Hand Shakers is set in Osaka sometime in 20XX. A brand new powerful weapon, "Nimrodes," has emerged in the world where the technology has moved to a new level. In order to set up Nimrodes, two people should shake hands thus calling Nimrodes out of their souls. Each boy-girl duo thus has their own wish they intend to bring to life. The best couple has a chance to challenge God.

A storyline centres on Tazuna Takatsuki, a high school student, who is addicted to mechanics. Therefore, he accepts the invitation to visit a university research facility. Here, he accidentally encounters Koyori Akutagawa, a girl asleep on a bed. Succumbing his internal intention, Tazuna touches her hand and hears a voice that pulls him into an unknown place. Thus, Tazuna found himself in a new world, Ziggurat, where the couple should cope various challenges in order to get an opportunity to confront God. However, as turned out, it's not an easy task to confront the many groups of Hand Shakers who want to realize their wishes.

Tokyo MX is yet to decide will Hand Shakers be renewed for a next season or canceled. Stay tuned for updates. We'll keep you informed on the subject!
