K is good and sweet and it makes sense and it's not stupid like this. Please watch K. <3


Not to mention, K got two seasons and a movie (and you need to watch the movie before getting to the second season as a super-important event happens). Anyway, instead of shaking hands, I'm shaking my head, so I think Head Shakers is a more accurate name for this show. Bouncing boobs and prolonged chain rape are definitely things that were uncalled for. I'm hoping that it was just a way to grab my attention, but it totally failed in a big way.

That was actually almost impressively bad.

That director should never work again, with all those lens effects he dumped into a 20 minute show... it literally made me feel sick just watching it

That was some very nauseating camera work.

Terrible CG as well.

Yeesss this~

Just... everyone, go watch K. Just watch the first two episodes and compare them to this. K is beautiful and perfect.

Just.... the fact that this MC actually has a dead little sister.

It's like they looked at the great wonderful amazing story GoRA gave them and went, "Hmmm, this would be better if we took out everything good in it, and made it actually really bad."

Please just watch K... I hope people don't judge K based on this, because K already like... gets some bad attention. But K is so much better than this.

Just let the fluffy penguins wash that out of your mind.

I just hope this doesn't get popular, and I hope people don't judge K based on this, because K is actually really good.

I'm like... really worried that this is going to reflect badly on K and that people are going to hate K over this.

Or worse... if this gets popular and they take K in this direction.


edit:
Also worth noting: no writing credit. Series composition is credited to Hiromitsu Kanazawa, who was a director on all of their previous works (K, Copellion, and Seitokai Yakuindomo) along with Shingo Suzuki, who seems to be the main director and character designer in all of this. But Copellion and Seitokai Yakuindomo were based on manga, while K is based on the whole story/world created by GoRA (the K anime is just a small part of the whole "project").
So this is just like... what? Who wrote it? (If you can even call it "writing"). I wouldn't be surprised if they'd rather stay anonymous, though...

what the hell was with the animation on this show? There were actually parts that looked rather pretty when there wasn't that much going on or it was simply a more slow scene. there was tons of detail in those panels, but then there were the panels that made me feel like I was about to throw up and was about to have a seizure. They did this random shit with the camera, having it pan around like that really made everything look strange as hell (not to mention the fish eye stuff in the beginning which really made me sick.).

As for the plot, nothing special. Guy is outcast (which isn't really true since girl with large boobs seems to like him.) and he finds some girl who reminds him of past trauma which leads to scifi power and a battle vs an S/M couple.

I think this show might beat spiritpact as the worst anime of this season.

Possibly the strongest negative reaction I have seen to a show so far this season. ... I will have to judge it for myself.

Hmm...the MC who just can't stop being helpful, the boob physics on the classmate (those things bounced with the slightest twitch or breeze, I swear!), the borderline S&M hentai with the one Handshaker team and what's with that title?! Handshakers? Really? I know they have to hold hands and maybe the name is fine in Japanese, but in English it just doesn't seem right. There's a lot of CG in this one and that's fine, I didn't mind most of it (I've seen far worse). But overall, this is...not what I expected. I'll give it another go for episode 2 but right now this one isn't looking good for something that I want to watch. I don't normally gripe over anime like this but this one seemed to justify it

And so we have what could only be described as Duran Duran the anime. With character designs from a 2006 Type Moon videogame, with the feel and plot to match, and lush, unique, Ufotable-esque animation. Overall, I was very impressed by this and I think we could have a sleeper on our hands. Either way, I can't wait for the Funimation dub of this to come out.

EDIT: The name is still stupid and alot of the main plot doesn't quite make sense

For me, first impressions are important. And, well, that was a spectacularly bad visuals-on-acid BDSM trainwreck. Not to mention I feel horrible for poor Bind, too, as her treatment from Break was utterly disgusting. I'll admit that I was left feeling meh towards K, but at least K, while unsatisfying as a whole, was nowhere near as bad as this.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but I may around stick to see if HS turns into one of those 'so bad it's good' titles.
