CR will be streaming this like around...10:00 am today.

Not going to lie though, the visual craft of the show reminds me of K, a lot.

Not surprising since the animation is done by GoHands, which also did K

First episode is now handed off to Crunchyroll.

Episode 1

It feels just like K as GoHands is letting everybody know about it. Anyway, a lot of stuff and action here and not much in the way of a story going on. I would like to believe that this is just the first episode jitters, but only time will tell if that's truly the case or not. Anyway it could be interesting, but for now I'll wait until the next episode before making that judgment.

I take back what I said. The choreography (besides the action) looks like a shittier version of K.

Other than that, I think the show has potential? Too early to tell for now. Decent soundtrack though.

Edit: pretty sure that black haired girl (Bind) spend at least a minute moaning.

Correction: It feels like some of the really bad art from Return of Kings. Color filters everywhere, they forgot what faces look like half the time, and boobs. And more boobs. And clothing that's all folds and details and sort of doesn't look connected to anything.... but it all still moves well.

. . . . . . the episode of RoK with the elevator fight is guilty of all of that, but I still love it, though, so... let's check out Hand Shakers.

Episode 1

Well the first episode was something. The action was alright but the story is where it might suffer and did they really have to have the jiggle physics like that. Well lets see how this turns out.

This anime, though....

It feels like a shitty VN or game adaptation, except it's not. There are some interesting artistic merits, but most of it feels awkward. The music is probably the only thing that attracted me to stay.

I want to give it another episode, but I really don't expect much. Yeah

What even is this show?

This art style is like... it's like someone pointed out all of the things they did wrong in RoK and they were like, "Well, we'll just make our own show and do all those things and show you how they're actually really great and we're geniuses!"
Except.... no.

Wow, I hope Seven Stories looks better than this.

Everything looks flat and like... barely glued together? It's weird. The movements don't seem natural. Things like that.

Ohhhh in media res action opening, then cut to school scene, where have I seen that before? ... J...? no, maybe it was L....

Break is like... Misaki possessed by Niki. And it's making me so uncomfortable. (Niki is Saruhiko's abusive father from the prequel novels (which are amazing and you should read them), and Misaki and Saruhiko are the main ship pretty much, and... Saruhiko would be so uncomfortable watching this and I just feel bad for him).

Also, Bind - well, besides everything else wrong with that whole setup - she looks like Lelouch's mother in Code Geass. And Break, Misaki, and Lulu are all played by the same voice actor, so... that's uncomfortable.

Speaking of Code Geass, this show is pretty much exactly what I thought it was. Code Geass -> Guilty Crown, K -> Hand Shakers. The plot is really similar to Guilty Crown, too.

I hope this thing doesn't get popular, though. I hope this dead-little-sister girl doesn't get ubiquitous like Inori still is.

..... Makihara, though <3. All two seconds of him, but still. He reminded me of Lloyd. I actually liked the show when he was there, especially when he trips and falls. That was cute. It's like they managed to find a drop of personality left over from K. Still not enough to make me continue it but...
