He wants to convey something to someone. He wants to be recognized, and become important. But getting hurt is scary. One day, while trying to get more views, he does something that can’t be undone. And he sees a live broadcast from “that world.” Yukiya believes he can’t do anything alone, but that he could accomplish something if he were doing it together with someone else.

I see that they R tried to appeal to the non anime views and they might have a break dance anime show who knows


Considering how bad Hand Shakers Bombed, Let’s hope GoHands recovers with this one.

W’z, Ep 1, is live at HIDIVE


Ep 1


It’s basically an indirect sequel to Handshakers. As if GoHands shouldn’t have cut bait and run after that disaster. 1st episode starts off with an irregular guy who can handshake with anyone and brings bad luck to both himself and the person he joins hands with. Leads up to a fight and the girl with him foresaw her own death, so yeah this is going to be a big angsty guilt trip of a show. I’ll give it a few more episodes to see if I’m going to stick with it, but I couldn’t get past the first episode of HandShakers, so this is a slight improvement, Your mileage may vary
