Your show is named Hand Shakers and the animation team behind this is GoHands…the team that brought you K and anything that has the same animation style as that show.

Seriously, most of GoHands shows always look like this.

This is Hand Shakers.

Plot Summary: In Osaka in the year “AD20XX,” Hand Shakers are 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.”

First Thoughts: …….


From this one guy stomping on his partner and she sounds like she getting off that shit!! Or the fact the animation looks so damn terrible and usually the CG on any GoHands project is fine but this shit…..Nah. This looks like some old Playstation/Sega Saturn effects. Who in the hell is in charge of the this? Don’t GoHands got more people working than…..Shingo Suzuki, who did work on and Coppelion? So, basically, the plot is this kid named Tazuna who meets this loli girl named Koyori and they get into some shit and the concept of Hand Shakers are two people who touch hands and form a weapon called the Nimrod.



The name of a weapon is called NIMROD!! And also they need to win to talk to God or something. Oh…….OK…….Wow, and I thought Masamune-kun was bad in the first episode but this……it’s going to be a Worst of contender for 2017.

This just sounds so damn stupid. So bad plot, nothing characters with dumb reasons and horrible recycled animation and effects that look so dated, I thought I was 10 again for a minute.

And yet, I want to see how bad this shit will be. No way in hell I’m saying you should continue with this. In fact, SKIP THIS SHIT COMPLETELY. There’s nothing to keep you glued in and of course, shit animation. Worse than Berserk 2016. Worse than Ajin.


I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid…..and I’m letting the visuals or tweets from ANN Editor/Reviewer Jacob Chapman tell all.

    1. Yeah,this show did not make a first good impression and what’s worse about that is it was DOA (Dead on Arrival) when I played it and yeah, very slim pickings on what’s good this season.

      At least for me, I got ACCA 13 and Blue Exorcist Kyoto Saga for stuff I’m actually looking forward to watching.
