Yukiya Araki. Probably 14 years-old.

I usually am DJing somewhere alone. Thanks to my parents influence, I have been listening to house music since I was little. I also upload videos of myself DJing from time to time.

I have something that I want to say. I want to be recognized and wanted, but I am scared of being hurt. But my daily life tends to not be on the same wavelength of others.

One day, I did something in order to increase my views, but now I cannot undo it.

I went live in “that world.”

Now something is coming after me and I am being dragged into a whirlpool of the wishes and feelings of people. I’m in a situation where I cannot do anything on my own... but, if I had someone with me...

Three Episode Impression

Ten years have passed since several Hand Shakers entered the Ziggurat and met ‘God’. However, the world of the Ziggurat still exists and those who can enter this mysterious place continue to do battle for varying reasons. One young inspiring DJ named Yukiya Araki has been told to avoid holding hands with anyone for some unknown reasons. Despite the warnings, Yukiya learns what his powers allow him to do and equally cause many other Hand Shakers to vie for his gift. What awaits Yukiya as he gets involved in the unseen battles that take place in a separate dimension!?

W’z surprised us originally here at Honey’s Anime when we learned it was actually a sequel to the ‘not so loved’ series Hand Shakers. However, after watching the first several episodes of W’z we can see some vast improvements here and there. The animation style looks a tad cleaner with some emphasis on making movements during conversations and fights look sharper as well as a more intriguing story that ties in with Hand Shakers’s ending. W’z might not be the best anime of 2019 in comparison to other shows currently airing but we’re seeing some potential to at least be a stronger series than its predecessor.
