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."

One word: Amazing
Animation? Stunning.
Premise? Extremely original(not retarded), would've not thought about disabled middle schoolers battling to the death while holding hands, for a chance to speak to our true savior Allah.
The characters are really interesting! People saying they're boring and "make themselves go to sleep" have a bad opinion and should get educated..
Watched 20 seconds of it and knew this is the THE BEST ANIME of the year.

Lives up to K project's name, I'll be honest IT'S BETTER.

This is a true masterpiece.
Kimi no na wa? Fuck that gay shit

10/10 would fap again

Greatest. Anime. Of. All. Time.

This work was produced by GoHands, which is one of the best studios in terms of animation style in my opinion. I was expecting that this work would be well done, but after watching half of the first episode, I dropped this Anime, it was an utter piece of trash.
I cannot judge about the storyline but all I see is a pathetic main character, which wasn't a good start, but I think the major issue in this Anime was not the character, but it was, surprisingly, the animation and art style.
Let us talk about the animation first. I've never seen an Anime that will my read more

"Hand Shakers" is an anime that took me by surprise. I read the reviews, the synopsis and got excited. I'm in the middle of eating a sundae and I just feel the urge to watch a terrible anime.

I was shocked to learn how amazing the anime actually is. Filled with cliches and nothing unexpected, it was still a beautiful anime to look at and a pleasant experience overall. I would best compare it to a shallow man's dream girl. Stunning and beautiful looking, with little to offer in depth.

Okay, now let me answer the question you're irritated that I'm taking so long to answer. read more

Hand shakers.An anime by a young anime studio known as Gohands.I have been waiting for about 4 or 5 months since the pv fr it was first realeased.But I watched it with nothing but disappointment.The animation in the first episode was all over the place honestly.Though in episodes 2 and 3 out so far its not as bad.Though the overall enjoyment of this anime was pretty low.The characters are pretty bland so far.The story doesn't make any sense and I was just super disappointed.If I was still 13 right now I would love this but now I'm 16 and I've seen all the anime I read more
