Those who receive the Revelation of Babel must overcome many battles and trials. By grasping the hand of their special partner, these "Hand Shakers" transport themselves to the realm of Ziggurat, an alternate dimension where time no longer exists. Each pair of Hand Shakers must battle it out for the right to meet with God, who will reward them by granting them a single wish. Tazuna Takatsuki, a high school student with a penchant for fixing things, is one of these Hand Shakers. After receiving a request for repairs from Professor Makihara of a nearby university, Tazuna stumbles upon Koyori Akutagawa, a bedridden girl that reminds him of his deceased sister Musubu. Remembering her dying wish to never let go of her hand, Tazuna grasps Koyori's hand and awakens his power as a Hand Shaker. However, Koyori's life is directly tied to her status as a Hand Shaker, meaning if Tazuna was to ever let go of her hand she would die. With meeting God being their only hope for saving her, the duo must find a way to make their unique powers mesh together, overcome the opposing Hand Shakers, and make their wish come true.

This show looks like it was done by 4 different teams who never talked to eachother and written by a 14 year old who just discovered anime.


Stay away from this show at all costs. It’s so lazy, so mundane and so incoherent that it makes me want to throw up just thinking about it.


The animation makes my eyes bleed.


The only time I felt actual rage towards a creative work was when I watched the first episode of this show. Irredeemable.


Like a train wreck except a plane full of explosives crashed into the trains before they collided


Nothing to see here move along young senpai. you shall miss nothing


Best hate watch I ever had. Every week I looked forward to watching it get worse and worse.
