Synopsis

The anime takes place in Osaka in "AD20XX," and revolves around the Hand Shakers—partners who can summon "Nimrodes," weapons born from their deep psyche by joining hands. In order to grant the pair's wish, the Hand Shakers compete with and fight other Hand Shaker pairs. The top pair will then meet and challenge "God."

"They, the receivers of the Revelation of Babel. They, the challengers to God.
They, who inevitably throw themselves into battle with their partners. What does God want from them?
And did they want powers exceeding that of Gods? The chosen ones, their souls linked,
join hand and hand for the Ziggurat where the fighting shall ensue."

Really funny anime - in the wrong way. I watched the first 30 seconds and already knew I would be watching it just for laughs.

Story 1/10

This was like an attempt at a combo of No Game no Life, K Project, and Mirai Nikki, of course, just horribly. Half of every episode was full of irrelevant things that had no importance whatsoever. All the useless things that pop up just make you wonder, "but why?" :-) The story mostly goes: "Wow, they're holding hands! They must be hand shakers! Let's fight! Now that we've fought, let's stay friends!". I love how the two main characters read more

Hand Shakers is the worst thing I´ve ever seen.

Now this show exceeded my expectations quite a lot. When I first saw it, I thought it was bad, but holy molly. This show is quite the good thing to dig into. I mean there is so much wrong with it, you could write for hours about what trash you can find in this. So, I decided, screw it. This is not some throw away material to put on my Tumblr blog at averageboris.tumblr.com, please follow me to get more dank reviews. This is the real jackpot. So, I decided to do something more in the style read more

"EP1:ultra setting on i3 thats how it felt like"
Keeping all those negative reviews aside.I decided to watch this one.And Surprisingly this was'nt as "BAD" as i expected it to be,and to those people who made it through the first episode without nauseating or trippin away,You da MAN.RESPECT BRO!

So lets get to the main stuff of HANDSHAKERS,right of the bat this gave me serious Guilty Crown Vibes,why!? cause like GC the MC Boy needs MC Girl to activate their true power.Big Ass Magic Sword,etc.

The plot revolves around Tazuna,a super curious geek highschooler who somehow can repair anything he comes across or he just "Mesh" it read more

I feel like this anime is getting far less than it actually deserves. Yes, it isn't a great anime, but that doesn't mean it's so horrible to get 1's and 2's so frequently. I guess it might be people's personal grading systems. In my own way of grading, this anime deserves far more than a 1.


The art is great (in my opinion), but they take it too far that it ruins the framerate. The camera is also being moved around too much. Even a life-action movie doesn't have a camera that spazzes out THIS much. The bad moments are watchable, and the good moments are read more
