Hand Shakers Series Review

In case it doesn't become immediately obvious, this review has zero objetivity and is mostly just a rant. Please feel free to ignore and check out one of my other actual reviews. Overview: I could be really snarky here but let's just go with it's the story of co-dependent people who have a mental disorder … Continue reading Hand Shakers Series Review

Hand Shakers Episode 12

Review: This show and I do not mesh but this is the toned down version of the rant because the first draft was unpublishable in every sense of the word. So, let's just fight, a lot, with attacks we've never seen before and don't know the rules of so don't really have any reason to … Continue reading Hand Shakers Episode 12

Hand Shakers Episode 11

Review: So some of the missing pieces were explained, through a heavily narrated way too long flashback sequence. You know when ACCA decided to give us the backstory, they gave it to us from the perspective of an interesting character and we gained more of an understanding of the world and the characters we were … Continue reading Hand Shakers Episode 11

Hand Shakers Episode 10

Review: Nothing, nothing, nothing, random glasses guy from previous episode appears, "Before I end this, I'll tell you everything." Episode end. That is what happened this episode. Unless you enjoy watching Tazuna and Koyori team cook or enjoy creepy brother and sister team showing up for some stilted and pointless interaction, there's really nothing else … Continue reading Hand Shakers Episode 10

Hand Shakers Episode 9

Review: Visually this episode went to a new low on the completely ugly side of things and instead of anything resembling actual plot progression we get an extended fight with the villain from last week (which almost makes you wonder why they didn't just wrap the fight up then). A few pressing questions came to … Continue reading Hand Shakers Episode 9

Winter 2017 Week 8

Week 8 and things are heating up in some shows as we close in on the end of the season. I'm genuinely going to be sad to see March Comes in Like a Lion come to an end. I really enjoy waking up on Sunday to a new episode of it. ACCA I'm looking forward … Continue reading Winter 2017 Week 8

Hand Shakers Episode 8

Review: In a show where they can waste ten minutes on exposition that explains nothing, I probably should not be surprised by this episode. Essentially we meet an idol mid-fight as she takes out two opponents and maybe the dance would be cute except for the incredibly creepy animation making it nearly unwatchable. So, complete … Continue reading Hand Shakers Episode 8

Winter 2017 Week 7

From following Twitter, it definitely seems there's a lot of mid-season dropping going on with people getting half-way through a show that kind of looked like it had potential but then failing to deliver. Even people who don't normally drop mid-season are finding themselves making the choice to let something go. That said, there's a … Continue reading Winter 2017 Week 7

Hand Shakers Episode 7

Review: Eventually I will get over this meshing thing. No, I won't. And now apparently its contagious because other characters are saying it. Yikes. Anyway, there's pretty much nothing else worth talking about in this episode. Instead of developing the guy who might be god, the point of the fighting, what hand shakers are, or … Continue reading Hand Shakers Episode 7

Winter 2017 Week 6

Week 6 and we're half-way through any anime that are running 12 episodes. I'd hesitate to say that this is a terrible season given there are some good shows running and a few that I haven't been able to watch at all, but really, I think this is probably my worst season for dropping things … Continue reading Winter 2017 Week 6
