Best OST of the season.
Best animated show of the season, also stylistic choices might be jarring for some. Still not even LWA competes (though quality might drop later, which happened with [K] as well).
First anime to be watched in VR device like Occulus/HTC for proper experience
First Vaporware art genre anime
Fixed [K] fujoshi problem by replacing fujo bait with lolis
Quality fanservice
Best Ost

Basically its glorified full length AMV and unless after 5 minutes your feel dizzy and losing body balance, absolutely worth watching.

Good tier:
Masamune-kun no Revenge, inconsistent female lead, somewhat fun male lead, enjoyed the op too

3 episode rule tier:
Gabriel Dropout, pretty average sol which might be fun for a few episodes depending on how they handle char relations and the jokes

Dropped so fking hard tier:
Kobayashi, meh it wasn't bad but wasn't worth watching either
Youjo Senki (ugly char designs AND shitty storytelling which both the manga/ln did interestingly enough that I was disappointed with how the anime handled it)

Mostly they are known for Seitokai no Yakuindomo though, and Sup Forums is looking forward for its movie.

Aside from that they made best Cyberpunk anime since GitS

Recommendations to watch something are fine if you're using them to find something to watch as often enough popular opinion is popular opinion for a reason.

Recommendations to not watch something however is often wrong as you may miss out on gems you otherwise would not have (e.g. if you listened to Sup Forums, you would never touch master of martial hearts and experience the most wtf ending as well as possibly the worst anime ever made)

Hand shakers being aoty is a meme. The dialogue is laughably bad. However, since /a/utists never talk to people, they wouldnt notice. The only good thing about hand shakers is the amount of work put into animation. Even background characters actually had character designs. Take that away and you have another absolute duo or equivalent shit. Could get better in later episodes, but for the plot and dialogue so far... It's shit.

The dialogue is laughably bad. However, since /a/utists never talk to people, they wouldnt notice.

I like how more than half the dialogue was regarding extremely abnormal scenarios but you have no problem relegating this to what some user may experience in their regular lives thus could have no understanding of, as if the concept of literature or film itself didn't exist.

I can't possibly wield magic so I should never watch a mahou shoujo show because since I was never a little girl forced with defending something or somebody. I wouldn't notice some dialogue aspects that were meant for little girls who have done such.

Handshakers lovers and haters discussion is ever existing one of modernists vs traditionalists.

Handshakers breaks new ground and ventures in new lands, creating things impossible for normal media and signifying changes to come to anime in the future.

The tradionalists as always are scared and unhappy. Same thing happened with Digital coloring in 2000.

Eventually era of static anime and flapping mouth will be gone for good though, replaced by VR like anime with proper camera work, dimensional depth and movement - with old works remaining only as concious "stylistic statement". You cant stop the progress. HS is just ahead of its time a bit.

Or the extremely awkward car fixing scene which really had no flow. Maybe all the partners just have really bad social skills and its part of the plot. Again, this is just an impression on the first episode. No need to get triggered.

The original post he was replying to was originally a post about how the show was bad because of the dialogue, giving more details and reasoning behind the dialogue in the serious seems to be reasonable.

Josiah Mitchell
Josiah Mitchell

Reread >maybe it's part of the plot
Maybe i just undermined it because the plot was too generic. But in all honesty, the way they develop their characters is poor in sensibility. It's not enjoyable and only takes away from the experience. Just because something implies a 'deep' character doesn't mean it's actually deep. At this point, these characters are just one-dimensional characterized by that one trait. You say 2deep4u but these characters haven't even reached complex yet. Again this is only the first episode. You're setting yourself up for disappointment expecting good development from something like this.

And if you want to nitpick, yes i do notice that the main character keeps his trauma behind by indulging himself in fixing things. Will the anime continue to do this? I highly doubt it. In conclusion.. It's probably shit.

Mason Hernandez

Wyatt Long

That guy is a retard who got really triggered because tons of people shit on the show. He then decided to push those "2deep4u" and "it doesn't look like shit, it's just different and innovative" arguments despite the show being just a bunch of oversued cliches.

Its not matter of "what" rather than matter of "how much".

Not even close, there's no show besides this shit that looks like k project, the only thing i can say is the characters colors are for some retarded reason are more brighter

its animation and overall visual style is much more distinct.

It really doesn't, you're just grasping at straws here, anyone who watch this would immediately know it's from the k project fags and it even handles the CG objects worse

Josiah Hill

I think I'm in the minority here thinking the Handshakers visuals are atrocious but the plot is acceptable.

Logan Perez
Logan Perez

I do tell "too deep for you" to people and its correct since there are many ADHD fags failing to comprehend the simplest concepts and ideas of the shows unless they are forcefully spoonfed. I doubt however the show is any kind of "deep" itself - its just a chuuni passion project of people making it, kinda like Flip Floppers was.

It does touch biblical themes and makes references puting the events happening and powers in context - and the interpretation of the things happening is pretty simple too: chains being dependancy, clockwork wish to "fix" things explained etc. But nothing of that makes it deep - still its "too deep" for some.

More than the story itself it is its whole concept and visuals that make a statement, one the authors even directly refernce in the show with pic related. so in essense Surrealism, Mysticism and transgression - which show masterefully perform standing out over others by breaking conventional norms.

So rather than great story, its a visual work of art akin to painting.

Jose Mitchell
Jose Mitchell

And again, it's the first episode and you're supporting unsubstantiated shit talking based on how you think it's going to go, why not wait before talking shit? Oh wait I know it's because you just want to hate on what's popular like so many other shitheads who can't think for themselves.

Luis Powell

Truly, Hand shakers is a step above any competition, and has storytelling and symbolism down to an art.

Another show might have tried explaining this loop explicitly, but hand shakers, lets you pick up on things like this mysterious time loop, obviously subtly foreshadowing to a groundhogs day episode later in the show.

Later in the same chase, there's a looped close up animation of the girl on his back, immediately followed characters and chains dissapearing from sight completely, meaning the time loop might be followed by some phenomenon where everybody's inexplicably invisible, and nobody can tell who's hand they're shaking.

There are other hints of the supernatural if you pay attention closely, character's dissapearing or reappearing suddenly. Quite a few other hints at a time loop, as character's seem to be stuck repeating the same task for 5 seconds. I also strongly suspect there's some kind of titty poltergeist, since when the class president listens to music, what should be a stationary task, her breasts move in an eerie, metronome-like fashion.

All of this in the first episode really shows how Hand Shakers has mastered the art of 'show don't tell', symbolism and foreshadowing. A lot of this is speculation right now, but if there's this much to unpack in the first episode, there's no doubt in my mind we've already got AOTY with Hand Holders.

Mason Mitchell

I shit on it because you guys make it out to be a lot better than it actually is ie people who think sao, ubw, or your lie in april as masterpieces. And they really aren't. They have glaring flaws, and i talk about those flaws to see what people have to say about them. I can't read minds so the only way to understand another's perspective is through discussion. That being said
already gave a reasonable explanation on why hand shakers can be aots. Unlike you who had no content to your post besides shit posting/personal attack because you have nothing to say about the subject in question. Seriously. Stfu cancer

Christopher Bell
Christopher Bell

I also strongly suspect there's some kind of titty poltergeist, since when the class president listens to music, what should be a stationary task, her breasts move in an eerie, metronome-like fashion.
Troll post aside, she is likely to become Hand Shaker having a bound with her Brother - anime hinting that she always comes into personal space of people "because she has a brother" she is deeply intimate with

Chase King
Chase King

I never tried to make it seem better than it was, I just responded to an user that was trying to make it seem like the only reason an /a/non appreciated the dialogue was because they had no possible way of appreciating genuine dialogue which is both a silly assumption and irrelevant to the story being told. From there I got dragged into defending it being the best anime ever, which I didn't say. Then to it being "2deep4u" which I also didn't say. I don't know what to say, I'm not trying to say it's the greatest ever but from there I'm not allowed to take the stance of "It's terrible!" Can I not just say it's not as bad people make it seem without claiming how inevitably great it's going to be?

I thought the 'obviously subtle forshadowing' would give it aways, but yeah. There's already one successful troll in this thread, I wasn't trying too hard for subtltey.
I actually loved watching this show, but I feel like it's trolling the hardest. I honestly can't believe the first episode could look like this if they weren't actively trying to make it bad.

If you were the katoura user i apologize. The discussion was entirely about handshakers and sarcasm user trying to defend it against the me that was saying that its 'shit because the plot/ characters arent good', in which sarcasm user replied that it was 2deep4u. Then shitstorm and
this user actually had something to say about hand shakers potential as aots.

For some reason Gabriel rubs me the wrong way, maybe because she reminds me of my pathetic life or some shit. However I loved Satan and her devil friend (who is actually probably an angel or something) so I'm sticking around for them

Most the people who are watching demi, read the manga as it frequently had threads on here. The first episode was pretty enjoyable along with nice art and a main character that isn't a high schooler for once. For the most part, it's a breath of fresh air from the usual high school comedy since the mc isn't the loud/obnoxious tsukkomi-type.

Kayden Rivera

I watched the first episode of chain chronical before learning its a video game adaptation, didn't think it was that bad. CGI actually felt okay; will it end up being shit?

There is little point watching it if you didnt play the game and you didnt.

Just wait for Granblue anime, which will be more accessable and actually good (and you can play a game meanwhile which is in english)

Handshakers looks good
It's ugly as sin, the way 60 SILKY SMOOTH FPS chains are animated is unbearable to watch, considering everything else has the animation quality of Shadowstar Narutaru. The rotoscope scene is the only one that was good, hence why people keep reposting it, but everything else is poor quality.

Maybe Little Witch Academia, i haven't seen it yet, but i'm also not that interested in it since i thought the second OVA was quite bad. Maybe i'll watch the first episode now, and hopefully it will be as good as the first OVA

Now if it had a similar premise, but without magic and it was cute girls fighting in dirty trenches with normal guns.

I'd watch that.

Benjamin King
Benjamin King

The actual premise is that the Salaryman MC died, then basically tipped his fedora in front of God (who he called Existence X), making God mad enough that he reincarnated him as something he fucking hates (helpless, cute, female) in a world he would be uncomfortable with (salarymen don't exist yet, militaristic, everything is at war, highly religious nation), and that she's given a superweapon that she is repeatedly forced to use but erodes her sense of self with every use by literally brainwashing her into loving God.

Is it worth watching or is it garbage? This season is a little weak so I was thinking of picking it up from 2011.

I could also just start watching all 2,000 episodes of Gintama.

Robert Cruz

Its a second season of the show. Why are you even asking if you didnt watch the first? Also while its Fujo bait, its a decently animated shounen - at least better than say currently airing Sousei no Onmyouji. But its so mediocre the only people sticking with it are fujos, same as with D Gay Man or Hitman Reborn

Luis Price
Luis Price

The only fujo bait is edgy twin lusting after his brothers power. They don't have a ton of interaction and the MC has a canon female love interest. I think it's pretty good by shounen standards (at least the manga) it's been a while since I've seen the anime.

Just start with current season and look up stuff in wiki - its very well maintained, and watch past episode if want to see specific events.

Or better yet watch Movies first to see if thats a thing for your taste. Then OAVs/specials since they are mostly original or in opposite focus on key events either way standalone.

But as said - you can just jump in http://www.detectiveconanworld.com/wiki/anime#Season_25_-_Episodes_779-present

779 being start of most recent season.
