is the enemy of creativity itself! Let’s give one final farewell to Hand Shakers, the show that broke my spirit 10 times over; see you in hell!” -An idiot who thought this shit would end.

In an ideal world, something as broken Hand Shakers would have never been made. Unfortunately, we live in a society, where something like this can get popular as a punching bag, garner a prequel OVA, a sequel series, and several stage plays despite flopping both critically and commercially. Understandably, read more

Don’t you just hate when you read the synopsis for an anime and you think to yourself “wow this actually sounds interesting and unique”. You’re kind of excited to watch it because it presents a concept you feel has not been done before, and then it turns out you have seen it before and you realize you’ve been catfished. That’s how I felt 2 minutes into the first episode of W’z when I found out I was watching a Handshakers sequel.

So the story for Handshakers season 2, I mean W’z (pronounced Wise not Wiz, yeah I know it’s weird) starts off with our main character read more

On one hand, I'm annoyed that GoHands decided that a 'Hand Shakers' sequel was the natural progression of things their company should go for despite just how poor that show was.  But on the other hand, their OST is still fire, so I somehow still can't be mad.

Story:

When two people have a fervent wish, they become 'Hand Shakers', battlers who wield weapons call Nimrods (god I wish i was kidding) and fight other Hand Shakers in the world known as the 'Ziggurat' in an attempt to get their wish granted by God.  Set roughly 14 or so years after the original Hand Shakers, our story read more

"You thought you'd see a new IP from Production GoHands, but no it was me HAND SHAKERS THIS ENTIRE TIME!"

No seriously this is a SEQUEL to Hand Shakers and LA was a baffled and as anxious when LA came to realization about W'z.

Ok but LA will have to get some things out of the way first.

W'z has a new set of characters but the returning cast also gets some limelight as GoHands tries to ACTUALLY develop the anime as it was suppose to in Hand Shakers and to a decent degree in this regard. GoHands seems to try and right their wrongs from Hand Shakers read more
