“Hand Shakers” takes place in Osaka in “AD20XX”. The story revolves around Tazuna Takatsuki, a high-school student with a knack for mechanics, who accepts a certain repair request and visits a university research facility. There, he meets Koyori Akutagawa, a lone girl asleep on a bed. As though being led by something, Tazuna touches her fingertips—and a voice flows into him from a place unknown. Tazuna is left bewildered as a new world, Ziggurat, lies before him. Now together as Hand Shakers, the duo must fight to earn the right to confront God, where they will be able to make a wish. With “Nimrods”, powers born from one’s psyche after holding hands, the many groups of Hand Shakers must battle to defeat God.

Tazuna (タヅナ) / Tazuna Takatsuki (高槻 手綱, Takatsuki Tazuna)
Voiced by: Sōma Saitō[7] (Japanese); Justin Briner[8] (English)
A kind high-school student who is especially good at mechanics and is always running around doing repairs for other people. He is more focused than the average person, but worries about the fact that this makes him unaware of his surroundings. He became a Hand Shaker after holding hands with Koyori while she was sleeping in a laboratory. Koyori, who will die if he lets go of her hand, reminds him of his younger sister who died. This motivates him to protect her as Koyori does not have a Nimrod to fight by herself. Chizuru later gives him the code name of “Single Gear”. In W’z, Tazuna currently travels around the world in order to look for clues about the whereabouts of Koyori’s twin, Mayumi, and her partner, Nagaoka.

Before meeting him, she had been put to sleep to conserve her life force, but after having her hand held by Tazuna she woke up and they became Hand Shaker partners. She reminds Tazuna of his younger sister and even though is expressionless and does not speak, she is extremely compassionate and cares very deeply about Tazuna. Koyori receives the code name “Sprocket Gear” from Hibiki after successfully activating her Nimrod. The 13th episode reveals that she only survived her coma because Musubu, Tazuna’s younger sister, had previously authorized the donation of her organs before her death. In W’z, Koyori works as a researcher at Kita Asuka Academy. She hoped to find her twin sister, Mayumi, together with her partner, Nagaoka. Unfortunately, she was no longer able to use her Nimrods.
